Since the early 1980s, global polymer demand has grown from around 40 million tonnes, to its current level of over 280 million tonnes, highlighting the success of this relatively speaking, new material. Today the polymer and plastics processing industry is thriving in nearly every country in the world. In the future AMI anticipates that growth will continue with demand forecast to increase. However, how much of growing resin demand will be taken by recycled resin?
AMI is preparing an authoritative report to provide an independent quantitative analysis of the global mechanical recycling industry. It aims to quantify the market for recycling, analysing the supply and demand balance, along with an evaluation of current capacity by region. A review of the end use applications for recyclate will be given, with an examination of potential future absorption.
