Middle East

In recent years the Middle East region has developed not just as a significant producer of plastics materials but has also seen the growth of important domestic plastics processing markets. The countries in the Middle East form a diverse group of economies including the Gulf Co-operation Council (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, United Arab Emirates & Qatar). Turkey is also considered to be an important player in the Middle East as it seeks a more important economic and political role within the region.

AMI has gained a unique insight into this region to produce reliable data on the plastic industry. We have a number of reports, studies and conferences which look at plastics and related markets from a Middle East perspective. We publish a series of free digital magazines providing news, analysis and technical information about a range of processes and markets which include coverage of Middle Eastern markets. In addition to Middle East wide databases and directories AMI Publishing can also supply databases concerning the processor base in Middle Eastern countries. If the country or the process you are interested in is not shown in the published list, below, use the custom database request form to ask for a specific quote to meet your needs.

AMI Conferences organise a considerable number of events including coverage of Asian subjects. Some of our conferences deal in detail with the Middle Eastern markets including regular conferences on Flexible Packaging and Plastics Pipes.
