Global Recycled Plastic and Plastic Waste to Oil Market to Witness Significant Growth in Asia Pacific

Article Description

Recycling plastic waste is a complex concern to which no real solution has proven to be completely effective and environmentally responsible. Many recycling techniques have in fact proven to be rather expensive, energy inefficient, and as harmful to the environment, if not more, as plastic itself. The global population continues its exponential rise and economic and industrial activities thrive at an even faster rate. This has made the issue of recycling plastic waste, which accounts for a large portion of total waste generated on everyday basis from several sources, increasingly severe. Thus continuous research activities are being undertaken across the globe with an aim of finding an effective method of recycling plastic waste or gaining something beneficial from the process. 

Recycled plastic and plastic waste to oil is being considered a good way of tackling the ever-growing mounds of plastic waste across the globe. The concept has no longer remained only a theory and has been brought to practical application for some time now. According to a recent market research study by Transparency Market Research, the global recycled plastic and plastic waste to oil market will exhibit a robust 12.6% CAGR from 2016 through 2024. The market, which was valued at US$542.8 mn in 2014, is expected to reach US$1,971.4 mn by 2024.
