The Polyester and Other Plastic Fibre Product Manufacturing industry has an advantage over its competitors, as industry composite products have flexible performance capabilities and are superior in many ways to alternatives. Over the past five years, the industry has successfully competed with firms in other industries that target the same customer markets. By offering customers products with superior attributes, whether performance- or price-related, industry participants have siphoned revenue away from external competitors. However, IBISWorld expects that downstream demand for industry products has been constrained by weakness in domestic manufacturing.
This industry manufactures a range of composite plastic products that are reinforced using rigid fibres. Fibreglass is a common example of the type of materials used by the industry. The industry's products include water tanks, swimming pool shells and roofing sheets.
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.
