Bio based Polyethylene Terephthalate Market: Introduction

Polyethylene Terephthalate is a resin, which is made by the combination of two monomers, purified terephthalic acid and modified Ethylene Glycol, to form a polymer called Polyethylene Terephthalate by esterification reaction. It is mainly used in production of synthetic fibres, bottles, etc. It is tough and temperature resistant. The main difference between PET and Bio based PET is that the former uses non-biodegradable material in formation of PET and latter uses biodegradable material for producing the resultant polymer.

Bio-based Polyethylene Terephthalate is composed of MEG, (monoethylene glycol) a product of sugarcane ethanol, and purified PTA (terephthalic acid), a chemical-based product of crude oil. Bio based polyethylene terephthalate, due to its lightweight and bio degradable nature, is used in packaging of food products, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products and edible oils. Bio based polyethylene terephthalate is also used in production of automotive interiors, bottles, construction goods, packaged goods and electronics. The increasing inclination towards the use of eco-friendly products across the globe and strict environmental regulations to promote the use of bio-friendly products in industries have resulted in increase in demand for bio based Polyethylene Terephthalate materials.

Advancement in manufacturing technology and the rate at which success is gained in Research and Development sector in Chemical and Materials domain across the major regions of Bio-based Polyethylene Terephthalate market is expected to fuel the Bio based PET consumption.

Bio based Polyethylene Terephthalate Market: Dynamics

The growth of Bio based Polyethylene Terephthalate market is expected to be geared up due to its increasing demand in various industries such as food & beverages, and stringent regulatory framework to reduce carbon emission. Accelerated with this, the government initiatives to promote the use of biodegradable products has given rise to the use of Bio based Polyethylene Terephthalate materials. Furthermore, advancement in technology & research and shifting focus towards the use of green plastics is expected to fuel the growth of Bio based Polyethylene Terephthalate market.

Chiefly due to the lightweight and biodegradable nature of Bio based Polyethylene Terephthalate, the market is expected to fuel the automotive, bottling and packaging industry. European and the U.S Commission have set norms to improve the vehicle efficiency and it is expected that Bio based Polyethylene Terephthalate market will expand as Bio based Polyethylene Terephthalate materials are of lightweight.
