The Plastics News Global Group is a collection of plastics-related publications operated by Plastics News in Akron, Ohio.

Crain Communications Inc., PN’s parent company, acquired Emap's polymer-related assets in July 2007 to form the group. Those properties, headquartered in Croydon, England, include Plastics & Rubber Weekly and the monthly European Plastics News. The 11,800-circulation PRW has been serving the U.K. plastics industry since 1964. European Plastics News launched in 1974, and is the only pan-European magazine serving the entire plastics manufacturing sector, including the growing industry in central and Eastern Europe. It circulates to 13,800 subscribers in 20 countries.

Via its 2007 deal with Emap, Plastics News also inherited a publishing licensing agreement with the management of the Singapore-based trade magazine Asian Plastics News, which has since expired.
