Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Grade (Textile, Bottle, Film), By End-Use Industry (Packaging, Textiles, Automotive, Electrical and electronics) and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101743 | Status : Ongoing



The global polyethylene terephthalate (pet) market size expected to grow at significant CAGR by 2026. Polyethylene terephthalate commonly abbreviated as PET is the most common thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family, which is colourless, flexible, lightweight and transparent in its natural state. PET is popular material of choice in textile, packaging and electronics industry owing to its versatile characteristics and recyclability. Its polymer chains break down easily at low temperature, resulting in minimum degradation of polymer chain during the recycling process. It is also used in fibres for clothing, containers for liquids and foods, thermoforming for manufacturing, and in combination with glass fibre for engineering resins. The unique set of chemical and physical features offered by PET makes it suitable over other plastics.

On the basis of grade, global PET market can be segmented into textile grade, bottle grade and film grade. The bottle grade PET is in high demand. The key factors boosting demand for bottle grade PET are its better versatility, lower price, and physical properties. PET bottles are also recycled for various purposes, for example, they are used in solar water disinfection, industrial strapping rope, boat sails, sleeping bags and upholstery fabrics. The safety of PET’s use in food and beverage industry is recognized by health authorities around the world, which is another driving factor for the bottle-grade PET market.

Key Market Driver -

Key Market Driver – Rise in demand for bio-based plastic materials majorly from food & beverage sector.

Key Market Restraint -

Key Market Restraint – Stringent rules and regulations by governments.

On the basis of the end use industry, the global polyethylene terephthalate market can be segmented into packaging, textiles, automotive, electrical and electronic. The packaging segment is the dominant segment and will continue to grow. PET’s characteristics like chemica resistance, impact resistance and moderate rigidity makes the material suitable for packaging. The rise in consumption of  PET for manufacturing bottles or containers, used for wide range of consumable products such as soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, medicines and detergents is expected to boost the packaging industry. PET being strong yet lightweight, allows more product to be delivered with less packaging, less weight and less fuel for transport.

The key market driver for the global PET market is the increase in the demand from food and beverage sector like in carbonated drinks packaging, increased demand for packaged food due to rise in consumption of frozen and processed food, rise in demnd for electronics and automotive industries.

Key market restraint for the global polyethylene terephthalate (PET) market is stringent environmental rules and regulations by government and threats of substitutes, are acting as a barrier for polyethylene terephthalate market. In addition, fluctuating prices of raw materials (ethylene glycol) due to volatility in crude oil prices is also a restraining factor.  

Key Players Covered:

Some of the notable companies in global polyethylene terephthalate market are Indorama Ventures, DuPont, Imperial chemical industry PLC, DAK Americas, M&G Chemicals, Octal Petrochemicals, Lotte Chemcals, SABIC, Nan Ya Plastics, Rangsheng Petrochemicals, Zhengbang Fibre.

Regional Analysis:

The global polyethylene terephthalate (PET) market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The Asia- Pacific Polyethylene terephthalate market is expected to be the dominant market.China being one of the largest consumer of polyethelene terephthalate (PET) is one such contributing factor. The abundant availability of raw materials and low cost of production have been supporting the production growth of PET in the country. The Pet market for food and beverage is also being boosted in China, as people venture into ready-to-eat food and packaged food. The North American region is another leading region in PET market.
