Mechanical Plastics Recycling European Market
Market Report

Mechanical Plastics Recycling European Market

  • Expanding on the first edition, this study provides a comprehensive analysis for anyone involved in the plastics industry value chain – resin producer to end users alike.

    In a field where supply and demand is at the core, this study looks at the waste plastics value chain and flows of recyclate, evaluating the current capacity in Europe. Both for today and the future.

Report scope

  • Product scope

    The study covers mechanically recycled commodity polymers (including regrinds, pellets, compounds) which can be re-converted into new plastics products. For the purpose of this report, AMI Consulting has discounted volumes recycled by companies that only process their own industrial waste, to be reused for their own in-house production.

    Polymer scope

    The report covers the recycling of the following polymers:

    • Polyethylene
    • Polypropylene
    • Polyvinyl chloride
    • Polyethylene terephthalate
    • Polystyrene

    Recyclate production is quantified by the following waste sources:

    • Municipal and commercial
    • Agricultural film (for PE only)
    • Production scrap (industrial)
    • Other
  • Data provided

    For the years 2020, 2021, 2022, 2025 and 2030. Virgin polymer demand is quantified at the point of primary processing. Recyclate volumes are measured as output of processing. Tonnages are expressed in metric tonnes.

    The report was published in February 2022. Updated data is available, please enquire for more information.

    End use scope & segmentation

    End use applications are quantified by the following segments with further analysis provided by polymer where relevant:

    • Flexible packaging
    • Rigid packaging
    • Building, construction and infrastructure
    • Automotive and transport
    • Electric/Electronic
    • Other injection moulding
    • Other extrusion
    • Other applications
  • Geo scope

    Geographical scope

    The report covers the European market defined as France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium & Luxembourg, Scandinavia, other Western Europe, Poland, and other Central Europe.
