Global Construction Plastics Market Segmentation, Demand and Supply 2023

Construction Plastics Market Segmentation

The global construction plastics market has been segmented by type, application, and region.

Based on type, the market has been segmented into polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene, polypropylene, polyurethane, polycarbonate, polystyrene, and others. The polystyrene is further sub-segmented into expanded and extruded polystyrene. PVC accounted for the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Proliferating demand for PVC in residential and commercial construction for an array of applications like, flooring, piping, and roofing. The properties of PVC such as flexibility, lightweight, and easy maneuvering has led to an augmented demand for PVC in an array of construction applications such as cladding, roofline, and rainwater provisions adding substantial value to the global construction plastics market application.


Based on application, the market has been segmented into flooring, window, piping, ducts, insulation, roofing, walls, and others. Pipelines accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Plastic components are widely used in construction for interior and exterior applications such as piping, pipe fittings, water services, and others, which is expected to drive the demand. The pipeline segment is followed by insulation and ducts which is expected to grow at significant CAGRs during the forecast period with the increasing awareness regarding energy efficient building and construction.
