Plastic had always acted as a base to create products of all shapes and sizes. Today, the plastic wares range from large piping to carry bags, and can be seen in almost every household across the globe. However, the very volatile nature of the degradability of plastic has posed a significant threat to the environment. As a result, manufacturers are seeking newer and safer techniques for producing plastic while also adhering to the global environmental safety norms.
In this regard, trends like biodegradable plastics developed using vegetable and plant wastes or extracts are gaining popularity and traction worldwide. Alongside, the emergence of 3D printing has largely improved several aspects of plastic manufacturing and will continue to remain a catalyst for reiterating the processes of developing plastic parts. On the other hand, by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), businesses hope to simplify manufacturing and maintenance cycles of plastic products faster.
At this juncture, there is a wide variety of solutions and service providers entering the industry with a set of advanced and integrated plastic tech solutions and services offerings. To help companies navigate through the best-of-breed plastic tech solution and service providers, Manufacturing Technology Insights has compiled this edition.
