Resilient resin: Revenue to bounce back over the next five years due to improving demand and input costs

Over the past five years, the Plastic and Resin Manufacturing industry in Illinois has suffered revenue decreases, due mainly to weak manufacturing activity in the state, as well as volatile prices for key inputs. While both the residential and nonresidential construction sectors have rebounded and showed strong growth over the five years to 2017, demand from these industries could not offset the lack of demand from the declining manufacturing sector, or the falling prices of natural gas and crude oil. However, over the next five years, however, these trends are expected to reverse. Input prices are expected to rise, and manufacturing is expected to show modest growth, which, in conjunction with continued strong demand from the construction sector, is expected to boost industry revenue...purchase to read more.
