The Plastic Bag and Film Manufacturing industry in Australia is a highly mechanised, domestically focused industry with few value added opportunities to offer new entrants. In the past five years, IBISWorld estimates that the industry suffered an annualised decline in revenue of 2.6%. In that time, costs rose and firms struggled to pass these rises onto consumers because of increased cheaper import competition. Additionally, various governments and companies either banned or put a levy on plastic bags. The increased price benefits associated with imported products saw demand for the industry's products suffer, as many consumers shifted to imported goods.
This industry consists of enterprises that manufacture thin plastic film, food wrapping, plastic bags and garbage bags.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
