Some PET producers have announced to invest new PET facilities. the import of low-price PET will strike the United States in 2007. It is estimated that the demand of PET in Asia will account for 29% of the global demand. As the application technology gets mature increasingly. Global Overview of PET . 2005. Indonesia and Thailand by . the excessive production capacity of will probably result in the operation rate of PET industry to be maintained at 75%-80%. Middle East and Africa will still account for about 30%. there will be a 1.25 million MTs/year increment of PET production capacity in 2005 and 500. 3 . Due to the strongly resuming demand. The growth rate of PET demand in Asia especially China is the fastest in the world. 2004. Recently the price of raw materials rose again. In 2004. decreasing import as well as few newly-built facilities. Because of the high operation rate and large price increment of the raw materials. Although the growth rate of demand is higher than that in Europe and North America. As the demand off-season comes and the price of raw materials slides down this year. and the price ever rose to USD1. the price of PET decreased USD209/MT. However. the price increment of PET in the United States was as much as USD594/MT.Executive Summary 1. According to statistics. However. Asia becomes the key region of PET demand. the import volume of PET in 2004 decreased 44% to 150. The excessive increment of PET production capacity in Asia has made PET industry in Asia and Europe hopeless to improve the profit ability. and PET producers have increased the PET price RMB88/MT since Aug. it is estimated that the import of PET in the United States will keep stable this year. that in North America will slide down from 50% in 1990 to 41%.000MTs compared to 2003. together with the antidumping tax imposed on the PET imported from India.About the Overall Market Situation of PET In 2004 the supply of PET in the United States was very tense. because on that occasion the price of the raw materials EG and PTA is predicted to drop greatly. which made the operation rate of PET facilities in North America rise from about 80% in 2003 to over 90% in 2004. the price of PET in North America goes up. that in Europe. Although the International Trade Commission of the United States decides to nullify the import tax on PET.000MTs/year in 2006. Eastman Chemical and Wellman all plan to enlarge their PET production capacity. DAKAmericas. 760/MT in Dec. For instance. PET manufacturers still can obtain profit because the cost of raw materials dropped.

At present. Since PET entered the market. which is the main reason resulting in the low operation rate and low profit ability of West Europe PET producers. 4 . Asia-Pacific will follow North America. easy to re-airproof. the press on the profit ability in European PET industry will continue to exist.4 million MTs/year. The market volume of PET bottle has occupied 70% in world bottle marketplace and 57.7 million MTs.5 million MTs. it doesn’t react with other drink and produce ill odor. with the consumption volume of 235.000MTs.000MTs. In 2002 the PET output volume in the world was 26. In future years. oolong. In developing countries. PET producers in West Europe restrict the import of PET through antidumping.8 million MTs in 2003.6% of total consumption.4 million MTs/year. and North America will become the largest market in the world with the consumption volume over 250. In past years.In 2004. At the present the PET has been applied in drink. and the global consumption of PET bottles arrived at 6. which will reach 4. The operation rate will be as low as 60%. It is estimated that fibre-grade PET will only account for about 30% of global PET output in 2015. About PET Product During 1994 to 1999 the production volume of fibre PET in the world had increased at an appropriate speed. If new PET facilities are put into production on schedule. black tea. 54. In 2002. especially in Asian countries the growth of PET polyester and its raw materials was remarkable. the product is used for many fields for its excellent properties such as light weight. transparency. The proportion of fibre-grade PET will drop in future years. but the large quantity of PET export has made producers in West Europe lost its traditional former Soviet Union and Middle Europe market. It is predicted that the global PET volume used to produce plastic beer bottle will exceed 1 million MTs in 2005. bottle and film fields. the overplus of PET production capacity in Asia was about 2.4% in Chinese bottle marketplace.8% of global PET was used to produce chemical fibre. and in 2004 this volume increased to 31. about 14% of global PET output was used to produce film.6 million MTs in 2004. PET is mainly applied in fibre. more than half of global PET was used to produce chemical fibre. In 2004. especially the price of materials is low. It is predicted that such situation will turn better until the price of raw materials falls down. mineral water and other packing fields. In 1995. film-grade PET will take a larger part of PET production in the world. and the application in other fields only accounts for 1. At present. But during 1999 to 2003 the production volume of fibre PET in developed countries had began to drop by a small rate gradually. and this proportion will be up to 17% in 2005. the consumption volume of bottle-grade PET in the world was 5. Because the capability of PET resin is steady.

