Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Market Resins Revolution: Market Dynamics 2023-2029
In the realm of thermoplastic polymers, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) reigns supreme, boasting a market size valued at US$ 31.16 Bn in 2022. Brace yourselves for a fascinating journey through the PET landscape as it anticipates a growth spurt of 5.4%, reaching a staggering US$ 45.03 Bn by 2029.
Unraveling the PET Tapestry
Versatility at its Core:
PET, a darling of the polyester family, takes center stage in garment fibers, fluid and meal vessels, thermoforming, and specialty resins. Whether transparent or semi-crystalline, PET’s chameleon-like nature adapts to processing and heating, making it a go-to choice in textiles and packaging. Biodegradable Plastic
Global Polymer Powerhouse:
Accounting for 20% of global polymer output, PET sits proudly as the fourth most abundant polymer globally, following polyethylene, polypropylene, and polyvinyl chloride. Its widespread use speaks volumes about its versatility and adaptability.
PET’s recyclability takes center stage as a major growth driver. Recycled PET (rPET) finds its way into various applications, from carpet fiber to clothing, furnishings, and even vehicle components.
Global giants committing to using 50% recycled material in plastic packaging fuel the demand for food-grade-certified recycled materials. Biodegradable Plastic
