Plastic products companies manufacture packaging materials, film and sheet, foam products, plastic bottles and all other plastic products which have domestic and industrial applications. These companies use polymers and resins as raw materials which are primarily sourced from polymer suppliers and processes used in plastic products manufacturing include compression molding, extrusion molding, injection molding, blow molding and casting.
The global plastic products manufacturing market was valued around $998 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest region in the plastic products manufacturing market in 2017, accounting for around 45% of the total market. China was the largest country in the market accounting for around 22% of the total market.
The practice of using 3D printing in plastics manufacturing is becoming more common. This technology produces solid objects from digital designs by building up multiple layers of plastic, resin, or other materials in a precisely determined shape.