Chinese polyester filament output increased 24%. about 84% of PET products was used to produce polyester filament and staple fibre (also called terylene). 5 . China is a large PET consumer. far higher than other countries. accounting for 49% of global output (exceeding 7 million MTs).5%. In China. which will drive the consumption volume of PET. From 2005.2. Chinese PET production capacity accounts for over one third of global PET production capacity. China’s market share of textile products in the world will expand from 17% in 2002 to 45% in 2005. it created conditions for Chinese polyester products moving to international market. and its proportion in global chemical fibre output increased from 36% to 40%. the output in China grew rapidly in 2004. and polyester staple fibre increased 22%. The consumption volume of PET products in China increases at the rate of 8. Although the rate of operation of PET in China was not enough. Meanwhile. With respect to the output of chemical fibre. The high-speed development of Chinese polyester industry provided sufficient lowprice raw materials for Chinese textile industry. PET Market in China During 2000 to 2004. the average annual growth rate was much higher than that in the world. accounting 42% of the global output. about 10% was consumed in packaging field and 5% was used to produce film in 2004. and lays the foundation for the continuous development of textile industry.

I-1. put its 60. Ltd. then PET can be obtained through polycondensation reaction.Part I Technology Development I-1 Historic PET Technology Trends In 1984. Heating Esterified molecules Polyreaction EG Polyester Chips Cooling Polyester Polyester Filaments Industrial Fibre Engineering Plastic 7 . After polycondensation reaction between PTA and EG. most of the PET manufacturers adopt two production technologies to produce PET polyester. I-1. At present.1 DMT Technology DMT technology adopts the principle that DMT and EG take ester exchange reaction. PET product for distribution is produced. Now in China. Sinopec Yizheng Fibre Chemical Co. few PET producers take this technology in China. DMT technology and PTA technology.000MTs/year PET chips production line into production.. and cutting PET into chips or granules in water. The production flowchart of PET is as follows: PTA Esterification. The following is the brief introduction of the two technologies.2 PTA Technology PTA technology adopts PTA and EG as raw materials.

The reaction contains two steps: The first step is to make PTA and EG take esterification and generate BHET. Time for polycondensation reaction is two hours at least. Thus the polymerization degree and reaction speed can be improved. for this temperature should be higher than melting temperature of polymer (260-265℃) and lower than the decomposing temperature of polymer (300℃). during the esterification phase. The mol ratio between EG and PTA is within 1.2:1. The key points in the second step include: • • • • In order to shorten the reaction time. the reaction pressure should be higher than atmospheric pressure. And the reaction temperature should be higher than the boiling point of EG for the same reason. The second step is to make BHET take polycondensation reaction in the condition of activator to generate PET. The reaction balance should be broken to let this reaction move to the right direction. and be various in terms of various reactors. The optimum reaction temperature is within 275~290 ℃. • • 8 .1~1.

I-2 Current PET Technology Assessment I-2.1 Reactor Tower Chinese manufacturers have imported ESPRF reactor towers and installed them. This reactor can cut down the production cost by 26%, and improve the sales revenue by 22%. The most important point is the quantity of PET polyester is improved greatly. This reactor was invented by EMS Inventa-Fisher Company. I-2.2 Catalyzer At present, about 90% of PET manufacturers in the world still adopt stibium as the catalyzer. Even though stibium has good catalyzing effect, people are more concerned about the toxicity than before. Top PET manufacturers in the world, such as DuPont, Acordis, and Synetix are making effort to develop environmental protection catalyzers. I-2.3 Advantage of PTA Compared to DMT Compared to DMT, raw material PTA has following advantages in PET production Smaller raw material and energy consumption; Smaller EG recycling system; No byproduct of methyl alcohol; Smaller investment; Smaller production flow; Stable production control;

Now in China, most PET manufactures adopt PTA production technology. I-2.4 Pre-moulding Pre-moulding processing is the early step of bottle making. Now some manufacturers plan to do pre-moulding directly with melting PET material. This technology can cut down the production cost greatly. The current difficulty is how to prevent PET from destroying in polymerization process. I-2.5 PET Moulding Technology PET moulding technologies include moulding, blowing, coating, adhibiting, electroplating, printing, etc. The moulding processing of PET can be carried out through the operations of plastic injection, extrusion, plastic blowing, coating, adhibiting, processing, plating, metallizing, printing and so on.


6 Filling Technology for PET Bottles PET bottles filling technology includes cold filling and heat filling. both one-step and two-step can be adopted to mold the bottle top first. The two-step production process of hot filling PET bottle is: 10 . being stretched and plastic blown.6. Pipe blanks molded in the plastic injection position by this method will be directly transferred to next position. The difference is that one-step process is completed by one plastic-injection. I-2. Here the definition of two-step process is different from that of cold filling PET bottle. If the material of bottle top and bottle body is PET resin. stretched and blown plastic after being deposited for more than 24 hours. The automatization level of this process is high.2 Introduction of Hot Filling PET Bottle Molding Technology The technology of hot filling PET bottle was developed on the basis of cold filling PET bottle molding technology. The molding of bottle top of hot filling PET bottle by twostep process referred here is completed by separate machines. However.I-2. There are special requirements on the bottle top. One-step process is also called thermal forming. Two-step technology is that pipe blanks are heated. the investment needed is not large and it is easy to operate and maintain it. the molding process of one-step technology is unlike the process of two-step technology. In general.6. while the production of bottle blanks and plastic-injection. The automatization level of this process is low while the energy consumption is high. I-2. the equipment of this process is simple. The one-step and two-step processes are basically similar. Because of the special requirements of hot filling PET bottle. stretching and blowing molding machine. stretching and blowing in the twostep process are completed by two separate machines. only two-step process can be adopted. then to another position. Chinese drink producers mainly adopt one-step and two-step processes to produce cold filling PET bottle.1 Introduction of Cold Filling PET Bottle Molding Technology At present. if PC is taken as the material of bottle top. The one-step production process of hot filling PET bottle is: PET resin→desiccation→molding pipe blanks by plastic injection or embed pieces→temperature control→stretching and plastic blowing→thermal forming→cooling forming→product. while the energy consumption is low. and the one-step process needs to make corresponding operation to the bottle top when moulding the bottle preform blank while the two-step only needs to do such operations before heating.

