By 2027, the market value of global plastic recycling is expected to have increased by more than 25 billion U.S. dollars compared to 2019. This would value the market at an estimated 60 billion U.S. dollars.
The global plastic waste industry has recently run into some challenges. Previously, China was the main importer of plastic waste from around the world. However, in 2018 new environmental regulations resulted in a huge decline in the country's imports from rich nations.
