Stay Ahead in the game! Attend JPET and follow Japan's Fast Moving PET, Packaging, Polyester, Recycling market and innovative technologies!

Japan is a highly sophisticated and vibrant market with many challenges for the PET industry. It is the role model for emerging South East Asian markets who look to the country for new changes and new PET packaging developments.


The Japan Packaging Institute reported that of all the different packaging formats, PET recorded the strongest and fastest rebound in 2012 at 610,000 tons in the aftermath of the 2011 Tsunami. Japanese PET packaging sector has shown significant growth due to the aggressive light weighting of containers to the point where today's bottles and containers are 15% to 32% lighter than they were in 1999. This means that not only has industry been shipping increased volumes, but has also massively increased the actual quantity of PET containers it has been putting on the market.


Apart from carbonated soft drinks sector which accounts for the leading PET market share, shampoos and detergents shows a trend of increasingly shifting away from rigid HDPE and flexible pouches to PET packaging solutions. Also a growing application is in packaging of wines and sake as demand for high barrier PET resins also increases.


For PET resin suppliers, it is crucial to learn about the market demands and what specialty resins are needed in a culture where vending-machines are an integral part of the food and beverage supply chain.


Machinery makers are constantly developing customized solutions to meet individual customer demands. Japanese customers want energy-saving machines, to help their bottom line as well as the environment.


Social and environmental changes also have a big impact on the industry and that's a major reason molders in Japan invests in high-level machines as consumers get more solid information about the impact of their consumption.

Major companies driving this growth is no other than Suntory and Kirin - both leading integrated beverages companies with global presence.


In 2015, Suntory Beverages and Food Ltd, a main player in the Suntory Group, remains committed to actively reducing its environmental impact by reducing the amount of CO2 emissions along the value chain, creating lighter-weight PET bottles and extremely thin labels, and reducing power consumption by vending machines.


The company aims to further strengthen measures to offer small-size format products, including 500ml PET bottles in view of the change in soft drink patterns.

In February 2014, Kirin Beverage introduced the R100 PET bottle made of 100%-recycled PET materials for its Kirin Gogo-no-Kocha Oishii Sugar-Free.


Kirin Beverage has been pursuing bottle-to-bottle recycling using mechanically-recycled PET materials to make new PET bottles since 2012.


In the recycling of PET bottles to Polyester, Teijin Frontiers - from Teijin Group, a Japanese technological innovation company, has developed a method of recycling polyester products. Using the chemical recycling method, Teijin has been able to technically solve the issue of contaminants in bottles and allow the recycled fibre to be recycled multiple times without deterioration of quality.


CMT is pleased to bring together the international PET players and Japanese companies who are involved in PET packaging to discuss and share new ideas in this fast moving market.

Agenda in Japanese

日本は PET 産業にとって非常に高度かつ活気あふれる市場であり、乗り越えるべき多くの課題を与えてくれます。また、新たに PET 包装を導入し変化を遂げようとする東南アジアの市場が模範例として位置づける国でもあります。


日本包装技術協会によると、ありとあらゆる種類の包装材の中で2011年の津波のダメージ後に最も力強く急速に市場に戻ってきたのは PET であり、2012年には61万トンを記録しています。日本における PET パッケージ業界は、容器の軽量化を追求し続けた結果、著しい成長を遂げました。今日におけるボトルや容器は1999年のものに比べて15%から32%も軽くなっています。つまり業界は PET の配送量を増やしたのみならず、実際に市場に出回っているPET 容器の量を大幅に増やしてきたことになります。


PET 市場で最大シェアを占める炭酸飲料 以外にも、シャンプーや洗剤などが従来の固い HDPE 容器や柔軟性のあるパウチから PET パッケージに移行する傾向が強まってきています。また、高バリア PET 樹脂の需要が増えるに従い、ワインや酒用のパッケージとしての使用も増えてきています。


PET 樹脂の供給事業者は、市場需要を知り、自動販売機が飲食物供給システムの主流となっている現代社会でどのような特徴の樹脂が必要とされるかを知っておかなければなりません。






サントリー・グループの主要事業であるサントリー・ビバレッジ・アンド・フードは、2015年も引き続き二酸化炭素排出の削減によって環境に与えるダメージを軽減する方針を維持します。軽量化された PET ボトルや極薄ラベルの作成により、自動販売機のエネルギー消費を抑えることもできます。