PET resin→desiccation→bottle top crystallization→re-heating pipe blanks→stretching and plastic blowing→thermal forming→cooling forming→product. 11 . This method is widely used in hot filling PET bottle production at present.

I-3. I-3. Even minimum oxygen in the packaging container will make the taste of beer changed. These requirements become key problems in the development of plastic beer bottle. Meanwhile. more and more large PET manufacturers have invested much to carry out PET obstructive research in terms of the raw materials. which makes the fresh-keeping period of beer in PET bottles reach 100 days. highly obstructive performance is attached more and more attention. and the packaging requires enduring 6267℃. At present. while the lost of CO2 in the beer will have impact on the bubble effect. they are constructing new factories and plan to carry out large-scale production. preventing aromatic flavor from emanating out. I-3. At present. tea and other drinks needing hot filling packaging. After thermal forming. I-3.1 Performance Improved PET Highly obstructive performance generally means the highly obstructive function of packaging materials to gas. preventing CO2 from emanating out. such as preventing oxygen from oxygenating the food. At present. PEN has a high heat enduring performance. milk and fruit juice industries. equipments. Therefore. highly obstructive PET is mainly used in food and beverage packaging industry.I-3 Innovations in PET technology China has achieved a few of technologic innovations in recent years. which will be a profit spotlight. processing and PET performance improvement. They are thermal forming bottle. preventing water or vapor from damping the products. Therefore. It can be produced into over 80℃ hot filling bottles. and are developing 1. Thermal forming bottle is fit for 85℃ filling requirement. PET/PEN alloy bottle and multilayer complex bottle produced with heat endurable polyarylate. it has strict requirement on the resistant packaging material to meet the requirement of fresh keeping and validity. as the major function of PET packaging material. liquid and other infiltrations. They have experimentally produced 350ml and 500ml PET bottles. 95% of beer in China is produced with pasteurization method.5L and 2L beer bottles. They adopt co-injection and blowing pulling technology. the bottles can endure over 90℃. for the huge future market potential.3 Gas-Resistance Performance Beer is different from ordinary carbonic acid drinks. Shanghai Zijiang Group and Zhuhai Zhongfu Group have invested large quantity of capital in researching and developing new technology.4 Multi-layers Technology 12 . three categories of heat endurable polyester bottles have been developed.2 Heat Endurance Improvement Ordinary PET bottles cannot be used as containers of juice. In order to replace the glass bottles and metal cans packaging in beer.

Now many companies are developing oxygen-absorbing agents mainly for the production and packaging of polyester bottles. Amosorb is a positive interlayer. showed their interest in how to cut down the production cost of multilayer PET bottles at the polyester conference in Zurich. Amosorb is used in the more profitable multilayer bottles.5 Coating Technology Coating technology is to coat epoxide layer inside and outside the PET bottle. Said Farha. Coca Cola’s Chinese and Indian market need lower price-packaging bottles because the sales prices in the two markets are lower than other market in the world. having permanent oxygen-absorbing function. Barnaby Wallace and Mr. EVOH can improve the resistance performance of PET bottles over ten times.Three-layer or five-layer bottles can be produced. which was headquartered in Britain. As transparent polyester. EVOH is an efficient material with high gas-resistance performance. or carry out plasm disposal (ACTIS technology). Switzerland. At first. Mr. I-3. taking PET as raw material and mixing into other materials with excellent gas-tightness property such as PVDC. and wellsealed character is the key performance for the small volume bottles for the higher volume/surface area ratio. the two beverage giants in the world. Wallace commented that the price for multilayer ET bottles is still higher for the beverage manufacturers. The other question about multilayer bottles is the recycling question. used as oxygen absorbing agent in packaging industry. Thus these beverage products need well-sealed packaging. In 1998 Amoco Corporation put Amosorb into commercial production. In China about 70% of products from Coca Cola are distributed by distributors. which means that the low-cost well-sealed packaging bottles will have a huge market potential. Even though the high price and the challengeable recycling job. but some oxygen-absorbing agents will de-function after the drink have injected into the bottles for some time. Farha commented that the using amount of un-returnable drink bottles will increase. So lower bottle cost can increase the profit in Coca Cola (China) and Coca Cola (India). commented by Farha and Wallace. And later BP purchased Amoco Corporation. BP Corporation. The demand of EVOH increased 13 . developed Amosorb DFC that is a kind of polyester. Mr. multilayer PET bottles packaging is very possible to be the leading technology in beverage packaging industry for its good seal character. and is estimated as another method to improve the sealed performance of polyester. Most bottle pieces recycling merchants can’t economically separate each kind of raw materials that multilayer bottles use. the purchasing managers respectively from Coca Cola and PEPSI. EVOH and MXD6 and PEN. So it’s generally after two or three months the beverage was produced that the Chinese consumers can buy it. and can absorbing the oxygen around the bottle’s inner wall and the bottle’s cap.

