H1 2023: The leading players in the Plastic Recycling market on a global scale were Masotina S.p.A, I.blu - Gruppo iren, and Montello S.p.A. In March 2023, PureCycle Technologies and Mitsui & Co. Ltd. announced the signing of a heads of agreement (HOA) for the development and operation of a polypropylene (PP) recycling plant in Japan. This plant will convert PP waste into ultra-pure recycled (UPR) resin, with an annual capacity of 59 thousand tonnes (130 million pounds) with the expected year of completion and operation is 2026. In April 2023, Fost Plus signed a deal with Morssinkhof Plastics Belgium to construct a new plastic recycling facility. The plant will convert polypropylene, polyethylene, and HDPE packaging waste into raw materials for further packaging purposes. The plant will have an annual recycling capacity of 40 thousand tonnes. Fost Plus intends to supply the plant with 24 thousand tonnes of PMD garbage gathered from Belgian residences. Its manufacturing capabilities are reported to include polypropylene solutions such as ready-meal trays, yogurt cups, and butter dishes, as well as HDPE bottles for milk, shampoo and conditioner, detergent, and shower gel. The plant will be operational in October 2024 and will recycle polypropylene (PP) packaging (such as butter tubs and ready-meal trays) as well as polyethylene packaging (such as shampoo and milk packaging). In May 2023, TotalEnergies announced the acquisition of Iber Resinas of Spain, a popular name in the mechanical recycling of plastics. TotalEnergies aimed to grow its production of circular polymers in Europe, improve its access to feedstock through Iber Resinas' supplier network, and expand its portfolio of recycled goods as a result of this acquisition.

The global Plastic Recycling market had reached approximately 55 million tonnes in 2022 and is expected to grow at an impressive CAGR of 5.57% during the forecast period till 2030. The demand for recycled plastics market is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR globally as it finds application in packaging, automotive, building & construction, electrical and electronics industry, among others. Increasing usage of plastics due to their lightweight nature, durability, and other favorable properties led to high demand for plastics thereby adversely affecting the environment. Growing awareness about the benefits of energy-saving and the growing need to reduce the carbon footprint is likely to play a positive role to increase the demand for the global Plastic Recycling market.

Factors such as growing applications of recycled plastics in packaging, electrical & electronics, textile, building& construction, automotive, and other industries in addition to the advantages of using recycled plastics aids in lower energy consumption are likely to fuel the demand for Plastic Recycling in the upcoming years. Increasing government regulation and policies regarding the use of single-use plastics in various countries as well as the surge in investment to develop new technology resulting in higher energy efficiency is expected to foster the market demand. The global Plastic Recycling market is anticipated to reach a number of approximately 84.3 million tonnes in the forecast period of 2030.

Asia pacific region is the largest generator and recycler of plastic waste. This region held about 50 percent of the global Plastic Recycling market in 2022 and are expected to maintain their dominance during the forecast period as well. The introduction of several regulations to promote the use of recycled plastic and the rise in demand for packed and packaged food are the contributing factors expected to strengthen the market growth in the forecast period.

Based on type, the global plastic can be recycled into Polyethylene Terepthalate (PET), Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polystyrene (PS), and Others. Although, Polyethylene (PE) is dominating the global Plastic Recycling market. Plastics can be recycled by using methods such as landfill, thermal, mechanical, and chemical methods.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Plastic Recycling market is segmented into Packaging, Building and Construction, Textile, Automotive, Electrical and Electronics, and Others. Due to wide usage in industries like food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and general-use goods, the Packaging industry is dominating the Plastic Recycling market. In 2022, this industry consumed approximately 40% of the market. Furthermore, Building and Construction industry also holds noticeable market shares.

Major players for Plastic Recycling globally include Masotina S.p.A, I.blu - Gruppo iren, Montello S.p.A., The Alba Group., GT Recycling, STF Group, Jayplas., Indorama Ventures Sustainable Solutions LLC, Viridor Polymer Recycling Limited, NPP 'Polyplastic, Hubert Eing Kunststoffverwertung GmbH, Monoworld Recycling Ltd., Metro Plastic, Clean Tech U.K. Ltd, OOO 'Fantastik Plastik,' and Others.
