Polyvinyl Butyral Market
This report, from Stratview Research, studies the PVB resin market over the trend period of 2012 to 2017 and forecast period of 2018 to 2023. The report provides detailed insights into the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
The Global PVB Resin Market Growth and Forecast:
Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) resins are used in applications where strong binding, optical clarity, adhesion to surfaces, toughness, and flexibility are required. The major route of manufacturing PVB resin is a reaction between a polyvinyl alcohol and butyraldehyde. Over the years, PVB resins have been widely used in automotive applications as an interlayer in the windshield. They are now increasingly used in luxury cars to make side and roof glass with the purpose to increase safety and reduce noise and light transfer. Furthermore, they are also used in architectural applications for window covering with the purpose to promote energy saving and reduce noise. PVB resin also finds applications in solar panel encapsulants but its relatively a small market at a present scenario.
The global PVB resin market is projected to grow at an impressive CAGR of 4.5% during the period of 2018 to 2023. This represents an attractive growth opportunity in the entire ecosystem of the market. Organic growth in the automotive and construction industries; an increasing demand for energy-saving buildings, growing disposable income in emerging economies, and growing concern towards global warming are proliferating the growth of the PVB resin market.
PVB Resin Market: by Product Type
The PVB resin market is segmented based on the product type as Films & Sheets, Paints & Coatings, Adhesives, and Others. The films & sheets segment is expected to remain the growth engine of the PVB resin market during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023. An increased usage of PVB films & sheets in industries, such as automotive, construction, and photovoltaic for energy saving and noise reduction are the major factors that are proliferating the demand for PVB films & sheets.
PVB Resin Market: by End-Use Industry
Based on the end-use industry, the PVB resin market is segmented as Automotive, Construction, Photovoltaic, and Others. The automotive segment is expected to remain the most dominant segment of the PVB resin market during the forecast period. An extensive usage of PVB films & sheets in the automotive industry to increase safety and to reduce noise and light transfer is primarily driving the demand for PVB resins in the automotive industry. Additionally, increasing automobile production is likely to boost the demand for PVB films and sheets in the coming years. It is estimated that approximately 608.5 million units of automobiles (passenger cars, LCVs, and MHCVs) are likely to be produced worldwide during the next five years (2018-2023).
PVB Resin Market: by Region
Based on the regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest PVB resin market during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023. The region is also likely to experience a healthy growth during the same period. Rapidly expanding automotive and construction industries in the developing economies of the region, such as China and India, is the major driving factor behind the dominance of the Asia-Pacific region in the PVB resin market. Out of the total vehicles produced worldwide during 2018-2023, approximately 54.2% will be produced in Asia-Pacific only, mainly in China, Japan, South Korea, India, and Thailand.
Europe is projected to remain the second largest market during the forecast period, driven by both automotive as well as construction industries. There has been an increasing usage of laminated safety glasses in the architectural industry in the region.