England. Eval (Europe) expanded the production capacity of factory in Antwerpen to 24.81 million MTs). Hull. It is reported that the resistance property of NPET is stronger than ordinary PET.6 Other Resistant Resin Molding Taking PEN or copolymer and mixture of PEN and PET as raw material.000MTs/year EVOH manufactory in Saltend. Carbonic acid beverage bottles and beer bottles made via ester exchanging reaction between PEN and PET.rapidly along with the rapid demand of PET bottles. They have produced semi-transparent beer bottle sample. In the United States the total market value of PET for bottles was about 4 billion pounds (1. The above two methods have disadvantages of low transparency. The Chemistry Institute of CAS cooperated with Yanshan Petrochemical Company to research PET/MT nanometer composite material (montmorillonite) and its applications. I-3. beer manufacturers packed their products with PET/PEN blend bottles and sold them to Los Angeles. it can be disinfected with alkali and recycled. difficult to be recycled. In the United States and Western Europe. and the market size of EVOH and MXD6 was about four hundred million pounds (180. and the relevant PET/PEN blends extruders and bottleblowing machines have been already put into market. the gas-resistance property and heat endurance of bottles have been improved. Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) took advantage of PET polymerize intercalated composite technology. chemicals resistable. I-3. 2004. Miami and other five cities. complex technology and special requirements on equipment. Nippon Gohsei constructed a 15. Chinese beer industry generally adopts pasteurization method after filling. Although its gas-resistance property is improved.PET Bottles In Oct. which meet the requirement of three to six months of retention period of beer. whose sales number of the bottles added up to 300 million. put together organic-montmorillonite and PET monomer into polymerization kettle and produce nanometer PET (NPET) beer bottle. UV obstructive (UV of wavelength under 383nm can be obstructed). and nine of the top 20 PET bottles manufacturers had used EVOH or MXD6 into their products. On the molecular side chain of PEN. heat resistable (Tg=112~ 123℃).000MTs). there are naphthalene nucleuses instead of benzene rings. which reduces the cost. thus taking PEN or copolymer of PEN and PET as raw material and utilizing through current PET bottle blowing equipment and technology to mold bottles is adapted to the development orientation of beer plastic packaging in China.000MTs/year. So PEN have good performances of gas obstructive. Beer packaged in NPET bottle tastes the same as fresh beer after 4-5 months of deposit. Meanwhile.7 Nanometer. lower gas absorption. The difference between PEN & PET is only on the molecular side chain. Since 2002 the demand of EVOH in Europe has increased with 15% rate. it is only adapted to asepsis filling due to its low heat endurance. resistance property of which is 14 .

This new technology can produce 0. it will not be damaged in the process of transportation and deposit. the transportation weight of each Glaskin TM bottle reduces 320g.8 Diamond film PET Beer Bottle Leidi Technology Group invested about RMB200 million to produce diamond film PET beer bottle in Shenzhen.

Facility Almost all major PET producers in China adopt PTA facility to produce PET. aluminum. it’s about 10 hours for Chinese producers while 3. zirconium and natrium and their mixture. Catalyst Amongst most catalysts used by PET production facilities. while foreign manufactures take high EG/PTA and comparatively high temperature for esterification to intensify reaction condition in order to accelerate reaction speed and shorten reaction time. Process The conditions of polycondensation process in China and abroad are basically similar to each other. there are few such breakthroughs in China. neither in foreign countries. The comparison of Chinese and foreign technologies is narrated from following aspects. there are many breakthroughs in foreign countries that solve technologic difficulties of PET such as heat endurance problem and gas-resistance problems. there is a gap between Chinese technology and foreign advanced technology at present. the usage volume of stibiumcategory catalysts accounts for 90%. and the step of technologic innovation falls behind at the same time. the technology applied by Chinese PET producers was introduced from foreign countries. There are few DMT facilities in China. Chinese producers usually adopt comparatively low temperature and pressure. In general.I-5 Comparison of Chinese and Foreign Technologies Before 1990s. the level of the most advanced PET production technology in China is equal to the level of foreign countries at the end of 1990s. Currently. At present. This is similar to overseas PET producers. Italy. French Rhone---Poulenc Company and Japanese Teijin Limited are the major PET producers adopting DMT facilities abroad. Chinese PET producers started to research PET production technology and achieved innovations since 1990s. Technologic Innovation Ability Chinese PET production technology is laggard behind some advanced countries. However. France. while there is a big difference on the conditions of esterification process in China and abroad. Some companies aboard have already started to develop the catalyst system using lanthanon.5 hours for foreign producers. silicon. German. Britain and the United States are the main technology sources. With respect to the total reaction time.

