“Textile Recycling to Gear Up the Sales of Recycling Machine”

Textile waste or old clothes are either disposed of or donated to needy ones. However, in the end, the clothes were either incinerated or ended up in landfills choking pipelines or polluting the environment, entering the food chain, and others.

Nowadays, with rising awareness regarding environmental safety and recycling, waste clothes are now being recycled and used for various purposes. For instance, H&M, a clothing brand had installed a clothes recycling machine that turns old cloth into yarn or thread and further knits it into a new desired piece.

It works on the instructions given to create new desired clothing from the previously fed material. This not only reduces the waste from entering landfills but also provides newly knitted cloth from the old ones maintaining a circular economy. Textile recycling is an effective and profit-oriented business, also textile is available in landfills that are to be recycled and used further.

The installation of textile recycling plants at a huge level will assist the waste management authority in effectively managing clothes. This, in turn, pullulates the market's growth over the period.

“High Cost of Recycling: A challenge to overcome”

Recycling is not a one-step process it requires a reliable workforce to collect waste, sort, sterilize, load to machine, de-load output, and send it for further processing. This all involves huge costs that lead to a lesser number of market players operating in the market.

Due to less number of people operating in the market and the waste recycling being comparatively slow as compared to the waste generation on a regular basis creates a burden on existing infrastructure and the environment as well. This can be overcome by the efforts made by both government and individuals, which in turn, bolster the market's growth in forthcoming years.

Country-wise Insights

What are the factors driving the market’s growth across Germany?

Germany is investing in R&D and technology to develop an innovative solution to recycle waste and the governing bodies focus on the development of a waste prevention plan.
