Heavily Populated Countries of Asia and Europe to Drive Global PTE Market According to Merchant Research & Consulting Ltd.

Aug 1st, 2011

LONDON – Demand for Polyethylene terephthalate (PTE) today is by large part driven by the major consuming fields – carbonated soft drinks and bottled water that account together for more than 66% of PTE consumption globally. The unparalleled growth of carbonated soft drinks and bottled water industries and thus the packaging industry can be primarily attributed to the changing lifestyles of people in the developing countries.

Taking into account that India and China are heavily populated it does not come as a surprise that these economies are key regional drivers for the global polyethylene terephthalate demand. Europe ranks second in the list of PTE consumers after China. Here the largest growing market for PTE is Russia. The overall annual growth rate for the world PTE market is forecast to almost reach the level of 5% in the coming 10 years.
