The report includes a comprehensive discussion on the market, an extensive coverage on various applications, and end-uses and composition of bio- based PET. The report provides comments on both the existing market landscape and the growth prospects in the coming years.
Raw materials constitute a major part of the production cost for manufacturers. Vendors are exposed to the volatile prices and inconsistent availability of raw materials. To secure themselves from any kind of price or availability shocks, companies often tend to forge long-term sourcing agreements or venture out into acquiring captive sources of raw materials. There is also a growing trend of textile manufacturers acquiring strategic stakes in the supplier firms to have better control on quality of input materials. Coca-Cola, Nike, and Toyota have collaboratively formed a company named PlantBottle, where they manufacture bio-based PET bottles.
According to the report, strong advertising campaigns and promotional activities in the Cola sub-segment have helped this category perform better than the other categories in the segment. Pricing activity will be a key factor in the future as consumers opt for the best deals. Coca-Cola, Nike, and Toyota have collaboratively formed a company named PlantBottle that manufactures bio-based PET bottle, which is the first fully-recyclable PET plastic beverage bottle made using 30% bio-based material, which will result in a smaller carbon footprint. The global CSD bottle market is expected to grow at a significant rate during forecast period, as shown in the graph.
Further, the report states that volatility in prices of crude and petrochemical intermediaries such as PTA, which is a major raw material in the production of bio-based PET, is one of the major challenges.
