Plastic Products Miscellaneous Manufacturing in Canada Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated

Plastic Products Miscellaneous Manufacturing in Canada Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated












New York, NY (PRWEB) December 20, 2013

Plastic products have a wide range of uses and their versatility has helped the Plastic Products Miscellaneous Manufacturing industry withstand the recession with relative strength in comparison to other manufacturing industries. In the five years to 2013, IBISWorld expects that industry revenue will decline at an annualized rate of 1.8% to $ 11.5 billion. A 13.3% drop in revenue in 2009 has largely influenced this rate, but since then the industry has been stabilizing as downstream demand has improved gradually from the recession’s shocks. According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst James Crompton, “In 2013, revenue is expected to increase 0.2%.”

The industry relies heavily on several key industries to purchase its products. For example, automotive manufacturers, which account for 23.7% of revenue, use plastic in vehicle interiors and in some engine components. Furthermore, construction industries account for 26.0% of industry revenue; these markets were negatively impacted by the recession. As economic conditions improve, industry operators are expected to experience increasing profitability. However, improving profitability is not expected to attract additional operators to the industry. In the five years to 2013, IBISWorld estimates the number of industry enterprises has declined at an annualized rate of 4.1%; this number is expected to continue declining in the five years to 2018. However, improving economic conditions are expected to encourage industry revenue growth in the next five years.

Trade continues to play an important role in the industry, with imports and exports accounting for 37.0% and 34.5% of industry revenue, respectively. “Increasing competition from imports is expected to reduce the attractiveness of entering the industry,” says Crompton. In the five years to 2013, imports are expected to increase at an annualized rate of 2.1%. Conversely, exports are expected to decline at an annualized rate of 2.4% in the period. As import competition remains steady, the industry is expected to consolidate. Moving forward, IBISWorld anticipates that operators will focus on specific markets to remain competitive. The wide variety of products included in this industry enables smaller operators to compete effectively by focusing on a particular market, a trend that is expected to continue in the five years to 2018.

The Plastic Products Miscellaneous Manufacturing industry consists of a large number of small, regional companies. As a result, the concentration is low. The wide variety of products manufactured in this industry and the diverse buying markets make it difficult for individual companies to grab a large portion of the market share.

Marketing Firm for Plastic Surgeons Will Connect Surgeons to Their Local Community in New Way, According to CEO Craig Stephens.

Marketing Firm for Plastic Surgeons Will Connect Surgeons to Their Local Community in New Way, According to CEO Craig Stephens.

President to Marketing Specialist for Plastic Surgeons


Key Largo, FL (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

Marketing Specialists for Plastic Surgeons, a Florida-based marketing group, has said it will increase local interest in surgeons through a unique, alternative means of marketing — namely a contest. Craig Stephens, founder and CEO of Marketing Specialists for Plastic Surgeons, is hoping to give surgeons more options regarding how they market their practices.

“Using a contest solely for plastic surgeons has not been done before,” said Stephens. “Something as simple as a competition among potential patients will allow surgeons to better connect with their local markets. It allows the doctor to collect information which can be repurposed to promote a surgeon’s character and humanity.”

Stephens says that the tactics employed are known as Blue Ocean strategies — a character building approach that can drastically improve practice relevance in the community within just a few months. The results, Stephens adds, are far superior to anything that a generic marketing can provide.

“The data collected will be rolled-over to enhance the doctor’s credibility. The reason why these strategies work is because people respond more to expertise than price.” said Stephens. “Expertise in a certain procedure is always supported by patient testimonials from respected sources, and these carry more weight than price-driven ‘me too’ special offers. When someone is considering a cosmetic procedure, most understand that a bargain may not be such a good idea if the quality isn’t there. Patients are much happier dealing with the best than the cheapest when it comes to these kinds of services.”

“By improving community involvement and showing that a doctor cares, the newly-branded “expert” can radically improve the practice’s productivity, not just in the quantity of patients, but the quality,” added Stephens. “Most clients use reviews and testimonials today to aide in selection of products and services.”

The novel part of the local campaign that Stephens is undertaking is the contest, which offers a free surgery procedure to the person who tells the most engaging and compassionate story about why they want or need the procedure performed. The contest is open to all, and ends when 500 unique applications have been received. According to Stephens, surgeons will use this information as a way to gather insight into the thoughts of “non-customers,”which is the name given to people that want a procedure but haven’t had it performed due to cost or other worries.

Florida-based Marketing Specialists for Plastic Surgeons is a company directly involved in developing marketing techniques for both the cosmetic and plastic surgery industries. The company is owned and operated by Craig Stephens.
