Polymer demand in Asia

Polymer demand in Asia

Published: February 2017

Polymer demand in Asia is the sixth edition in a new series of regional data reports from AMI Consulting.  Each report draws on AMI Consulting’s unique, in-depth knowledge and understanding of the downstream plastics processing value chain to provide unrivalled detail in quantifying the volume of polymers used across all major plastics processing technologies on a country by country basis. 

AMI's new report, the first of its kind for Asia, provides a detailed statistical analysis of where demand is currently occurring and the nature of processing that is carried out there, with an assessment of where the growth opportunities are likely to arise.  The report is designed for quick and easy use by the subscriber, with sections detailing the dynamics, size and structure of each individual country, along with a review of each resin type and processing sector within the region.

Polymer demand in Asia is the latest report from AMI which aims to remedy the lack of information apparent in the market, by providing an up to date and thoroughly researched report on the status and future trends for standard and engineering thermoplastic polymers within this important world market.
