The article reports on the plan of Pakistan-based polyvinyl chloride (PVC) producer Engro Asahi Polymer and Chemicals to expand its plant in Karachi by 50% to 150,000 tonne per year. The 20% domestic demand for PVC has led the company to become a net importer of the product. It is said that PVC is becoming a key material in the construction sector due to the continued increase in steel prices.
