    I couldn’t find any exact figures for profits in the plastics industry, but it may help you to know that the plastics industry has grown 9% per year since 1950 and that international plastics production has grown by more than 500% in the past 30 years. According to information from 2006, the world consumes 100 million metric tons (220.5 billion tons) of plastic. There are anywhere from 100 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags in existence. So many bags exist because they only cost about one cent to produce.
