IHS Markit Circular Plastics Service provides a comprehensive, scenario-based evaluation of how the plastics value chain is expected to transition from a linear to a circular economy.

This service helps you understand government regulations and polices, prepare a plan to mitigate risk, determine which part of your company is most vulnerable, and assess opportunities for investment.

The Circular Plastics Service will help answer the following key questions:

  • How do companies define their competitive position in a circular environment?
  • How do companies understand and sort through the complex interplay between production and recycling economics, emissions, societal needs, and resources?
  • To what degree and at what pace will post-consumer recycling infrastructure and technology scale and accelerate to meet targets?
  • What is the potential for any unintended consequences of regulations and policies along the entire value chain?
  • How will economics for circularity be developed and what role will policy play?
