Primeval plastics and synthetic rubber are important input materials for many industries, especially plastics and automobile industry. China takes the lead in thermoplastic production, with an output of 92.1 tons in 2016. In 2016, global sales of polymer-based products reached 851 billion USD, up 6.2% compared to 2015. Global synthetic rubber production and consumption has been on the upward trend in recent years, much greater than those of natural rubber. Production of plastic materials and additives in 6M/2018 was estimated at 447 thousand tons, of which main products are Poly Acetal, polyethers and epoxy resins; polycarbonate, polyalkylether and other polyesters, primary forms, etc. Imports of synthetic rubber in 6M/2018 was estimated at USD 230.5 million, up 5% over the same period in 2016, while synthetic rubber exports reached USD 5.5 million.
