Polymer Demand in the Indian sub-continent

Polymer Demand in the Indian sub-continent

Date of publication: March 2015

The Indian sub-continent has established itself as the most exciting and dynamic emerging market in the world and is one full of potential and investment opportunities.  With a population greater than China but with a polymer demand less than one-fifth the size, the region is expected to enjoy strong growth in its polymer and plastics processing industries over the next decade.

The market in the region is driven by its increasingly globally-minded governments that are introducing policies to encourage foreign direct investment and facilitate closer integration with the worldwide economy, helping to drive investment in petrochemicals, polymer production and downstream plastic processing. Growth in the region is not only fuelled by such policy relaxations but also by rising urbanisation of a large, youthful, population, leading to greater consumer spending for items that require plastics - from packaged goods to mobile phones and automobiles. While much of these products are still imported, there is now considerable investment occurring in plastics processing operations to support manufacturing investments, driving growth in polymer demand; those that understand and participate in this market now will reap the benefit of future growth.

AMI’s new report, the first of its kind for the Indian sub-continent, examines the size, structure and future prospects of polymer demand for this region. In addition, the study provides an in-depth statistical analysis of where demand is currently occurring and the nature of the processing that is carried out there, with an assessment of where growth is likely to arise.

What this report will give you 

The report provides a complete and consistent statistical dataset for polymer consumption by polymer, by process and by country. Key highlights of the nature of the demand by each polymer, process and country are also given.

Published as a single volume report, the study is divided into 7 easy-to-use sections covering polymer demand by resin type, processing technology and region.

This is set in the context of a global market overview.
