Drumheads have been manufactured from plastic since 1956, mostly polyester. Real Skins are used for percussion instruments like bongos, congas and such. The main advantage of plastic is better durability, they are cheaper and are not prone to changes in humidity. The weatherking brand comes to mind.

We will have a closer look at the plastic heads used for the modern drum set here.
