Recycled PET market is growing rapidly as more companies and governments are recognizing the benefits of using this sustainable material. RPET can be used in a wide variety of applications, including food & beverage bottles, textile fiber, and strapping. RPET is made from post-consumer plastics that have been collected and recycled. This helps to reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills and oceans. It also reduces the need for new raw materials, which can be harmful to the environment. The increasing trend in terms of implementation of legislative regulations, collection, recovery of PET, domestic recycling, and export of PET has been witnessed in recycled PET market. These activities have contributed significantly to the growth in demand for RPET in various applications such as food & beverage bottles, textile fiber, and strapping.

Asia Pacific to Dominate Recycled PET Market

The Asia-Pacific region has become one of the largest producers of plastic waste because of the rapid industrialization and urbanization. To reduce this waste issue, countries like India and China have introduced a Plastic Waste Management Market (PWMM) Program which encourages people to buy products made with RPET. For Instance, Indian Government also mandated that manufacturers must use 25% recycled content by 2017, increasing to 40% by 2022. This move will not only significantly increase demand for RPET but will also create job opportunities in the recycling sector.

Asia-Pacific recycled PET market will account for more than 46% of global PET demand by 2025. This is largely due to the increase in demand from China and India. The two countries are expected to account for over 60% of the region's RPET demand by 2021. This is good news for the recycling industry as it will help reduce the amount of plastic waste going into landfills and oceans. The growth of the recycling industry is also helping to create jobs and boost economies. In India, for example, there are now over 1,000 recycling companies employing more than 100,000 people. These companies are helping to turn recycled plastic into new products, such as clothing, furniture, and building materials.

Recycled PET Marker Driver: Increasing Awareness Among Consumers and Manufactures

The recycling of PET has been gaining ground in recent years, as consumers and companies alike have become more environmentally conscious. This is evident by the rising number of recycled PET products hitting store shelves. A growing number of beverage brands are now using recycled PET to make their bottles. For example, Coca-Cola announced earlier this year that it plans to use 50% recycled content in all its PET bottles by 2025. Similarly, PepsiCo says it will reach 25% recycled content in all its PET bottles by 2025.

There are numerous reasons for this trend in the global recycled PET market. For one, recycled PET is a sustainable resource that can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. What's more, using recycled PET helps conserve energy and natural resources. It also reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. In addition to beverage brands, a number of other companies are also using recycled PET in their products. For example, Adidas announced last year that it will use recycled PET in all its sportswear products by 2024. Nike has also pledged to use more recycled materials in its products.

Widening Application Area to Boost Growth of Recycled PET Market

Reducing the environmental impact of plastic packaging is an increasingly important goal for both manufacturers and consumers. The circular economy, where materials are used over and over again, minimizes waste production while ensuring that products are made to last. One way to do this is through recycling. Adding recycled content into virgin plastics makes them stronger, more durable and less likely to end up in landfills or oceans. And because plastic has a long history of being one of the world’s most versatile materials, it would seem intuitive that recycling could be an effective way to tackle these issues.

There are often discrepancies between local programs and global averages. Clear information about which plastics can be collected for recycling and how that impacts the environment is necessary if we want to see more widespread uptake of this practice at an industrial scale. Despite these challenges, plastic recycling is becoming more common. In some cases, it’s even being used to create new products. PET, or polyethylene terephthalate, is a type of plastic made from recycled materials that has been increasingly used in the production of beverage containers and packaging.

Key Challenges in Recycled PET Market

As recycled PET becomes more popular, manufacturers and consumers alike face new challenges. The biggest challenge is making sure that the recycled PET is clean and free of contaminants. Another challenge is ensuring that the recycled PET meets the same quality standards as virgin PET.

Recycled PET market is witnessing a significant growth momentum as the product can be used to make a variety of products, including beverage bottles, food containers, and automotive parts. It can also be used to make new PET bottles, which are indistinguishable from those made with virginPET. However, recycled PET tends to be less rigid than virginPET, so it is not suitable for all applications. Moreover, manufacturers also have to take into account the environmental impact of using recycledPET. Recycling plastic requires energy and emits greenhouse gases, so it is not necessarily the most sustainable choice. Recycled PET has some downsides, so it may not be appropriate for all products. But many manufacturers see it as an improvement over virginPET—and a step in the right direction toward more sustainable manufacturing practices.

Key Players

Some of the prominent players in the global recycled PET market are Alpek (Mexico), Plastipak Holdings Inc (US), Indorama Ventures Public Limited (Thailand), Far Eastern New Century Corporation (Taiwan), and Biffa (UK).
