In India, demand for PVC is driven by the agriculture and construction sector. PVC pipes for irrigation and water distribution account for a bulk of the national PVC demand. Demand for PVC in India is huge and increasing at an annual growth rate of 7.25% from fiscal year 2011-12 to 2016-17 whereas production is frail. India is highly dependent on PVC import for fulfilling its imbalance between production and demand. Demand of PVC will be in healthy double digits from fiscal year 2017-18 to 2021-22 which will force more PVC to be imported.

RIL, Finolex, Chemplast, DCW, Shriram and Vivanta are the major producers of PVC resin and related products in India.

Global demand for polymers has reached around 260 MMTPA in the fiscal year 2017-18 and the share of PVC in total polymer consumption is about 18%.

Asia Pacific is the largest market for PVC, accounting for more than 50% of the global PVC market. Europe is the second largest market for PVC, followed by North America. China is currently the largest player in the global vinyls market, holding the largest capacity, output, and demand. As the construction industry plays a key role in the PVC market, demand for PVC is closely aligned to economic development.

In recent years, the stronger PVC consumption has been concentrated in the developing economies in Asia, such as China, India, Vietnam, and Indonesia. The common drivers of consumption tend to be a large population base with a stable political climate that still needs considerable spending on infrastructure. Northeast Asia is expected to remain the largest regional market. China will remain the largest consumer and producer of PVC in the world for the foreseeable future.
