Emulsion PVC Segmentation

Application (Toys, Gloves, Synthetic Leather, Electrical Cables, Sports Equipment, Stationary)

Based on application, the synthetic leather segment is predicted to account for 30% share of the global emulsion PVC market by the end of 2036. PVC emulsion is widely used in the production of synthetic leather because of its superior qualities, which include flexibility, durability, and water resistance, which make it the perfect material for the job. Vinyl chloride monomer is the starting point for PVC emulsion, a particular kind of polymer that is created via emulsion polymerization. PVC emulsion is used as a coating substance to a fabric substrate in the production of synthetic leather, giving the material a feel and look like to that of real leather. PVC emulsion coating gives synthetic leather superior qualities including durability, water resistance, and abrasion resistance.

End Use (Construction, Automotive, Healthcare)

Based on end use, construction segment is predicted to account for 40% share of the global emulsion PVC market during the forecast period. The growth of the PVC emulsion market will be strongly supported by developments in the construction industry. The construction industry is composed of sectors that are involved in production and trade, which have an interest in building, maintaining, or improving infrastructure.
