Plastic is the huge industry that includes many players. Here, we will take a close look on who they are or what services and products that they offer. When asked for describing plastic industry, many people generally tend to focus on plastic products supplier. Let us begin with the manufacturers and we will radiate to know who work with the manufacturers before the product is produced or delivered to consumers.
There are two methods to describe what the manufacturer does – by process (plastics making was they use), and by industry they are serving (automotive, packaging, and more.). Final product made determines type of the processes used. It isn’t necessary that the manufacturer get equipped with known processes. Most of the manufacturers are highly specialized in just some methods. The bigger plants might have three or four but it is hardly possible to have each process in one roof as selection of the process is totally dependent on final product or industry that the manufacturer is supplying. For example, company that supplies electronic industry might have the injection molding process for making TV casing or other components. The blow molding processes, which are used for bottles making are of not much use.
Plastics can be used extensively by various industries. The industries includes: pharmaceutical and medical; packaging; electrical and electronic; toys; automotive; building or construction; agriculture; home products; and more. Whereas most of the manufacturers sell the plastic parts or products to many others industries, and some trade themselves.
