Worldwide Polyethylene Terephthalate Market by Application, Product Type and Geography - Forecast to 2024 -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Polyethylene Terephthalate Market - Segmented by Application, Product Type, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)" report has been added to's offering.

The global Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) market is estimated to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The Bottles segment is expected to hold the largest share among all the product types in 2017. China is expected to dominate the global market in terms of demand, during the forecast period.

Environmental Benefits of Recycling PET to Propel Growth of the Market

PET is recycle-friendly as its polymer chains break down at a low temperature, resulting in minimal degradation of the polymer chain during the recycling process. This ensures PET to be recycled numerous times before it becomes unfeasible for further recycling. This feature further improves PET's sustainability for recovering and reusing resources and energy.

This loop of recycling PET bottles into food-grade containers is one of the most desirable means of extending environmental benefits and the sustainability of PET as a packaging material. In general, recycled bottles are used to make lower grade products, carpets for example. Recycling of PET would help in reducing mankind's dependence on oil & gas, reduces landfill waste and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Bottles hold the Largest Share of Product Type Segment

PET is the chosen polymer to pack a wide variety of products viz. food, beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, household chemicals, and toiletries. PET bottles are widely used as packaging materials for consumable products owing to their excellent moisture and water barrier characteristics.

PET is also used to manufacture tough, clear industrial sheet, which can be thermoformed. Owing to these excellent material properties, PET is extensively used as a packaging material for beverages and is one of the most suitable materials for the packaging of natural mineral and spring water. As a result, the use of bottles manufactured from PET has increased drastically in the recent times.

Asia-Pacific holds Majority of the Global Market

The PET market in the Asia-Pacific region is driven by the factors, such as population growth, rise in disposable income, urbanization in developing economies, and growing demand for fast moving consumer goods. China accounted for approximately 20% of the global market and the demand is expected to grow drastically during the forecast period.

In China, the bottles segment dominated the regional market with the bottled water sector being the largest consumer of PET bottles. India, Japan and South Korea are also expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
