Clear segment is expected to witness fastest growth

In 2022, Clear segment is expected highest growth rate during study period. Clear recycled PET flakes demand is anticipated to remain consistent over the study period due to factors such as ease of bottle-to-bottle recycling, reduced carbon footprint, and low energy usage during remanufacturing. Recycle product are more demanded in FMCG, Personal care, Pharmaceuticals and cosmetic.

Clear recycled PET flakes used in mostly food grad product that’s why Most producers prefer using clear recycled polyethylene terephthalate flakes rather than opaque or colored flakes to create containers and bottles. The one of the main reasons behind growth of clear flakes segment is, this make it simple to spot changes in items that are placed inside of bottles and containers. Also the low processing cost for clear recycle PET flakes as compare to color.

Non-food bottles & containers accounted for the largest market share in 2022

Depending on the intended usage, important benefits of recycle PET flakes, like lower manufacturing or material costs, user-friendly features like precise content dosing by pressure on flexible containers and high recycling capabilities, along with beautiful look in the finished product. Similar to the beverage industry, the transition to PET packaging for domestic items, cosmetics and personal care products, cleaning products, and chemicals.

Fiber segment is grown at fastest rate, owing to its used in manufacturing of carpets, blankets, clothing, and other textile applications. Fiber is made up of two method which are chemical and physical, chemical method product are value added.

The customer awareness and acceptance of food grad recycled Pet in Asia pacific are propel the market growth.

Europe is expected to steady revenue growth during the study period. The Europe market are boosting due to the rapid adaption of food contact recycled PET flakes material. Innovative packaging is one of the key factors for market growth of food grad material. Sometimes the cost of dumping in Europe is exceeds the cost of recycling PET to make flakes. This promotes plastic waste collection and recycling programs in Europe region.
