According to India PET & PBT Resins Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2020, the PET & PBT resins market in India is expected to surpass USD1.9 billion in 2015.

PET is predominantly used for packaging of bottled drinking water, carbonated soft drinks, edible oils, juices, alcoholic beverages, etc., while PBT is majorly used in the electrical and electronics industry. The India PET resin market is highly consolidated and dominated by three major players, Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), Dhunseri Petrochem Limited and JBF Industries Limited.

A few of the major PBT players operating in India include Toray, BASF, SABIC, SRF, DuPont and Laxness.

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is a plastic polymer produced by reacting two raw materials, Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) & Monoethylene Glycol (MEG); whereas Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) is manufactured from PTA and BDO (1, 4-butanediol). PET & PBT resins demand has been witnessing robust growth over the last five years on account of increasing usage in various end user industries such as packaging & bottling, automobile and electrical and electronics. Increased demand for PET resin is driven by replacement of traditional packaging materials like glass, aluminum, paper, metal and growth in the FMCG sector, while factors like thermal stability, high heat resistance and superior electrical properties are the reasons for increased demand for PBT resin. With the increasing government focus on domestic manufacturing with Made in India tags, the demand for PET and PBT resins is further expected to increase in India.
