This report was created for global strategic planners who cannot be content with traditional methods of segmenting world markets. With the advent of a "borderless world", cities become a more important criteria in prioritizing markets, as opposed to regions, continents, or countries. This report covers the top 2,000 cities in over 200 countries. It does so by reporting the estimated market size (in terms of latent demand) for each major city of the world. It then ranks these cities and reports them in terms of their size as a percent of the country where they are located, their geographic region (e.g. Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, North America, Latin America), and the total world market.

In this report the author defines the sales of engineering plastics as including all commonly understood products falling within this broad category, such as polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), and fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) fluoropolymers; polyacetals; poly oxymethylene; nylon 6 and 66 polyamides; polycarbonates; polymethyl methacrylates (PMMA); polyphenylene oxide and polyphenylene ether blends (PPO/PPE); polyphenylene sulfide (PPS); styrene copolymers acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and styrene acrylonitriles (SAN); polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) thermoplastic polyesters; polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified (PETG) and polycyclohexylenedimethylene terephthalate glycol-modified (PETG) copolyesters; liquid crystal polymers (LCP); polyether ether ketone (PEEK); polyimides (PI); and plastics used within the automotive and transportation, building and construction, consumer goods and appliances, electrical and electronic, industrial and machinery, and packaging industries, irrespective of product packaging, formulation, size, or form. Companies participating in this industry include BASF, Covestor, Celanese Corporation, DuPont, Solvay, and LG Chem. In addition to the sources indicated, additional information available to the public via news and/or press releases published by players in the industry was considered in defining and calibrating this category. All figures are in a common currency (U.S. dollars, millions) and are not adjusted for inflation (i.e., they are current values). Exchange rates used to convert to U.S. dollars are averages for the year in question. Future exchange rates are assumed to be constant in the future at the current level (the average of the year of this publication's release in 2021).

This study covers the world outlook for engineering plastics across more than 2,000 cities. For the year reported, estimates are given for the latent demand, or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.), for the city in question (in millions of U.S. dollars), the percent share the city is of the region, and of the globe. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a city vis-à-vis others. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each country and across countries, latent demand estimates are created. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.

This study does not report actual sales data (which are simply unavailable, in a comparable or consistent manner in virtually all of the cities of the world). This study gives, however, Professor Parker's estimates for the worldwide latent demand, or the P.I.E., for engineering plastics. It also shows how the P.I.E. is divided across the world's cities. In order to make these estimates, a multi-stage methodology was employed that is often taught in courses on international strategic planning at graduate schools of business.
