Plastics and Packaging

BACKGROUND

Although Québec’s plastics industry is dependent on the construction, transportation equipment (including automobiles) and consumer goods industries, it continues to offer good potential in the long term. Going forward, its priorities will have to be innovation (in terms of products and business plans), investments in cutting-edge equipment, and exporting to emerging markets.

INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

In order to ensure its long-term growth and to maintain its advantageous market position, the plastics industry will have to address the following challenges:

  • Variations in the exchange rate;
  • Sharp fluctuations in the price of oil;
  • Growing Asian imports;
  • Environmental pressures!
