Plastic has become a go-to material for packaging a number of consumer products because of its durability and flexibility. It is also easy to manufacture at a relatively low-cost. Despite the ubiquity of plastic bottles, growth in the Plastic Bottle Manufacturing industry has been relatively slow. Demand from downstream consumer product manufacturers has not surged, and import competition continues to thwart industry operators from expanding significantly. In the five years to 2020, consumers will continue to purchase food, beverage and cleaning products packaged in plastic bottles. With downstream markets remaining steady, no fundamental changes are expected in the outlook period.
This industry manufactures a range of bottles from different plastic compounds based on their end use. These bottles are then sold to beverage, food and chemical manufacturers for packaging soft drinks, milk, condiments and household and automotive chemicals. This industry does not manufacture reusable plastic bottles.
