ABSTRACT
This article reports on the 2005 "North American Plastics Industry Study," released in October 2006. It revealed that North American injection molders remain a substantial market. The study took data from 2003 or 2004 for 162 molding firms. No company's data was used for both years, so a rolling average of the market could be created. The study also compiled government data showing that from 2003-04, North America had more than 7,000 injection molding firms with average annual sales of between $10 million and $12 million.
