Plastic Industry Market Research & Statistics

Global Plastic Industry

 

Plastic products are used in a wide array of commercial activities from leisure and nutrition to communication and transport. Plastics are also particularly important due to their role in recycling as governments and consumers look for ways to lessen the burden on the environment. For example, recycled plastic household products, such as containers and bottles, can be used to make a range of products including fleece jackets, carpets and lumber.

 

Plastics are used in a variety of consumer products and industries. One of the most common uses is preserving food; polyvinylidene chloride, polyethylene polypropylene are used to wrap foods (meat, vegetables), drinks (milk, juice) and products such as butter, respectively. They are necessary to prevent food from becoming spoiled, to protect from illness and to preserve the nutrient content of food. The medical industry uses plastics in a range of equipment like tubing, intravenous bags, gloves, masks, syringes, lab ware and stethoscopes. Plastics are also used in home insulation, PVC pipes for plumbing, transportation, clothing (spandex, polyester and nylon), and electronics such as mobile phones.
