UK Leads Roto Moulding Market
AMI, Applied Market Information Ltd, has issued a report on rotational moulding. According to this study, it accounted for less than one percent of polymer consumption in Europe in 2006 involving just over 300 companies.
The distribution of rotational moulders across Europe is notably different compared with most other plastics processing with the United Kingdom and Ireland having the largest number of moulders.
According to AMI rotational moulding is still largely the preserve of small businesses. Out of 315 companies listed in the guide just over 200 are privately owned. However recent years have seen some consolidation in the industry and the emergence of a leading international group through the acquisition activities of the Icelandic investment group Atorka. The other leading group in Europe is the UK based Kingspan PLC.
Details on the operations of all these companies as well as the many other smaller players can be found in AMI’s guide.
