Extruded Plastics

As Quoted In European Plastics News

US demand for extruded plastics is forecast to expand 2.6 percent annually through 2013, supported by a turnaround in the housing market. PVC will remain the largest segment, and will be one of the fastest growing. Slower advances for LDPE will reflect saturated film and sheet applications in packaging. Extruded polypropylene will grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the 30 billion pound US extruded plastics industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by resin (e.g., PVC, LDPE, polystyrene, polypropylene, polyester) and market (e.g., packaging, construction, consumer goods, motor vehicles).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 45 industry players including Bemis, JM Eagle and Alcan Packaging.
