Little Falls, new Jersey--A recently published study from Kline & Company examines the manufacturing economics of US-based synthetic latex polymer producers (SLPs), which, the report says, has shown steady, moderate growth despite increases in production costs.
In a statement,m the pblishers say, "SYNTHETIC LATEX POLYMERS MANUFACTURING ANALYSIS, Volume III: United States 2005 indicates that manufacturing costs for SLPs have increased by approximately 20% since 1999. In response, latex polymer manufacturers have tried to insulate themselves, particularly from rising monomer costs. These raw materials account for at least 67% of the total manufacturing cost for SLPs and can range as high as 82%, as with all-acrylic latexes."
The latest report is part of a series covering different geographic regions and aspects of manufacturing and markets. This volume costs $25,000. The company does not say how many pages the report contains.
