Vinyl Chloride Prices December 2023

Product
Category Region Price
Vinyl Chloride Chemicals China 676 USD/MT
Vinyl Chloride Chemicals India 657 USD/MT


The price of vinyl chloride in China for Q4 2023 reached 676 USD/MT in December. The Vinyl Chloride market struggled as the Covid 19 lockdown in China had restricted the construction business almost completely. Finally, the onset of 2023 gave some respite to the struggling market. As the construction sector revived after a long time, demands rose for Vinyl Chloride, so the prices were on an inclined trajectory for the first quarter of 2023.

The price trend for vinyl chloride in India reached 657 USD/MT. Due to supply shortages and plant outages, the VCM market was uncertain. There were notable price shifts in the VCM market in India. Due to a lack of available stock and restricted regional suppliers, prices stayed unchanged in February. But in January, there was a lull in prices thanks to steady downstream PVC demand and constrained supply.

Vinyl Chloride Price Trend

Vinyl Chloride Market Analysis

The global vinyl chloride market size reached 46.575 Million Tonnes in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 67.56 Million Tonnes, at a projected CAGR of 4.22% during 2023-2032.

  • VC is primarily used to manufacture Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), which is widely used in industries such as building, healthcare, and electronics. The expanding global demand for PVC, particularly for building and construction applications, is a key driver of the VCM market. In 2023, the size of the world market for PVC pipes was 24.9 million tons. However, the IMARC Group projects that the market will increase at a pace of 4% CAGR from 2024 to 2032, reaching 35.7 million tons in that time. This is owing to PVC's low cost, durability, and versatility in the production of a wide range of items, including pipes and cables. 
  • The need for vinyl chloride is rising due to the global upsurge in construction activities, particularly in emerging economies. For instance, according to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, in 2022, the construction output value in China achieved its peak at around CNY 27.63 Trillion (USD 4.10 Trillion).
    The demand is also driven by government initiatives to improve infrastructure across various countries, as well as rising consumer spending on residential and commercial construction projects. In fiscal 2023, the WORLD BANK provided $12.8 Billion to support infrastructure spending in developing countries. Moreover, according to the bank, developing countries still need to spend about 4.5% of GDP annually to fund basic improvements in energy, transport, digital, and other sectors. 
  • The need for VC is anticipated to increase as the automobile industry uses PVC more and more for a variety of applications, such as interior cladding, seat coverings, underbody coating, and wire and cable insulation. Thus, one of the main factors driving the market is the expansion of the automobile industry, particularly in emerging nations. According to OICA, the United States produced 1,74,5171 million passenger cars and 8 866 384 Million commercial vehicles in 2023.
  • The efficiency and sustainability of the production of vinyl chloride are being enhanced by manufacturers due to continuous research and development and technological advancements. It is anticipated that innovations like the manufacture of VCM based on biotechnology would open up new commercial prospects. These developments contribute to lessening the impact on the environment and enhancing the general sustainability of VCM products.

Product Description

Vinyl chloride, also referred to as chloroethene in chemistry, is a colorless gas with a subtle, pleasant smell. The formula for this organochloride is H2C=CHCl. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a flexible plastic used in many different items like pipes, electrical cables, and packaging materials, is mostly made from this chemical. In an industrial setting, vinyl chloride is created by reacting ethylene and chlorine with the help of a catalyst. Apart from this, vinyl chloride is well-known for being combustible and perhaps harmful to health. It is categorized as a carcinogen since it has been connected to a higher chance of developing a rare type of liver cancer in addition to other illnesses impacting the respiratory, neurological, and liver systems.

Europe Vinyl Chloride Price

The European market's recent spike in VCM (vinyl chloride monomer) prices during the quarter ending in March 2024 was caused by a lack of providers and a reasonable level of demand. The present pricing trend is a result of challenges faced by the European VCM supply chain, including transportation difficulties related to the unrest in the Red Sea. Supply disruptions caused a decline in downstream production rates, which made market participants wary of making more modifications.

North America Vinyl chloride Price

The market in North America saw a price decline in the fourth quarter of 2023. Abundant supplies and decreased demand from downstream PVC manufacturing industries contributed to this quarter's dip. The slow pace of economic recovery and the stagnant business circumstances in the building sector contributed to the limited demand for VCM in the USA's PVC industry. Additionally, international factors, such as the Russia-Ukraine war and a drought affecting the Panama Canal, added complexity to the USA's international container logistics in the final quarter of the year.

Asia Pacific Vinyl chloride Price

In the fourth quarter of 2023, the APAC market faced difficulties. A number of important issues that affected prices and market dynamics were encountered by the market. There was a limited supply of VCM at first, which made buyers more competitive. The main cause of this restricted supply was plant closures, such as the maintenance facility closure at Formosa Plastics Corporation in the USA, which decreased the company's capacity to produce VCM. Second, in October 2023, seasonal consumption in the packaging and construction industries drove a range of VCM demand from moderate to high.
