Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Revenue for the Basic Plastics and Synthetic Resin Manufacturing industry is estimated at $174.2 billion in 2015, up 7.5% from 2014. Over the past five years, revenue has been growing at an annualized rate of 14.1%. Growth slowed in the beginning of the five-year period due to the lingering effects of the global economic crisis of 2009. Foreign demand for industry products has yet to rebound, and domestic growth has slowed. Specifically, downstream industries like building construction (IBISWorld industry report 4710) and household electronic appliance manufacturing (3954) have been suffering since the government stimulus package of 2010 came to an end.
