Recycled Plastics Market to Record Stellar CAGR 4.5% from Forecast 2017 to 2025
Apr 29, 2020 Xherald --

Recycling of plastic is broadly defined as collecting waste plastic scraps that are recyclable, processing it with various technologies, and finally treating it with chemicals and additives to produce a newer plastic. The improved quality of recycled plastic products over their virgin counterparts, the push from different companies, and strict governmental regulations are the main drivers of the recycled plastic market. Persistence Market Research in its upcoming report titled '



The polyethylene terephthalate and high density polyethylene resin types had a market share approaching 2/3



The packaging industry is anticipated to hold the maximum share in the recycled plastic market by application type in terms of both value and volume. There is heavy demand for recycled plastic in the packaging industry because most waste scrap is generated by the packaging sector and then recycled to manufacture PET containers, bottles, carpet fibers, and clothes. The packaging industry is predicted to record a CAGR of 4.8% throughout the forecast period. Companies such as Nestle and Coca Cola have begun to use recycled plastic bottles for packing beverages and they have pledged to use more recycled plastic content in their beverage bottles instead of virgin plastic.



Plastic bottles are on track to witness a CAGR of 4.8% from 2017 to 2025 and should exceed 17,000 KT by the end of the eight-year study, making it imperative for key stakeholders in the recycled plastic market to target.


APEJ is estimated to fuel the volume gains in the recycled plastic market over the forecast period with a total incremental opportunity of just under US$ 3.3 billion being attributed to this populous continent. The consumption of recycled plastic products is concentrated in APEJ particularly in the construction and packaging sectors. In China, the raw material availability is very less leading to increased consumption of recycled plastic.
