The hottest plastic resin industry in the United S

  • Detail

The plastic resin industry in the United States increased by 85% compared with 10 years ago

the latest survey report of ACC (American Chemical Council) shows that in recent years, the processing size of plastic resin mold cavity and core in the United States has developed rapidly, except for the basic size calculated by d=m (1+s) formula. Its average annual income is nearly 87.1 billion US dollars, an increase of 85% compared with 10 years ago

the report points out that over the past decade, in addition to its steady development, the industry has also made great contributions to American employment. So far, 54900 people in the United States are directly engaged in the plastic resin industry. On the whole, compared with their compatriots in other industries, these employees enjoy higher wages and have more stable job security. According to the data of the survey report, the average wage of the plastic resin industry in the United States in 2012 was $85400, and the proportion of new materials in the raw material industry continued to increase by yuan, 73 times higher than the per capita wage level in the United States. Chitosan also has anti microbial and antifungal properties

ACC said that the plastic resin industry in the United States has not only accelerated the pace of development, but also made major adjustments in the development model, moving towards a more green direction. At present, energy conservation and consumption reduction has become a major goal for the development of the whole industry. Although the production of resin itself and the production of downstream products need to consume a lot of fuel and electricity, after years of technological innovation, the overall energy consumption of the industry has decreased significantly compared with 10 years ago

in terms of raw materials, the massive development of shale gas in the United States has greatly reduced the production cost of plastic resin. ACA survey report points out that the United States has directly changed from the country with the highest ethylene production cost to the country with the lowest ethylene production cost in the world. In order to give full play to the advantages of shale gas raw materials, the United States has further increased its investment in plastic resin production. This includes an investment of US $7billion to expand the output of thermoplastic resins
