The Manufacturers Association of Plastics Processors (MAPP) Wage and Salary Report, now in its 14th year, contains comprehensive analyses on nearly 60 different job classifications from plastics processing facilities across the US. It has evolved each year to encompass new job titles, as well as important industry and business trends within the plastics sector.
This report remains one of the very few compensation reports dedicated exclusively to the plastics manufacturing industry. The data in the report represent nearly 26,000 full-time and part-time employees across 27 states. This year’s report includes eight additional job titles based on feedback from previous years, as well as a breakdown by US region.
Slightly more than half (56 percent) of the job descriptions analyzed in this year’s report show wage changes above the current US inflation rate of 0.82 percent, when compared to the 2015 Wage and Salary Report. Overall, plastics manufacturing positions experienced an average of a two percent increase in wage/salary. Exactly 75 percent of plastics job titles experienced either stagnant salaries or some amount of growth in compensation. Roughly 13 percent of positions analyzed in this year’s report revealed a greater than five percent growth in wage/salary.
