About This Report


The Primary Form Plastics Manufacturing industry, although small, forms a key component of the plastics value chain. According to the British Plastics Federation, UK plastics industries dominate in three core areas: material and additive manufacture, material processors and machinery manufacture. Primary form plastics comprise polymers or resins and are used in the production of thousands of products. These are ultimately used in various end markets including packaging, transportation, construction, electrical and electronic products, furniture and machinery. Developments in these industries affect the level of usage of primary form plastics.

This industry includes companies involved in the manufacture of resins, plastic materials and non-vulcanisable thermoplastic elastomers. It also includes companies involved in the mixing and blending of resins on a custom basis and in the manufacture of non-customised synthetic resins.

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.
