Global Recycled Plastics Market – Segmentation Assessment

Segment Overview

Technavio has segmented the market based on type (PET, HDPE, PP, LDPE, and Others), industry application (packaging, construction, automotive, electrical and electronic components, and others), and geography (APAC, Europe, North America, Middle East and Africa, and South America). 

  • The PET segment will be significant during the forecast period. With the mixture of two monomers, namely modified ethylene glycol, and purified terephthalic acid  PET is created, PET is a plastic resin. PET offers recycled plastics which is affordable, lightweight, resealable, shatterproof, and recyclable. It also has high tensile strength, thermostability, and transparency. Moreover, recycled PET plastic is used to make beverage bottles, containers, furniture, and textiles. Recycled PET plastic is one of the most commonly used plastics in a wide variety of applications such as T-shirt fabrics, athletic shoes, bags, upholstery, sweaters, industrial tapes, auto parts, and plastic containers. Thus, the rising number of applications of PET in various industries will drive the growth of the global recycled plastics market during the forecast period.

Recycled Plastics Market – Market Dynamics

Key driver

The high investment in infrastructure in emerging countries is notably driving the recycled plastics market growth. The construction industry is rapidly growing, especially in emerging countries. In South America and the MEA,  governments of emerging countries are investing remarkably in residential homes due to the migration of people to urban areas. Moreover, recycled plastics are widely used in the construction industry.  Owing to the high infrastructure development in developing economies the consumption of recycled plastics in the construction sector is high. Thus, the construction industry accounted for a significant market share in the recycled plastics market. Hence, the rising demand for infrastructure projects in emerging countries is expected to drive the growth of the global recycled plastics market during the forecast period.

Major Trend

The increasing demand for recycled plastics in the automotive industry is a key trend shaping the growth of the recycled plastics market. Plastics and composites are lightweight materials that are commonly used in the application process in the automotive industry. Some of these applications include structural, powertrain, exterior and interior, and electronic and electrical components. Automakers are focusing on producing lighter, more fuel-efficient, and environmentally friendly vehicles to meet stringent environmental regulations. Using recycled plastic reduces vehicle weight, fuel consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions. Hence, rising vehicle production across the world will grow the demand for recycled plastics during the forecast period.

significant challenge

The increasing demand for biodegradable plastics is the key challenge impeding the growth of the recycled plastics market.  The preference for biodegradable materials is increasing among manufacturers and market players, with the rising demand from consumers for eco-friendly packaging. Moreover, government regulations regarding the use of plastic products are motivating manufacturers to push for biodegradable plastics. The growth of the biodegradable plastics market is driven by the emergence of renewable resources, such as biomass and bio-based raw materials. Hence, the rising demand for biodegradable plastics will hinder the growth of the recycled plastics market during the forecast period.
