North American Plastics Industry Study

Plante Moran

Data-backed insights for plastics processors

For 26 years, Plante Moran has conducted the North American Plastics Industry Study (NAPIS), the industry’s most comprehensive benchmarking study. Plastics processors are up against stiff competition and an ever-evolving manufacturing world. More than ever, processors need to embrace Industry 4.0 and operational changes to improve existing processes, increase labor productivity, and reduce manufacturing costs to stay ahead.

This industry-leading study allows us to provide plastics processors with a data-driven understanding of where you stand — and where you need to go to maintain a competitive advantage in the industry. Data points and analysis span key business functions, including strategy, operations, and finance. The metrics help highlight the health of your facility, with comparative data from more than 200 competing facilities. Download a copy of the 2021 Summary Report here.
