Future of Mexico's PET Packaging
– Balancing Trade, Trends & Technologies!

Translation in spanish


“As the world’s second largest consumer of PET bottles and the biggest consumer of cola products, the average Mexican citizen drinks and discards two bottles per day. That equals nearly six kilograms of PET bottles per capita annually, contributing to a yearly national total of about 750,000 tons of PET. A recent survey found that, for the typical Mexican household, sodas constitute the third largest expense, after tortillas and milk.”

Mexico is the epicenter of PET conversion boom in Latin America! Increasing demand for bottled drinks and consumerism has made Mexico a key target for the PET supply chain; from resin producers to bottlers to traders and solution providers. A country traditionally dependent on virgin resin imports, recycling is taking higher prominence as efficient post-consumer PET bottles collection rates and greater capacity to produce bottle to bottle food-grade resin drives the momentum of PET packaging in the region.


Nonetheless, Latin American region led by Mexico are still key targets for global resin producers in North America and Asia. As companies move toward sustainability, ‘green packaging’ and bio-feedstock, what’s in store for the LATAM PET markets? What are consumer preferences that’s repositioning packaging trends? How will global PET sector impact trade balances and pricing in Mexico and LATAM?
