Changing Landscape of the Middle East & Africa PET Industry & Impact on Regional Trade

 

PET trade flow is looking at major changes with new capacity expansions and imbalances in the supply and demand pattern. Turkey for instance will revert from a net importer to net exporter by the end of 2012 as new investments are set to make the country more self-sufficient. The build-up of new capacities in countries like Oman, Saudi Arabia and Egypt will make the Middle East a major exporter, targeting import markets such as Africa and Europe.

 

"PET producer and sheet extruder Octal Petrochemicals of Muscat, Oman, is planning an expansion costing more than $200m (€153.5m)."
Dec 2011, Plastics News

 

"In Saudi Arabia, SABIC has converted its original single line bottle grade PET and three line fibre grade facility to four bottle grade lines totalling 330 ktpa from mid 2009. SABIC has also announced a further 420 ktpa plant (Uhde Inventa-Fischer technology) which could be on-stream by 2013." Gulf Petrochemicals & Chemicals Association

 

"Indorama is moving into Africa with plans for a 75,000 tonnes of solid state polymerisation PET plant at Port Harcourt in Nigeria due to start operating in the last quarter of 2011." May 2011, BPR News


Demand is looking strong for bottle-grade PET. However, PET as substitute for cotton and high feedstock costs will be a perennial challenge for the PET industry and some of the main drivers of PET pricing. Keeping abreast with technology innovations for preform and bottle production to meet customers' acceptance and sustainability concerns are also pivotal for the sector to remain competitive.

 

CMT's 13th MEAPET is the platform for the entire supply chain of the PET sector to obtain latest market insights and technology trends.

 

Highlights:

  • Trends in PET pricing and prospects for the Middle East & Africa region
  • New PET projects in Turkey and how will the sector evolve in the near future

  • Perspectives from Brand Owners on PET bottling trends and challenges
  • Trends in PET folio for food & non-food applications
  • Market outlook of recycled PET as a commodity resin?

Posted on : 01 Dec, 2011

 

Octal Petrochemicals in Oman, a global leader in production of packaging material has plans to invest $200m for the development of two PET production sites in 10 hectares at Salalah Free Zone . The facility will start production from May 2012, which will add an additional 527,000 tons of PET bottle grade resin to reach 927,000 tons. The manufacturing plant will comprise of two production lines with a capacity of 750 metric tons per day.

 

OCTAL's Chairman Sheikh Saad Suhail Bahwan said that additional volumes of resin production will spur the growth of the packaging industry and will encourage markets to migrate from less efficient materials to PET as the preferred clear rigid polymer. This plastic packaging venture will establish OCTAL as a recognized leader in PET and the industry and will place Oman on the world map as a manufacturing and distribution haven. He commented that in less than two decades, global PET bottle sales have dramatically increased from one million tons to more than fifteen million tons. The company aims to meet the increasing demand of PET packaging solutions in European, American and Asian markets and has established a foothold in the lucrative plastic packaging market.

Turkey to flip from PET importer to exporter

Posted on : 15 Nov, 2011

 

A new PET plant was announced end of October 2011, by Koksan PET and Plastic Packaging Industry (KOKSAN) with two planned PET lines with the combined capacity of 432,000 ns/year that will boost its own PET preform exports to 200,000 tons/year .The plant is located in Gaziantep and is anticipated to be ready in the third quarter of 2012 . The growing domestic consumption has limited Turkey’s export availability.  However the widespread investments that are underway will make the region a significant net exporter. The strong demand growth is supplemented by robust export markets. The company is said to meet Turkey’s entire water bottle chips and film sector chips demand through the new plant and plans to supply PET chips to the polyester synthetic yarn industry.

 

With a new investment in PET planned in Turkey, the country is set for major changes in its trade flow. CMT is pleased to be hosting its 13th MEAPET (Middle East/Africa PET ) to be held on 07-08 Mar, 2012 in Istanbul , Turkey! The conference focuses on insights into the beverage and food packaging markets & trends, Turkish resin producer's perspective on new capacities & trade dynamics, regional market outlook in countries like North Africa, East Africa & GCC and more.
