Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


The recycled polyethylene terephthalate market inclined in the Asia Pacific region as it was supported by the high demand from the downstream industries and low availability of the product in the market. The surge in sales of the food and beverage industries and the growing interest of consumers in the sustainable option fueled the rise in the prices. As a result, the spot prices in China increased significantly from around 985 USD/MT in January to 1130 USD/MT in June’23, registering a rise of almost 12%.


In Europe, the price trend of recycled polyethylene terephthalate was stable throughout the first two quarters of 2023. The trend was majorly influenced by the stable demand-supply ratio and sustained demand from the FMCG sectors. The cost of production was also stagnant, and thus, the supply of recycled polyethylene terephthalate in the region maintained its required pace.

North America

The North American region witnessed a stagnant trend in the prices of recycled polyethylene terephthalate as the demand from the end-user sector and supply from the manufacturers equalized each other. In addition to this, there were no major changes in the market dynamics, and the performance of the packaging sector was also moderate in the first two quarters of 2023.
