The editors of the industry magazine Plastics Review conducted a study of the recycling market in Poland. The value of the entire plastics recycling market in 2021 amounted to approx. PLN 2.8 billion net (EUR 613 million).

This is not much, considering the role that recycling is supposed to play in the functioning of the circular economy. Business-wise, the recycling market looks very encouraging: an increase in sales value by nearly 50% in 2021 compared to the previous year, with an excellent profitability of nearly 11%.

Compared to its EU counterparts, the recycling industry in Poland is pioneeringly small: it is made up of up to 150 companies with revenues of over PLN 1 million (EUR 220,000) net per year.

In 2021, recyclers operating in Poland processed approx. 400 thousand. tonnes of plastic waste, which shows how extremely attractive the recycling industry is in terms of investment. Therefore, one can be convinced that the scale of business on this market will grow dynamically, and that really large capital will move to conquer it.

There is a very good future ahead of plastics recycling in Poland”, says Waldemar Sobański, Editor-in-Chief of Plastics Review. The influx of capital will contribute to the rapid implementation of modern technologies, which should bring rapid development of this business. “In our opinion, recycling of plastics is one of the most interesting investment directions in the Polish economy in the next few years”, believes Sobański.

The results of the study were based on an analysis of the financial results of over 120 plastics recyclers in Poland. The editors of Plastics Review selected TOP 77 PLASTICS RECYCLING in POLAND from this group, i.e. an elite ranking of 77 companies currently playing a key role in domestic recycling.
