Thermoplastic concentrates in NAFTA

Thermoplastic concentrates in NAFTA

Published: June 2016

The Thermoplastic Concentrate Industry continues to experience unprecedented challenges; from fluctuations in demand to raw material volatility and constant changes in customer service needs. At the same time the strategies and structure of the supply side continues to evolve. The result of this is an ever-present challenge to executive decision making and the management of participating companies.

Following steady growth in 2010-2015 we now have a more focussed industry where companies are reconsidering the paths and strategies which will enable them to aggressively grow and profitably develop the business opportunities which are emerging in the North American market. To assist in this process Applied Market Information LLC has updated its work on the North American market for thermoplastic concentrates, providing the tools to both understand the implications of the developments in recent years and also provide clarity about the future direction of the business.  

The new and fully updated report provides a current, comprehensive and authoritative analysis of this large, growing market.

Key issues addressed in the study include:

  • Changing role of concentrate producers
  • Market demand at the plastics processing industry according to volume and value
  • The status of resin suppliers and compounders as markets for concentrate
  • Status of volume  and specialized markets
  • The status of the developing market in Mexico
  • The role of customer concentration on the structure of the market, and the strategies adopted by suppliers to meet this change.
  • Environmental factors shaping the industry
  • Future outlook for raw material and concentrates producers
