Opportunities: Rising demand for plastic waste management from emerging economies


The escalating demand for effective plastic waste management from emerging economies represents a substantial opportunity within the post-consumer recycled plastics market. As these economies undergo rapid growth and urbanization, the surge in plastic consumption leads to increased plastic waste generation, necessitating robust waste management solutions. This demand for sustainable practices offers an avenue for the adoption of post-consumer recycled plastics, enabling these economies to mitigate environmental impact, enhance resource efficiency, and align with global sustainability goals. Capitalizing on this opportunity not only addresses pressing waste challenges but also drives market expansion, innovation, and the establishment of circular economy practices in regions with burgeoning plastic waste concerns.

By End-use Application, Packaging accounts for the fastest-growing application during the forecast period.


Recycled plastics find their predominant application in packaging due to the packaging industry’s pivotal role in addressing sustainability challenges. The packaging sector’s high demand for materials aligns with the increasing emphasis on reducing plastic waste and enhancing environmental responsibility. By incorporating recycled plastics, packaging manufacturers can meet consumer expectations for eco-friendly products and contribute to circular economy initiatives. The versatility of recycled plastics allows them to replace virgin plastics in various packaging forms such as bottles, containers, and films, offering a viable solution to reduce the environmental impact of packaging waste while fostering a more sustainable industry landscape.
