Format: Online | Last Updated: Aug 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] India Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Resin market demand stood at 1.08 Million Tonnes in FY2021 and is forecast to reach 1.84 Million Tonnes by FY2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 6.12% until 2030. PET is a thermoplastic polymer resin, belonging to the polyester family. In India PET has become the primary preference in the packaging sector owing to the rigidity it offers, its eco-friendly attribute, and its recyclable nature. The demand for PET in the packaging of food and beverages witnessed a steep inclination after the sudden outbreak of Coronavirus in the final quarter of FY 20. This astonishing increase in demand is a ripple effect of the increasing awareness of hygiene, prompting an enhanced procurement of disposable and packaged items to reduce the chances of infection by any means. Moreover, the increasing preference for PET bottles over aluminium and glass packaging, in the rapidly expanding Indian pharmaceutical sector owing to its quality standard and safety is anticipated to further propel the demand for PET in the forecast period. As the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors are likely to witness a robust expansion due to the increasing requirement for equipment and medications after the Pandemic, the need for PET bottles for medical packaging is perceived to witness an incredible surge in the coming years.
As PET is manufactured by utilizing Monothylene Glycol (MEG) and Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA), the production and availability of these feedstocks in the domestic market considerably affect the production of PET. PET can also be segmented based on its type as CSD (Carbonated Soft Drinks), Water Packaging, Food Packaging, Non-Food Packaging, Sheer & RPER. The consumption of PET in the domestic market varies with regions too. In India, PET is majorly consumed in the North and West region due to the presence of a large number of end-user industries and a vast distribution channel.
The slowdown in its automotive sector, which is one of the major end-user industries of PET resin negatively affected the demand for the product in the first half of the financial year. This slowdown was further exacerbated by the Coronavirus outbreak compelling the government to impose a nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of the virus. The lockdown imposed in the final quarter of FY 20 led to a halt in production in various industries such as automotive and electronics, thereby bringing down the prices of PET at a considerable rate. Owing to the unfavourable circumstances throughout the year, prices of PET witnessed a downfall of over 10 percent in FY 20.
Polyethylene Terephthalate is being manufactured in India on massive capacity by Reliance Industries followed by three other companies. Hence, the majority of the PET demand in India is satisfied by domestic production but cheap imports from other countries have certainly caused abrupt material injury to Indian production in the last few years. However, the immense production capacity of PET in the country is also sufficient to cater to the export requirements from countries like Algeria, Bangladesh, Egypt, etc. The sudden spike in demand for PET from food and beverages and healthcare industries is anticipated to compel manufacturers to operate over 60 percent efficiently to profoundly fulfil the domestic as well as international demand.
Major companies operating in India PET Market include Reliance Industries Limited, Dhunseri Petrochem & Tea Limited, JBF Industries Limited, Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited, Toray Industries, Jiangsu Sanfangxiang Group, Eastman Chemical Company, Nan Ya Plastic Corporation, SABIC, BASF SE, Far Eastern New Century Corporation, etc.
