Global Recyclable Plastics Market Growth, Trends and Segment Forecasts To 2027 - World Market Forecast to Reach US$65 Billion by 2027 -

6 March 2021

The "Recyclable Plastics Market Growth, Trends & Analysis, By Type, By Source, By Recycling processes, By End-Use Industry And Segment Forecasts To 2027" report has been added to's offering.

Increased concern about plastic pollution, enhancement of the recycling process, and increased demand for plastics are propelling the recyclable plastics market growth.

The Global Recyclable Plastics Market is forecast to reach USD 65.06 Billion by 2027. The awareness about the adverse impact of plastic pollution on environmental stability is on the rise. The rise in awareness about its harmful effect has been the result of experiencing real-life complications associated with plastic pollution and government initiatives in support of the same. Such increased awareness about plastic pollution has acted as a significant driver for the growth of the market. Additionally, a surge in research activities to enhance recycling technologies and the increase in social enterprises dealing with the issue of plastic pollution like UrbanR Recycle+ positively impact the growth of the sector.

There has been a rise in demand for plastic in various regions, China being one of the leading nations. However, in these regions, the need for plastics is comparatively higher than the plastic raw materials required to accommodate the demand from these countries. Such disparity between increased demand and a low supply of plastic raw materials bolsters the growth of the sector. The progress of this sector is reflected in the fact that till 2015, only 0.5 Billion tons, which is only 6% of the total plastic produced, was recycled. However, within only three years, i.e., by 2018, 1.3 Billion tons of plastic were recycled.

Regionally, Asia Pacific can be seen leading the market. In this region, continuous development in the manufacturing sector, the increased availability of labor, and the shortage of plastic raw materials have contributed to its market dominance.

Further key findings from the report suggest

  • The recyclable plastics market held a market share of USD 42.08 Billion in the year 2019, projected to grow at a rate of 5.5% during the forecast period.
  • Based on Type, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) segment generated the highest revenue of about USD 14.30 Billion in 2019, with an estimated CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period.
