    What are post-consumer recycled plastics?

    Post-consumer recycled plastics are the plastics which are made from the recycling process of already used plastics such as packaging material and electronics. This is produced to reduce the environmental impact of plastics on the earth.

    Market Dynamics

    The growing demand for post-consumer recycled plastics is mainly due to industrialization and awareness regarding reducing the environmental impact of plastics through the process of recycling. The market drivers for post-consumer recycled plastics are the growing consciousness about the environment and the global policies and corporate social responsibilities. There is a growing demand for such products by industries that are looking for environment-friendly products to cut on their impact on the environment. Stringent technological advancements in recycling processes raises the standard and applicability of recycled plastics. However, market growth has its difficulties because of the unpredictability of raw material availability, costly processing, and uneven quality. Educational and technological alliances need to be formed with other stakeholders to pull together and combat these hindrances to maintain the market’s progression.

    Segment Analysis

    Service Insights

    "The recycling segment accounted for the largest market share."

    Based on the service type, the market is segmented as collection & transportation, recycling, incineration, and landfills/disposal. The recycling segment held the largest segment of the market in 2020, and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period, owing to increasing number of plastic recycling plants all over the globe as mandated by the strict regulations of governments for recycling plastics.

    Polymer Insights

    "The polyethylene terephthalate (PET) segment accounted for the largest market share."

    Based on the polymer type, the market is segmented as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyurethane (PUR), polystyrene (PS), and others. The polyethylene terephthalate (PET) segment is expected to remain dominant as well as the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period, due to its wide range of applications, such as in food packaging, electronics, and pharmaceutical packaging and its specific properties such as moisture-resistant, non-absorbent, and non-fluorescent.

    End-Use Application Insights

    "The packaging segment accounted for the largest market share."

    Based on the end-use application type, the post-consumer recycled plastics market is segmented as packaging, building & construction, automotive, furniture, and others. The packaging application leads the market and is also estimated to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period, owing to surge in population and increasing spending power of people, which is giving rise to construction of new houses in the urban and sub-urban areas globally, and growth in the construction of non-residential buildings and institutes is also a major reason for the dominance of this segment.

    Regional Trends

    "North America accounted for the largest market share."

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to be the fastest-growing market for post-consumer recycled plastics during the forecast period. The region’s growth is owing to the technological innovations in the waste management industry and government regulations regarding the disposal, collection and recycling of plastic wastes. Europe and Asia-Pacific are also expected to offer substantial growth opportunities during the forecast period.