but the technology in China is not very mature at present and the technologic bottlenecks have not been broken. there is few difference between Chinese and oversea PET products in terms of environmental protection.Generally. It is also the reason that the demand of industrial fast injection moulding cannot be satisfied. there are still three major restriction factors in PET production which Chinese PET technology cannot solve. Technologic Bottleneck Currently. German BASF Company. slow crystallization speed and weak stabilization of size. heavy metal and ash. as well as certain pressure-endurance. processing performance as well as the content of aldehyde.

II-2 Key Factors Influencing PET Production II-2 .1 International Raw Material Supply During past years, domestic supply of raw materials for PET production, PTA and EG is insufficient. Chinese PET manufacturers have to import PET and EG from foreign countries or regions. The annual import quantity of PTA accounts for about 60% of the total PTA consumption in China. Chinese PET manufacturers have to suspend their production when they are unable to purchase raw materials or the volume of available raw materials is very small. China’s PET production relates greatly with the international raw material supply chain. In 2004, the short supply of PTA made PET output in China only 50% of the total PET capacity. As the largest PTA manufacturer in the world, BP thought that China has the largest PTA market demand in the world and BP is very concerned about Chinese PTA market. A senior executive from BP estimated that the total production volume of BP in Mainland China would reach 3.7 million MTs and the imported volume would reach 4 million MTs by the end of 2005. And he also estimated that the imported volume would be higher than three million MTs for a long time in the future even though the domestic production volume is increasing gradually. A professional in domestic PTA industry estimated that the annual growth rate for PTA would continue the 12~14% growing rate for the huge demand from the domestic textile industry. At present, there is a large supply gap of PTA in China. Although several sets of large-scale PTA production facilities have been put into production since 2003, the dependence degree on export still increased to 56%. In 2004, Chinese PTA increment accounted for about 62% of global increment, which had great influence on PET market. China’s demand for EG is also very big. And domestic supply can’t meet the increasing demand of EG. Thus the Chinese manufacturers have to import EG from foreign countries or regions with very big quantity. II-2.2 Domestic Consumption In China, most PET products are used in three main fields, PET fibre (polyester filament and polyester staple fibre), PET bottle (packaging) as well as PET film. PET fibre is a most important chemical fibre for textile industry, and China is the largest textile and cloth production base in the world. PET fibre mainly includes polyester filament and polyester staple fibre. In general, more than 80% of PET in China is used to produce chemical fibre. In 2004, the output of polyester filament in China grew to 7 million MTs and its consumption volume was 7 million MTs. The output of polyester staple fibre increased to 4.3 million MTs, and China consumed 4.7 million MTs. The total PET consumption for both polyester filament and polyester staple fibre in 2004 was 9.78 million MTs. In 2005, the consumption volume of polyester filament and polyester staple fibre will increase to 8.2 million MTs and 5.9 million MTs this year, respectively.


It is predicted that the output of polyester filament in China will increased to 9.5 million MTs and that of polyester staple fibre will rise to 6.5 million MTs in 2010, both of which will consume 18 million MTs of PET in 2010. Therefore, chemical fibre industry is an important influencing factor for the production of PET. PET bottle is another consumption field of PET products. PET bottle can be used for packaging of beverage, beer, edible oil and other products, thus the market of these products is another influencing factor of PET production. In 2004, 1.2 million MTs of PET was used to produce PET bottles, accounting for more than 10% of total PET consumption. In 2010, the proportion will increase to 15%. In China, at about 5% of PET is used to produce PET film, and this proportion will grow in next few years. Thus the development of film industry influences PET production as well. II-2.3 High Cost of Raw Materials Currently, a major factor that restricts the development and application PET in China is the high cost of raw materials. In 2004, the price of international crude oil rushed to the peak of USD55.67/barrel, soaring 78% compared with the beginning of 2004. The price increment became a direct force to drive the cost of PX and ethane, and then increase the cost of polyester raw materials, PTA and EG. The impact on PET raw materials from the international oil price is still remarkable in 2005.

