Compared with metal, stone and wood, plastic bottle has the advantages of low cost and strong plasticity. It is widely used in the national economy. Plastic industry plays an extremely important role in the world today. Over the years, the production of plastic bottle has developed rapidly all over the world.
According to the analysis report on the production and marketing demand and investment forecast of China's plastic bottle industry in 2011-2015 released by the prospective industry research institute, China's plastic bottle production has always been in the forefront in the world, among which the production of various plastic bottles has been in the first place in the world, and China has become the world's largest plastic bottle production country. From 2001 to 2010, the annual growth rate of China's plastic bottle production remained above 15%, and the total production of China's plastic bottle reached 58.3 million tons in 2010.
Plastic bottles are widely used, and the huge downstream industry provides strong support for the development of China's plastic bottle industry. With the promulgation of the detailed rules for the plan of revitalizing the petrochemical industry, China's plastic bottle industry has ushered in new opportunities for development. China's plastic bottle market demand mainly focuses on agricultural plastic bottles, packaging plastic bottles, construction plastic bottles, industrial transportation and engineering plastic bottles.
At present, China's per capita plastic consumption is still far behind the developed countries in the world. As an indicator to measure the development level of a country's plastic industry, the plastic steel ratio in China is only 30:70, which is lower than the world average of 50:50, and further lower than 70:30 in developed countries such as the United States and 63:37 in Germany. In the future, with the technological progress and consumption upgrading of modified plastics in China, China's plastic bottle needs are expected to maintain a growth rate of more than 10%.
