The packaging industry will become a major consumer of polyester

according to relevant statistics, at present, the cumulative capacity of pet (polyethylene terephthalate, polyester for short) devices under construction and planned in China is more than 6million tons. If all of them are put into operation, China's Polyester output will exceed 18million tons in 2008 and exceed 19million tons in 2010. At the same time, affected by the rise in the price of crude oil, the prices of its raw materials terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol have risen all the way, increasing the production costs of enterprises. Coupled with the continuous anti-dumping of foreign countries on China's polyester industry, exports have been blocked. These reasons have led to a sharp increase in domestic polyester supply, intensified market competition, and declining corporate profits. Some people pessimistically believe that the polyester industry is facing a crisis of surplus. Has the domestic polyester industry become a thing of the past? The answer of experts is: Although there will be partial surplus in the domestic polyester market, the probability of industrial oversupply is very small. Because the packaging industry will become the "major consumer" of polyester after the textile industry, the rapid development of the packaging industry in recent years will provide impetus for the sustained and rapid development of the polyester industry

beverage packaging is a "big cake"

China's beverage industry has developed rapidly in recent years, with an average annual growth rate of more than 20%. In 2004, the total output of soft drinks in China reached 29.1243 million tons, with a year-on-year increase of 22.7%. However, China's per capita beverage consumption is only 8 liters, only 1/5 of the world average level, and 1/24 of that of Western European developed countries. This means that there is still huge room for the development of China's beverage industry. Experts predict that the average annual growth rate of China's beverage industry will be more than 15% in the next 5 to 10 years

the rapid growth of the beverage industry will inevitably drive the rapid development of the beverage packaging industry. PET packaging is more and more widely used in beverage packaging because of its low price, good transparency and air tightness, high strength and easy modeling. At present, the proportion of PET materials used in the packaging of carbonated drinks, fruit juice drinks, tea drinks and bottled drinking water in the world's major beverage countries has exceeded 60%. China has also increased from 53% in 1997 to 65% in 2001, and now it reaches 70%. In addition, PET bottles have been widely used in the fields of edible oil packaging, seasoning commodity packaging, pesticide and washing household chemicals packaging in China in recent years, with an average annual growth rate of more than 20% because of their advantages such as non-toxic, tasteless, transparent, light weight, good fragrance retention, not easy to break, good oxygen barrier, and good shielding against ultraviolet rays

beer packaging is the most potential market for pet. Compared with the traditional glass bottle packaging, PET beer bottles have the advantages of light weight, easy to carry, high strength, good toughness, easy to make, not easy to break, will not explode, and save transportation costs. They are called the best beer packaging materials in the 21st century by domestic and foreign experts. However, beer is easy to be oxidized, so the requirements for oxygen barrier and sealing of packaging materials are very high. However, its huge market potential and rich investment return expectation have enabled the world's major PET container manufacturers to invest a lot of human and material resources in the Cuitingyuan vegetable market in Hefei government district in the 1990s, research and develop the processing technology and technology of PET beer bottles, and realize the large-scale production of PET beer bottles from the end of last century to the beginning of this century. In 2001, the use of PET beer bottles in the United States reached 300million. PET beer bottles in Britain, Germany and other European countries accounted for 10% of the total beer packaging. PET beer packaging in South Korea accounted for 40% of the total beer packaging last year. China's beer production has been maintained at a level of more than 23million tons/year since 2000, and more than 29.1 million tons last year. If 630ml/bottle is used, about 46 billion beer bottles will be needed. In the future, as long as 10% of beer bottles are packed with PET bottles, there will be a market demand of more than 2billion yuan. If 50% of beer bottles are packed with PET bottles, the annual consumption of PET resin will exceed 1million tons, and the market potential is very amazing

this huge potential market has been favored by domestic PET packaging enterprises. After introducing, digesting and absorbing foreign advanced injection molding equipment and technology, Zhuhai Zhongfu Co., Ltd. has been able to produce PET bottles with three-layer oxygen barrier structure, high barrier, heat resistance, pressure resistance, transparency and meeting the requirements of pasteurization process. Its 1600ml family beer bottles are very popular with consumers after they are put on the market. PET beer bottles developed by Shanghai Zijiang enterprises have passed various tests and have been recognized by domestic famous beer manufacturers. They can provide 330 ~ 640ml products

experts predict that with the breakthrough of technical problems and the optimization and improvement of process equipment, PET bottles will be widely used and grow rapidly in the field of beer packaging in China in the next 10 years

pharmaceutical packaging came from behind

pharmaceutical packaging mainly refers to the bottles, covers, boxes, films, sheets, composite paper, surgical instrument packaging bags, infusion tubes (bags) used for packaging drugs and medical devices. In previous years, PP, PE and PVC have been the third in the world. In recent two years, due to the soaring prices of PP and PE, the amount of PVC packaging began to increase. However, some characteristics of PVC itself make it impossible to completely replace PP and PE packaging. Compared with the situation of high price and tight supply of domestic PP and PE, in the past two years, domestic pet has been used to meet its own needs and even the needs of the world. For example, Wuhan century home, which covers an area of 250000 square meters, has relatively low price and sufficient supply of goods, and its packaging performance is better than PP and PE, and it is beyond the reach of PVC packaging, so it is widely used in pharmaceutical packaging. At present, although PVC packaging still accounts for a large proportion in the field of pharmaceutical packaging, the use of PVC products containing DEHA plasticizer in food and some pharmaceutical packaging has long been banned in Europe and other developed countries, which will reduce the amount of PVC in the field of packaging year by year. Instead, it must have high transparency, excellent barrier moisture-proof performance, easy coloring, non-toxic, tasteless, good UV resistance linearity, good oxygen resistance PET packaging, which is easy to recycle and reuse, makes PET packaging a latecomer
