Market Overview

Paper Recycling Market is valued at around USD 41.53 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 60.42 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.8% over the forecast period. Waste paper is recycled by combining it with chemicals, water, and old paper.

The cellulose strands in this mixture are then cut and heated to separate into pulp or slurry. The blend is then stretched through screens to get rid of any leftover plastic or glue. It is cleaned, de-inked, bleached, and mixed with water to create newly recycled paper.

Market - Growth Factor

There will be a tremendous demand for paper products like newspaper, packaging, and writing paper as urbanisation and the middle class expand along with literacy rates in developing nations like India, China, and Brazil.

The demand for plastic packaging will decline as consumer tastes shift toward practical packaging options and sustainability, which will boost the paper and paperboard industry.

In the coming years, rising demand for paper-based packaging items in the food and industrial sectors will further improve the prospects for the paper recycling industry. If packaging trash is not recycled, it could seriously harm the environment and human health.
