Increased focus on environmental preservation to drive growth

The growing focus of large companies on the plastic value chain to eliminate plastic pollution will intensify the market in the foreseeable future. For example, in January 2019, more than 30 global companies created a new “Alliance to End Plastic Waste” in London to eliminate plastic pollution, especially plastic that enters the oceans.

The initiative involves an investment of US$1.5 billion over the next five years. Global participation through strategies will facilitate plastic waste management, education and engagement at all levels of communities, and cleanup of existing areas polluted with concentrated plastic. Thus, the increasing adoption of plastic waste management services to achieve sustainable goals in the future will facilitate the growth of the market.

Regional analysis:

High accumulation of waste to present immense potential for the Asia-Pacific market

The Asia-Pacific market is expected to account for the largest share of the global market owing to the growing production of plastic waste per capita in the region. Urbanization and industrialization have led to a huge accumulation of waste, thus creating opportunities for the market. China is the largest contributor to plastic waste generation, accounting for over 60% of the share.

Likewise, India is expected to account for a high market share during the forecast period. The implementation of strict environmental policies in Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand will help in the expansion of the market in Asia-Pacific. However, the lack of proper collection and management along with the existing “throwaway culture” may hamper the market growth in the region.
