The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “PET Bottle Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, finds that the global PET bottle market reached a volume of more than 17 Million Tons in 2018, growing at a CAGR of more than 2% during 2011-2018. PET bottles are made from polyethylene terephthalate and represent the most common type of plastic bottles. They are an ideal solution for packaging processed food products and are extensively used across various industries due to their strength, light weight, non-reactivity and shatterproof nature. In addition to this, PET bottles are cheaper when compared to other packaging solutions like aluminum cans and glass bottles. Moreover, these bottles are environment-friendly as they can be recycled repeatedly which further reduces their manufacturing costs. Owing to these factors, PET bottles are increasingly being used for packing a wide range of products such as water, carbonated beverages, juices, cooking oils, shampoos and mouthwashes.
PET bottles can be easily molded into a variety of shapes which improves their appearance and utility. Increasing focus on unique packaging and different-sized packs as an important tool for brand differentiation has propelled the demand for PET bottles with customized shapes, designs and colors. Another major factor which has contributed to the sales of PET bottles is the rapid development of the FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) sector. Due to increasing disposable incomes, changing lifestyles and altering dietary patterns of consumers, the demand for several FMCG products has proliferated over the years. Further, various companies operating in the market are developing innovative methods for manufacturing PET bottles in order to increase the shelf life of the packaged products. For instance, they are improving the gas barrier property of these bottles by including thin films in their production. Looking forward, the market is anticipated to reach a volume of nearly 20 Million Tons by 2024, registering a CAGR of around 2% during 2019-2024.
