Bio-Based PET Market Overview

Bio-Based PET Market is expected to reach CAGR 15.23% during the forecast 2021-2030.

A bio-based PET is produced from ethylene glycol obtained from plant sources such as sugar, molasses, and corn, containing 25%-30% of mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) and terephthalic acid. Bio-based PET exhibits properties such as recyclability, non-toxicity, reduced carbon footprint, and high resistance to shatter.


The global bio-based PET market is majorly driven by the increasing adaption of green, safe, and bio-based products to protect the environment and human health. The fluctuating cost of the petroleum-based and related products is another major driver of the global market. The hazardous nature of conventional plastics and favoring government regulations are some other factors driving the global bio-based PET market. Moreover, the rising demand for eco-friendly packaging in various end-use industries such as food & beverage, automotive, electrical & electronics, consumer appliances, and others are the major market growth drivers. The technology development such as Plant PET Technology Collaborative (PTC) to produce 100% bio-based PET by Virent, Inc in 2015, which produces paraxylene using beet sugar instead of fossil fuels. Paraxylene is the key raw material used to product purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) feedstock, which account for the other 70% of bottle-grade PET.  Furthermore, a prototype of first 100% PET bottle was shown by Coca-Cola Co. in September 2015 at World Expo in Milan. Stringent regulations on the usage of synthetic based polymer to reduce the greenhouse gas emission have augmented the market growth.

For instance, Australia, Canada, and Japan implemented the Kyoto Protocol, and the U.S. and Canada has approved the Montreal Protocol, which restricts the use of synthetic polyethylene terephthalate. However, the irregularity in the supply of feedstock and the limited land for cultivation of sugarcane and corn may challenge the market growth during the review period. Nevertheless, the favoring government schemes and policies such as Innovating for Sustainable Growth: a Bio-economy For Europe and USDA Biopreferred Program are further driving the market growth. European Bioplastics (EUBP), the Berlin-based association representing the bioplastics industry in Europe, stated that it welcomes the positive outcome and support the use of bio-based materials for packaging and improving market conditions for such materials and products in 2017.