Chinese PET manufacturers mainly use PTA and EG to produce PET products. In Aug. 2005, the average domestic price of PTA is about RMB7,900/MT, and the average price of EG is about RMB10,000/MT. In Sep. 2005, the prices of PTA and EG will rise to RMB8,260/MT and RMB10,500/MT, respectively. The average price of PET in the same month is RMB13,000/MT. There is only a little profit for PET producers. In addition, because the raw material supply of PET greatly depends on import, the price fluctuation and supply of raw materials in international market have direct impact on Chinese PET industry as well. However, as the chemical fibre, food, beverage, cosmetic, wine and beer industries develop at a high speed, more packaging materials are needed. In order to reduce the cost of packaging cost and bring more profit, more and more investments are or will be put into the research of raw materials. It’s sure that the production cost for PET will reduce and the application range will be wider and wider, with the improvement of processing technology and the expansion of production volume. II-2.4 Competition with Foreign Competitors In 2004, the apparent consumption volume of PET in China was 11.6 million MTs, growing 34.51%. And the apparent consumption volume will increase to 13.9 million MTs in 2005,


and some PET giants have already set up companies in China. These technologies have many unfavorable factors. China is a attractive market for foreign PET producers. such as strict requirements on plastic processing machines. Therefore. 000MTs/year. the second is to improve PET obstructive performance by adopting compound technology and surface treatment technology. PTA and PET. which directly stimulated the price of beverage 23 . It is likely to reduce the import price for PX. II-2. and the United States. multilayer compound technology is the mainstream of PET obstructive packaging technology. PTA and PET by USD5~10/MT.growing 19. Most imported PET is from Taiwan. infiltration-resistance and radiation-resistance is still a blank in China. High cost of raw materials including PTA and EG is the main reason for PET’s price increment. Therefore. Since all Chinese PET manufacturers set this kind of PET products as the major development direction in the future. Japan.6 Bottleneck in Production Technology Gas-resistant PET with good performances of heat-resistance. thus current tariff policy is favorable for Chinese PET producers and it will improve the competitiveness of Chinese PET products. the PET price has increased from RMB8. while China only imports a small quantity of PET. large investment in equipments. Taking beverage industry for example. It is estimated that this volume will keep double-digit growth in next few years. foreign competitors have the advantages in terms of technology. Meanwhile. and that of PET and PX was cut down 1% to 9. it’s estimated that the production quantity of this kind of products will increase at a high speed. On the basis of the tax rate in 2004. The cost of beverage packaging material PET accounts for half of the product cost.7 PET Price Price is a very important factor that influences the sales of PET. raw material supply and sufficient investment. 100/MT in 2005. 710/MT in 2003 to RMB13. During the past two years.5 Customs Tariff In 2005. high production cost and environmental pollution caused by recycling difficulties. complicated processing control. these unfavorable factors have limited the wide application of PET in China. the tax rate of PTA was reduced 0. Chinese government lowed down the import tax for products of polyester chain including PX. II-2. II-2.31%. China needs to import PET products from foreign countries. according to the commitment of China’s entry into WTO. In China. Because the raw materials for PET production in China mainly depends on import.7% and 2%. The price of edible PET materials once roared from RMB 7.5% to 6. which makes domestic manufacturers feel pressed. South Korea.500/MT to RMB14.5%. Chinese PET manufacturers have to compete with manufacturers in these countries or regions.

product to increase sharply. In addition. end users of PET downstream products have planed to use other package materials in stead of PET if the PET price increases to the level beyond their purchasing capacity. It is estimated that the high price of PET is likely to make profit of beverage industry slide down 20% in 2005. 24 .

In 2004 the short supply of PTA made the output of Chinese PET only reach 50% of the total PET capacity. The reason for this phenomenon is that the cost of performance-improved PET materials is too high. Although many cutting-aged technologies were developed to enhance the gas-resistance performance of PET.1 Technical Difficulty Technology is a key factor influencing production. or the improvement degree is not enough.74 million MTs and 1. while as of now none of them was really accepted by PET users.3 Capital Shortage 25 . In 2005. Advanced technology can improve production output and reduce production cost. Technology for PET production is still in the process of research and development. However.2 Shortage of Raw Materials Chinese PET manufacturers have to suspend their production activities when they cannot purchase raw materials or available raw materials are insufficient. and the production capacity of these two materials will increase a lot in recent years. there are some difficulties of PET production. It directly increases the production cost of PET. China’s total demand of PTA and EG in PET production will be 11. the shortage of raw materials will still be a serious problem in Chinese PET production. or the performance-improved PET materials bring difficulties for the recycling of bottles. Although there are some new or ongoing projects of PTA and EG. it still cannot supply enough PTA and EG for PET production.II-3 PET Production Difficulties In China. II-3. beer and wine industry.12 million MTs respectively. Therefore. shortage of raw material as well as capital problem. Current PET material’s oxygen and CO2 resistance performance cannot meet the technical demand for beverage industry. especially the PET bottle manufacturers of beverage and beer industries in China. Chinese manufactures have to import raw materials from abroad. mainly including technical difficulty. II-3.15 million MTs. while the output of PTA and EG will be 3. the gas-resistance performance is a technical problem remaining unsolved at present. Therefore.5 million MTs and 3. II-3. domestic supply of raw materials is far to reach the demand.

