Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which finds wide applications in the food and beverages industry, is primarily manufactured from petroleum derivatives. However, the manufacturing process of PET packaging material is associated with GHG emissions and volatile prices due to its instability in prices of its raw material. These factors in turn, pose as major threats to the PET market. Manufacturers in this market are thus, shifting production to bio-based PET products, which in turn is expected to be the key challenges for petroleum-based PET.

Players in the food & beverages industry are rampantly investing in the development of environmentally friendly and bio-based packaging materials for food and beverages. For instance, in June 2012, The Coca Cola Company, Heinz & Co., Ford Motors, Nike Co., and Proctor & Gamble signed Plant PET Technology Collaborative (PTC), intended for development and use of 100% bio-based PET in their product offerings. This development in bio-based PET is expected to boost growth of the market for polyethylene terephthalate market during the forecast period.
