China leads the world in both production and consumption of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and demand will rise eight percent annually through 2010. Extruded PVC will gain market share. Construction will remain the largest application while packaging uses will surpass the consumer and institutional segment to become the second largest PVC market.
This study analyzes the 44.5 billion Chinese PVC industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by process (e.g., extruded, molded, calendered, dispersion coated); by product (e.g., windows and doors, pipe and conduit, wire and cable, film and sheet); by market (e.g., construction, consumer and institutional, packaging); and by geographic region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 29 major players including Sinopec, Shanghai Chlor-Alkali Chemical, Formosa Plastics, Tianjin Dagu Chemical, LG Chem, Jinlu Group, and Cangzhou Chemical Industry.
