CPVC can be described as a Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) that has undergone a free radical chlorination reaction. Chlorine is added to PVC in a fluidized bed chlorination process or a water slurry to produce CPVC. Ultraviolet light initiates the chlorination process. For further processing, the chlorinated PVC is compounded with materials required for the desired characteristics.

The addition of chlorine to PVC improves CPVC's temperature performance and fire & corrosion resistance. Because of its low cost, high thermal distortion temperature, chemical inertness, and good mechanical, dielectric, flame & smoke capabilities, Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC) has become a prominent engineering thermoplastic.

The wide range of CPVC applications will drive its global demand in the coming years due to its superior capabilities and efficient & simple installation. CPVC is a modified form of PVC, which is a more stable polymer that can withstand higher temperatures than standard PVC. PVC has a chlorine concentration of 56% - 57%; however, after chlorination, CPVC has a chlorine content of 63% - 67% on its hydrocarbon chain. Moreover, other significant properties, such as corrosion resistance, prominent mechanical strength, and extremely high flash ignition rate, are expected to propel the chlorinated polyvinyl chloride market growth during the projected period.

On the other hand, the brittle nature of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride pipes and the greater costs associated with their maintenance & repair due to leaks and damages may offer a significant barrier to product penetration. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the global CPVC industry. Due to nationwide lockdown and trade restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the production and consumption of CPVC materials have witnessed an exponential decline in demand.
