Global Ethylene Dichloride (EDC) Market 2015-2019

About EDC

EDC, also known as 1,2-dichloroethane, is a clear, colorless liquid with a pleasant odor and sweet taste. Ethylene and chlorine are the basic raw materials used in the production of EDC. EDC is produced by the chlorination of ethylene through direct chlorination or oxychlorination. Over 98% of the EDC is used as a chemical intermediate for the manufacture of VCM, which is used in PVC production. Also, EDC is used in the production of various industrial and consumer products.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the global EDC market to grow at a CAGR of 3.47% over the period 2014-2019.
