Market Overview

Global rPET Packaging Market: An Overview

Recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) refers to the packaging formats which are made from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET). rPET packaging is expected to gain traction due to increasing efforts to use recycled plastic packaging solutions, across the globe. One of the key factors for more companies moving towards rPET packaging solutions is retention of strength of quality of rPET. rPET packaging provides the same strength as any other packaging solutions made from virgin PET. This gives rPET packaging significant edge over alternative solutions. The increasing adoption of rPET packaging reduces dependency on using petroleum as a raw material and helps divert plastic from landfills. The rPET packaging market is witnessing a good scale of innovation with key focus on consumer convenience and reducing carbon footprint. The key hurdle to the growth of the rPET packaging market is the dominance of virgin plastic in the market. However, with governments of both developed and developing countries making persistent efforts to encourage plastic recycling, that may soon change. The outlook for growth of the global rPET packaging market is expected to be largely positive during the forecast period.

Global rPET Packaging Market: Dynamics

The global rPET packaging market is expected to grow on the backdrop of the ongoing shift towards recyclable plastic packaging and other environment-friendly solutions. There have been several instances where local supermarket chains have vowed to use rPET packaging for several items sold in their stores. Manufacturers have been modifying their production facilities to enhance their cleaning and PET waste purifying capabilities to produce rPET rollstock. This is converted into rPET packaging formats further down the value chain. Generally, rPET packaging is composed of more than 30% recycled post-consumer waste material, and is an ideal solution for any company looking to go eco-friendly. Also strengthening the chances of increased adoption of rPET packaging is the high printability of rPET. A variety of printing techniques can be used for high-quality printing on rPET Packaging. rPET packaging is expected to gain more traction as the plastic packaging market comes under more scrutiny. Furthermore, emerging packaging technologies such as modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) require excellent barrier properties which help prevent gas ingress and egress. Here, rPET packaging has an advantage over alternative packaging solutions such as polypropylene and high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) as rPET is superior.

Global rPET Packaging Market: Regional Outlook

The Asia Pacific region is expected to emerge as the leading contributor to the growth of the global rPET packaging market during the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing population of environment-conscious consumers in countries such as China, India, and those in the ASEAN region. rPET packaging market in North America and Europe currently spearhead the growth of the global rPET packaging market, with the shift towards recycled plastic packaging happening on a much larger scale in those regions. Germany is anticipated to play the leading role in growth of the Western Europe rPET packaging market. The U.S. rPET packaging market accounts for the lion’s share of the North America rPET packaging market. The MEA region has witnessed efforts by governments to adopt eco-friendly packaging solutions. For instance, the governments of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have declared that all the plastic, whether manufactured locally, or imported, must exclusively be oxo-biodegradable. Therefore, the rPET packaging market in MEA region is poised to witness moderate growth during the forecast period.
