ABSTRACT
This article explains that prices for both the recycled and virgin polyethylene terephthalate (PET) markets are subject to the seasonal variations reflecting consumption of cold beverages and as a result, recycled material prices in the winter are usually high and supply low. There has been a downward price shift as a result of Chinese buyers withdrawing from the market. Recycling PET is now firmly established in Europe and how this impact the market remains to be seen.
