Plastic Waste Management Market To Grow To $ 41.58

Pune, India, November 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – According to Fortune Business Insights, The global share of the plastic waste management industry is expected to reach $ 41.58 billion by 2027, with a CAGR of 3.1% during the forecast period. Uncontrolled plastic pollution levels during the COVID-19 pandemic are expected to create unique growth opportunities for the market, suggests Fortune Business Insights â„¢ in its report. The COVID-19 outbreak has sparked a race for the production of personal protective equipment (PPE), which is mostly made from plastic.

However, their sustainable disposal, especially the elimination of single-use plastic, has raised concerns among environmentalists and academics, as PPE contains large amounts of microplastics. For example, the Global Fund estimates that if only 1% of the billion masks used in Italy each month are inappropriately discarded, it could lead to the accumulation of 10 million plastic masks in the environment, causing unprecedented pollution. . In such a dire scenario, effective plastic waste management techniques can play a critical role in tackling long-term threats posed by skyrocketing levels of plastic pollution, further fueled by the coronavirus pandemic. However, due to supply chain disruptions, the growth of the plastic waste management market will be moderate for the current year.
