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 vinyl chloride monomer market development.

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.
