Rubber & Plastics Industry Turns Better in Post-pandemic
Publish Date: 2020/07/30


We always remember that the bans on plastics all over the world in recent years have had a huge impact on the industry. According to a new study by the Freedonia Group, plastics are expected to lose its global market share of disposable products for food services by 2024 to paper and other more eco-friendly materials.

COVID-19, however, has suspended not only the development of many industries, but also those bans. It is reported that the pandemic will lead to a short-term boost to the disposable food service market all around the world.

Disposable Plastics are more sanitary

The reports show the pandemic has changed perceptions of disposable plastic products as being more sanitary than reusable products. People would like to use disposable cups, cutleries and plates instead of the reusable cutleries once the restaurants are back to work.



According to the latest report from Feerdonia Group, the catering suppliers will not go away anytime soon. “Global demand for catering disposables will be strongly supported by the growing delivery orders” The study shows, “And the trend is likely to continue after the pandemic. Many consumers will even go on maintaining their social distance after the lockdown been relieved.

The Plastic Film Market is Rosy

With people’s growing awareness of packing safety, plastic film is becoming more and more popular. According to statistics, more than 60% of Telescopic Film are used to store, bind and transport commodities in increased demand, including sanitary products, medical devices and medicines.



As the logistics industry  turns back, Telescopic Film has been widely used in packing of online orders that have been increased under the lockdown imposed. It is also widely used for groceries, including meats, cheese, dairy products, bottled water, frozen foods and vegetables.

Polyethylene is one of the best-selling plastics, according to a market study released recently, the consumption of Polyethylene continues to increase despite all the environmental discussions.

Protective Clothing made from Recycled Beverage Bottles

At a large textile processing factory in Fujian Province, workers make a protective suit by using 26 recycled beverage bottles. After 10 procedures including crushing and cleaning, deep separation and quality and safety inspection, the waste beverages can be recycled into qualified fabrics for protective clothing.



This technology greatly meets the demand of medical protective even it does not reach the specific level. This protective clothing can be used at all kinds of epidemic prevention inspection checkpoints, enterprises, large public places and others. It can also be used for cleaning staff who work in pharmacy, registration room and community hospital for general prevention.

This practice gives us a new way of thinking of the renewable resource utilization industry, and is also a new attempt for the production of protective clothing.

Conclusion

In some words, the rubber and plastics industry leads to a Renaissance under the pandemic. As all industries resumed production gradually, we should consider sustainable development and move forward. Plastics has been an indispensable part of life, and it will be a trend to make plastics greener, more eco-friendly and more convenient for recycling.
