The Algerian plastics industry… … is one of the fastest growing and most important sectors in Algeria. The sector’s annual growth rate amounts to 4 to 5% in these past few years. Its growth is driven manifold: by huge governmental projects and infrastructural investments (hydraulics, building and construction, energy, agriculture, gas tubes for Sonelgaz, etc.), as well as by industrial sub-contracting and the demand for packaging materials. The Algerian plastics industry consists of some 2 200 enterprises, among them subsidiaries of heavyweights such as Sonatrach, Enip, Iap, Enpc, but mostly of small and medium sized private enterprises. Around 40% of them are active in injection, 20 % in extrusion, the rest in the fast-growing packaging and plasticulture sectors. The workforce stands at around 20,000. With an annual consumption of 1 million tons, half of which being imported from Asia and Europe, the Algerian plastics market has an enormous potential. The per capita consumption is between 8 to 10 kg.
