Thus, the Bio-PET film market is forecast to grow owing to the shift towards environment-friendly products and applications in various end-use industries in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the bio-PET film market. The halt in film production was faced by the manufacturers. The bio-PET film is majorly used in the packaging of food and beverages, cosmetic, medical, and automotive. The packaging industry is worst hit by the pandemic. The lockdown restrictions that disturbed the supply chain and halted manufacturing have impacted the bio-based PET packaging applications. The majority share was held by food and beverage packaging applications in hotels, retails, and other areas. Moreover, a 16%-40% decline in food packaging during covid-19 was reported due to lockdown restrictions in hotels, restaurants, retails, and public space. Thereby, the demand for bioplastic food packaging was disturbed owing to pandemic restrictions, trend change, and a fall in demand. The medical industry also saw a halt in the initial phase of covid-19. A fall of 17% in 2020 was reported compared to the previous year. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the requirement of more than 89 million masks, 1.6 million goggles, and 75 million gloves was estimated. The bio-PET film has application in face shields, sanitizer bottles, supplement packages, pumps, and others. The huge gap in demand and supply chain for medical packaging, low healthcare forces, and halted production of healthcare units impacted the bio-pet film market for the short term. Thus, the bio-PET industry saw a fall, owing to a negative covid impact on the demand for bio-PET film products and applications.

Bio-PET Film Market Segment Analysis – By Raw Material

By raw material, the sugar cane holds the largest share of more than 40% in the bio-PET film market. The bio-PET is 70% terephthalic acid and almost 30% mono ethylene glycol (MEG). The bio-PET film industry makes high use of sugar cane-derived ethanol for MEG and thereby contributes to the production of a bio-PET film. According to the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA), 1,038 million tons of sugarcane was produced in Brazil, and 17.2 billion gallons of ethanol were produced. The ethanol is a used as starting form in 30% MEG for making the bio-PET. For instance, in bottle manufacture and packaging, Coca-Cola has been using Brazilian sugarcane for making the bio-PET bottles and launched its Plant Bottle. The sugar cane produced bio-PET is used in the majority of applications for fibers, biofuel, packaging, bottles, medical packages, and insulations in electronics. Sugarcane-derived ethanol is used in Thus, the sugarcane raw material for bio-based polyethylene terephthalate is gaining traction in the forecast period.

Bio-PET Film Market Segment Analysis – By Application

By application, the packaging film has the largest growth with a 30% share in 2021 and is expected to dominate the bio-PET film market size in the coming years. The demand for bio-PET packaging film for various industries such as food and beverage, automotive, cosmetic, and healthcare has increased due to the high tensile strength, chemical resistance, aroma barrier, UV resistance, and others. The bio-based PET film is used in pharmaceutical, automotive, cosmetic, and others due to UV blocking, optimized shrinkage, moisture barrier, low haze, and others. Furthermore, the films are increasingly used in FMCGs, owing to the need for protection, and flexibility. According to the Flexible Packaging Association (FPA), approximately 19% of the total $178 billion US packaging industry was held by flexible packaging. The flexible packaging film has multiple applications owing to its excellent mechanical and physical properties and thus creating a demand for the bio-PET film market.

Bio-PET Film Market Segment Analysis- By End-Use Industry

By end-use industry, the food packaging segment is expected to have the largest share of more than 35% in 2021 and is expected to dominate the bio-PET film market in the forecast period. The bio-based PET or the polyester film has excellent dimensional stability, optical clarity, moisture barrier, and tensile strength, thus offering high performance in various applications. According to the Indian Institute of Packaging (IIP), Indian packaging consumption has seen a growth of more than 200% in a decade, with an increase from 4.3 kgs per person per annum to approx. 8.7 kgs per person per annum.
