Global Bio-based Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Market 2015-2019

Press Release   •   Aug 09, 2015 07:15 EDT

About Bio-based Polyethylene Terephthalate
Bio-based PET is a biodegradable product made from materials such as monoethylene glycol (MEG) and terephthalic acid (PTA). About 30% of bio-based PETs are composed of monoethylene glycol (MEG), a product of sugarcane ethanol, and the rest is composed of purified terephthalic acid (PTA), a chemical-based product of crude oil. There are different types of bioplastics: polymers directly extracted from biomass and processed, polymers made from bio-based precursors (polylactic acid or PLA), and polymers made from bacteria (PHA and PHBs). They can be used to manufacture tools, bags, beds, furniture, carpets, films, bottles, cups, and other packaging materials. In landfills, they emit about 30-70% less CO2 compared to conventional plastics.
In 2014, Germany was the major contributor to the market, followed by Asia, the US, and Brazil.
The report's analysts forecast the global bio-based PET market to grow at a CAGR of 68.25% over the period 2014-2019.
