World Analysis - Vinyls
IHS Chemical World Analysis - Vinyls is an annual study that covers historical trends and forecasts for vinyl’s supply/demand fundamentals over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast). Clients receive detailed data on vinyl’s and major derivatives in 10 geographic regions with ten-year market forecasts.
Stakeholders in the dynamic global vinyls market require forward-looking analysis. Global PVC capacity expansions are slowing around the globe, due to poor margins in the industry. Producers are faced with finding cost efficiencies or exiting the market. Future PVC demand growth will depend on economic development, associated rising living standards and industrialization—all of which feed into new construction and infrastructure projects requiring vinyl materials. Prospects for increased consumption as well as export growth remain greatest in emerging market economies with large populations, including China, India, Brazil and Indonesia.
IHS Chemical World Analysis - Vinyls examines historical trends and long term projections for supply/demand, production, capacity, and trade of the global vinyls industry over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast).
Included with the IHS Chemical World Analysis - Vinyls is 12-month’s access to IHS Chemical’s online capacity and supply/demand databases, with updates to the capacity database as they occur and one update to the supply/demand database. The study’s conclusions, with text and graphs, are provided online; as are the Excel files for the supply/demand flat file and the regional supply/demand graphs.A partial list of vinyls derivatives covered includes:
- Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
- Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM)
