Saudi Arabia PVC Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2020 – Polyvinyl Chloride

Saudi Arabia PVC Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2020 – Polyvinyl Chloride

Polyvinyl Chloride, also known as PVC, is the third most widely used synthetic plastic polymer of the thermoplastics family, after polyethylene and polypropylene. Sold in two forms, namely, rigid and flexible, PVC is produced from VCM (Vinyl Chloride Monomer) and is usually supplied in the form of pelletized material (compounds) with additives already blended in it. Increasing focus towards construction and infrastructural developments is driving the PVC market in the Kingdom. PVC demand in Saudi Arabia is inclined more towards rigid PVC, which has witnessed moderate growth over the last five years, owing to its increasing usage in end user industries. Prominent rigid applications include PVC pipes, PVC window profiles, etc., whereas flexible PVC applications encompass PVC cables and cable sheaths, flooring, etc.
