Polymers have found uses in all spheres of life with demand for better materials, greater functional utility, more economical packaging and versatile and durable all weather products. PVC is a chlorinated hydrocarbon and is a thermoplastic material. Thermoplastic materials are those that can be melted again and again. These materials can be heated to a certain temperature and will harden again as they cool. Its long life excellent resistance to chemicals, its self extinguishing resistance to chemicals, its self extinguishing and electrical properties and availability in a wide range of colours give it an edge over other plastic materials. P.V.C. is of special interest of developing countries like India as it is used in the building industry. It is a substitute for item and steel and non ferrous metal and replaced lead and aluminium. It is also a supplementary material for goods of bulk consumption such as leather and rubber and for electrical insulation paper gloss for containers wood for lamination paneling and asbestos. Nowadays, PVC is commonly used in the construction sector, for example in window frames and shutters, pipe cabling and coating, etc. PVC can be used for tons of other applications from industrial ware and widely used in the healthcare sector, to car spare parts, toys factory, food packaging, raingear, etc. There exist different PVC grades such as coast or blow film, high impact, wire and cable grade, thermoforming, injection molding, rotational molding, etc. PVC is one of the world's most widely used polymers because of its versatility, excellent inherent properties and cost effectiveness, and yet its sensitivity to the processes used to convert it into end products make it a challenge for any PVC compound producer. Developing tailored grades of PVC compound to suit specific performance requirements calls for a wealth of formulation knowledge, technical experience and an in-depth understanding of processing. Success in the laboratory has to transfer not only to the process but also to the individual equipment on which the compound is converted into usable product. The Indian industry has created enough capacity to export polymers in substantial quantities. With the steady build-up of capacities, the downstream products industry is increasingly accessing local supplies. The supplies have expanded from IPCL's Nagothane plant, Reliance's Hazira plant, Finolexs Raigad plant, and South Asia's PET project at Haldia. With the start-up of Reliance's polypropylene plant, the position changed further. India has over 22,000 processing units with a turnover of about USD 6 bn. The plastics machinery industry supplies more than 3000 machines per annum to the industry. India is one of the fastest growing polymer market in the world, and is expected to become the world's third largest polymers market, with a consumption of 12.5 mn tonne, after the US and China, in 2010. The significant domestic demand growth is expected from the user industries such as telecom, food and beverages, packaging, transportation and consumer durables, and from continued substitution of traditional materials like wood, metal, glass. There exists a very good opportunity and ample scope to venture into this field for new entrepreneurs. Few Indian Major Players are as under: Amartara Plastics Pvt. Ltd. Cybele Industries Ltd.
