US market impact of meeting RPET sustainability goals

Report summary

Many brand owners have announced ambitious sustainability goals for the US over the next decade with recycled PET content as its main component. There is certainly concerns whether these recycled content goals are achievable. However, it is also important to understand the implications to the virgin PET resin market and its upstream aromatics raw material stream if, in fact, these goals are met by 2030. In this insight report, Wood Mackenzie Chemicals calculates the trade-off between meeting recycled PET recycled content goals and its impact on the virgin side of the PET resin market in the US, including answering the following questions: • How much lost virgin PET resin production would be lost by 2025 and 2030? • Will this change to recycled PET content impact virgin PET resin capacity? • How lost virgin PET resin production would impact the upstream PTA and PX markets. • Could this also impact both PTA and PX capacity?
