North America

North America consists of Canada, USA and Mexico, these three countries form the North American Free Trade Association known as NAFTA. AMI produces a number of reports, studies and conferences which look at plastics and related markets from a NAFTA perspective. Our free digital magazines provide news, analysis and technical information about a range of processes and markets which include coverage of NAFTA markets.

AMI Conferences organise a considerable number of global conferences devoted to the plastics industry including coverage of North American subjects. Our North American subsidary Applied Market Information LLC organise conferences in North America covering regional topics and markets as well as global subjects.

All of AMI's NAFTA studies, publications and databases can be ordered on this site and will be shipped from the UK. If you are based in the North American region it would be more cost effective to order direct from our North American office based in Wyomissing PA. Please email or call +1 610 478 0800.