また、同社は500mlの PET ボトル導入によって今までの清涼飲料のイメージを変えるなど、小サイズ製品に更に力を入れていきます。


2014年2月、キリンビバレッジは同社製品「午後の紅茶 おいしい無糖」に100%再生 PET 材を使用した R100 PET ボトルを導入しました。

また同社は2012年より、機械的に再生された PET 材を使って新しい PET ボトルを作るボトル・ツー・ボトルのリサイクル法を取っています。


日本の技術イノベーション企業である帝人グループの帝人フロンティアは、PET ボトルをポリエステルに再生することで新たな再生ポリエステル製品の製造法を生み出しました。化学再生法を駆使して、帝人はボトルに含まれていた汚染物質の問題を解決し、品質を低下することなく再生繊維を何度も繰り返して使用することを可能にしました。


世界における PET 関与企業と PET 包装に携わる日本の企業に集まっていただき、急速に成長するこの市場での画期的なアイディアを共有し話し合う場をご準備いたしますことで、CMT は皆様に貢献できるのではないかと思っています。

Rise in ‘Konbini’ convenience stores drives demand for smaller, taller packs in Japan

Posted on : 23 Mar, 2015


Japan, the second largest retail market in the world, is witnessing a rise in 'konbini' convenience stores. This is a significant change in the evolving retail landscape in the country where large departmental stores were more popular until recently.


Consumers are said to have moved away from weekly shopping trips and prefer konbinis.


In fact the number of konbini convenience stores have increased over the last few year - 48,139 in 2012, with another 3,700 stores opened by 2013, increasing the total number of 'konbini's' to 56,820.


This trend has a ripple effect on the packaging industry in the country. There is a need for dramatic change to the formats, portion sizes of packaging to suit the small size of konbinis - which roughly have an average floor area of less than 100m².


Further the packaging industry need to adopt technologies such as lightweighting and downsizing its products too.


The limited shelfspace in konbini convenience stores will lead to more limited linear, or horizontal, product display space. Thus, packaging has to be typically taller but with a narrower footprint.


More interesting and innovative trends from Japan's packaging industry will be under the spotlight at CMT's inaugural JPET (Japan PET Resin Trade, Fibers, Apps & Recycling/RPET) on 20-21 April, 2015 at the Hilton Tokyo.

BERICAPValve on French Honey

Posted on : 11 Mar, 2015



BericapValve dosing valve made of TPE
It is now more than two year since BERICAP first launched the 'BERICAPValve' dosing valve on the market.



Several squeezable valves are now used for squeezable food products, most of them made of silicone. The BERICAPValve is different because it is made of TPE, which has the advantage, that - unlike the commercial silicone valves - it prevents contamination in the recycling process.

BERICAP's bi-injected dosing valve closures offer a perfect product security and support controlled dosing of products such as honey.

Honey is traditionally packed in glass jars closed with aluminium twist-off closures as well as in squeezable PET bottles using FlipTop closures with silicone valves. Now it seems that French honey bottlers are showing considerable interest in the TPE valve. The reason is twofold: it is easy to recycle without contaminating the recycling stream and, in addition, the taxes payable for a TPE valve are lower than those for a silicone valve.

The BERICAPValve is available in various shore hardness and cut lengths in order to suit various products other than honey, such as ketchup, chocolate syrup, body lotion and pharmaceutical products, all having individual viscosities. Even products containing pieces, such as cocktail sauces, are easy to dose with the BERICAPValve.

BERICAP offers a wide range of hinged closures in which the bi-injected BERICAPValve can be inserted. Customised designs can, of course, be developed in the BERICAP R&D centres.

StackCap from Bericap – 2nd use for beverage caps

Posted on : 21 Jan, 2015




It may now be common practice in many countries around the world to recycle closures, but it may be even better to use closures for a second time, especially if this can be connected with specific marketing campaigns. A second use concept is ecologically sound, socially of interest and economically justifiable.

StackCap is based on a concept developed by Smooth HIP Ltd and has been enhanced to a high-performance beverage cap by Bericap. StackCap meets the current trend towards the 2nd use of caps and closures. They are used first to cap still or carbonated beverages and subsequently to build toys or other artistic shapes.

StackCaps can be stacked on top of each other or be assembled side by side by means of grooves. This allows 3-dimensional structured toys such as cars, trucks, planes or houses to be built. When combined with the empty PET bottle, toy rockets, space ships, swimming platforms, towers or poles for street games can be constructed. The secondary use of packaging thus also has an educational value in developing hand-to-eye coordination.

StackCap can be used for promotions or to distinguish children packs on the shelf. The closure can be used for contests or to create community and can serve as a brand ambassador in the consumer's possession.

StackCap is currently available for the neck finish PCO 1881. StackCap adds only a little additional weight compared with the standard flat cap.

StackCap can be applied on a standard capper, but then requires a distinct chuck.
