The global amorphous PET market is projected to reach USD 36.40 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2015 to 2020. The bottles application segment is projected to hold the largest share in the global market in 2015, owing to increased demand of amorphous PET for the packaging of beverages.

The report covers the global market across major geographical regions, which include Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and RoW. The report also analyzes the global market and its trends with respect to its applications.

The growth of the packaged food industry is expected to fuel the growth of the global market in the coming years. Furthermore, the factors, such as the physical characteristics of amorphous PET including its strength and stiffness, clear appearance, lightweight, low flavor absorption, and favorable creep characteristics, along with low price, make it ideal for usage in various applications. The increased usage of amorphous PET in various applications is driving the global amorphous PET market.

The Asia-Pacific region accounts for more than one-third of the global demand for amorphous PET. The increased usage of amorphous PET for packaging applications across different industries, such as cosmetics, films/sheets, and food and beverages is expected to boost its demand in the emerging economies, such as India and China. This has made the Asia-Pacific region, a global manufacturing and commercial hub for amorphous PET, where several major companies are setting up their plants to target the high-growth segments of the region. Cheap labor and easy availability of feedstock are some of the key factors that have been attracting manufacturers to establish their manufacturing facilities in this region.

Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate (APET) Market

The key market players operating in the global amorphous PET market have adopted expansions, mergers & acquisitions, supply contracts, new product developments, and innovations as key strategies to meet the increased demand for amorphous PET as well as to penetrate into the market. Some of the major companies operational in this market are Eastman Chemical Company (U.S.), Bayer MaterialScience AG (Germany), La Seda de Barcelona (Spain), Petrotemex S.A. de C.V. (Mexico), Quadrant (Switzerland), Indorama Ventures Public Limited Company (Thailand), and DAK Americas LLC (U.S.), among others.

Fluctuating prices of raw materials is the major restraint for the global amorphous PET market. Prices of raw materials used in the manufacturing of amorphous PET are highly dependent on crude oil prices, which result in higher pressure on the amorphous PET manufacturers. Indorama Ventures is the most dominating player in the global market. It is one of the largest manufacturers of PET resins in the world. It is continuously involved in carrying out research and development activities and has adopted strategies of new products launches and expansions to strengthen its position in the market.
