PET Outlook Asia

24-25 Apr, 2013 - Jakarta, INDONESIA

Le Meridien Jakarta

"Indonesia's Accelerating PET Conversion as the Preferred Packaging"

"Asia: Looking Inwards for Opportunities Amid Global Volatility"

As PET capacities increases worldwide from the Middle East to the Americas, Asia is seeing a challenging time with greater margin squeeze and changing dynamics of PET trade. In spite of the situation; China and the South East Asia are still the cardinal lifeline of the industry as Asian PET and feedstock prices are major drivers of the global PET markets.


Within Asia, major markets are unfolding with huge opportunities for the food and beverage packaging sectors. Indonesia, with a dense population of over 200 million is shifting to PET and seeing an increased growth in new market segments such as ready-to-drink tea and functional drinks in PET bottles. Meanwhile, Myanmar is the golden investment ground for PET converters and packaging companies as the country offers great potential for beverage manufacturing and retail. Whereas China has always been the largest and most important global PET market.


On par with market requirements and consumers' behavior, the PET industry is driven by continuous improvement in packaging technologies to meet greater sustainability and flexibility. From recycling to light-weighting to aseptic filling, the PET supply-chain has a pressing need to be abreast with the new trends in order to meet customer requirements.


PET Outlook Asia will unveil key issues facing the PET industry, from markets to technologies and give your company the arsenal to strive in a competitive business environment.

PET Packaging Making Headway in Asian Market

Posted on : 06 Feb, 2013


Brand owners and PET bottlers are riding on lower price points and consumers’ favor in affordability and convenient packaging to boost the market. This has prompted strategies that leverage on the two factors, leading to a phenomenon of downsized beverage bottles that come in 300ml bottles and at a lower unit price.


These products are much more convenient for today’s end consumers, who are often on-the-go. By the looks of the trends and consumer behavior, the PET market has much to thrive on in the coming years. 


Growth in the PET industry is not just limited to affordability and convenience. The widening of PET applications is increasing the stakes in the industry, with the entrance of functional beverages giving the PET market a boost. Milk and alcoholic beverages such as wines are forecasted to join the force in giving the market a bump, upping the market’s potential by 2016.


In response to the evolving PET industry, CMT is putting together  PET Outlook Asia summit this April to provide latest updates on market trends and growth .
