The Global Recycled Plastic market is driven by the growing acceptance of recycled plastics in the textile industry and the shift of the packaging industry from virgin plastics to recyclable materials. However, the market is also constantly being influenced by rapid development in technology, product innovation, and diversification in some countries.

With the increasing investments and emergence of new products, the Global Recycled Plastic market is changing rapidly. For instance, In January 2022, Plastipak Holdings completed a major investment and significantly expanded its PET recycling capacity at its manufacturing site in Luxembourg. The new plant converts washed RPET flakes originating from post-consumer bottles into food-grade recycled PET (rPET) pellets.

In July 2021, Co-op, a food retail business brand in the U.K., launched the most extensive in-store recycling scheme for plastic bags and product wrapping in Europe. The initiative ensured all the Co-op’s food packing is easily recyclable.

Furthermore, In June 2021, Indorama Ventures Sustainable Recycling (IVSR), a global chemicals producer acquired CarbonLite Holdings as part of the company’s commitment to increase PET recycling capacity.

The Global Recycled Plastics Market witnessed a dip in growth for the year 2020, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. There was a complete ban on imports and export that disrupted the supply chain and hampered the market globally. However, the market condition is expected to get better in 2022, thereby restoring growth over the forecast period. The market is primarily driven by the increasing usage of recycled plastics in textiles, buildings & construction, packaging, automotive, and other industries. Though the market is highly competitive with ~500 participants, country-niche players control the dominant share in the market and regional players also hold a significant share.
