Top 50 players in key markets

The trend of the leading players in the plastics industry reinforcing their dominance through rationalisation is greater than ever and is driven by keeping operating costs down as well as spreading their production worldwide. As capacity is becoming concentrated in the hands of fewer and fewer companies, competitiveness between these large groups is very fierce.

The 50 leading groups in each publication have been selected on their total polymer throughput.

The data is available in book or PDF format.

AMI's series of leading company profiles identifies who are the most important 50 holding companies or groups for each specific production sector and for each top 50 player provide you with:

  • Corporate and ownership details
  • Business review including latest acquisitions and divestments
  • Financial results
  • Individual European operations listed by site including estimates of polymer throughput
  • Specific comments on the company's specialisations

For a complete list of processors in specific areas then please click on Directories and databases.

For a more detailed analysis of polymer supply and demand then click on Statistical reports.
