There is the growing demand for high accuracy and high uptime PET preform machines that are capable of delivering exceptional precision and repeatability in production processes.

Novel injection molding machines that require minimum maintenance are gauging high demand in the PET preform machines market. Such innovative machines are boosting the expansion of the market for PET preform machines. Thus, equipment manufacturers are increasing the availability of machines with full hydraulic configurations to bolster production outputs. These novel machines are meeting requirements for customized solutions of clients in F&B and pharmaceutical sectors.

Special Recycling Lines Eliminate Challenges Associated with Effective PET Disposal

The circular economy is growing as a buzzword in the PET preform machines market. Hence, recyclers play a major role in successfully disposing off PET products and containers. However, technical limitations such as material losses after washing and grinding of PET bottles are affecting the process of recycling activities.

Recyclers lack the equipment to process PET fines into high-quality materials, thus resulting in inferior application of recycled PET. Thus, stringent regulations pertaining to plastic are slowing down the growth of the PET preform machines market. Hence, recyclers are increasing their R&D efforts to establish advanced recycling lines that maintain the special characteristics of PET fines. For instance, Starlinger— a supplier of machinery for producing woven plastic packaging, plastic recycling, and refinement is increasing efforts to develop special recycling lines for PET fines. As such, beverage producer Vöslauer Mineralwasser in Austria is making circular economy as part of its company philosophy and is increasing efforts to utilize 100% recycled raw materials. Thus, circular innovations are boosting the growth for the market for PET preform machines.
