Updated to Q3 2020
Both colourless and mixed coloured post-consumer bottles were over-supplied due to weaker downstream flake demand. Flake availability was ample because of substitution back to virgin PET, particularly in the sheet sector. Food-grade pellets remain structurally short.
Demand for both colourless and mixed coloured post-consumer bottles and flakes was weak throughout Q3, mainly as a result of substation back to cheaper virgin PET in the sheet and film sector. Drops in demand from the automotive and construction sector impacted mixed coloured flake sales. Many flake producers extended summer shutdowns because of the poor flake demand. Food-grade pellet demand remained consistent because of the lack of material in the market.

Recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) can be used to make many products including fibre for polyester carpet; fabrics for T-shirts, long underwear, athletic shoes, luggage, upholstery and sweaters
Recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) can be used to make many products including fibre for polyester carpet; fabrics for T-shirts, long underwear, athletic shoes, luggage, upholstery and sweaters; fiberfill for sleeping bags and winter coats; industrial strapping, sheet and film; automotive parts, such as luggage racks, headliners, fuse boxes, bumpers, grilles and door panels; as well as new PET containers for both food and non-food products.
RPET has been largely consumed by the fibre industry as it is sensitive to thermal degradation as well as degradation from contaminants such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
Degraded RPET is not suitable for bottle to bottle, strapping and sheet extrusion applications which demand high quality RPET in order retain the PET properties of stability and pressure-resistance.
The level of recycling and availability of RPET differs greatly by country. In Europe, Germany leads the pack and recycles around 50% of its PET. Other countries such as France, UK, Belgium, Netherlands and Italy have also been active in recycling.
