How will trade war uncertainties reign in on the region's PET & Polyester market including China's expansion plans ?

PX, PTA market in Asia is expected to see a surge in new supply, as new capacities, mostly situated in China are due to come on stream eventually reducing China’s reliance on PX imports.

However, given the uncertainties in the global macroeconomic outlook and US-China trade frictions, can China’s downstream demand absorb this additional supplies?

US unfavorable taxes on downstream products of polyester products , apparels and shoes will also weigh on buying sentiment.

With impending weak sales performance in the polyester sector this could delay start up of these new capacities.

Can Asian PET exports growth further in regionally over supplied markets?

According to market reports, Asia-Pacific region dominated the global rPET market in 2018, which accounted for more than 50% of the market share.

This trend is expected to continue as brandowners pledge the increase in usage of recycled materials in their products.

Last year, Indonesia’s leading bottles water brand Aqua under Danone revealed its first 100% rPET bottle.

Danone, is committed to ensure all its packaging will become 100% reusable, recyclable and compostable products by 2025 and, to accelerate this transition, it is taking the lead as a recycler in Indonesia  by  engaging directly with consumers to increase recycling rates, support pioneering technologies & social business programs to clean plastic waste from the environment, to make its entire package 100%.

  • Can current recycling technologies & waste collection systems in Asia meet circular economy objectives ?

A sustainable partnership for tomorrows success

Posted on : 21 Jun, 2019


Jakarta based stock company Asiaplast is operating their business in the plastics industry since 1992. Along with rising environmental awareness of the Indonesian market and visionary sustainability goals of Asiaplast, the corporation took the trendsetting decision to use post-consumer recycled PET flakes as a raw material source for its future production. This pioneering step pushed Asiaplast in a leading position in rPET sheet production in Southeast Asia.


"The potential with using post-consumer PET flakes as a raw material source is supporting Asiaplast`s philosophy in going-green in perfect way. We follow this goal in all dimensions of our business activities" says Wilson Pranoto, CEO of PT Asiaplast Industries Tbk. Due to this new focus Asiaplast was forced to find a new approach related to that business field and to decide for a very distinct technology. Besides that, complying with all relevant directives and regulations stipulated by legislation and increasing environmental awareness of consumers are of major importance for a stock company like Asiaplast.


"The state of the art technology exceeds strictest standards and regulations worldwide and allows Asiaplast to set new standards in terms of the production of sustainable rPET sheet. Starlinger viscotec provides a bulletproof concept that makes an important contribution to set highest standards within the industry," states Wilson Pranoto. In terms of 24/7 production the most relevant factors are flexibility and efficiency in order to keep costs, especially material costs at a minimum.
