Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate Market Report Overview

The Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate market also referred to as the recycled PET market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% to reach USD 11.3 billion by 2026 from 7 billion in 2019. Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is a highly recyclable plastic resin and form of polyester. It is a polymer that is created by the combination of two monomers: Modified Ethylene Glycol and Purified Terephthalic Acid. PET is frequently used to package a range of products and is prized for its strength, thermo-Stability, and transparency.

Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate Market

According to PETRA, the PET Resin Association, the U.S. Recycling Rate was about 31% in 2012, while it was 52% in the European Union. In 2016, the U.S. recycling rate had fallen below 29%. Almost 1.8 billion pounds of PET was recycled in 2015, used to make a variety of end products. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that 1% of municipal solid waste in the U.S is attributed to PET containers.

The major factor influencing plastic recycling is recycled plastics trade at a 20-40% discount as compared to the ‘virgin’ (new, oil-based) plastics, making it financially attractive to plastic converters. The higher the price of oil, the more attractive recycled plastics become. Hence, this is a major driving factor for the Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate market.

In terms of market by product color, the Clear PET segment is estimated to be the largest segment of the recycled PET market during the forecast period

Clear recycled PET accounted for the largest share of recycled polyethylene terephthalate market in 2019. This segment is expected to lead the market on account of the high usage of clear PET bottles globally.

By End Use the Fibre segment is expected to be the largest segment of the recycled PET market

The Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate market is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR. The Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate is being increasingly adopted by various organizations, owing to its flexible, smooth, scalable, and affordable characteristics.

The bottles and jars segment is also growing in the recycled PET Market, on account of growing demand from the beverage industry. Therefore beverage industry has been identified as the key end-user of recycled PET Packaging solutions, as this sector generates constant demand.

Prominent packaging manufacturers are adopting stretch blow molding technology to design and manufacture a wide variety of recycled PET packaging solutions, as this technology offers high output quantities and fine dimensional accuracies

In 2019, fiber was the largest segment of the Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate market accounting for over 40% of the market share in terms of volume. The growth in the fiber segment is largely due to increasing demand from the sectors such as FMCG, consumer goods, automobiles, clothing and accessories, textile, telecom, and home furnishing.

The Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest region in the forecast period

Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate market followed by Europe and North America. The North America region is also projected to witness a higher product demand in the coming years on account of increasing consumption in end-user industries. The demand in the Asia Pacific region is primarily driven on account of demand from end-user industries. The Asia Pacific region is growing on account of rising urbanization, rising disposable income, and government initiatives, and a rise in residential and commercial construction projects. Major manufacturers of plastic recycling are targeting South East Asia region in particular as China has banned imports of plastic waste for recycling. This has resulted in deluge of waste in South East Asian Countries. Some of the major companies operating in the plastic recycling market in South East Asia countries include IAV Global, WESPACK, SME Recycle Sdn Bhd, Thai Plastic Recycle Group Co., Ltd. among others. Key Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate markets in Asia- Pacific include China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
