Plastic recycling refers to the process of collecting and re-using different types of plastic wastes. Before recycling takes place, the waste and scrap undergo a series of five different stages which include sorting, washing, shredding, identification and classification of plastic, and extruding. Products manufactured from plastics are usually non-biodegradable in nature and can lead to various environmental concerns. Thus, recycling plastic helps to reduce the amount of waste disposed of at landfill sites, thereby lowering the amount of greenhouse gas emissions released from landfills.

Global Recycled Plastics Market Drivers:
Reduction of plastic wastes and numerous recycling programmes have become a priority for both developed and developing nations across the globe. Owing to this, governments in different regions are implementing policies and regulations for controlling waste production, encouraging the reuse and recycling of plastic wastes, and encouraging systematic waste treatment. Governments are also enforcing landfill taxes, waste disposal taxes, recycling credit schemes, deposit refund systems, etc. to promote effective waste management. These measures by governments in various countries and states are expected to further facilitate the growth of the recycled plastics market.
The demand for plastic material has been constantly increasing across several industries like food and beverage, automotive, packaging and healthcare. The development of these industries can be accredited to rising population, inflating disposable incomes and continuous product innovations. In this context, higher manufacturing cost of virgin resins has necessitated the use of recycled plastic products, thereby bolstering the growth of the global recycled plastics market.
Plastic manufacturers and recyclers are now being more focused on adding value and consumerism to the recycled plastic products. They are coming up with secondary containment products, laundry carts, bulk storage containers etc. through roto moulding methods.
Several brands are investing in research and development to enhance the quality performance of recycled plastic products and incorporate them in every plastic component that they use.
