Thermoplastic Resins: United States

Thermoplastic Resins: United States

This report forecasts to 2023 US thermoplastic resin demand and production in pounds. Total demand is segmented by type in terms of: high-density polyethylene (HDPE); linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE); low-density polyethylene (LDPE); polypropylene (PP); polyvinyl chloride (PVC); polyethylene terephthalate (PET); polystyrene (PS); and other thermoplastics such as acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polycarbonate (PC), and bioplastics.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand, total production, the various segments, and trade are provided in annual series from 2008 to 2018.

Reported quantities of thermoplastic resins are limited to neat resin excluding additives or fillers. For the purposes of this report, ""thermoplastics"" and ""thermoplastic resins"" are used interchangeably. Re-exports of thermoplastic resins are excluded from demand figures.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
