Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Recycled Ocean Plastics Market

The rising requirement for sustainable and environment-friendly materials from the footwear, apparel, packaging, and construction industries was driving the demand for recycled ocean plastic before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. However, in 2020, the governments of various countries imposed lockdowns to control the spread of SARS-CoV-2 infection, which halted the operations of plastic recycling units, causing a shortage of recycled ocean plastics.  According to a report published by GA Circular, 80% of the recycling units in India, Vietnam, and the Philippines were closed during the initial months of 2020, which caused a significant shortage of recycled plastics. This had an adverse impact on the recycled ocean plastics market growth.

In 2021, many economies revived their operations. The governments of various countries relaxed the previously imposed restrictions and permitted manufacturers to operate at full capacity. This factor had a positive impact on plastic recycling activities. Many governments and NGOs are building robust waste management infrastructure to support the circular economy and minimize the threat of plastic waste on marine ecosystems. This factor would drive the demand for recycled ocean plastics during the forecast period.

Market Insights

Increasing Launch of Products Made from Recycled Ocean Plastics

Plastic pollution is a pressing global challenge due to the significant threat it poses to living organisms. According to the statistics provided by Ocean Literacy Portal by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization; plastic waste accounts for ~80% of the total marine pollution, and ~8–10 million metric tons (MMT) of plastic ends up in the ocean every year. Moreover, the volume of microplastics in the oceans is expected to surge significantly in the future. Nevertheless, the awareness regarding plastic pollution in oceans has increased in many countries, and governments and regulatory bodies are taking initiatives to recycle these plastics. Many companies are launching innovative and attractive products, such as footwear, handbags and wallets, sunglasses, and apparel, using recycled ocean plastics to achieve their sustainability goals and reduce their overall environmental footprints. All these mentioned factors drive the recycled ocean plastics market growth.

Resin Type Insights

Based on resin type, the global recycled ocean plastics market is segmented into polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), and others. The polyethylene terephthalate segment held the largest share in the market in 2021. The ease of extracting polyethylene terephthalate (PET) from oceans and waterways due to its heavier weight and ability to retain its shape is bolster the market growth in the segemnt. Moreover, rising demand for recycled ocean PET for bags & luggage and footwear applications is also driving the market growth in the region.
