Chemical Recycling Service Market to Total US$ 149.24 Billion by 2034 Amid Surging Demand for Circular and Sustainable Economy

Germany’s chemical recycling service market is projected to exhibit a CAGR of around 25% in the assessment period. Increasing developments in industries such as chemical, packaging, and automotive in Germany are anticipated to lead to a high demand for premium recycled materials to cater to stringent norms and sustainability goals.

NEWARK, Del, April 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In 2023, the chemical recycling service market was valued at US$ 13.78 billion worldwide. The global market for chemical recycling services is expected to rise at a CAGR of 25.8% between 2024 and 2034. It is anticipated that the total market value will have increased from US$ 15.71 billion in 2024 to US$ 149.24 billion by 2034.

Rising awareness of environmental issues and shifting preferences of consumers have become significant drivers for the adoption of chemical recycling services. The leading concern is plastic waste accumulation. Traditional plastic has limitations, such as contamination issues and the inability to recycle certain types of plastics effectively.

Consumer preferences have changed significantly. Modern consumers are becoming more aware of the environmental impact of the products they buy. As a result, they are continually searching for more sustainable alternatives.

They prefer products and packaging that are recyclable, renewable, or biodegradable. Hence, companies face challenges in integrating sustainable practices throughout their supply chains, including the use of modern recycling technologies such as chemical recycling.

Chemical recycling services have enormous potential to contribute to more sustainable plastic waste management. These can lead to the development of a more circular and sustainable economy while also aligning with the preferences of environmentally conscious consumers.

Due to this, governments of several countries around the world are taking initiatives to make the switch to a circular economy. This united front is a major driver of chemical recycling adoption.

A circular economy model chooses the efficiency of resources, lowers waste generation, and encourages material reuse, recycling, and regeneration. Chemical recycling is closely aligned with circular economy principles since it allows valuable resources to be recovered from waste materials that would otherwise be discarded.

Chemical recycling tackles the increasing problem of plastic pollution by offering a way to reuse and recover plastic waste, reducing the need for virgin resources that come from oil & gas. This not only helps to slow the depletion of natural resources but also helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and relieve pressure on landfill capacity.

Government-led efforts to transition to a circular economy provide a compelling reason to adopt chemical recycling. By tackling environmental concerns, maneuvering regulatory changes, and allowing economic opportunities, these programs promote broad acceptance of groundbreaking recycling technologies and pave the way for a more sustainable future.

“The future growth potential of chemical recycling services is promising, driven by increasing environmental concerns, regulatory pressures, and the need for sustainable waste management solutions. These are likely to fuel investment, innovation, and adoption of advanced recycling technologies.” – comments Nikhil Kaitwade (Associate Vice President at Future Market Insights, Inc.)
