Global Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate Market Analysis Report 2023: Clear rPET Dominates Market with Over 76% Revenue Share in 2022 - Low Energy, High Durability Drive Demand - Forecast to 2030

Dublin, Sept. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Product (Clear, Colored), By End-use (Fiber, Sheet & Film, Strapping), By Region (Asia Pacific, North America), And Segment Forecasts, 2023 - 2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) market is poised for significant growth, with an anticipated market size of USD 18.7 billion by 2030. This growth is expected to be driven by a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.3% from 2023 to 2030.

Several factors contribute to the expansion of this market. Notably, sustainability initiatives undertaken by food & beverage and packaging companies are playing a pivotal role. These efforts align with the growing global focus on achieving a circular economy. As a result, there is an increasing adoption of recycled plastics, particularly recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET), across various industries, including packaging and textiles.

Recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) finds application in the development of both colored and clear (white/non-colored) products. Clear rPET products are favored for their cost-effectiveness compared to colored rPET products. However, colored rPET products hold appeal for packaging and bottle manufacturers, as they provide brand identity and enhance product aesthetics.

Furthermore, stringent regulations against landfills in several developed nations in North America and Europe, such as Austria, Germany, France, and more, are further propelling the demand for recycled materials like rPET. Europe has a history of landfill bans, and similar measures are being planned in the UK and Australia.

End-use industries have also embraced the use of rPET in their product manufacturing processes. This strategic move helps them control raw material costs and position themselves as environmentally-friendly product developers. For instance, TotalEnergies acquired Iber Resinas SL, a plastic recycling company in Spain, to expand its presence in European markets.
