CPVC offers greater strength for supporting heavy loads of wires. It is used for electrical products and is also utilized in covering the unconcealed wiring at home and offices. Also, it is used for electrical conduit, electrical busbars, track lighting fittings, and electrical appliances and electronic parts such as wire way, electric switch, and others.
Growing use in pipes & fittings, fire sprinkler systems, adhesives & coatings is anticipated to foster the production of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride during the forecast period.
Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride is extensively used in applications such as pipes & fittings, fire sprinkler systems, adhesives & coatings, etc. Due to its superior corrosion resistance at high temperatures, CPVC is suited for self-supporting constructions at temperatures up to 200°F. Its ability to bend, shape, and weld enables its use in a comprehensive variety of process applications such as scrubbers, tanks, and ventilation systems. It displays chemical resistance, and superior fire resistance, and is available in rods, sheets, and tubing.
It is also used in various industrial applications where resistance to corrosive chemicals and high functional temperatures are desirable. Besides it is employed in pumps, pipe & fittings, strainers, filters, valves, tower packing, and ducts. In pipes & fittings, CPVC displays higher impact and tensile strength and is non-toxic. In pressurized systems, it can be utilized with fluids up to 80°C and higher in low-pressure systems. Based on local building codes, it can be employed in hot and cold chemical distribution systems as well as hot and cold water systems. Further, CPVC finds applications in fire sprinkler systems and are widely used in commercial buildings and institutional buildings due to durability, ease of fabrication & installation, and faster installation.
Besides, CPVC fire sprinkler systems are approved for usage in schools, high-rise buildings such as offices, residence halls, churches hospitals, and numerous other facilities. Moreover, CPVC can be used in the production of anti-corrosion adhesive & coatings. Recent years have witnessed increased demand for chlorinated polyvinyl chloride in adhesives & coatings industry, owing to its properties such as superior solubility, electrical insulation, thermoplasticity, corrosion resistance, and waterproof. Further, higher heat resistance properties of CPVC than PVC make it useful for various commercial and industrial applications. Growing disposable income along with an upsurge in the number of building & construction projects has increased the demand for adhesives & coatings across the globe. Further, companies are offering CPVC that has excellent solubility, electrical insulating property, thermoplasticity, corrosion resistance, and waterproof properties. Besides, it is more easily soluble than Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) in organic solvents such as ketones, esters, and aromatic hydrocarbons. Consequently, it is widely used in the production of adhesive and coatings.
However, high cost associated with CPVC may hamper the steady growth of the market. The end-users are inclining toward PVC for numerous applications such as housing underground wires; plumbing, drainage, and sewage infrastructure; drinking and process water delivery and distribution; and agriculture, livestock and farm irrigation systems owing to high cost associated with chlorinated polyvinyl chloride. PVC is a high-strength thermoplastic material majorly used in numerous applications, such as pipes & fittings, wires and cables, films & sheets, bottles, hoses, and tubings.
Moreover, PVC has similar properties as CPVC such as lightweight, strong, durable, resistant to chemical corrosion and abrasion as well as is versatile, and easy to use and therefore, can be used as a substitute for CPVC. Nonetheless, the increase in demand for wastewater treatment and resistance of CPVC against various aggressive chemicals used during the wastewater treatment process is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the chlorinated polyvinyl chloride market growth.
The global chlorinated polyvinyl chloride market is segmented on the basis of application, end-user industry, and region.
