North American Rigid PVC & PVC Compound Companies

Since many manufacturers of PVC materials make both rigid PVC products and PVC compounds, one list each for manufacturers of these products is included, divided into companies that produce both rigid PVC and PVC compounds versus those that only manufacture one or the other. In regard to buyers, the application of both extruded rigid PVC products and PVC compounds is immense. In fact, manufacturers of rigid PVC products are often times buyers of PVC compounds. As such, identifying specific companies as the largest buyers is virtually impossible within the scope of this research. However, detailed lists of applications and industry segments are discussed, as well as the largest importers of rigid PVC and PVC compound products and materials. In addition, wholesalers, retailers, and online marketplaces are introduced.

Of note, some sources state DuPont manufacturers PVC compounds. Until 2018, DuPont was part of DowDuPont. While research clearly shows Dow produces these products, no sources prove Dupont does. Each of the companies listed by Thomas Net as a plastic extrusion company was researched. Only those companies that list rigid PVC or PVC compounds as one of their plastics offerings are listed. Research found about a dozen additional companies in the plastics manufacturing segment located in North America, but could not identify their direct involvement with polyvinyl chloride materials, neither rigid PVC nor PVC compounds. These companies were omitted from the research report.
