According to preliminary data from the American Chemistry Council (ACC), PVC exports from the US declined in October due to lower production stemming from several shutdowns. Exports posted a third consecutive monthly decrease in October, declining by around 23% on the month to 281.281 million pounds (140,640 tons) to post the lowest levels seen since April 2014. PVC production, meanwhile, declined 15.1% to 1.038 billion pounds (519,000 tons), the lowest level since 2014.

In the first ten months of the year, the country’s PVC exports fell by 65 million pounds (35,500 tons) to reach 3.818 billion pounds (1.909 million tons) from a year earlier while production slipped 370 million pounds (185,000 tons) to 12.178 billion pounds (6.089 million tons) from 12.548 billion pounds (6.27 million tons) in the same period of 2014.
