Report Overview

The global bio-based polyvinyl chloride market size was valued at USD 640.79 million in 2022 and is expected to grow a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.3% from 2023 to 2030. The increasing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly materials in various industries has emerged as a significant driving factor for bio-based polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Traditional PVC, which relies on petroleum-based feedstocks, has faced criticism due to its environmental impact, including the release of toxic chlorine gas during production and slow decomposition in landfills. Bio-based PVC, on the other hand, is manufactured using renewable resources, such as biomass-derived ethanol or plant-based plasticizers. This not only reduces the carbon footprint but also helps in mitigating the dependency on fossil fuels.
