Estimates suggest that there are a total of 50,000 plastic manufacturing units in India and about 90 percent of these are MSMEs.
This ban on single-use plastic will impact a large number of industries including FMCG, auto, infrastructure, etc.
While there is still no clarity on which items fall under the bracket of single-use plastics, estimates indicate that they could constitute 4-7 percent of raw material used in the manufacturing process.
