Factors accelerating the PET Packaging Market growth

Growing demand for environment friendly packaging and PET's Exceptional Characteristics are boosting the expansion of the market.

  • The PET packaging market is booming due to PET's superior qualities, such as its high transparency, good stability, shiny surface, high-pressure resistance, lightweight and good barrier properties. Additionally, this substance is biologically inert, does not react with food or drink, and is immune to microbial attack. Furthermore, the FDA, Health Canada, the European Food Safety Authority, and other health-safety agencies have thoroughly reviewed and approved it for contact with foods and beverages.

  • Increasing demand for environmentally friendly packaging solutions is boosting market expansion. As per Bleher Folientechnik, PET saves 60% of the energy required for the production of new plastics. Additionally, it is recyclable because its polymer chains degrade at a low temperature, resulting in little degradation of the polymer chains during recycling. The Food Packaging Forum Foundation estimates that 822,363 tons of PET bottles are collected for recycling in the United States each year.