26 . Some PET manufacturers in China stopped some of its production lines for capital shortage.PET is a capital-intensive and technologic intensive product. It needs large capital investment in every production sector. Capital problem is another serious problem in PET production in China.

The contradiction of product structure is serious. Chinese PET products are inadequate. while non-fibre products only account for 10%. Aiming at Chinese chemical fibre market. there is a large distance and many problems in Chinese PET production. Polyester fibre products account for about 90%. mainly depending on polyester fibre with low value-added in domestic and oversea market.II-4 Competitiveness of Chinese Production and Supply II-4. The demand of domestic chemical fibre has not obtained great breakthrough. Especially after the textile quota was nullified in 2005.2 Prospect and Opportunities China has the biggest textile industry in the world. Current Chinese polyester industrial chain is serious unbalanced. Thus thin film grade PET consumption will keep incredible growth rate in the world. China has the biggest beverage. The United States and European Union set many handicaps to Chinese chemical fibre export. China is also one of the biggest manufacturing bases of electronic products in the world.1 Distance and Problems Compared to PET production in foreign countries. The upstream and downstream products are out of joint. much more fibre-grade PET will be used to produce polyester filament and staple fibre. especially the environmental protection will be the next barrier to China. Chinese government attaches importance to environmental production. oversea multinational companies and foreign-funded enterprises adopt technologic blockage and grasp Chinese market. which consumes a large volume of fibre grade PET products. which requires producers to produce chemical products in new production manners and management mode to reduce cost and pollutant. which will also maintain a high growth rate of PET consumption in packaging resin grade sectors. - - - - - - II-4. beer and food production industry in the world. - - 27 . far lower than the 35% average level in the world.

- China’s continuous high-speed economic growth in market consumption will ensure the Chinese PET manufacturers believe that producing and market PET products in China is still a promising business. 28 .

the apparent consumption volume of PX broke the key barrier of 2 million MTs to 2.1 Demand & Supply Situation Because of steady growth of demand. thus it is an indirect raw material of PET. However.21 million MTs to 3. and the operation rate of PTA facilities in China reached 100% or even 110% of the total production capacity.8 million MTs. the production capacity and output of PX increase continuously.1% compared to 2000. hitting a historic record and increasing 72. the production capacity of PTA in China reached 4. The capacity construction lags far behind the growth of the demand. the cost of raw materials accounts for about 75%~80% of the total cost of PET production. II-5. At present. Up to the end of 2005. 29 .II-5 Raw Material Supply Situation At present. the global PX consumption is mainly concentrated in PTA field. China is the largest import country of raw materials for PET production in the world. In China. the new capacity increment of PTA was bout 1. due to large demand gap.1 million MTs in China. most PX in China is used to produce PTA. the supply gap of PX in China will be up to 1.6 million MTs. It is forecast that the consumption volume of PX by PTA facilities in 2010 will reach 5. By 2006. During 2002-2003.12 million MTs/year which demanded 2. the production capacity of PX is predicted to increase 1. China imported.4-6. The demand and consumption for PX increase greatly for the following reasons: The increasing demand of PTA and the increasing profit of PTA business drive the overburdened running of most PTA facilities in China. II-5.1. with the consumption volume accounting for about 85% of total PX consumption.1 PX PX is a principal material of PTA. while the production capacity of PX was 2. as Chinese polyester industry grows rapidly. According to custom statistics. It is estimated that 90% of PX output in the world will be used to produce PTA by 2007.5 million MTs/year.36 million. On that occasion. Since 1990s. China needs to import large quantity of PX from abroad every year.74 million MTs. while the increment of PX was only 450. It is predicted that the gap between PX demand and output will widen further. In 2003. The supply of PX produces much influence on PET production.000MTs.50 million MTs.

- Many new PET facilities were put into production in the past years. 2004. are under checking and fixing. 30 . thus the PX supply situation becomes more tensional. regardless to the claims form downstream buyers.1. 2005 for about 40 days. the price of international crude oil keeps on increasing. on the other hand. - Even in sometime. especially facilities in South Korea. RIL’s total capacity of PX is 1.35 million MTs/year. announced to stop its PX facilities in Jamnagar in Oct. Indian Reliance Industries Limited (RIL). 2004. which will probably result in regional tense supply. PX supply control has completely shift to the PET suppliers who can decide the sales price according to the supply/demand situation. a PX giant in the world.2 Pricing of PX The following table describes the price information since Jan. The reasons for the price increment lie in that on the one hand. II-5. Many PX facilities. while the import price of PX kept rising during this period. It shows that domestic price of PX was relatively stable since Jan. huge PTA demand caused the PTA shortage problem. and no new PX installations were put into production.

