May 26, 2023 | Packaging

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "India Recycled Plastics Market Report by Plastic Type (Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Polypropylene (PP), Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), and Others), Raw Material (Plastic Bottles, Plastic Films, Rigid Plastic and Foam, Fibres, and Others), Application (Non-Food Contact Packaging, Food Contact, Packaging, Construction, Automotive, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the India recycled plastics market size reached US$ 3,996 Million in 2023. Recycled plastics include materials derived from the process of recycling plastic waste, which involves collecting used plastic products and converting them into new, usable forms. Plastic recycling tries to alleviate these environmental issues by lowering the need for virgin plastic and minimizing the detrimental effects on ecosystems. The collection and classification of plastic garbage according to its kind and content is the first step in the recycling process, which consists of numerous steps. After being separated, the plastic trash is cleaned and destroyed to get rid of pollutants like dirt, labels, and adhesives. The melted plastic is then used to create little pellets or flakes that are known as nurdles. These needles complete the recycling process by serving as the raw material to produce new plastic goods.

India Recycled Plastics Market Trends:

The escalating environmental consciousness among the masses majorly drives the market in India. This can be supported by the growing awareness about the environmental impact of plastic wastes. Along with this, the widespread adoption of recycled plastics across various industries, including packaging, automotive, construction, and consumer goods, is significantly supporting the market. For instance, the automotive sector is utilizing recycled plastics for interior components, while the construction industry is incorporating recycled plastics in building materials, thereby propelling the market. In addition, governments of numerous countries are implementing stringent regulations and policies to tackle plastic waste and promote the use of recycled plastics, such as single-use plastics, by extended producer responsibility (EPR) programs and providing incentives for companies to use recycled materials. Apart from this, the increasing collaborations and partnerships among stakeholders across the value chain, including recyclers, manufacturers, retailers, and consumers to develop efficient collection and recycling systems, are also impacting the market. Furthermore, continual advancements in recycling sorting, cleaning, and processing techniques to produce high-quality recycled plastics that can be used in a wide range of applications are creating a positive market outlook. Some of the other factors driving the market include volatile raw material prices and changing consumer preferences. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 6,220 Million by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9% during 2024-2032.
