Global Information would like to present a market research report, "EXTRUDED PLASTICS (US industry forecasts for 2013 & 2018)" by Freedonia Group
Demand for extruded plastics in the US is projected to grow 2.6 percent per year to 34 billion pounds in 2013, valued at $23 billion (resin content only). Resins will account for 40 percent of the $59 billion final product cost. Gains will be driven by extrusion s cost efficiency, processing ease and high volume uses, as well as machinery improvements. Threats to further growth include a slumping nonresidential building construction market and maturing applications in other areas such as film and sheet.
Extruded Plastics is a new Freedonia industry study presents historical demand data (1998, 2003 and 2008) plus forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by resin type and market. The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles industry competitors.
