Consumption Analysis of Chlorinated Polyolefins from 2016 to 2020 Vs Market Projections for 2021 to 2031

According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, over the past half-decade, global volume consumption of chlorinated polyolefin resins increased at a CAGR of around 3.7%. Global volume consumption as of 2020-end stood at around 1,160 KT, of which, pipes & fittings as an end use accounted for around 1/2 of total consumption.

Additionally, projections are that the advanced properties of chlorinated polyolefins such as impact- and heat-resistance are poised to drive consumption over the decade.  

Attributed to application of chlorinated polyolefin as an excellent adhesion promoter and impact modifier, positive growth of around 4.6% CAGR is being projected for the forecast period of 2021 to 2031.

Further, pipes & fittings and use of chlorinated polyolefins in paints & coatings continue to drive the global market, which is expected to expand 1.5X by 2031-end.

Moreover, use of PVC resins as a substrate to produce chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) is expected to dominate global consumption, standing at around 657.4 KT by 2021-end, thus helping in gaining 103 BPS in its market share by 2031. These estimations for CPVC consumption have been put in place by tracking investments and expansion of production facilities globally.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic had an impact on revenue generation capability of companies as production facilities were shut down and demand for chemicals dipped. The market is set to recover and jump to pre-COVID levels owing strong positive upsurge in demand from key end-use sectors over the coming years.

Will High Sales of Pipes & Fittings Bolster Demand for Chlorinated Polyolefin?

Polyvinyl chloride pipes are widely used for various plumbing and sewage applications in the commercial and residential sectors. PVCs have higher anti-corrosion and degradation properties as compared to other polyolefins, and hence, their use is usually recommended by various industry professionals.

However, PVC pipes are not recommended for use above a particular threshold temperature point, thus limiting their use in industrial and various commercial application. Since CPVC pipes have a higher temperature threshold, their adoption rate has seen a surge over the past half-decade.

Moreover, rise in housing and construction activities coupled with usage of chlorinated polyolefins as PVC pipes & cable compounders is poised to propel demand for PVC as a substrate, thus driving its consumption at a CAGR of around 4.8% over the decade.     

Which Properties of Chlorinated Polyolefin Make it Fit for Varied End Uses?

Chlorinated polyolefins showcase excellent adhesion properties when used for coating applications. Since conventional polyolefins such as polyethylene, polypropylene, and TPO have low surface energy, they tend not to adhere to coatings for a longer period of time.

Hence, chlorinated polyolefin adhesion promoters use case in automotive parts for better coating and surface finish has remained lucrative over the historical period. Thus, usage of chlorinated polyolefins as adhesion promoters is poised to provide the market with an absolute $ opportunity worth US$ 403 Mn through 2031.

Additionally, Fact.MR projects that chemical application as an impact modifier to be used in pipes & fittings will provide the market with the highest absolute $ opportunity whilst rising at a CAGR of around 4.8% through 2031.
