As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Vietnam Recycled Plastics Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the Vietnam recycled plastics market size reached 182,600 in 2018. Recycling of plastics reduces the amount of waste disposed of at landfills and lowers greenhouse gas emissions. It includes the reprocessing of post-consumer or post-industrial plastics. The process comprises sorting, washing, shredding, identification and classification of plastic, and extruding. A significant part of these recycled plastics is further utilized in the manufacturing of products such as toys, bags, fabrics, footwear and toothbrushes.
The inflating prices of conventional plastics coupled with the rising environmental concerns among individuals represent one of the key factors which are driving the recycled plastics market in Vietnam. This can also be accredited to the assistance of plastic recycling in reducing the amount of natural resources and energy required for producing virgin plastic. Additionally, the Government of Vietnam is implementing laws to accelerate and regulate the recycling of plastic products. It is also undertaking initiatives to promote plastic recycling in the country. For instance, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment in Vietnam is offering financial support to enterprises that are engaged in the plastic recycling sector by proposing easy access to low-interest rate (2.6-3.6% per year) loans with the maximum lending rate of 70% of the total project investment under the Environment Protection Fund. Looking forward, the market is projected to reach a volume of 305,600 Tons by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of around 8.7% during 2019-2024.
