WASHINGTON (April 18, 2023) – The American Chemistry Council (ACC) has just released the 2023 edition of its statistical reference book on plastic resins, Resin Review. This annual publication presents industry data compiled from members of ACC’s Plastics Industry Producers’ Statistics Group and other sources and represents an authoritative resource to help analyze and understand the U.S. plastic resins industry.

The 2023 edition contains detailed tables on North American resin production, sales, industry capacities and utilization rates from 2012-2022. Sales data for major thermoplastic resins are segmented into end-use markets from 2018-2022, and historical data on U.S. plastics production, sales and captive use illustrate key trends from 1973 to 2022.

The publication also explains the basic chemistry and manufacturing processes for plastics, includes material flow and monomer derivatives diagrams, and provides a glossary of basic plastics terms.
