Plastic is present around us in huge quantities and accounts for almost 90% of the global municipal waste. This waste gets accumulated on land that can be used for other purposes, and thus recycling plastic offers an effective solution for clearing these landfill spaces. Plastic recycling includes the reprocessing of post-consumer or post-industrial plastics instead of the virgin resin. Plastic is also recycled during the manufacture of plastic products such as polyethylene films and bags. A significant fraction of these plastics is further used in the manufacturing of several products such as footwear, bags, toys, fabrics, toothbrushes, etc. The Global Recycled Plastics Market reached a value of US$ 37 Billion in 2016.
Increasing prices of conventional plastics along with the growing concern for the environment represent the key factors driving the market. Recycling plastics reduces the amount of energy and natural resources needed to create virgin plastic. Therefore, shifting focus towards sustainability is boosting the demand for recycled plastics across the globe. Moreover, increasing local demand and lower labour costs has expanded the market in the emerging regions such as Asia Pacific, particularly in China, India, and the ASEAN countries. Owing to the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 51 Billion by 2022, exhibiting a CAGR of 6% during 2017-2022.
