Recycled Plastics Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 – 2027
Report ID: GMI3562
The Recycled Plastics Market demand is expected to grow in the upcoming years due to their increasing usage in various end-use applications. Recycled plastics are recovered form of plastics or scraps coming out of municipal, industrial, commercial and consumer wastes. The key growth driving factor for the recycled plastics industry is rising impacts of plastic disposal on environment. Plastic products are non-biodegradable and are often disposed of directly to the landfills. But the problems associated with its method of disposal are ecologically harmful in the long term as it takes a significantly long time for decomposition. Disposal in the water bodies also pose serious threats to the marine ecology. Thus, rising concerns over the plastic disposal will boost the product demand in the upcoming years.
Another key growth enabling factor is rising awareness regarding energy savings. Recycled plastics manufacturing can reduce the energy consumption by 80% to 90% than virgin plastics. It also saves consumption of a large amount of petroleum products and emission of carbon dioxide gases. Many multinational companies have taken an initiative to use the product instead of virgin plastic products For example, Nestle has planned to achieve 100% fully recyclable packaging by 2025. Similarly, Amcor has committed to increase the use of recycled plastics in its manufacturing process and to make all of its packaging to be reusable or recyclable by 2025. Thus, the increasing awareness for saving the energy along with rising participation of individual will drive the product demand in the upcoming years.
Though recycled plastics offers a range of advantages over virgin plastic, but the challenges associated with collection & sorting are likely to hamper the market demand in the upcoming years. Further, low awareness of plastic recycling in the developing countries will further hamper the market demand in the forecast time period.
Recycled plastics market has been segmented based on the source, type, end-user industry and region. Based on the source, the industry has been categorized bulky rigids, fiber, foam, bottles. Among these, bottles are expected to grow significantly in the upcoming years.
On the basis of type, recycled plastics are categorized into polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polystyrene (PS), and others. Other recycled plastics includes polycarbonate (PC), polyamide (PA), etc.
On the basis of end-user industry, the market has been segmented into automotive, packaging, textile, personal care, household and others. Other end-user segment consists of agriculture, paints & coatings, etc. Packaging industry will have a significant growth in the recycled plastics market in the upcoming years. Rising food & beverages demand across the world will drive the need for packaging products, which will further increase the product demand in the upcoming years. Automotive industry is also expected to see a considerable growth in the recycled plastics market. The automotive manufacturers use plastic materials for producing variety of structural components and body parts. Increasing demand for lightweight vehicles will further drive the product demand in automotive industry in the forecast time period.
