Europe Recycled Plastics Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The Europe recycled plastics market reached a volume of 11 Million Tons in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Recycled plastic refers to the scrap or waste plastic that is again recovered to manufacture useful products with the help of various recycling processes. When different types of plastics are melted together, they tend to phase-separate, like oil and water, and are set in the form of layers. The recycling is generally done using heat compression method or the monomer recycling process that reverses the polymerization reaction in order to recycle the same type of condensed polymer. Europe is the second largest producer of plastics in the world, after China. Huge plastic production in the region leads to the generation of enormous quantities of plastic waste that harms the environment. The recycling of such large amounts of waste plastics helps a lot in energy conservation, saving natural resources that are used to make virgin plastics, clearing landfill space, thereby maintaining a balance in the plastics industry in the region.

According to the European Association of Plastic Manufacturers, the plastic waste recycling has increased by almost 80% in last 10 years in Europe. The concerns rising out due to the difficulty in disposal of virgin plastics, growing awareness about energy savings and the increasing usage of waste plastics in many applications are expected to positively influence the growth of the recycled plastics market in the region. The plastic industry also represents as one of the major sectors of the European economy. The demand for various plastics is rising in packaging, building & construction and automotive sectors across various European countries, thereby creating a positive impact on the overall recycled plastics demand. Moreover, many associations and commissions have been formed to create awareness about the plastic recycling among manufacturers, distributors as well as European citizens. Concerns regarding waste disposal and contamination of plastic waste are driving the adoption of recyclable plastics specially in the food and beverages packaging sector, consumer and retail sector. Catalyzed by such factors, the European recycled plastic market is expected to surge in the coming years.
