Polyvinyl Chloride - Market Size, Market Share, Market Leaders, Demand Forecast, Sales, Company Profiles, Market Research, Industry Trends
US polyvinyl chloride (PVC) demand will reach 15.8 billion pounds in 2006 based on cost, strength, versatility and processing advantages, as well as the development of enhanced resin grades. Good opportunities are expected in areas such as pipe, window profiles, fencing, decking, and PVC sheet used in high clarity packaging.
This study analyzes the $5.3 billion US polyvinyl chloride industry. It presents historical data (1992, 1996 and 2001) and forecasts to 2006 and 2011 by process type (e.g., extruded, calendered, molded, dispersion coated); and by end-use market (e.g., pipe and fittings, siding, windows and doors, flooring, fences and decks, packaging, wire and cable, furniture and furnishings, medical products, motor vehicles).
The study also examines the US market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 39 key companies including Shintech, OxyVinyls, Georgia Gulf, and Formosa Plastics.
