Plastic Film, Sheet & Bag Manufacturing in Canada
The Plastic Film, Sheet and Bag Manufacturing industry has been facing improving domestic demand conditions over the past five years as the Canadian economy has recovered from the economic downturn. However, industry growth has still been limited, stifled by import competition from US manufacturers. Over the five years to 2023, imports will increasingly meet domestic demand, and domestic manufacturers will face pressure from foreign competition. The United States will continue to supply the vast majority of imports and, as a result, domestic operators will likely look to consolidate to compete against US counterparts.
This industry converts plastic resins into various films, sheets and bags. Industry products are used by manufacturers for packing and storing products, by retailers for transporting merchandise and by consumers for household purposes. Industry operators also form, coat or laminate plastic film and sheets into single-wall or multiwall plastic bags.
