A key factor driving the growth of the market is the increasing demand for PVC. Polyvinyl chloride is one of the most widely used plastics, which is produced by the polymerization of vinyl chloride monomer. PVC comprises 57% chlorine and 43% carbon. Chlorine present in PVC is derived from industrial-grade salt, and carbon is derived from adding ethylene to oil or gas.

Global chlorinated polyethylene market: Increasing use of CPE in the 3D printing sector
3D printing refers to the process wherein a material is joined or solidified under computer control to create a 3D object. The 3D printing technology uses liquid molecules and powder grains as materials. The 3D printing technology is used in manufacturing, medicine, architecture, and custom art and design. The technology uses materials like acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, polylactic acid, polyvinyl alcohol, HDPE, nylon, PET, wood filament, and metal filament.
“In medical applications, CPE is used in the hot-melt extrusion process. An active pharmaceutical ingredient is combined with a thermoplastic polymer and then extruded as a rod or a film. The 3D printing technique, known as fused deposition modeling, manufactures 3D prototypes and models by melting and printing the model. 3D printing uses cellulose and filaments during printing for enhancing accuracy. Cellulose and filaments are thread-like structures made up of materials like PLA and ABS, which are used for printing,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on plastics, polymers, and elastomers.
