High investments in more environmentally-friendly recycling and alternative solutions for plastics and the existing habit of using single-use plastics are challenges that hinder businesses from developing circular economy solutions and promoting sustainable growth.

With growing urbanisation and a rising middle class, the demand for plastics has grown rapidly in consumer packaging, construction, household goods, and automotive industries because of their convenience and versatility. In 2019, the plastic industry contributed about $17.5 billion to Vietnam’s economy, equivalent to 6.7 per cent of the country’s GDP.
