Welcome to PET Value Chain: Navigating an Era of Change
The European PET industry has witnessed a turbulent few years. Since the disappearance of some major market players in 2012-13, the European production landscape is seeing signs of renewed life with new projects planned to come on-stream in the coming year. However, with increasing production of PET in Turkey, Egypt and the Middle East, and an oversupply of PX and PTA in China, the global market is likely to become flooded.
How will European producers fare in this increasingly oversaturated market? And what is the driver behind their expansion strategies?
In addition, the question of sustainability is still at the top of the agenda for many end-users. Developments in bio-PET are still posing a threat to the traditional PET industry and downstream demand for sustainable packaging continues. Are ethics the driving force behind this continued demand, or are brand-owners simply looking to meet Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) targets? And who is driving this demand, is it consumers or the brand-owners themselves?
All these questions and more will be answered at PET Value Chain: Tackling the Oversupply.
Now in its third year, this unique and commercially focused conference is fast becoming the key meeting place for the European PET industry. The 2014 event welcomed around 100 delegates representing 79 companies from 27 countries worldwide, including:
