At a CAGR of 7.1%, Chemical Recycling Market 2022 | Business Growth, Opportunities, Top Key Players and Forecast to 2030 | By R&I

Chemical recycling is the process of chemically transforming waste plastic into useful end products. Plastic items made after processing plastic waste are included in the market size for chemical recycling. Through chemical recycling, plastic waste is disassembled into its constituent molecular pieces. Plastic is broken down in this fashion because it directly affects the chemistry of its polymers, allowing for their reconstitution back to their original fundamental elements, wherein they are then used to create new polymers or petrochemical feedstock.

Global Plastic Waste Outlook:

According to a recent OECD report, the globe is producing twice as much plastic garbage as it did 20 years ago, with only 9% of it being properly recycled. The majority of this material gets disposed of in landfills, burned, or leaks into the environment.

The OECD's first Global Plastics Outlook reveals that while rising populations and incomes drive a relentless increase in the amount of plastic being used and thrown away, policies to curb its leakage into the environment are falling short. This report was released ahead of UN talks on international action to reduce plastic waste. About half of the plastic garbage produced among OECD nations. The amount of plastic waste produced annually per person differs between the United States (221 kg) and European OECD countries (114 kg) and Japan and Korea (69 kg).

The majority of plastic pollution is caused by the improper collection and disposal of macro plastics, or larger plastic debris. However, leakage of micro plastics, or synthetic polymers with a diameter of less than 5 mm, from items like industrial plastic pellets, synthetic textiles, road markings, and tire wear, is also a major concern.

According to the research, the COVID-19 issue caused a 2.2% decline in plastics use in 2020 as economic activity slowed, but an increase in littering, food delivery, and plastic medical equipment like masks has caused the consumption of plastics to climb. The resumption of economic activity coincided with an increase in plastics consumption.

Chemical Recycling Market: Dynamics

Government restrictions on the use of conventional plastic are becoming more prevalent, and there is an increasing focus on reducing plastic usage as a result of the worsening environmental contamination. As a result, the market for recycled plastic is growing quickly. An increase in public knowledge of the benefits of using recycled plastic versus ordinary plastics will also contribute to the anticipated market expansion. There are significant aspects that stimulate the use of these products and their derivatives, which is fueling the expansion of the market. Recycled plastic products are also being used in end-use industries including automotive, packaging, electronics, and other industries.

Due to a lack of knowledge about the benefits of recycled plastic items and their derivatives, consumers frequently opt for new products over recycled ones. As a result, the industry for recycling plastic is severely hampered in its ability to grow. The enormous rise and flexibility of the demand for these materials across a range of end-use sectors will also continue to pose a substantial barrier to the market's growth as bio-plastics become more widely used globally. Because they don't require the chemical recycling process, bioplastics will eventually suppress demand for it as their market share over regular plastics increases.

The continual development of R&D activities to produce biodegradable and ecologically friendly recycled plastics to reduce environmental impacts represents a substantial potential for the growth of the plastic recycling industry. Another encouraging development that will spur market expansion in the years to come is the textile industry's growing use of recycled plastics in the manufacture of fabrics.

Due to their non-reactive nature, these polymers have also seen a surge in demand in the packaging of goods, especially personal care items. The market will expand as a result of the increased use of recycled plastic in packaging for consumer goods.
