Posted by IndustrySelect on Monday, September 9, 2019



Looking to do business with U.S. plastics manufacturers? Last week we took a closer look at the industry, providing some useful facts for B2B marketing and sales executives when it comes to doing business with this unique market.

You can read about that here. Today we're taking a look at some of the top manufacturers in the industry to give you a complete picture of where the industry stands.

As the world's population continues to increase and the urbanization of developed countries accelerates, industries that rely on materials used in day-to-day goods can only see continued growth. One such industry is plastics.

In 2017, the global plastics market was valued at $522.66 billion. Current projections expect a 4% annual growth rate for the industry globally through 2025, with plastic packaging accounting for about 35% of annual revenue.

In the United States, the plastics industry alone contributes $375 billion to the economy, making it a significant contributor to the U.S. and global economies as a whole. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. plastics industry employs more than a million people.

Despite the recent trade wars and an expected global recession that's likely have a negative effect on the United States in 2020, the U.S. plastics market maintains a strong outlook.
