Further growth will be threatened by maturity in film/ sheet uses and environmental concerns in the bottle segment.

By segment PVC film and sheet demand will grow 2.8% bottle demand 3.3% and closure demand 3.6%. The complete 177-page study "Polyvinyl Chloride in North America" is available for $2.
