The global market for PET is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8 percent until 2022, according to Beroe Inc, a procurement intelligence firm. By 2022, the market for PET will be driven by end-user applications starting from the film segment (CAGR 5.5 percent), followed by the fiber segment (CAGR 4.8 percent), and lastly bottle segment (CAGR 4.30 percent).
Japan and the U.S. are the major importers of PET, followed by some European regions. Asia has fueled the global supply shortage through its capacity expansions of 1,5MMT per year and is expected to drive the PET market to grow at a CAGR of 6.71 percent until 2022. Saturated markets such as the U.S. and Europe are expected to witness a growth of nearly CAGR of 2 - 4 percent until 2022.

PET is most prominently used in fibers and the bottling industry, and fiber grade has witnessed a lower rate growth rate (less than CAGR of 2 percent) as compared to the bottling demand (CAGR 6 - 7 percent). However, the demand for bottles is not consistent throughout the year and the demand grows only during summer time.
The poor purchasing rate of PET products limits the advances made in recycling technology. PET is prized for its lightweight quality yet virgin PET is still considered the most sought after resin due to competitive pricing and recyclability. The prices of virgin PET, however, have declined due to a decline in crude prices making them more beneficial for commercial uses.
The research methodology adopted for the report included:
The contract structure in the PET market infers that the period is generally for one year. Recently, multi-year contracts are also gaining popularity among the bigger players to reduce paperwork and build long-term relationships. However, this only holds true with companies that have a strong market for forecasting techniques.
