The current situation of Algeria's plastics industry:
Algeria has a population of 38.7 million, stable economic growth, and large reserves of oil and natural gas. The increasing consumption power of Algerians has also promoted the rapid development of the plastics and rubber industries. Algeria is the fourth largest economy in Africa, after Egypt, South Africa and Nigeria.
