Key Market Insights:

“Rising adoption of recycled plastic products worldwide will boost the market growth”

The global plastic recycling market is growing substantially, projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during the projected period from 2019 to 2027, starting from US$ 41.73 Bn in 2018. The global plastic recycling market volume is rising significantly, anticipated to expand with a CAGR of 8.9% during the estimated period from 2019 to 2027, starting from 29,438 kilotons in 2018.

The global plastic recycling market is majorly driven by the growing adoption of recycled plastic products worldwide. Growing penetration of recycled plastics in numerous industries (includes food & beverages, packaging, personal care and others) is expected to further drive the market growth throughout the forecast period. The demand for plastic recycling is anticipated to surge at a rapid pace in years to come due to abysmal statistics about the plastic waste generation in the atmosphere. The plastic production has reached over 350 Bn metric tons in 2018 from 1.5 Mn metric tons in 1950.   

Rising government initiatives worldwide for plastic recycling is another major factor responsible for market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in some states of the U.S. such as California, Delaware, Connecticut, and others ‘Bottle Bill or Container Deposit Law’ has passed in which states refund 5 or 10 cents per bottle to encourage recycling and reusing of beverage plastic containers. Growing hygiene concerns and initiatives by major companies for the use of recycled plastics are some other factors expected to drive the market in years to come. For instance, in 2015, Adidas partners with Parley an environmental organization to convert marine trash to sportswear. Adidas sold around 5 Mn pairs of shoes in 2018 and it is expected that the number will reach around 20 Mn by 2021.

Regional Analysis:

“Rising import of plastic waste is expected to enhance the Asia Pacific growth”

In 2018, Asia Pacific has a major share in terms of both volume and value. The region contributed to around 48% market share in value and nearly 55% market share in volume. The region has the highest share owing to growing plastic waste imports in the South Asian economies such as India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and others. Growing small scale recycling plants along with the growth of the packaging industry in Asia Pacific are some other factors anticipated to enhance the market growth during the forecast period. Growing awareness accompanied by rising government initiatives for plastic recycling is some other factor expected to drive regional growth in years to come. For instance, in 2018, the Indian government installed ‘Reverse Vending Machines’ at different places to discard plastic bottles.

“Rising adoption of plastic recycling will spur the market in Europe”

Europe is anticipated to grow with the highest CAGR in terms of volume owing to the enhancement of domestic recycling facilities, increased use of recycled plastic across the packaging industry and growing environmental stability targets. For instance, in 2017, the European Union (EU) tightened recycling targets to 55% of plastic packaging waste by 2030 compared with 41% in 2016 for its member states.
