Indian plastic exporters are aggressively looking to grab China’s share in the global market. That is because developed countries have started scouting for alternative supply sources, in their bid to exit China. In fact, nations are holding Beijing responsible for unabated spread of the pandemic. Currently, India's share in the $1 trillion global plastic exports market is just 1%, while China's is as high as 10%. Some two years back, Beijing banned the import of plastic scrap, a raw material which works out much cheaper than polymer, which resulted in China’s cost of production going up. That has opened an opportunity window for India in the plastic market. Therefore, India is looking to increase global market share from 1% to 2% in the next five years. India’s plastic exports fell by 9% to $10 billion for 2019-20 as compared to $10.98 billion in the previous year due to the COVID-19 effect. Of late, Indian plastic exporters have received an upsurge in orders from the United States, Japan and European countries since the Covid-19 pandemic spread over four months ago. India has worries too. Indian plastic exporters have lost orders worth crores of rupees due to the lockdown.
