PET Resin Review 2015 and five year outlook

PET Resin Review 2015 and five year outlook

Report summary

2015 was a challenging year with crude oil price fluctuations. This has encouraged some switching to polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin as it offers price advantages compared to other polymers. However low oil prices have posed challenges to the recycled PET (RPET) industry, as reclaimers' margins have been squeezed as bale prices did not fall as quickly as virgin PET prices.

Our analysis provides detailed insight into the PET and RPET market outlook, the key issues and assumptions facing growth projections and other aspects affecting the industry over the coming five years. This report provides a five year analysis of PET resin from global and regional viewpoints including: supply/demand balances, trade flows, sustainability aspects, M&A and prices.
