The German plastics magazine „Kunststoff-Magazin“ recently produced „The Global Plastics Market“, a special publication focusing on PVC, in cooperation with the PVC manufacturer Vinnolit. The five-page-long article provides the latest figures on PVC production, the PVC applications of and the worldwide demand for PVC polymers. It reveals that PVC has continued to extend its growth on a global level, despite the fact that the European market is currently only experiencing restrained growth. The publication also claims that the plastic is becoming more and more environmentally friendly and benefiting from global trends, so much so that the global production capacity for PVC increased to 62 million tons in 2016.
The special publication focusing on the global PVC market is available in German and English. AGPU members can download it as a PDF file from the PVC Wiki.
