Global demand for plastics processing machinery is projected to rise 6.0 percent annually through 2015 to $28.9 billion. Gains will be driven by developing nations, most notably in the Asia/Pacific region. Extrusion equipment will post the strongest gains by product, while construction will be the fastest growing market.
This study analyzes the $22 billion world plastics processing machinery industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by machinery type (e.g., injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, thermoforming), application (e.g., packaging, consumer/institutional products, construction), world region and for 30 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 44 industry competitors, including KraussMaffei Technologies, Haitian International and Husky Injection Molding Systems.
