The objective of this study is to provide a comprehensive analysis for those who are interested and/or involved in the plastic thermoformed businesses that include resin producers, plastic sheet producers, thermoformers and those in the major industries using these products. There has, over the last decade, been something of a surge in the use of thermoformed plastic products due to improved technologies, and as a result, thermoformed plastics are competing favorably with injection molding in several key applications.

In addition, there have been very few previous studies that have quantitatively segmented the thermoformed portion of the plastic sheet business, since plastic sheet is the precursor to plastic thermoformed products and is also used extensively without being heated and stretched to plastic thermoformed products. Thermoformed products have also been made from films as well. market research report
