Plastic Products Miscellaneous Manufacturing in the US

The Plastic Products Miscellaneous Manufacturing industry has experienced five years of steady growth, as demand within the industry's downstream markets have improved with the US economy. Operators rely heavily on several key industries to purchase their products. In addition to slowed downstream demand, overseas competition is constraining revenue growth.
