Bio-based PET Market Research, 2031

The global bio-based PET market size was valued at $441.3 million in 2021, and bio-based PET industry is projected to reach $941.4 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2022 to 2031.

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bio-based is made up of biodegradable materials including mono ethylene glycol (MEG) and terephthalic acid (PTA). It is used in a variety of products, such as construction materials, automobile interiors, bottle manufacture, and packaged goods. The benefits of bio-based PET include non-toxicity, recycling, and a smaller carbon footprint. The automotive, food, and beverage sectors all utilize it extensively. Ethylene The most common thermoplastic polymer resin in the polyester family is polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which is used in textile fibers, beverage and food containers, thermoforming for manufacturing, and engineering resins when combined with glass fiber.

Bio-based PET Market

The demand for packaging in the food & beverage industries boosts the growth of the bio-based PET market. Surge in environmental deterioration concerns and the execution of strict government environmental safety legislation are some factors influencing the growth of the market. Furthermore, the market is being viewed favorably because to consumers' increased preference for eco-friendly plastic. The market for bio-based polyethylene terephthalate is anticipated to be driven by rise in costs across a number of industries, including food & beverage, as well as a strict regulatory framework to reduce carbon emissions. The cost of manufacturing bio-based materials, such biofuels and bioplastics, is intolerably high. This is a significant growth inhibitor for the bio-based PET market.

In addition, bioplastics have a longer shelf life, better permeability (important for the packaging of vegetables and fruits), and better recyclability and processability than fossil-based plastics. As a result of these benefits, demand for bioplastics in the Bio-based PET market is experiencing significant increase. However, issues about the cost in comparison to conventional items, as well as recycling, limit the expansion of the market. Compared to fossil-based plastics, bioplastics have a longer shelf life, are more breathable (essential for vegetable and fruit packaging), and are more compostable and renewable. With these advantages, the demand for bioplastics in the bio-based PET market is increasing worldwide. terephthalate around the world.

The bio-based PET market is segmented on the basis of application, end use industry, and region. Depending on application, the market is categorized into beverages, sheet & films, consumer goods, food packaging, and others. On the basis of end-use industry, the market is divided into packaging, electrical & electronics, automotive, and others. On the basis of region, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Bio-based PET Market by Application

On the basis of application, the beverages segment is projected to have the largest market share in the Bio-based PET market during the forecast period. The increase in demand from the carbonated soft drink (CSD) market is one of the key factors driving the growth of the global bio-based PET market. The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo are estimated to be the major companies in the market.

Bio-based PET Market by End Use Industry

On the basis of end use industry, the packaging segment is projected to have the largest market share in the bio-based PET market, in 2021. Furthermore, because bio-based polyethylene terephthalate is utilized in water packaging, sweet beverage packaging, fruit juice packaging, beer containers, food containers, and other applications, it is likely to maintain its dominance during the projection period. During the forecast period, all of these factors contribute to the growth of the global bio-based polyethylene terephthalate market.

The construction industry has also stimulated the growth of bio-based PET. For instance, Asphalt is widely used in road pavement construction as the binder of aggregates. However, it is well recognized that asphalt mixture or coating layer shows severe  temperature susceptibility  such as  high temperature rutting,  medium  temperature  fatigue  and  low  temperature cracking  damage. Substitutions technique for asphalt in pavements, including the hot mix and the cold mix by polymers such as PET, is put into practice for the improvement of rutting resistance, thermal cracking, fatigue damage, stripping, and temperature susceptibility.

Bio-based PET Market by Region

During the projected period, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to continue to hold the highest share of the Bio-based PET Market. During the projected period, it is also anticipated to increase at the fastest rate. Key businesses in China and India expanding their bio-derived PET production capacity is a significant factor driving market expansion in the area. Additionally, the high use of alcoholic beverages and carbonated soft drinks in the area fuels the industry. In order to grow its business, NatureWorks invested USD 600 million in Thailand to construct a biopolymer manufacturing facility in August 2021. The corporation will be able to unify its production rate and distribution route with the aid of this larger factory.

COVID-19 impact analysis on the global bio-based PET market

The rapid spread of corona virus pandemic reduced the application of any new plastic bags including biodegradable bags. Consumers are bringing their old fabric and plastic bags, and retail shops and small stores are not providing new plastic bags to prevent further spread. Prior to COVID-19 breakdown, a large number of multinationals such as Danone, Coca-Cola, and Nestlé promised to adopt biodegradable plastics under pressure from activists and consumers.

However, after COVID-19 outbreak governments across different countries made several changes in their regulations regarding disposable and single use plastics to prevent further spread of the virus. For instance, the State of Maine postponed its ban on plastic bags until January 2021; thus, negatively impacting the market growth. In addition, supply chain disruptions due to irregular transport led to increasing lead time of raw materials, such as corn starch; thus, delaying the entire product process. For instance, according to a report by business standard, the corn starch consumption has reduced by 50% from 400,000 tons to 200,000 tons. As China started production in limited capacity, the material price for biodegradable plastic is expected to increase.
