Recycled PET Market to Expand at 6.5% CAGR during 2019-2029

Packaging enables minimal food wastage with advanced convenience at reduced costs. The packaging industry, over the past several years, has experienced staggering growth, supported by shifts in material choice and expansion of emerging end-use sectors.

Bottles & jars hold leading revenue share

Clamshells & containers to show noteworthy CAGR

Stretch blow molding remains preferable manufacturing technology

Preference for injection molding to increase

Beverage sector accounts for higher consumption

Food industry widens growth avenues

How Growth will Unfold

Manufacturers prefer the stretch blow molding technique for developing recycled PET, owing to high output quantities and fine dimensional accuracy. As time is a paramount factor, manufacturing recycled PET products with stretch blow molding machines is performed in a single mold, thereby boosting production speed. In a similar fashion, injection molding is also witnessing traction for the development of recycled PET. Together, both these manufacturing techniques will capture over 60% of overall recycled PET market value.
