Bottled up: Rising demand from downstream customers will stabilize industry revenue

Plastic Bottle Manufacturing in the US

The prevalence of plastic containers and bottles has not kept the industry immune to economic volatility. The industry has had to contend with production abroad, changing consumer tastes (with regard to soda consumption) and reduced spending during the recession. However, import penetration will level out over the next five years, consumer spending will continue its recovery, and demand from downstream customers will return, stabilizing industry growth.

Operators in this industry manufactures a range of bottles from various plastic compounds based on their end use. These bottles are then sold to beverage, food and chemical manufacturers to use as packaging for soft drinks, milk, condiments and household and automotive chemicals. This industry does not manufacture reusable plastic bottles or other plastic containers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
