Further, growing prevalence of packaged food products is influencing manufacturers to allocate their resources in the food industry, which is followed by the beverage industry in terms of value creation and growth rate.

East Asia Recycled PET Market to Represent Multibillion-dollar Opportunity by 2029

Rise in the consumption of convenience foods and beverages, especially among the millennial and Gen Z cohort, would have a tangible impact on the recycled PET market across every regional segment. This trend is gaining rapid momentum in East Asia, where the market will hit the US$ 1 Bn mark by 2029. Represented by China and Japan, East Asia is expected to outpace Europe in the near term. The regional market would further be driven by top-line growth of industries – pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food & beverages.

Pharmaceutical Industry to Widen Investment Opportunities

Given their excellent resistance properties, the cosmetic industry is turning to recycled PET jars and containers for the storage and transportation of personal care products, especially in liquid and powder form.
