Global Ethylene Dichloride Market Dynamics–

The increasing demand of PVC related products and various application of ethylene dichloride in manufacturing of chemical compounds as well as use of it as dispersant in rubber and plastics is the major factor driving the growth of global ethylene dichloride market. For instance; more than 90 percent of produced EDC is used in the production of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) and VCM is one of the main ingredient in the production of polyvinyl chloride. In addition, increasing use of PVC in many industrial sectors such as rigid pipe & tubing, windows & doors, resellers & compounders, calendaring, coating, wire & cable, siding and etc. is also supplementing the market growth. As PVC market is growing steadily, the EDC market is also expanding, as EDC is one of the main ingredients for PVC production. Other than that EDC is also used in the production of methyl chloroform (1,1,1-trichloroethane), ethyleneamines, perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, and vinylidene chloride (1,1-dichloroethene). Other than that, consumption of EDC by minor uses, more than 20% is used in the manufacturing of paints, coatings and adhesives, then extraction of oil from seeds, treating animal fats and processing pharmaceutical products is responsible for 23% and 19% of EDC is consumed in cleaning textile products and polyvinyl chloride manufacturing equipment. Furthermore, it is used in preparation of polysulfide compounds, grain fumigation and as a carrier for amines in leaching copper ores, in the production of color film, as diluent for pesticide and herbicides etc. However, stringent rules & regulations regarding the production and use of EDC due to its taxability may hamper the market growth up to some extent.

Global Ethylene Dichloride Market Regional Analysis–

Asia-Pacific is expected to witness a fastest growth in the global ethylene dichloride market for ethylene dichloride due to availability of cheap labor & raw materials, low manufacturing cost and moderately strict regulatory framework and rapid economic development in countries such as China and India. For instance; china had about 11% of CAGR in recent years in automotive industry and is expected to have high growth rate of more than 15% in forecast period which will also help the EDC market to grow with significant CAGR in this region. In Europe, the ethylene dichloride market will have moderate growth rate due to growing automotive production, high investment in research & development activities and strict environmental regulations. North America is expected to witness moderate growth due to high consumption potential, increasing production capabilities and rising use of EDC in various sectors. In 2015, the per capita consumption of PVC was more than 14 kg which was highest in the world. This shows that there is high demand for EDC in this region as it is used in production of PVC.
