Containing growth: Environment concerns continue to swell, limiting sales of many plastics

The Primary Form Plastics Manufacturing industry's revenue is set to dip at a compound annual rate of 1.2% over the five years through 2022-23 to £5.3 billion; it's forecast to swell by 2.6% in 2022-23. Petroleum is a key input for most plastic products, so revenue and profitability can move in line with oil prices, which are historically very volatile. For example, a drop in the price of crude oil in 2018-19 enabled plastic manufacturers to increase average selling prices slightly, supporting growth in industry revenue but slashing profit. This industry includes companies involved in the manufacture of resins, plastic materials and non-vulcanisable thermoplastic elastomers. It also includes companies involved in the mixing and blending of resins on a custom basis and in the manufacture of non-customised synthetic resins. This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
