Global Vinyl Records Market is segmented on the basis of product type, application, and region.The vinyl record is a type of gramophone record, most popular from the 1950s to the 1990s, that was most commonly used for mass-produced recordings of music. A vinyl gramophone or phonograph record consists of a disc of polyvinyl chloride plastic, incised on both sides with a single concentric spiral groove in which a sapphire or diamond needle, stylus, is intended to run, from the outside edge towards the center.
Vinyl records were prominent for numerous reasons other than storage and reproduction. Musicians learnt that the covers and sleeves used to protect the vinyl could also be used for artistic purpose.
