About the Plastic Industry

The plastic industry was relatively small about fifty years ago. However, the past couple of decades have brought in an exquisite popularity. Practically, plastic is used everywhere today. It has grown along with the petrochemical industry, especially since most plastics are made of petroleum based products. From this point of view, this field is very likely to maintain its popularity for many more years. It is one of the fastest growing industries as well.
 
A plastic company is mostly responsible for manufacturing polymer based materials, not to mention about distributing these products around. They are then resold all across the world. A few companies also offer plastic related services. They serve a wide variety of fields, including electronics, construction, transportation and packaging. While some job opportunities do not require any postsecondary education in this field, a degree will most likely ensure a well paid career.
 
There are several front runners in the plastic industry across the United States of America and Dow Chemical Company is the most important one. In this field, the competition is international and comes from all directions.
