The Asia-Pacific region emerged as the driving factor for PET market, contributing about 38% share, of the total demand in terms of consumption. China is the leading country in terms of consumption in the Asia-Pacific region, due to the increased demand from the automotive and electrical & electronic industries.

About 72% of the PET resin demand was from the bottle application, driven by the beverage bottles for mineral water, carbonated soft drinks, ready to drink tea, and functional, dairy, and energy drinks. It is expected that light weight PET bottle trend will continue in future as it is a cost saving measure.

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) are used in an increasing number of markets – from Packaging, Automotive, Electrical & electronics, Consumer Appliances and others.


The key drivers of PET industry are population growth, rise in disposable income, urbanization in developing economies, and growing fast moving consumer goods, and restraint such as being a capital and technology intensive industry.

Demand for PET is rising with polyester and food and beverages industries determining market behavior.


The market is and will be characterized by excessive capacity bringing it to oversupply. The influence of PET performs sector is decreasing as packaging industry witnesses change to lighter-weighted bottles and carbonated drinks consumption decline (especially in North America), besides the share of recycled material application is growing
