Report Summary

The global plastic waste management market size was valued at USD 25.10 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period. The generation of plastic waste has increased significantly over the years. Most products that are used on a daily basis are either manufactured with plastic or are packaged in it. This waste is generated domestically, industrially and commercially.

Reprocessing of plastics, sorting plastic waste, and segregating recyclable plastic are some steps taken to manage plastic waste. Among these, recycling plastic waste is the most effective way of controlling plastic pollution. It assists in reducing the production of additional plastic, along with maintaining a low carbon footprint on the planet. Owing to the diversity of its application, the recycled plastic can then be used in production of clothes, storage containers, films, and garbage bags among others. Effective implementation of an efficient plastic waste management system can ensure reduced dangers on public health, economy and ecological preservation.
