COVID-19 Impact

The emergence of COVID-19, which is declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, is having a noticeable impact on global economic growth. Currently the crystalline polyethylene terephthalate market has been affected due to COVID-19 pandemic where most of the industrial activity has been temporarily shut down. According to World Trade Organization (WTO), global trade volumes are projected to decline between 13-32% in 2020. The pandemic has impacted the industrial segment and majorly the food and beverage industry due to temporary shutdown. This in turn has restricted the growth in year 2020 and a few months in 2021.

Crystalline Polyethylene Terephthalate Market Segment Analysis – By Manufacturing Process

Molding process held the largest share in the crystalline polyethylene terephthalate market in 2020. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for Polyethylene terephthalate in varied applications such as making of bottles and containers, tapes, transparent films and sheets and others. The polyethylene terephthalate is produced by the polymerization of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. The terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol are the building block for it. The types of molding used are blow molding and injection molding for the transparent bottles.

Crystalline Polyethylene Terephthalate Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Packaging held the largest share in the crystalline polyethylene terephthalate Market in 2020. The crystalline polyethylene terephthalate is used in packaging because of its extreme rigidity and the capability to resist high temperature ranging from -400 F to 4000 F. It is non-toxic and very safe for the packaging of food and beverages. Polyethylene Terephthalate is an excellent water and moisture barrier material, plastic bottles made from PET are widely used for mineral water and carbonated soft drinks. Other packaging applications include rigid cosmetic jars, microwavable containers, transparent films, transparent sheets etc. The rise is mainly due to the growing demand for the smart packaging techniques worldwide. According to plastic recyclers Europe, 15 mega tons of flexible films are annually used, out of which 9 mega metric ton are the polyethylene and 2.5 are the polypropylene films.

Crystalline Polyethylene Terephthalate Market Segment Analysis – By End Use Industry

Crystalline Polyethylene Terephthalate Market Drivers

Rise in Demand for Sustainable Packaging material

Industrialization has led to the increase in demand for crystalline polyethylene terephthalate market in various industries for different purposes. The rise in demand for sustainable packaging is due to the rising demand and changing day to day need. People today are finding shortcuts for their desired needs; they want to save environment but do not want to put any extended effort. The polyethylene terephthalate can easily be recycled and is flexible. The flexible packaging accounts for 30% of the total packaging world. This is because of its increasing usage in food and medical industries.

Superior Properties of crystalline Polyethylene Terephthalate

The superior properties of crystalline polyethylene terephthalate are driving the market. The most superior one is that it can be easily recycled. In Europe, the plastic packaging recycling rate is 40%, which is highest of all. Mostly the plastic used goes into the incineration and landfills. The recyclability makes it to decrease in the pollution and accumulation in the landfills.

Crystalline Polyethylene Terephthalate Market Challenges

Fluctuation in the price of Raw material

Innovation is the key to developing new products buy the changing price of raw material is causing problem to the manufacturers. The raw material comprises of ethylene glycol, dimethyl terephthalate or terephthalic acid. The prices are dependable on the price of the crude oil and the prices change every day and in December 2020 the price per barrel was $47.92. According to Independent Commodity Intelligence Service the change in price is due to the demand in the different regions and the consumption pattern in the food packaging industry.

Threats of Substitutes

The strict regulations are being imposed in countries across the world to use renewable and biodegradable material. The new age technological materials are replacing the old traditional method of using plastics because of its harmful effects on the environment.
