In 2022, Asia Pacific held the largest share of the recycled plastics market. The market growth in this region is mainly attributed to the growing demand for additives from the automotive, packaging, and building & construction industry. Further, increasing construction activities in emerging economies are significantly boosting the growth of the recycled plastics market. Rapid urbanization with an increasing global population is driving the demand for recycled plastic in buildings and construction activities. The rising growth of the construction industry is due to the growing population in emerging economies, including India and China. Moreover, these countries use recycled plastic in residential and commercial construction and other infrastructure projects.

Growing demand for more environmentally-friendly homes with a lower carbon footprint and open green spaces is augmenting the recycled plastics market growth for recycled plastic. Roofing titles are essential for any building and take a considerable amount of money to install. Recycled plastic is also used to build roofing titles as they are less expensive than other construction materials. Further, rising awareness among investors regarding environmental protection is driving the demand for recycled plastic in construction materials and designs of more ecologically viable homes. Increasing government expenditure and investment to improve domestic infrastructure and for sustaining economic growth would create lucrative oppourtunties for  recycled plastic in construction industry especially in developing countries.

Rising Stringent Government Regulations to Upsurge the recycling rate of plastics and favor Recycled Plastics Market Growth

Recycled plastics are resins that are manufactured by reusing waste plastic products. Furthermore, they are produced by recovering plastic scraps and other wastes and then reprocessing them into useful products. Further, recycling plastics is witnessing a boost in its growth due to the rising awareness about the environment. Many organizations are recruiting companies to opt for recycled plastics in their manufacturing facilities. Rising environmental concerns and the need for frameworks to conserve energy coupled with versatile applicability support stringent government regulations in many regions. Technological advancement in plastic recycling is supporting the demand for recycled plastic. Recycling plastic is one solution that is considered more sustainable over the long term.

Recycled Plastics Market: Segmental Overview

Based on type, the recycled plastics market is segmented ainto polyethylene terephthalate, polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene, polystyrene, and others. The market demand for polyethylene terephthalate is anticipated to grow significantly during the studied forecast period.  It is a polymer created by combining two monomers, such as Modified Ethylene Glycol and Purified Terephthalic Acid. Polyethylene recycled plastics can be identified by its recycling code#1, as they have short lifespan it is easy to recycle them, low diffusion coefficient makes polyethylene terephthalate much more suitable when compared to other plastics materials. Polyethylene terephthalate is the most widely used plastic and is clear, strong, lightweight, and 100% recyclable.

The recycled plastics market, based on source, is segmented into plastic bottles, plastic films, plastic foams, plastic fibers, and others. The recycled plastics market demand for plastic bottles is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period. Plastic bottles are the most recycled post-consumer plastics. Recycling plastic bottles can help in the conservation of 80% of energy, which is used in the manufacturing of new bottles, containers, and other products. Recycled plastic bottles are more environmentally friendly than non-recycled single-use plastic bottles,  as these recycled plastic bottles help reduce the environmental crisis due to serious climate change. Therefore, a massive shift in preference for recycled plastic bottles is required to avoid the landfill problem.

Based on application, the recycled plastics market is segmented into packaging, textile, automotive, building and construction, electrical and electronics, and others. The automotive industry is the major consumer of recycled plastics. An increase in automotive production in emerging economies with the increase in global population is projecting the demand for recycled plastics for auto parts manufacturing. The automotive industry is among the ones where plastic consumption is high. In the automotive industry, recycled plastic is used to produce new parts. The primary reason for using recycled plastic in the automotive industry helps to reduce vehicle mass, which is directly linked to reducing carbon emissions. In addition, these plastic parts are not prone to corrosion, offer flexibility and resilience for added safety, and provide thermal insulation.
