Technavio has published a new report on the global bio-based polyethylene terephthalate (PET) market, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 68% from 2015-2019.

About the Report

The latest market research report by Technavio highlights companies like Coca-Cola that manufacture bottles from sugarcane ethanol-based Monoethylene Glycol (MEG), and petro-based Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA).

“Coca-Cola, Nike and Toyota have collaboratively formed a company named PlantBottle that manufactures bio-based PET bottle, which are the first fully-recyclable PET plastic beverage bottles made using 30% bio-based materials,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of Technavio.
