The industrial growth in plastic sector in Bangladesh began at around the year 1980. Prior to that plastic sector industry was on such a small that it is not wroth mentioning. A gradual growth in the plastic industry was noticeable from the year 1980 to the year 1990. A large number of injection grade and film grade plastic industries were set up during this period and this sector started to play a significant role in the national economy. Since then the plastic industries started to move faster than the other sectors.
The processing technology and the equipment initially came from India, followed by Thailand, Korea, Japan, China, Singapore and some European countries.
Today, we have around 3000 small, medium and large size plastic goods manufacturing units with around 1 million workforce directly or indirectly employed in this sector.
We are developing nation and are yet to achieve world-class standard in many items of plastic products. We lack in modern technology, our capital resources are limited compared to many developed countries. But we are yet to attain the world standard knowledge on the plastic sector and also participate in various kinds of international plastic fair.
