Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is an economical, lightweight, versatile, and high-strength thermoplastic polymer produced by the polymerization of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM). It is resistant against acids, alkalis, oils, abrasion, shock, weathering, ultraviolet (UV), and corrosive inorganic chemicals.

It also exhibits excellent durability, electrical insulation, dimensional stability, and vapor barrier properties. Moreover, its properties can be enhanced by adding several additives, such as heat stabilizers, UV stabilizers, plasticizers, impact modifiers, fillers, flame retardants, and pigments.

As a result, PVC is widely used in building and construction applications for wire and cable insulation and to produce door and window profiles and drinking and wastewater pipes and fittings.

PVC finds extensive applications in various end use industries for packaging purposes, including maintaining the integrity of household goods and personal care products and producing tamper-resistant over-the-counter (OTC) medications and shrink wraps for consumer products. It is further gaining traction as an alternative to conventional wood frames as PVC has tremendous energy-saving potential at a low cost.

Apart from this, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases is catalyzing the demand for PVC in the medical packaging of surgery, pharmaceutical, and drug delivery products like blood and plasma transfusion sets, catheters and cannula, containers for intravenous (IV) solution sets and inflatable splints.

Besides, rising sales of vehicles worldwide on account of rapid urbanization and improving purchasing power of consumers are positively influencing the utilization of PVC in the automotive industry. It is generally used in interior door panels and pockets, sun visors, seat coverings, headlining, seals, mud flaps, underbody coating, floor coverings, exterior side molding, protective strips, and anti-stone damage protection.
