The effects of the conflict in Ukraine are multiple. On the economic side, rising raw prices and especially oil prices are very senstive.

An increase in raw material prices will lead to an increase in manufactured goods prices,

and so today plastic prices. If some products might see a shift towards a higher share of recycled material in the plastic production, for some application such as food packaging recycled plastic is not suitable.

Sadly, food packaging is the biggest share of plastic found in the environment.

A rise in food packaging prices would therefore be a positive evolution!

So an increase of recycled plastic in the market.
