1229 Days ago

NEW YORK, Sept. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global plastic recycling market was valued at USD 36.7 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 57.1 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period. The growth can be primarily attributed to the increasing awareness regarding the environmental impact of plastics and numerous government regulations to encourage the use of recycled plastics. Also, there has been a considerable increase in the use of recycled plastic across various end use industries which  is expected to fuel the market demand.

Furthermore, high-end research and development has fostered significant progression in the superior recycling technologies over time. Chemical recycling mechanisms have been developed that allow compatibility of mixed plastic wastes to eliminate the need of sorting. These also require lower amount of energy and extends recycling technology to conventionally non recyclable technologies. Moreover, novel materials have gradually entered the market that can be easily recycled in the future.

PET segment is expected to account for the major share of the market owing to its wide use in plastic bottles

On account of growing use of PET for making bottles for use in personal care products, storage containers, juice cans and more, has led to significant growth in the segment. The PET segment held the maximum share of the global market in 2017 and the trend is likely to continue over the forecast period. PET is the most recycled plastic all over the world, as it prevents the growth of mold, bacteria and fungi. Several inherent benefits offered by recycled PET have expanded its use in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage packaging and electronics.
