The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) Committee on Equipment Statistics (CES) will be having its 2018 Annual CES Meeting, Monday, October 29, 2018 at the Westin O'Hare, Chicago, Illinois.

All CES participants are strongly encouraged to attend this meeting, as this is working meeting and aims to continually improve the CES program for the participants’ needs.

CES tracks and reports new orders and shipments of plastics machinery on a monthly and quarterly basis. Based on data submitted by suppliers of injection molding machines, extruders, blow molding machines, auxiliary equipment and hot runners, participants can benchmark their operations with current market information on equipment orders and shipments for all major machinery sectors. These statistical reports give CES participants member-exclusive information that depicts a substantial percentage of the entire North American plastics machinery market, and serve as an important economic bellwether for the entire plastics industry. The CES program provides superior market information by using actual data submitted by participating companies. All data is thoroughly reviewed prior to publication.
