Statistical analysis shows that in the past, plastics processing industry in relatively weak provinces such as Hunan, Hainan, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia and so on, output of plastics products increased by more than 50% in 2012, but unbalanced pattern of regional distribution has not changed much, with high energy consumption, low processing technology content and labor-intensive products. It gradually flows to less developed areas.
