A tough year for U.S.-based materials firms is reviewed in this week's Material Insights video. Plastics News took a look at 15 publicly held materials firms and found many impacted by lower consumer demand and slower economic growth. An expansion at Italian TPU maker API SpA also is featured in this week's video. The video also includes news of Hexpol's acquisition of German TPE maker Horst Muller Kuntstoffe.
