According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global plastic recycling market is expected to reach USD 2.45 billion at 5.82% CAGR from 2017 to 2028 (forecast period). The study addresses and examines the effect of the outbreak of COVID-19 on the global plastic recycling market, including possible opportunities and threats, drivers, and risks.

Plastic recycling is a process of recovering various classes of plastic material to be reused in other items, such as their original form. Items made from recycled plastic will typically not be recycled again. Before recycling, plastics undergo four separate phases – sorting, washing, shredding, and extruding. It is passed through these stages to ensure that it can be used for the production of different types of products. Plastic recycling is primarily carried out by two processes – heat compression and monomerization.

Plastic recycling helps save non-renewable fossil fuels, decreases the energy use used in the manufacture of new plastics, minimizes solid waste to landfill sites, and reduces emissions of gases such as carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This exercise is primarily performed in the packaging, construction, textile, automotive, and other industries.
