  • Over the short term, rising demand from the building and construction sectors, as well as rising demand from the healthcare sector, are some of the factors driving the growth of the market studied.
  • On the flip side, rising environmental concerns, the availability of substitutes in various applications, fluctuating raw material prices, and stringent government regulations are some of the factors hindering the growth of the market.
  • Furthermore, the emergence of bio-based vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) and advancements in the product through research and development are expected to provide numerous opportunities over the forecast period.
  • Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global vinyl chloride monomer market, and it is also estimated to be the fastest-growing market over the forecast period due to the increasing demand from building and construction sectors in countries such as China and India.

Vinyl Chloride Monomer Market Trends

Building and Construction Sector to Boost Market

  • Vinyl chloride monomer is considered one of the notable chemicals used in various businesses. It is a colorless, combustible gas at room temperature. Vinyl chloride monomer is mostly used in the production of polyvinyl chloride, which is utilized predominantly in the building and construction industry.
  • In the construction industry, the vinyl chloride monomer is utilized in siding, roofing, wire, and window outlines. 
  • According to US Census Bureau, the value of commercial construction in the United States amounted to USD 114.79 billion in 2022, which showed an increase of 17.63% compared with the previous year. 
  • According to a study by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the global construction industry is expected to reach USD 8 trillion by 2030, primarily driven by China, India, and the United States. 
  • Additionally, regions like Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa, are attracting huge domestic, as well as foreign investments for setting up industrial units, hospitals, malls, multiplexes, and hotels, as well as in the IT sector, which may add to the demand for PVC products. 
  • Moreover, increasing investment in infrastructure construction in the Middle East and Africa is expected to boost the demand for the vinyl chloride monomer market. For instance, in Saudi Arabia, the growing number of real estate developments, increasing demand for residential property, and governmental initiatives to develop socio-economic infrastructure shall drive the industry growth.
  • According to Majid Al-Hogail, the Saudi Housing Minister, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia plans to construct 300,000 extra housing units over the next five years.
