After experiencing a rapid development in the past ten years, China has already become a major producer of polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) in the world, possessing a capacity of 21,700 t/a in 2013. Driven by government support, Chinese PVP’s quality and production scale has been greatly improved, thus attracting more and more attention from both domestic and overseas markets. In recent years, both the domestic consumption and export volume of PVP made in the country have kept an uptrend.

In 2013, the apparent consumption volume of PVP in China was over 7,000 tonnes, attaining a CAGR of 4.93% during 2009-2013. Of this, only a small part of high-quality goods was imported for application in pharmaceuticals. Pharmaceuticals, daily chemicals and office supplies keep being the top three downstream fields of PVP, capturing over 90% of the country’s total consumption of the product in 2013. Driven by deepening research and the improvement in production technology, PVP's consumption in the downstream industries will keep rising in the future.

However, like most chemical industries in China, China’s PVP industry is also troubled by overcapacity, especially since 2009. Meanwhile, as the production process of PVP is of high-pollution, most PVP producers in China have begun to remove their production sites into suburb areas to reduce impact on residents nearby. Anyway, it is estimated that both the capacity and output of PVP in China will keep growing in the next few years as driven by the growing demand for PVP. Fortunately, although the capacity of PVP in China has kept stable during the past few years, but the operating rate has improved much.
