Broken bottle: Sustainability and dietary concerns are driving more people to consumer fewer soft drinks

The Plastic Bottle Manufacturing industry converts polyethylene terephthalate (PET), high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and other plastic resin pellets into bottles for use by a variety of downstream markets. The industry's largest customer is beverage and food manufacturers. Industry performance is heavily influenced by consumer demand for these goods. In addition, input costs are generally passed along to buyers through product pricing. This means changes in the price of volatile hydrocarbons commodities can influence industry performance as well. Falling input costs and per capita soft drink consumption have contributed to stagnating industry revenue over the five years to more.

  • Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

    The province with the largest share of industry establishments is Ontario, which contains 42.9% of the industry’s operating facilities, which represents a slight decrease in industry operations within the province. Still, Ontario has the largest share of the population in Canada and is, therefore, closer to downstream clients and their respective markets. It is also close to the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River, which enable easy access to both US manufacturing industries on the other side of the border and to trade routes via these large waterways. For these reasons, locating in Ontario is attractive to most businesses. In ...purchase to read more.
