Sales in the Brazilian composites industry fell 15% in 1Q15
According to Gilmar Lima, president of ALMACO, in addition to the current economic scenario faced in Brazil, the main factors responsible for such scenario are the cuts and delays in government funding transfers to social programs. "The uncertainties and lack of confidence further aggravates the crisis. On the other hand, there is a conformity in the composites industry, illustrated by the lack of reaction and creativity," he said.
For the second quarter, however, Maxiquim’s survey indicates 8.1% sales increase, totaling US$ 260 million - in volume of processed material, jumping 7.4%, reaching 47,000 tons.
