There is a significant increase in demand for recycled paper due to the growing initiatives of governments of various nations to encourage waste paper recycling. The recycled paper is limited to the paper used in industrial applications, but it also includes household waste paper such as newspapers, magazines, and packaging papers. The generation of paper waste from these sources is very high, and this waste needs to be recycled rather than dumping it over or burning it. With the implementation of government regulations and the formation of new associations related to recycled paper, the market for recycled paper is estimated to expand rapidly in the coming years.

The recycled paper market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Many Asia Pacific countries, including Australia, China, India, and Japan, have many manufacturing industries such as steel, mining and metallurgy, petrochemicals, oil & gas, food & beverages, and textile. With rapid economic growth and urbanization, waste generation and management are becoming major social and environmental issues in Asia. Every country in Asia has specific measures of solid waste management and material-cycle policy. A landfill is the most common disposal option adopted in many Asian countries since it is inexpensive. Many countries in this region have recently introduced laws on municipal solid waste (MSW). According to the World Bank, the urban areas in APAC produce ~760,000 tons of MSW per day, and this figure is estimated to increase to 1.8 million tons by 2025. The potential demand for the products such as white & all colored paper, cardboard, newspaper, magazines & brochures, shredded paper, and printed documents from various industries in Asia Pacific is increasing. Thus, it is accelerating the need for recycled paper in Asia Pacific, boosting the market growth.
The COVID-19 pandemic had drastically altered the status of the chemical & materials sector and negatively impacted the growth of the recycled paper market. The implementation of measures to combat the spread of the virus had aggravated the situation and impacted the growth of several industrial sectors. The sudden distortion had impacted industries such as automotive and packaging in operational efficiencies and disruptions in the value chains attributable to the sudden closure of national and international boundaries. The significant decline in the growth of several industrial sectors significantly impacted the demand for recycled paper in the global market. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the market has had a negative impact on its production due to factory shutdowns across the globe. This pandemic is projected to impact the recycled paper market at a moderate level, and the market is anticipated to recover in the next two to three quarters.

The increasing awareness regarding the environmental impact of the accumulation of waste and failure to manage it have been among the major reasons driving various governments worldwide to enforce regulations associated to waste management. The paper recycling industry has been expanding across many countries such as the US, Canada, India, China, Japan, and Germany. The governments of various nations are implementing regulations to encourage the recycling of waste paper. Numerous associations such as The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA), Independent Waste Paper Processors Association (IWPPA), The Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI), and European Recovered Paper Association (ERPA) encourage the practice of recycling paper. Such associations are supporting the growth of the recycled paper market.
Based on type, the recycled paper market is segmented into pre-consumer waste and post-consumer waste. The pre-consumer waste segment accounted for a larger market share in 2020, and it is expected to grow faster during the forecast period. Pre-consumer recycling is the reclamation of waste materials created during the manufacturing or distribution of products before delivery to a consumer. Pre-consumer recycled materials can be broken down and remanufactured into similar or different materials. In the case of paper, pre-consumer waste refers to the scraps and trimmings that were cut off and discarded during the cutting process. Thus, the pre-consumer waste segment is anticipated to hold a potential growth opportunity in the coming years.
