Quarterly Report Q1/2022

Plastics Europe is happy to share with you its “European Plastics Manufacturers Quarterly Report” for the first quarter of 2022.

This edition shows that the production of plastics decreased in the first quarter 2022 in the EU27. The high production level at the end of the year 2021 could not be maintained. The war in Ukraine aggravated supply bottlenecks and high energy and raw material prices in Europe.  

The report provides a concise and well-structured overview of the developments in the European Union (EU27) on the following points, using official figures:

  • GDP and production of the manufacturing industry
  • Plastics production and producer prices
  • Foreign trade of plastics in primary forms
