Key Highlights of Global Plastic Recycling Market

  • In a report published by Transparency Market Research, it is predicted that the global plastic recycling market would expand at a stellar pace of 6.8% over the period ranging from 2019 to 2027. Furthermore, the total value of the global plastic recycling market is expected to touch US$60 Bn by 2027, rising up from a value of US$34 Bn in 2018.
  • The global plastic recycling market is expanding at a sturdy pace in recent times, majorly due to the growing focus on environmental sustainability. Plastic recycling has become an obligation for all major industries that intend to retain their corporate value and social responsibility.
  • Statistics related to environmental pollution reveal abysmal figures about the amount of plastic that is discharged in the surrounding on a daily basis.
