Plastic Waste Management Market Outlook - 2027

In the last few years, the use of plastic had increased at a rapid pace across the globe. Plastic takes many years to decompose. If decomposition of plastic is not done in proper manner, then it can affect the environment in many ways such as water pollution. Many companies across the globe make use of plastic as a material for different applications such as for bottle manufacturing and packaging. Considering the government rules & regulations of waste management, it is the responsibility of companies to manage plastic waste effectively. Various types of plastics, such as Polystyrene (PS), Polypropylene, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), are used in many industries such as construction, textile, and packaging.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • The demand for plastic waste management is expected to decrease in 2020 due to low demand from different industries, such as manufacturing, construction, and packaging, owing to the lockdown imposed by governments of many countries.
  • COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production of various products in the plastic waste industry, owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This has hampered the growth of the plastic waste market significantly from last few months, and is likely to continue in 2020.
  • COVID-19 has already affected the sales of equipment and machinery in the first quarter of 2020 and is estimated to cause a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year. 
  • The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries, including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which have been badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting the demand for equipment and machinery.
  • Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on their cash reserves. Equipment and machinery companies can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players would have to modify their investment plans.
  • Equipment and machinery manufacturers must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19 infection cases start to decrease.

Top impacting factors: Market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

Plastic waste management is considered to be an important factor, which needs to be addressed by the companies. Plastic pollution across the globe is increasing day by day and it takes around 400 years to degrade completely. This is adversely affecting the wildlife and human beings, thereby affecting the whole ecosystem. In many countries, which are less developed, plastic waste is generally thrown away in oceans or rivers, owing to which the life of marine animals is in danger. Therefore, plastic waste management is a big challenge in front of the government of many countries and companies in the private sector.

In January 2019, over 30 companies across the globe came together and formed the Global Alliance to end plastic waste. It is a nonprofit organization with aim to collect, process, sell, make, use, and recycle the
plastic waste material, which has been thrown away. Considering the rise in the level of pollution, many companies are coming up with innovative solutions such as mobile application for waste management to reduce the amount of plastic waste. This is considered to be the key driving factor for the growth of the market. Further, many plastic products, which have been thrown away can be recycled to be reused, thus reducing the plastic waste. Therefore, the demand for effective plastic waste management is expected to rise during the forecast period.

New product launch to boost the market

Considering the need of effective plastic waste management, many companies try to develop and introduce new products in the market. New technologies have been used in these products for effective and efficient working. SUEZ is one of the important service providers in the plastic waste management market. Different types of services are offered by the company. In November 2019, Suez introduced a new mobile application for waste management. In this application, customer needs to scan the barcode on packaging and to show if the product are recyclable or not and the methods of sorting the waste.

Key restraining factor for the growth of the plastic waste management market

In April 2019, the European Union brought the law, which states that all types of plastic material, which cannot be reused should be banned from 2021. This law excludes the use of plastic bottles. This could hamper the growth of the market. 

In addition, the Government of India started the initiative Swachh Bharat Abhiyan in October 2019. Under this initiative, the Government of India banned on the use of plastic material, which can be used only once and cannot be recycled. Moreover, the, use of plastic water bottles in government meetings has also been stopped, which is expected to be the restraining factor for the growth of the plastic waste management market.
