Recent Growth of Plastic Exports in India

Plastic exports from India reached $10.4 billion during the April 2023 to February 2024 financial year. At the same time, it had a 4.4% decline compared to the previous year at $10.9 billion. The decrease is attributed to factors such as lower polymer prices, slowing economic growth of developed nations, and the removal of GSP or generalised system of preferences benefits in the EU.
