The global market for plastic recycling should grow from $26.5 billion in 2020 to $34.4 billion by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% for the forecast period of 2020-2025.

  • The global market for plastic recycling by non-durable goods source should grow from $21.5 billion in 2020 to $27.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.4% for the forecast period of 2020-2025.
  • The global market for plastic recycling by durable goods source should grow from $5 billion in 2020 to $6.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.5% for the forecast period of 2020-2025.

In 2019, the global plastic recycling industry rebounded back to nearly the level of 2017, before China started to significantly ban its post-consumer plastics import in Jan 2018.

Three factors contributed to the quick recovery of the global plastic recycling market:
Europe significantly improved its capacity to recycle locally-collected plastic waste, increasing processed volume by more than four billion pounds per year from 2017-2019.
China has a huge appetite for recycled plastics. Vietnam, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand and many other countries set up facilities to produce recycled pellets and sell to the Chinese market.
Most other countries also increased domestic recycling capacity.

In 2020, the global plastic recycling business was heavily impacted by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Collecting and recycling recyclable waste has been suspended, widely. Recycled volume slumped in the first half of 2020. China and some other countries have quickly recovered from the pandemic.
