PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is utilized as a common plastic material for building and construction, given its abrasion resistance, mechanical strength, cost-effectiveness, safety, and low environmental impact. In developed nations, expenditure on residential construction and infrastructural renovation projects has risen. In September 2022, the in the U.S. residential construction sector registered revenue of over USD 925 billion. Such factors will augment the demand for materials with technical advantages in building and construction applications and consequently boost the profitability of vinyl chloride monomer manufacturers.
 

Despite the favorable growth trajectory, the use of VCM is associated with negative health impacts. Short-term exposure to this compound may impact the central nervous system and result in dizziness, headaches, and drowsiness, limiting product usage to some extent. However, there has been a rising emphasis on amplifying PVC manufacturing expansion.

Vinyl chloride monomer market share from building & construction end-use segment will register revenue worth over USD 100 billion by 2032. The strong government focus on infrastructural development and megacity construction projects is a key factor bolstering product use, especially in emerging nations. Based on data from IBEF, in Union Budget 2022-2023, the Indian government allocated USD 130.57 billion to push the growth of the infrastructure sector. Such initiatives will escalate the adoption of durable and cost-effective PVC across the building and construction sector and in consequence, fuel the demand for vinyl chloride products.
 

Additionally, VCM market value from the healthcare end-use segment is slated to cross USD 1.5 billion by 2032, as a result of its broad application scope in life-saving blood bags and medical devices. There has also been a rise in awareness of the high performance, safety, versatility, and low cost of PVC, making it suitable for use in single-use medical device manufacturing. Rising budget allocation to boost health systems will therefore drive VCM usage over the estimated timeline.
