At 9.2% CAGR, the Asia pacific Recycled Ocean Plastics Market is speculated to be worth US$ 12,144.16 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights
According to Business Market Insights’ research, the Asia-Pacific recycled ocean plastics market was valued at US$ 7,164.44 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 12,144.16 million by 2028, registering a CAGR of 9.2% from 2022 to 2028. Emerging applications of recycled ocean plastics in food packaging and growing trend of sustainable clothing are the critical factors attributed to the Asia-Pacific recycled ocean plastics market expansion.
Packaging plays a critical role in ensuring food safety. Food packaging material acts as a barrier against oxygen, moisture, bacteria, and pathogens, protecting the contamination of food. The food packaging industry presents lucrative opportunities for recycled ocean plastic companies owing to increasing concerns related to environmental sustainability and plastic waste. Earlier, there were quality and safety concerns related to the use of recycled ocean plastics in food packaging as these materials contain toxic chemicals that can deteriorate food quality after coming in direct contact. However, harnessing technological advancements, manufacturers of recycled ocean plastics have begun offering food-grade ocean plastic materials in recent years. Oceanworks, one of the prominent manufacturers of recycled ocean plastics, offers food-grade recycled ocean plastic resins such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and polypropylene (PP). Thus, recycled ocean plastics are witnessing strong demand from the food packaging industry, which offers lucrative opportunities to the manufacturers, thereby driving the Asia-Pacific recycled ocean plastics market.
On the contrary, challenges associated with waste collection and processing hurdles the growth of Asia-Pacific recycled ocean plastics market.
