North America and Europe Lead in Post-Consumer Recycled Plastics Market Potential

The post-consumer recycled plastics market is projected to grow from USD 62.1 billion in 2023 to USD 92.6 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 8.3%. The post-consumer recycled plastics market refers to the industry involved in the collection, processing, and reuse of plastics that have been used by consumers and then discarded as waste. These plastics are reclaimed from sources like plastic bottles, containers, packaging, and other products that have fulfilled their original purpose and are no longer needed by the consumer. The post-consumer recycled plastics market is driven by environmental concerns, as recycling these plastics helps reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills or pollutes the environment. The recycling process typically involves sorting, cleaning, and processing the collected plastics to produce recycled plastic pellets or flakes that can be used as raw materials in the production of new plastic products.

Most manufacturers in this market are based in Europe and North America. Veolia Environnement SA (France), Suez SA (France), Waste Management, Inc. (US), Republic Services, Inc. (US), Waste Connections, Inc. (Canada), Biffa plc (UK), Clean Harbors, Inc. (US), Stericycle, Inc. (US), Remondis SE & Co. KG (Germany), DS Smith plc (UK), Plastipak Holdings Inc. (US), KW Plastics (US), MBA Polymers, Inc. (US), Jayplas (UK), and Envision Plastics Industries LLC (US) are among the leading players operating in the post-consumer recycled plastics market.
