International Yearbook 2022 is Launched During the 2nd World Plastic Connection Summit
The second edition of the yearbook published by the Think Plastic Brazil portfolio will have an online format, featuring even more information on companies in the Brazilian plastics industry
Think Plastic Brazil (portfolio of solutions that support the converted plastic products sector in the process of internationalization for target markets), created by INP (Brazilian Plastics Institute) in partnership with ApexBrasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency), presented this Tuesday (11/8) the International Yearbook 2022. The launch was part of the agenda of the 2 nd World Plastic Connection Summit, which took place in a hybrid format (face-to-face and online) on November 7-10 at Blue Tree Premium Alphaville.
In its second edition, the yearbook was published in three languages (Portuguese, English, and Spanish), featuring information about the Brazilian converted plastics sector and the internationalization process, in addition to the product portfolios of the member companies of the sectoral project.
Currently, 170 companies participate in the Think Plastic Brazil project, a 14% increase compared to 2021. Of this total, 125 already make exports, a figure 19% higher than in the previous year.
Sector exports as of September 2022 increased by 66.2% compared to 2021, generating $340.8 million in revenue. A total of 120,000 metric tons were exported, an 11.2% increase compared to last year.
Another index that showed growth was that of export destinations, which in 2022 reached 90, a figure 11.1% higher than in the previous period. “We are reaching countries where we did not reach before,” commented Carlos Moreira, Strategy and Project Planning Manager at Think Plastic Brazil.
Nevertheless, the main markets for Brazilian converted plastics are still located in the Americas. The main consumer is Argentina (25.08%), followed by the United States (12.06%). Chile (12.05%), Paraguay (6.58%), and Uruguay (6.18%) complete the top 5.
The International Yearbook 2022 has a digital format and features printed copies with restricted circulation. The proposal of the Think Plastic Brazil project is to ensure that the information contained in the yearbook can be quickly updated by the companies themselves. “One advantage of the Yearbook is that it is updated live – each month, we will be adding new information, advertisements, and news online,” explained Carlos Moreira.
The World Plastic Connection Summit is one of the main actions of the sectoral project for the verticals supported by the Think Plastic Brazil program: Agribusiness, Toys and Childcare, Construction, Packaging, Supplies (including Masterbatch, the material responsible for coloring converted plastic products), and Housewares. The event featured the following sponsorships and support: Highlight Plastic – Valgroup; Master Plastic – Braskem; Special Plastic Masterbatch – Colorfix; and the supporters: Institutional – Plástico em Revista and Plástico Virtual, in addition to support by Abiquim and Abiplast.
