Global Thermoplastic Industry 2012-2017: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis

  • Published: July 2012
  • Region: Global
  • Lucintel

China and India are expected to drive the thermoplastic industry due to low-cost labor availability, and downstream processing capacity additions are anticipated to contribute to steady industry growth in Asia Pacific (APAC). The industry, which had good growth over the last five years, is expected to continue that growth momentum to reach approximately US $440 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 4% over the next five years.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global thermoplastic industry and presents its findings in “Global Thermoplastic Industry 2012- 2017: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis.”

The global thermoplastic industry is fragmented. APAC dominates the market and represents 41.4% of global revenue. A combination of factors such as feedstock price (crude oil and naphtha) and availability, scale and technology, ethylene sourcing, energy costs, distribution costs, environmental issues, and government regulations are likely to influence industry dynamics significantly.

Lucintel’s research indicates that after facing a recession-driven decline in 2009, the industry effectively recovered READ MORE >
