August 17, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “North America Ethylene Dichloride (EDC) Market Report by Product Type (Technical Grade, Pharma Grade), Application (Vinyl Chloride Monomer, Ethyleneamines, and Others), and Country 2024-2032,” the North America ethylene dichloride (EDC) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% during 2024-2032. 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.

North America Ethylene Dichloride (EDC) Market Trends:

Significant growth in the construction industry is driving the market in North America. Additionally, there is an increasing trend of replacing metal pipes with PVC-based alternatives in water treatment plants, power transmission infrastructures, food processing units, and petrochemical complexes, due to the rising number of refurbishment activities. Furthermore, the pharmaceutical sector in North America is experiencing a growing demand for ethylene dichloride as it is utilized in the manufacturing of anesthetic drugs extensively used in various surgical procedures, thus propelling the market's growth. Moreover, the expanding oil and gas sector in the region is contributing to the demand for ethylene dichloride, especially in oil and shale gas exploration and production activities. This includes its application in drilling and hydraulic fracturing procedures across the mining and oil and gas industries. Besides, the use of ethylene dichloride in producing various chlorinated solvents plays a significant role in textile, and metal processing, further fuelling the market in North America.
