Market Overview:

The Recycled Plastics market is a growing market with an average CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. As of 2018, Recycled Plastics market industry is valued at 39.47 Billion USD, and it is estimated to reach 54 Billion USD by the year 2023. Asia Pacific (APAC) region had the largest market share of the Recycled Plastics market in 2018, and its stock is projected to grow during the forecast period continually.

Recent Development:

LyondellBasell, one of the largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies in the world, and SUEZ, a global leader in smart, sustainable resource management announced the successful completion of a transaction making each company a 50 / 50 partner in Quality Circular Polymers (QCP), a premium plastics recycling company in Sittard-Geleen, the Netherlands. You can read more about it here.

Market Drivers and Restraints:


Rising public awareness about the environmental hazard and various Government initiatives to recycle used plastic is the biggest market driver.

Rapid urbanization in the APAC region coupled with more disposable income has led to people buying more goods which are made up of recycled plastics.

Recent development in technologies allows Recycled Plastic materials to be used in the production of various products such as plastic bottles, bin liners, carrier bags, etc.


  1. Goods made up of virgin plastic is way cheaper than that made of recycled plastic. Production of large quantities of virgin plastic is a significant restraint of the recycled plastic market.
  2. Recycled Plastics Market Segmentation Analysis

By Source:

Based on the source, the Recycled Plastics market is divided into:

  1. Bottles
  2. Films
  3. Fibers
  4. Foams

Based on the source, the Bottles segment has the highest market share as of 2018, and its stock is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is mostly because the collection of the plastic bottle is straightforward and there is an organized network of sorting and collection of plastic bottles post-consumer use.

By Type:

Based on the type, the Recycled Plastics market is divided into:

  1. PET
  2. PE
  3. PP
  4. PVC
  5. PS

Based on the type, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) has the largest segment of Recycled Plastic Market by type in 2018 and is projected to remain so in the forecast period. This is because most of the plastic bottles are made up of PET and plastic bottles products can be collected very quickly compared to the other plastic products. 

By End-Use Industry:

Based on the end-use industry, the Recycled Plastics market is divided into:

  1. Packaging
  2. Building & Construction
  3. Textiles
  4. Automotive
  5. Electrical & Electronics

Based on the End-Use Industry, Packaging segment has the largest market share as of 2018 and is projected to remain so in the forecast period. Packaging segment has the highest market share by end-use industry for both virgin plastic and recycled plastic. Increasing population coupled with higher disposable income has led to more production of goods which requires plastic for packaging. The increased environmental consciousness has led to a subsequent rise in the usage of recycled plastic in packaging.

Recycled Plastics Market Geographical Analysis:

The Asia Pacific (APAC) region is the largest and fastest growing market for Recycled Plastics across the globe which is majorly driven by the growing demand from end-use industries, such as packaging and building & construction. APAC region is projected to continue its dominance in the recycled plastic market during the forecast period. The growing disposable income and growing population of the APAC is the major driving force behind more consumption of plastic goods. The region’s flourishing manufacturing sector, ample availability of labor and a competitive cost base are some of the other reason for APAC region to be the top in Recycled Plastics Market.

Recycled Plastics Market Key Players:

Veolia (France), Suez (France), KW Plastics (US), Jayplas (UK), B. Schoenberg & Co. (US), B&B Plastics (US), Green Line Polymers (US), Clear Path Recycling (US), Custom Polymers (US), and Plastipak Holdings (US) are some of the major players in recycled plastics market.
