Plastics Remain a Growth Industry

Plastics Remain a Growth Industry

Just since the last K in 1998, total global production of plastics has risen by more than 12 % or 20 million tonnes, from 158 million tonnes in 1998 to 180 million tonnes in 2000. Within the European Union, some 47 million tonnes of plastic were produced in 2000. One in every four tonnes of plastic in the world now comes from the countries of the European Union. The industry can therefore embark on K 2001 with impressive production figures. However, because of the very sharp increase in raw material costs, which can only partially be passed on to the market, margins are continuing to come under pressure. The plastics industry is countering the resulting pressure on costs by restructuring and concentrating its strengths. Overall, however, plastics producers are very optimistic about the future.
