Presentation Title: The Global PET Bottle Market in 2016: Key Performances and Prospects for Growth

Presentation Description: At PETnology Europe 2016, Rosemarie Downey, Global Head of  Packaging Research at Euromonitor International, will provide those attending with Euromonitor’s most up-to-date research and view on current demand for and key trends shaping prospects for the PET bottle.

Soft drinks remains the core industry focus for the PET packaging format, accounting for 87% of global retail PET bottle sales in 2015 and, as such, is certainly instructive of this packaging’s fortunes. Ranked the number one pack of choice in the soft drinks industry with retail sales exceeding 400 billion units in 2015, the PET bottle accounted for 57% of all soft drink packaging sales.  Global PET bottle volumes within soft drinks are expected to increase by 3% in 2016.  Euromonitor will focus on key opportunities for PET within the key soft drinks arena alongside other development areas to consider for PET.
