Polymer Distribution Europe 2024
To be published Summer 2024
Despite challenging periods of resin price volatility and times of resin shortages over the last ten years, distributors have managed to enhance profitability and margins by offering much-needed reliable supplies of material, technical support, and new services to customers. Innovative strategies and inventive customer dialogue have been also key elements in the strategy of successful companies in the industry. In an industry notorious for its slim margins and a low growth economy, the successful distributor needs to be rigorous in understanding the cost-to-serve and the value gained from its customers to ensure its survival and growth.
We have been monitoring and analysing the trends in the European polymer distribution industry for over 20 years. The 2024 report will represent the ninth edition and it will build on earlier research to consider the newest trends and factors influencing the industry.
Over the previous eight editions, this study has been evolving into the most comprehensive analysis of polymer distribution currently available on the market and represents an essential guide for industry players as they optimise business activities and plan future investments.
