Report Description

The production capacity of Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC) was 871.52 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is forecast to grow in the upcoming years. This can be attributed to the growth factors like rising urbanization and an increase in residential construction activities that will majorly contribute to the growing chlorinated polyvinyl chloride market. Also, chlorinated polyvinyl chloride is used in fire sprinkler systems. Due to its durability, ease of fabrication and installation, and speed, it is commonly utilized in commercial and institutional structures.

More focus on R&D of CPVC

CPVC is manufactured by chlorination of PVC polymer, thereby raising the chlorine content from 56% to around 66%. Technology licensing for CPVC resin & compound manufacturing is controlled by Lubrizol, Arkema, Kaneka, and Hanwha Corporation. As mentioned above, companies patent the technology, focusing more on development in this area since competition is low, so the emergence of new players is expected in the future.

Rising Application in Construction Sector

Increasing use of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride in industrial and residential construction activities due to its firm, durable, lightweight, cost-efficient, heat, pressure-resistant, and other versatile characteristics are helping to boost the market growth. In the construction sector, the pipes and fitting segments are dominant due to increased industrial and residential applications and the ability to withstand higher temperatures than plastic pipe systems.

Widespread use in Storage and Distribution of Water

The use of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride in water storage and its distribution can be seen due to its superior qualities like heat resistance, immunity to corrosion by chlorinated water, insulation properties, hydrolysis resistance, resistance to chemical corrosion, and leakage, and potential to reject microbial bacteria during distribution. Moreover, chlorinated polyvinyl chloride pipes are used in cold countries to transport hot water as they can withstand higher temperatures than regular piping without shrinking, dissolving, or breaking.
