PVC Manufacturers Poised for Strong Growth

Jan 2017

U.S. and Canadian manufacturers saw PVC sales rise almost 5 percent in 2016, according to data released by the American Chemistry Council (ACC). Coupled with strong exports, this made 2016 a good year for vinyl resin manufacturers.

PVC pipe sales, and projected continued growth as states and municipalities come to grips with the need to upgrade their drinking water infrastructure, suggest strong growth will continue in 2017.

The projections for 2017 growth coming from both the ACC and industry insiders were detailed in a recent article in Plastics News.
