Polyethylene Markets in the EU 2022

Polyethylene Markets in the EU 2022

To be published: September 2022

The Polyethylene Processor in Europe has an ever-increasing array of grades to choose from.  One of the consequences of this abundance of choices is that the customer base is increasingly sophisticated and is demanding a different level of service and support from the resin supply industry.  Understanding the needs and trends of customers is increasingly essential for further profitable growth.

The study provides a detailed, independent assessment of the European PE industry, looking at both past and present trends and developments, and giving a studied medium-term forecast, which will assist companies with their future investment and decision-making programme.
