Vinylidene Chloride (VDC) and Polyvinylidene Chloride (PVDC) Manufacturing Industry. Investment Opportunity for Entrepreneurs

The predominant demand for VdC / PVdC is in the food and pharmaceutical packaging sector

Vinylidene Chloride (VDC)

Vinylidene chloride, also called 1,1-dichloroethylene, a colourless, dense, toxic, volatile, flammable liquid belonging to the family of organic halogen compounds, used principally in combination with vinyl chloride, acrylonitrile, or methyl methacrylate for the manufacture of a class of plastics called saran. Vinylidene chloride is also used as a starting material for making methylchloroform, or 1, 1, 1-trichloroethane, and a solvent useful in cleaning electrical machinery.

Vinylidene chloride is used as an intermediate in chemical synthesis and to produce polyvinylidene chloride copolymers. The primary acute (short-term) effects in humans from vinylidene chloride exposure are on the central nervous system (CNS), including CNS depression and symptoms of inebriation, convulsions, spasms, and unconsciousness at high concentrations. Low-level, chronic (long-term) inhalation exposure of vinylidene chloride in humans may affect the liver. Animal studies indicate that chronic exposure to vinylidene chloride can affect the liver, kidneys, CNS and lungs. Human data are considered inadequate in providing evidence of cancer from exposure to vinylidene chloride. The most recent cancer classification for vinylidene chloride can be found on IRIS.


·         Vinylidene chloride is used as an intermediate for organic chemical synthesis.

·         Vinylidene chloride is also used in the production of polyvinylidene chloride copolymers.  The major application of these chloride copolymers is in the production of flexible films for food packaging.

·         These copolymers are also used extensively in many types of packing materials, as flame retardant coatings for fiber and carpet backing and in piping, coating for steel pipes, and adhesive applications.

Market Outlook

The global Vinylidene Chloride market is valued at million US$ in 2017 and will reach million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of during 2018-2025.

The Vinylidene Chloride market is expected to witness high growth owing to the high growth in the Paint Industry, the food & beverage industry and the Semiconductor industry. The paint industry is projected to see more than 6% CAGR growth in the next seven years due to the increasing end use demand for architectural & decorative wall paints, increasing industrial demand especially in automobile industry, and global economic development. The Food & beverage industry is expected to see growth of more than 7% CAGR by 2022 due to the growing end user consumption, similarly the Semiconductor industry is expected to see growth of more than 10% CAGR over the forecasted period mainly due to the growing demand of electronic components applications in automobile industry, smartphone industry, and other digital type industry.

On the basis of end-user industry, the vinylidene chloride market is segmented into pharmaceutical, food & beverage, agriculture, manufacturing, construction, automotive, electronic, and cosmetic. In terms of volume, the food & beverage segment accounted for the largest share of more than 40%, while, the market share for pharmaceutical was estimated to be more than 25%. In the forecasted period, the market is expected to grow largely by the demand from pharmaceutical industry and from construction industry. The less growth is expected from the food & beverage industry due to the increasing awareness about its restraints in food packaging and growing substitutes such as EVOH (Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol). Thus, the expected growth rate is less than 6% CAGR by 2022, in terms of volume.

Vinylidene Chloride (Thousands Units) and Revenue (Million USD) Market Split by Product Type such as Vinyl Chloride-Chlorine Process, Vinyl Chloride-Chlorine Hydride Process, 1,2-Dichloroethane-Chlorine Process, Others. Furthermore, the research study is segmented by Application such as Polyvinylidene Chloride Industry, Organic Synthesis Intermediates, Others & Other with historical and projected market share and compounded annual growth rate.

Polyvinylidene Chloride (PVDC)

Polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC), a synthetic resin produced by the polymerization of vinylidene chloride. It is used principally in clear, flexible, and impermeable plastic food wrap.

The applications of Polyvinylidenechloride (PVDC), are predominantly packaging and barrier films, often as the barrier layer in multi-layer structures.

The outstanding property of PVDC is its low permeability to water vapour and gases—making it ideal for food packaging. Copolymers of vinylidene chloride and other monomers are also marketed. The best known is Saran, a copolymer consisting of about 87 percent vinylidene chloride and 13 percent vinyl chloride. Saran was introduced by the Dow Chemical Company in 1939 and is still a widely used transparent food wrap.

Market Outlook

PVDC plays an important role in blister packaging as coating or lamination on PVC. The gas and moisture permeability of PVC blister packaging is reduced to certain extent with the use of PVDC. Moreover, it provides an excellent barrier to both water vapor and oxygen.

The global PVDC food packaging market is expected to register decent growth during the forecast period driven by the middle class of developing countries. Demand for packaged food is rising in emerging regions due to the rapid urbanization and growing disposable income. Growth in such regions in expected to impact the food packaging industry positively. Specialty material such as PVDC is gaining importance in the food packaging market. The increasing demand for packaged food and beverages together with growing use of packaging material in various food service outlets and expanding working population has given impetus to PVDC food packaging market. The feasible properties of PVDC make is one of the most favored raw material for food packaging.

The PVDC material meets the requirements of the governing authorities of North America and European region as it has lower environmental impacts. This factor acts as a driver for the global PVDC food packaging market. The PVDC film is environment-friendly which makes it suitable for the use of food packaging. The PVDC increasing demand of PVDC films in the packaging of processed meat, cheese, bread, snacks and the instant food is anticipated to grow the market during the forecast period. The market for PVDC food packaging can be segmented on the basis of application as dairy products, fruits and vegetables, pet food, baby food, confectionary, Meat, Poultry & Seafood, and others. The meat, poultry and seafood segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.

The global PVDC market in terms of value is expected to reach above $xx million by 2019, growing at a significant CAGR from 2014 to 2019. North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW) have been segmented in the global PA 46 market report.
