By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Europe Thermoplastics Market – Segmented by Type, Industry and Geography – Trends and Forecasts (2015-2020)” report to their offering.

Germany currently dominates the European market for thermoplastics, followed by the UK.

Europe ranks second in the global plastics materials production. Two thirds of plastics demand in Europe is concentrated in five countries, namely Germany, Italy, France, U.K., and Spain.

The rapid increase in downstream processing capacity additions, primarily geared towards export markets, will be the main driver of polyethylene demand in the future. The study indicates that innovations in packaging, rising living standards and population, growing demand in end user markets, and emerging economies are anticipated to boost the industry.

The industry is expected to face certain challenges such as regulatory standards to reduce CO2 emissions, fluctuation of crude oil prices, and product commoditization.
