According to preliminary data from the American Chemistry Council (ACC), PVC production in the US increased 14.2% in November to 1.118 billion pounds (535,390 tons) from October’s 1.038 billion pounds (470,962 tons), which was the lowest level seen since 2014. PVC exports, meanwhile, climbed 37% to 385.378 million pounds (174,854 tons) in November from 281.281 million pounds (127,623 tons) in October. The fact that export PVC prices saw their lowest levels in more than 6 years in November was cited as the main reason for higher exports.

In the first eleven months of the year, the country’s PVC production fell by 425 million pounds (192,831 tons) to reach 13.364 billion pounds (6.06 million tons) from 13.789 billion pounds (6.256 million tons) from a year earlier while exports slipped 66 million pounds (29,946 tons) to 4.198 billion pounds (1.905 million tons) from 4.264 billion pounds (1.935 million tons) in the same period of 2014.
