Description

Global Markets, Economics, Environmental Impact, and Technology

"Polyethylene Bottles" is a global study of the polyethylene bottle industry. This study provides technology assessments, economic comparisons, environmental impact comparisons, industry drivers, geographic trends, market statistics, market forecasts, and profiles of industry participants.

The market section evaluates the polyethylene bottle market by end-use, geography, formulation, and many other segments. The measurement units include volume in number of bottles and value in U.S. dollars.

The economic and environmental evaluation compares a "standard" PE bottle, a PE bottle manufactured with biopolyethylene, and a PET bottle.

"Polyethylene Bottles" includes rankings and profiles of polyethylene resin producers for blow molding, bottle producers, and equipment suppliers.
