Andrew K. Petryk, Managing Director and Head of Diversified Industrials Practice, was quoted in Plastics News regarding the strong plastics M&A activity in the first half of 2018.
“There will be a more critical eye on products floating in the ocean and the effect that those images have,” added Petryk at BGL. “The question becomes what’s an alternative product? We might see more biodegradables.”
BGL’s Petryk said that activity should continue, but market watchers need to keep an eye on “so much on the world stage,” including “very delicate situations” in North and South Korea, China and Russia and with tariffs.
