INTRODUCTION

This chapter provides a general introduction for this report, describing the study goals and objectives, reasons for doing the study, intended audience, scope, methodology, information sources and analyst credentials of this report.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The goal of this study is to help readers form a comprehensive understanding of the recent advances and trends in manufacturing, applications, technologies and global and regional markets for non-polyolefin commodity plastic resins. For this goal, this report will provide in-depth analysis for the global and regional non-polyolefin commodity resin markets.

Four objectives in this report will be met. Major types of non-polyolefin commodity resins and the future demand thereof will be described. Main technologies of non-polyolefin commodity resins manufacturing will be discussed. Commercial applications in which non-polyolefin commodity resins are used will be discussed. Present consumption and future demand for non-polyolefin commodity resins will be evaluated for global markets by six world regions: China, Asia, North America, Europe, South America, and the rest of the world (ROW). In this report, China refers to Mainland China and does not include Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau; Asia does not include China and Emerging Markets are mainly Africa and Oceania (Australia, New Zealand, and the Independent State of Papua New Guinea).

Trends in technology will be analyzed. The impact of governmental regulations and international agreements will be ascertained. Patents involving polyolefins will be discussed. The structural dynamics of the non-polyolefin commodity resin industry will be outlined, along with profiles of key manufacturers in the United States, China, Japan, Korea, India, Brazil, France, Germany, Taiwan and other countries or regions.

This report will review global markets for non-polyolefin commodity resins and will forecast trends and sales in these markets through 2016. Important manufacturers, technologies and factors influencing demand will be discussed.

The non-polyolefin commodity resin market is closely related to the production and supplies of the raw materials such as ethylene, phenol and methyl methacrylate (MMA); therefore, raw material production and supplies will be briefly described.

BCC's goal in conducting this study was to determine the current status of the non-polyolefin commodity resin industry and to assess its growth potential over the five-year period from 2011 to 2016. A primary objective is to present a comprehensive analysis of the current non-polyolefin commodity resin market and project its future direction.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

There are three main reasons for doing this study:

Resins manufacturers need to understand the trends of the market and technologies in order to plan their investment, production and R&D for the next five years or a longer period.

Raw materials suppliers and manufacturers need to understand the non-polyolefin commodity resin market for planning their production and R&D for the next five years.

Plastic manufacturers need to understand the trends of technologies and markets of non-polyolefin commodity resins.

SCOPE OF REPORT

The report forecasts the size of the market in current U.S. dollars for non-polyolefin commodity resins in value terms for each material and/or in volume terms from 2011 through 2016.

In this report, non-polyolefin commodity resins include PVC (polyvinyl chloride), PS (polystyrene), ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), PMMA (poly-methyl methacrylate), EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer), PF (phenol-formaldehyde), and UF (urea-formaldehyde). The sector of ABS could cover the technologies and production of SAN (styrene acrylonitrile), also known as AS (acrylonitrile styrene). Forecasts are classified on the basis of product type, technology type, application and geographical region.

The report also describes the raw materials supplies and important players in the non-polyolefin commodity resin industry.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

The intended audience of this report includes non-polyolefin commodity resins (PVC, PS, ABS, PMMA, PF, UF, and EVA) manufacturers and suppliers. Oil companies, chemical producers, plastic manufacturers and resin consumers in various industries may also have an interest in this report.

METHODOLOGY

Estimates of current market demand are made for 2010 and are projected over the next five years. Projections are made in terms of constant U.S. dollars (2010). Growth is presented in terms of a compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Prices are measured at the manufacturer level.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

If you don’t believe in the future possibilities, then I am not sure what to do to convince you other than discuss the very real changes that will roll out with the consumer producti...
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
