[Online Quarterly Update] Global Plastic Recycling market stood at 162.5 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 263.08 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 4.49% until 2030.
Global demand for recycle plastics market is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR as it finds application in packaging, automotive, building & construction, electrical and electronics industry, among others. Increasing usage of plastics due to their lightweight nature, durability, and other favorable properties led to high demand for plastics thereby adversely affecting the environment. Growing awareness about the benefits of energy-saving and the growing need to reduce the carbon footprint is likely to play a positive role to increase the demand for the global plastic recycling market. Recycled plastic can be processed into polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS), etc. Plastics can be recycled by using methods such as landfill, thermal, mechanical, and chemical methods.
Growing application of recycled plastics in packaging, electrical & electronics, textile, building& construction, automotive, and other industries in addition to the advantages of using recycled plastics aids in lower energy consumption.
Increasing government regulation and policies regarding the use of single-use plastics in various countries as well as the surge in investment to develop new technology resulting in higher energy efficiency is expected to foster the market demand.
The COVID-19 outbreak across the world which has been declared as a pandemic by World Health Organization has affected several countries adversely. Leading authorities around the globe imposed lockdown restrictions and released a set of precautionary measures to contain the spread of novel coronavirus. The rise in adoption for online shopping surged the demand for various packaging materials for products belonging to personal care, electronic devices, personal protection equipment, among others, thereby the demand for recycle plastics accelerated during the covid period.
North America followed closely by Asia-pacific is expected to be the largest generators and recyclers of plastic waste. These two regions hold almost 76 percent of the global plastic recycling market and are expected to maintain their dominance during the forecast period as well. The introduction of several regulations to promote the use of recycled plastic and the rise in demand for packed and packaged food are the contributing factors expected to strengthen the market growth.
