According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “North America Ethylene Dichloride (EDC) Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the North America ethylene dichloride (EDC) market to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% during 2023-2028. Ethylene Dichloride (EDC) is a chemical compound with the molecular formula C2H4Cl2. It is a colorless liquid with a sweet, chloroform-like odor. EDC is primarily produced by the direct chlorination of ethylene, a hydrocarbon derived from petroleum. It is an essential intermediate in producing vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), which is used to manufacture polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a widely used plastic in various applications. It plays a critical role in the chemical industry as a feedstock for the production of PVC, which finds applications in construction materials, pipes, cables, flooring, and medical devices, among others. Furthermore, EDC is used as a solvent in chemical processes and as a fumigant for agricultural products.
