Polyvinyl Chloride Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2017 - 2025
Polyvinyl Chloride Market: Snapshot
The market for Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) has made giant strides in the chemical and materials industry over the past three decades. The growth has been substantially fueled by the myriad applications of this versatile thermoplastic polymer in a wide spectrum of industries, such as construction, automotive, healthcare, packaging, electronics, and sports. The immense potential of the usage to which PVC can be put to in these applications is attributed to the potentially attractive structural and performance profile of the materials. The application of PVC is found to be especially promising in manufacturing panoply of medical devices to meet the variety of needs of the healthcare industry world over. The usage of PVC-based devices in the medical sector is made possible by making adequate modifications in surface. Relentless research have been done in the past few years to modify the surface properties of PVC to make them more biocompatible, reduce the surface hydrophobicity, remove unwanted protein adsorption, and eliminate bacterial adhesion. This is a significant trend expanding the horizon of the market. As a result, engineers have been tinkering with the strategies for making PVC surface treatments pertaining to the material bioactivity, optical, mechanical, and dielectric properties. The extensive application of plasma treatment to make some particular modification is a case in point. This may induce superficial functionalities making PVC fit for some demanding applications in the medical industry.
Some of the other techniques used for the surface treatment are high energy irradiation that includes UV treatment, and ozone treatment. Advancements in each of these technologies are expected to unlock promising prospects in the overall market. High energy irradiation may attract massive investment owing to costly equipment; nonetheless, they are safe as they don’t emit hazardous materials. Efforts are being made to find inexpensive methods of altering the surface chemistries but any noteworthy success has evaded engineers so far.
