Rosemarie Downey, Head of Packaging Research at Euromonitor International, will discuss PET bottle performance versus competing pack formats, highlighting strengths and opportunities for development and targeting. Global retail demand for PET remains strong and is set to exceed 420 billion bottles in 2013, a 4% increase on 2012 levels, with soft drinks categories and emerging
markets in Asia Pacific and Latin America both instrumental to shaping growth.
The 16th PETnology Conference brings together PET packaging and filling professionals (board members, management, R&D, marketing, production) along the packaging value chain. For many senior level executives and experts, who now attend from more than 800 international companies, the heart of the PETnology events is both their focus on market challenges and their well-structured set-up -which is evident both before and particularly during the conferences.
