PLASTICS Industry Association Releases Analysis: Global Economic Outlook Revision Impact on Plastics Trade

The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) has released an official analysis on the impact of the International Monetary Fund’s 2023 economic growth revision on the global plastics trade, authored by PLASTICS Chief Economist, Dr. Perc Pineda.

Dr. Pineda writes, “According to the IMF’s growth revisions, the global economy is anticipated to remain relatively stable from 2023 to 2024 but indicating a sideways movement. This projection has implications for the global plastics trade as well. While the industry can still expect growth opportunities in 2023, the subdued economic outlook for 2024 might pose some trade-related concerns.”
