North America Plastic Recycling market: Segmented by Product (Polyethylene, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Polypropylene, Polyvinyl Chloride, Polystyrene); By Application (Non-Food Contact Packaging, Food Contact Packaging, Construction, Automotive and Others) and Region - Global Analysis of Market Size, Share & Trends for 2019-2020 and Forecasts to 2031
North America Plastic Recycling market to surpass USD 0.371 billion by 2031 from USD 0.506 billion in 2021 at a CAGR of 3.15 % in the coming years, i.e., 2021-31.
Plastic is a non-biodegradable, synthetic product that is most commonly sourced from petrochemicals. Plastic recycling is the method of improving different types of plastic from waste products to reuse them for producing useful products. Before recycling, the waste and scrap go through a series of five different stages, which include categorization, washing, shredding, identification, and arrangement of plastic, and extruding.
Recycled plastic packaging offers an environment-friendly service compared to virgin plastic. The rising application of recycled plastics in packaging is anticipated to boost the demand for plastic recycling.
North America Plastic Recycling Market is segmented by Application into Non-Food Contact Packaging, Food Contact Packaging, Construction, Automotive, and Others. During the forecast period, the Non-Food Contact Packaging segment of the North America Plastic Recycling Market is estimated to hold the biggest market share and increase at the rate. This type of packaging is active in industrial processing products for securing the products from harsh weather circumstances.
North America Plastic Recycling market is divided by Products into Polyethylene, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Polypropylene, Polyvinyl Chloride, Polystyrene. During the forecast period, Polyethylene, Polyethylene Terephthalate will be the fastest-growing market, and it is expected to dominate the market. Polyethylene terephthalate is extensively used in plastic bottles of soft drinks and containers for food and juices. Additionally, it is used in the medical sector including sutures and vascular grafts. Therefore, the increasing demand for PET in the above-mentioned application is driving the growth of PET waste.
Rising concerns over the application of plastics
Rising concerns over the application of plastics, and growing demand for substitutes to conventional plastics have been observed in the market. End-use users in the market are shifting their focus toward the use of recycled plastics due to the reduced carbon footprint related with the manufacturing process of recycled plastics as compared to virgin plastics. Thus, boost the Plastic Recycling Market.
Innovation in processing techniques
The packaged food industry is driven by innovation in processing methods, which are used for improving the shelf life of food goods. The demand for packaging is large, particularly for snack food and beverage goods, which can be attributed to technological developments, changing lifestyles of consumers, contemporary retail trades, and the growing popularity of quick-service restaurants. For example, customers in North America choose packaging that is light and aesthetically appealing. This is expected to boost the growth of packaging in the coming years, thereby creating demand for plastic recycling.
High investment cost
The difference between the cost-bearing party and the prospective beneficiary, in terms of what the total cost would be and who would cover it, is one of the primary roadblocks. The total process of production of recycling plastic is extremely high. Utilities and customers both invest a lot of money. Many utilities are hesitant to transfer their priority to new technology implementation. Also, lack of awareness among consumers hinders the North America Plastic Recycling market.
Company Overview, Business Strategy, Key Product Offerings, Financial Performance, Key Performance Indicators, Risk Analysis, Recent Development, Regional Presence, SWOT Analysis
North America Plastic Recycling Market is segmented based on regional analysis into these major regions: US and Canada. The U.S. dominated the North American plastic recycling market and reported for the largest revenue share of over 90% in 2020. Most of the plastic waste generated in this region is exported to other countries for recycling. Many cities in the U.S., such as Seattle, Phoenix, and others, have plastic recycling incentives, whereby, residents are charged for landfill waste streams and not the price of recycling waste streams. Cities such as Charlotte, Houston, and Chicago are the minimum contributor cities in terms of plastic recycling.
