Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) resin demand in India stood at 812 thousand tonnes in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.75% in the forecast period. PET is a thermoplastic polymer resin, belonging to the polyester family. In India PET has become the primarily preference in the packaging sector owing to the rigidity it offers, its eco-friendly attribute and 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 aluminum and glass packaging, in 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 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.
Polyethylene Terephthalate is being manufactured in India on massive capacity by Reliance Industries followed by three other companies. Hence, 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 the 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. Sudden spike in demand for PET from food and beverages and healthcare industries has made the manufacturers to operate over 60 per cent efficiency in order to profoundly fulfill the domestic as well as international demand.
As PET is manufactured by utilizing Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG) and Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA), the production and availability of these feedstocks in the domestic market considerably affects 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 vary with regions too. In India, PET in majorly consumed in North and West region due to the presence of large number of end-user industries and a vast distribution channel.
