ICIS Market Insight: As Europe PET prices climb, buyers consider R-PET alternatives

European polyethylene terephthalate (PET) prices have been rising in late 2016 and early 2017. Upstream price increases and a lack of competitive imports have caused PET prices to rise and this has led to some buyers reviewing their options.

Do higher PET prices make recycled polyethylene terephthalate (R-PET) an attractive alternative for buyers? Is switching from PET to R-PET a viable alternative? What impact are rising PET prices having on the R-PET market?

Download the full market insight from ICIS editors Pavle Popovic and Luke Milner who explore these issues.

Ahead of the ICIS PET Value Chain conference in Berlin, ICIS PET editor Pavle Popovic discusses ongoing trends in the European PET market with ICIS R-PET editor Luke Milner.

From rising upstream pricing to downstream buyers looking at alternatives to PET, including questions surrounding switching from PET to R-PET, Pavle and Luke run through market developments in this short video.

The ICIS PET value Chain: Utilising Greater Global Connectivity conference runs from 7-8 March 2017 in Berlin.
