PARIS ­| January 11th, 2024 – BG IRIS, Bryan Garnier’s research platform, is pleased to release the “The Plastic Revival”, a comprehensive analysis of the sector as well as underlying financing and M&A market activities. 

Plastic was fantastic, but now it has become a major burden as most plastics currently in use are produced from non-renewable resources such as crude oil and natural gas. The annual global production of plastics amounted to 400 million tons in 2022 and is set to reach 750 million tons by 2050, yet only 9% of plastic waste is recycled globally. 

For decades, efforts to collect and recycle plastic waste have been economically challenging. However, broad coalitions of players across the plastics value chain are taking actions to address this transgenerational issue. Real growth for sustainable plastics is just about to start and should merely accentuate over the coming years. 

Within this white paper, we provide a comprehensive guide to the plastic revolution, unveil emerging regulations, and explore advanced recycling technologies. Our analysis uncovers challenges and expert opinions that will shape the industry’s future. 

To dive deep into this topic and discover more about plastic recycling as a transformative industry of the future, download the white paper.
