GCC PET Packaging Market Overview:

The GCC PET packaging market was worth US$ XX Billion in 2022, expanding at a CAGR of X% during 2017-2022. Looking forward, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around X% during 2023-2028, reaching a value of US$ XX Billion by 2028. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a clear, strong, lightweight plastic widely used in the packaging industry. It has high strength and rigidity and is resistant to extreme pressure and shattering. It also demonstrates low sliding friction and moisture absorption, and good chemical resistance against acids. It is widely employed in rigid and flexible packaging due to its high dimensional stability and resistance to solvents, alcohols, dilute alkalis and halogenated hydrocarbons. Besides this, it is used in manufacturing plastic bottles and jars, bags and pouches, trays, lids, and closures. At present, it finds extensive applications in packaging pharmaceutical and personal care products in the GCC region.

The growing working population and hectic and fast-paced schedules of individuals in the GCC region are catalyzing the demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) and processed food products, which represent one of the key factors positively influencing the market. This, in confluence with the exponential rise in the food and beverage (F&B) industry, along with the emerging trend of online food ordering, is increasing the sales of packed edibles in the GCC region. In line with this, a significant surge in the adoption of PET bottles in the packaging of water, soft drinks, and other consumable liquids on account of their non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, and biocompatible properties is bolstering the market growth. Moreover, rising awareness about the benefits of using environment-friendly packaging solutions is encouraging key manufacturers to employ recyclable PET packaging materials. Furthermore, the manufacturing process of PET does not incorporate the use of any heavy metals and harmful chemicals such as bisphenol A (BPA) and Di(2-ethylehexyl) phthalate (DHEP), which is creating a positive market outlook. Besides this, the flexible and cost-effective nature of PET is catalyzing its demand over glass and metal counterparts. Furthermore, the increasing utilization of PET in the cosmetic industry for the packaging of personal care products due to the need for asymmetrical packaging with sharp angles and high customization of logos is driving the market.
