The polyethylene terephthalate market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period due to the plethora of benefits polyethylene terephthalate offers. PET polymer is the most frequently used polymer in the world. It is prominently used as a fiber for clothing and also for packaging and bottling on a large scale. Growing demand for packaging food is expected to boost the polyethylene terephthalate market to a great extent. Also, a shift towards flexible packaging will likely benefit the polyethylene terephthalate market. Other advantages like cost-effectiveness, high strength and weight ratio, shatterproof, and easy recycling prove as growth generators for the polyethylene terephthalate market.

Enquiry Before Buying:

  • A niche application of PET bottles is eco-bricks. In this, PET bottles are filled with soil, fly-ash, or other material that can be used as a building material. This can replace traditional bricks. In addition, eco-bricks have a high sound reduction index and less light penetration. These eco-bricks also help to reduce strain on centralized waste management systems. Therefore, these aspects can prove to a great growth opportunity for the polyethylene terephthalate market.
  • Research and development activities are generating breakthroughs and paving way for innovations that can propel the growth rate of the polyethylene terephthalate market. For instance, a team of researchers from Tufts University and Purdue University along with the Indian Institute of Technology is in the process of transforming polyethylene terephthalate into battery components. The researchers used an ultrafast microwave irradiation process to convert polyethylene terephthalate into disodium terephthalate and use it as a battery anode material.
  • The use of polyethylene terephthalate in other applications such as 3D printing, plastic injection molding, and CNC machining may increase the growth rate of the polyethylene terephthalate market. The COVID-19 outbreak has increased the demand for injections. Therefore, this aspect can support the increase in growth rate for the polyethylene terephthalate market.
