The global polyvinyl alcohol market is estimated to garner a large amount of revenue and grow at a CAGR of ~6% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be primarily attributed to the growing use of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) in the construction industry materials, such as joint cement, drywall mud, caulks and sealants. In addition to this, robust growth of food and packaging industry, and upsurge in demand for sustainable packaging owing to stringent regulations associated with proper disposal of waste are also expected to bolster the market growth in the upcoming years. In 2020, approximately 99 million kilograms of convenience food was produced around the world, up from about 83 million kg and 82 million kg of the same type of food produced in 2019 and 2018 respectively. Furthermore, there is a rise in opportunities for PVA in the electronics sector for producing devices such as transistors requiring high dielectric permittivity. This in turn is projected to push the slope of market growth upwards and offer lucrative prospects to manufacturers in the near future.
The market is segmented by end-use industry into paper, food packaging, construction, electronics, and others, out of which, the food packaging segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global polyvinyl alcohol market. This can be accounted to the largescale usage of PVA as a binding and coating agent in the industry for applications where moisture barrier or protection properties are required. Along with this, increasing purchasing power in emerging economies, and growing consumer emphasis on ordering groceries online. Additionally, on the basis of grade, the partially hydrolyzed segment is predicted to acquire the largest share during the forecast period ascribing to the escalating applications of this grade of PVA as a packaging agent in high moisture food ingredients as a gas barrier.CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
