Updated to Q2 2014
European recycled polyethylene terephthalate (R-PET) prices have remained flat in the second quarter of 2014, despite slight increases in feedstock costs, as relatively cheap imports of virgin polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a substitute for R-PET, have imposed a ceiling on European R-PET prices.
Prices of post-consumer bottles, the primary feedstock for the R-PET chain, increased in the second quarter, due to lower-than-expected availability. Post-consumer bottle prices rose by €10/tonne in April, by €15/tonne in May and remained unchanged in June.
Despite the higher feedstock costs, R-PET prices have been held in place by relatively cheap imports of virgin PET from Asia, as well as on the expectations of increased supply in Europe, with the commissioning of new virgin PET plants in the second half of the year.
As a result, R-PET margins are thin and costs are rising, on the back of a sustainability drive towards the use of more lightweight virgin PET bottles as well as due to the use of multi-layers and multi-colours, all of which increases processing and sorting costs whilst reducing yield.
