The market research institute Ceresana analyzes the European plastics market in its recent market study. The comprehensive report is the first to give a detailed overview of all significant plastics from standard products such as polyethylene, polypropylene or PVC to engineering plastics such as ABS or fluoropolymers to bioplastics.
The Study With 700 Pages in Brief
Chapter 1 presents an analysis of the European market for plastics including the forecasts for the period up to 2022. The development of revenues, production, capacities and trade as well as the total demand split by product types and applications will be explained for 23 countries.
Chapter 2 analyzes the different application areas of plastics in detail, including flexible packaging, rigid packaging, construction industry, transportation, electrics and electronics, industrial products as well as other applications. Detailed information will be given for each country’s demand as well as the application of individual plastic types in the respective sales markets.
Chapter 3 depicts the different plastic types individually: polyethylene (LDPE, LLDPE and HDPE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polystyrene (PS), expandable polystyrene (EPS), polyurethane (PUR), polyamide (PA), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polycarbonate (PC), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polyoxymethylene (POM), SAN & PBT, and bioplastics. The revenues as well as the demand development will be analyzed for each application area and country.
Chapter 4 provides useful company profiles of the largest producers of plastics in Europe, clearly arranged according to contact details, turnover, profit, product range, production sites, capacities and profile summary. In-depth profiles of 116 producers are given, including BASF SE, Borealis AG, Bayer AG, Braskem S.A., DuPont (E.I.) De Nemours, ExxonMobil Corp., LyondellBasell Industries N.V., The Dow Chemical Company, Total S.A., SABIC, and Ineos Group, Ltd.
