Recycled polyethylene terephthalate Overview Transcript

Until 2010, the key driver for the recycled polyethylene terephthalate market, also known as RPET market, was the virgin PET price. That’s because traditionally companies purchased R-PET material as a lower cost alternative to virgin.

However, since 2010 virgin PET and recycled PET prices have decoupled. This is because of an increased focus on social corporate responsibly and carbon cost.

In the short to mid-term, sustainability targets are expected to become an increasingly significant factor in R-PET pricing, and the bottle-to-bottle market is expected to increase its share of R-PET consumption.

However, at the same time as market demand is growing, collection rates – that’s the post-consumer material that’s brought into the recycling chain- have been broadly fat, resulting in structural shortages.
