Based on type, the PVC recycling market has been segmented into rigid PVC, flexible PVC, and chlorinated PVC. Rigid PVC is commonly used for various products, including pipes, window frames, and siding. It is a durable and robust material that can withstand harsh weather conditions and is often used in construction and industrial applications. Rigid PVC has high demand in the PVC recycling market because it is well-suited for recycling as it can be easily melted down and reformed into new products without losing its structural integrity.

Based on application, the PVC recycling market has been segmented into pipe and fittings, window profiles and doors, flooring, wires and cables, facade, automotive interior, traffic cones, exterior gardens, PVC awning, rainwater gutter, electric gutter, roofing membranes, and automotive underbody protection. PVC window profiles are a common component in residential and commercial buildings. PVC window profile recycling involves collecting, sorting, and processing discarded window profiles to produce recycled PVC materials that can be used to manufacture new window profiles. Recycled PVC window profiles offer several advantages, including reducing the use of virgin PVC, conserving natural resources, and reducing energy consumption in manufacturing. Recycled PVC window profiles can meet the same performance standards as virgin PVC, making them a sustainable alternative for window manufacturers.
