Press Release

PET Bottle Recycling Market Research Report 2019 published By Market Research Future, provides information on Global PET Bottle Recycling Industry Size, Share, Trends, Growth and Opportunity Assessment, Regional Analysis and Segmentation By Recycling Process (Chemical, Mechanical), Application (Beverages, Personal Care, Pharmaceutical, Consumer Goods, And Others), And Region – Global Forecast To 2023

The PET bottle recycling process involves several steps and is a growing activity primarily due to growing environmental concern and rising petroleum prices. The report on the global PET bottle recycling market includes vital information such as market value, growth rates, and various factors influencing the market. With 2017 as the base year, the market value was recorded at USD 4,381.3 Mn. Estimations and calculations of market growth suggest a CAGE of 5.28%, which projects an upward trend likely to result in a market value of USD 5,933.6 Mn by the end of 2023.

Plastic use has grown significantly, and PET bottles are used significantly and in high volumes in packaging applications. High volumes of plastic which are highly resistant to physical and chemical degradation have to be recycled to refrain from harming the environment. PET bottles are commonly used in beverages and other consumables packaging such as for mineral water, peanut butter, cooking oils, etc. The large scale of plastic consumption in the packaging sector is highly encouraging of PET bottle recycling so as to increase production efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of the plastics industry. Moreover, in an increasingly environmentally conscious global scenario, governments across the globe are providing support and initiatives in an effort to encourage PET bottle recycling. Non-recycled plastic has terrible effects on the soil and water, causing pollution. As a result, government bodies are targeting increasing plastic recycling. For example, the European Commission has announced a strategy to reduce plastic pollution and ensure the recyclability of all plastic in Europe by 2030. Similar initiatives by other governments are expected to encourage the growth of the global PET bottle recycling market during the review period.

The various challenges that the global PET bottle recycling market faces include a lack of cost-efficient infrastructure, lack of appropriate processing units, and a general lack of public awareness regarding recycling. At present, more plastic is disposed of than recycled which indicates a strong lack of awareness. Examples have been included in the report. Meanwhile, the market is rife with opportunity as several developments are being carried out to design recycle-friendly PET bottles to encourage PET bottle recycling. Initiatives toward increasing awareness and the active participation on the part of manufacturers to encourage recycling via redesigned PET bottles is expected to present the PET bottle recycling market with new directions for growth in the foreseeable future.

The global PET bottle recycling market’s various key components have been segmented in the report on the basis of the recycling process, application, and region. Recycling processes used for PET bottle recycling are primarily segmented into chemical and mechanical. Chemicals recycling process of PET bottle is further segmented to include hydrolysis, glycolysis, methanolysis, and other processes. Between the two key segments, the mechanical segment has captured 67.92% share of the global market and is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The mechanical process uses a simple process to collect, sort, clean and then reclaim the plastic in a new form which is then used for the manufacturing of new products.

Applications have been segmented to include personal care, pharmaceuticals, consumer goods, beverages, and others. Beverages, having the highest consumption pattern for PET bottles captured the largest share in the market and is expected to retain its dominance while growing at the highest CAGR of 5.99% during the review period due to consistent demand for PET bottles for this application.

Regional Analysis
