Further growth will be threatened by maturity in film/ sheet uses and environmental concerns in the bottle segment. PVC packaging applications will account for about 8% of total North American PVC demand over the next decade, the study says. 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 $2꽤.
