PVC Stabilizer Market 2015 -- Global Trends & Forecasts to 2020

Expected to Reach $3.8 Billion by 2020

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - March 07, 2016) -  Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "PVC Stabilizer Market -- Trends & Forecasts to 2020" report to their offering.

The PVC stabilizer market is expected to reach $3.8 Billion by 2020, signifying firm annualized growth of 6.9% between 2015 and 2020.

PVC stabilizers are one of the most important additives used in the manufacturing of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) to avoid the decomposition of PVC during the heating process. During its manufacturing, PVC releases hydrochloride, which further decomposes it and also hampers its structure.

Thus, lead, mixed metal, tin, and organic PVC stabilizers are used to stop the chain reaction of decomposition. It is also used to enhance resistance to daylight, weathering, and heat ageing of PVC. It is widely used in major applications of PVC such as pipe & fittings, rigid & semi-rigid films, window profiles, wires & cables, and other applications such as medical and consumer goods.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest market of PVC stabilizers, accounting for nearly 57.1% of the total market size, in terms of value, in 2014. Among all the countries, China dominates the PVC stabilizers market, which registered the maximum share in 2014, followed by the U.S., Japan, and Germany.

The coatings & flooring application segment witnessed the highest CAGR of 7.3% between 2015 and 2020. Presently, the market for PVC stabilizers is driven mostly due to increasing reliance on LPG imports in many countries.

The global PVC stabilizers market is likely to offer high growth potential in the next five years. Presently, the demand for PVC stabilizers is driven due to dynamic growth in the building and construction industry in Asia-Pacific, wide application of PVC, and replacement of conventional materials by PVC in various applications.
