According to Technavio analysts, the global recycled plastics market will grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. Favorable regulations on the use of recycled plastics by end-user industries drive the global recycled plastics market at a steady rate. A food safety authority published a scientific opinion on the safety assessment of two recycling processes used for recycling HDPE plastic bottles for use as food contact material. According to the European Commission, all plastic packaging in the European Union market will be reduced. This will lead to a decline in the usage of single-use plastics and the international use of microplastics will be restricted.

In this report, Technavio highlights the growing environmental concerns as one of the key emerging trends in the global recycled plastics market:

Growing environmental concerns

The growing focus on using sustainable alternatives to plastics increases the demand for recycled plastics at a stable rate. Recycled plastic is extensively used as a substitute for aluminum and steel. Most plastics are made from petroleum or natural gas, which are non-renewable resources, and affect the environment adversely.

“The pollution caused by the plastic landfills and incineration poses serious hazards to the wildlife, plants, and humans. Recycling reduces the threat of global warming, reduces ozone layer depletion, and maintains the ecological imbalance,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
