CHEMMONITOR.COM - The US domestic market for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is currently experiencing the consequences of the recession.

The PVC companies active in North America were influenced by economy slowdown. Therefore, currently, there are pipe and siding companies that operate not in full but only at the rates of 55-65%. Meanwhile, the operating rates of PVC resin manufacturers  are at about 90%. PVC producers active in the local North America market can easily cut the exports to satisfy consumption from the domestic field.
