However, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the image of plastics on its head. Plastics has proved its utility and importance in supporting lives, livelihood and lifestyle during such epidemics. Plastics consumption in Health & Hygiene, Consumer Packaging, e-commerce etc. has surged in 2020 and the trend is expected to continue during 2021.
