Global Polyvinyl Alcohol Market Projected to Grow USD 1291.7 Million by 2026

08-Sep-2021 | Facts and Factors

According to a survey released by Facts and Factors, the global polyvinyl alcohol market was valued at USD 905.5 Million in 2020 and is predicted to reach USD 1291.7 Million by the end of 2026, rising at a CAGR of nearly 6.10% between 2021 and 2026.

Polyvinyl alcohol, a synthetic water-soluble polymer, has long been used as a major component in formulation processes in a variety of end-use sectors, including food packaging, construction, electronics, coatings, printing, textile, cosmetics, and paper. Because it is a polymer with good water solubility and biodegradability, it is mostly used in the food packaging sector. Polyvinyl alcohol is widely utilized in the construction sector for a variety of reasons, including improved water solubility and particle size, adsorption strength, cement porous solution viscosity, and static cement slurry filtering.

In recent years, the development of new biodegradable packaging materials has gotten a lot of attention. Polyvinyl alcohol-based end-use products have been evaluated for their biodegradation capability using renewable natural polymers. Polyvinyl alcohol material is widely utilized among biodegradable synthetic polymers because of its biodegradability in a variety of microbiological conditions. Polyvinyl alcohol is used in a variety of industries, including ceramics, textiles, coatings, paper, and wood. Moreover, identical grades of the product can be utilized for a variety of applications. This capacity has aided in increasing demand for Polyvinyl Alcohol in recent years. Because of its characteristics, such as ethanol, water solubility, and grease, and oil resistance, there are several lesser-known product alternatives available. Polyvinyl alcohol's inherent nature allows it to be used in applications that need only environmentally acceptable materials. As movements like "go green" and "reuse" gain traction, this is seen as a big plus for the product. The focus on reducing industrial applications that employ hazardous chemicals is causing a move toward ecologically friendly materials. Polyvinyl alcohol is a significant consumer in the packaging business; the product is used to make practical food packaging goods since it is a great oxygen barrier and biodegradable. Polyvinyl acetate, one of the most important industrial polymers, is made from it. Because of its excellent emulsifying and dispersion capabilities, polyvinyl alcohol makes up the bulk of vinyl-acetate. An emulsion with vinyl-acetate as a base increases the end product's characteristics dramatically It is also used in textile, paint, and coating products, building materials, and as a dispersible polymer powder.