II-5.3.2 Consumption Situation of EG in China At present, EG is mainly used to produce PET and antifreeze in China. In 2004, about 84% of EG was consumed by PET products, and 16.2% was used to produce antifreeze and other products. Although Chinese EG production capacity and output grows rapidly, the supply of EG still cannot meet the increasing demand of in domestic market because of the strong demand from polyester industry. China needs to import large quantity of EG every year, and the import volume presents an upward trend year by year. And this trend will keep in coming several years. The following table lists the detailed records of consumption as well as import and export information of EG in China in recent 10 years.

PET manufacturers and users are optimistic to the future PET consumption market. 37 . The driving force behind the rapid growth of PET in China is the rapid development of food & beverage packaging industry in China. PET growth rate has maintained a high level for over ten years. and China only imports a few of PET from aboard. purified water.II-6 Historic PET Market Development PET industry was started in China in 1987. In China. PET recycling becomes the big problem since the production and consumption volume of PET has become very big. At present. the output and apparent consumption volume of PET in China grew at a double-digit rate. Now in China most of the plastic bottles used in the packaging industry of fruit juice beverage. Terylene fibre industry approached the edge of deficient. China has gradually become the biggest market for bottle grade and packaging resin grade PET. PET capacity in China had expanded 15 times. thus the production volume of PET in China has also increased at a rapid speed. tea drinks and sports drinks are made of PET materials.6%. especially in China. which in Asia. The global PET development speed is dropping. the apparent consumption from domestic end users for PET chips has developed very quickly in recent years. During the past ten years. The average growth rate is 36. Before 2004. far higher than the global average growth rate. or bottle grade PET is the fastest. the average growth rate of output volume speed is 104%. from 1995 to 2004. The price drop of downstream products in petrol and chemical industry in 2004 also cause the profit in PET industry to drop greatly. the output of PET in China can basically meet the domestic demand. With the rapid development of China’s economy. In China. PET has become one of the most important petrochemical products in China. PET bottles’ wide application will continue to drive the development of PET consumption. followed by that of film grade PET while the fibre grade PET has began to slow down the development speed. In 2004 the international oil price went up greatly which affected the market situation of PET’s raw materials and made the cost of PET production increased. the growth rate of packaging resin grade. which is six times to the average speed in the world. even though the PET price increment brought fewer profit to PET supply industry and higher cost pressure to the PET users in China.

Therefore. Some large scaled packaging service suppliers are looking for PET material suppliers to ensure they can purchase PET materials with big volumes. bottle caps and film labels made from food grade PET material.000/MT to the peak of RMB14. demand from downstream industries as well as transportation cost. only the large-scaled manufacturers installed the bottle-blowing equipments. Because the draught and bottled purified water are all packed with pails. And some Chinese beverage manufacturers even estimated that they might not achieve the sales target in fiscal year 2004. and the PET price is one of the key factors that decide the profit. supply of raw materials.IV-2 Factors Resulting in Price Changes In general. 500~8. It will be impossible to raise the sales price for their beverage products for the intense competition during this summer season. In Chinese beverage industry. The markup of PET price actually brings much trouble to many Chinese beverage manufacturers.1 Price of Crude Oil In 2004 the crude oil price in New York Market rose to the peak during the past 24 years. 500/MT to RMB14. 000/MT. bottles. bottle cap and film label accounts for half of the total production cost of a 600 ml beverage. The unit price for PET was 30% higher than that in the same time in 2003. With the markup of petroleum and chemicals prices. Chinese beverage manufacturers are very concerned about the price of PET. The cost of PET bottle. On the contrary. IV-2. thus the Chinese beverage manufacturers had to control and lower down the inner cost and expenditures. and the industrial profit might reduce 20% in fiscal year 2004. 000/MT. For the big manufacturers. And only these equipments are in 78 . Large Chinese beverage manufactures disclosed that the markup of PET caused the rapid increase of production cost. And statistical data also showed that the current PET raw material price was 30% higher than the price at the end of 2003. the business of domestic packaging service suppliers is very good even though the PET price rose. the unit price for PET material in China also went up from RMB7. but for the middle and small manufacturers. they have to face the hardship. the markup of petroleum and chemical products caused the markup of food grade PET material directly from RMB7. they can reduce the pressure from cost markup by purchasing PET with big volume. PET accounts for about 50% of total production cost of beverage products. the factors resulting in price changes mainly include the price of crude oil. The markup of food grade PET material’s price affects the profit of the Chinese beverage manufacturers directly because as the package raw material.

full-running condition, the packaging service suppliers can control the production cost of PET bottles. Therefore, most of the beverage manufacturers have to outsource food grade PET bottles from professional packaging service suppliers instead of making by themselves. This is the secret of how the beverage packaging service suppliers earn money. IV-2.2 The Supply of Raw Material The PET Products Chain is as follows:

Packaging resin Crude oil PX PTA PET Thin film


Now in China, the situation of unbalance between short supply of raw material and oversupply of end products is evident. The short supply of PX drove the PTA price increase; and then the cost increment was transferred to PET producers. Thus the PET producers had to face two problems, short supply of PTA and increase of PTA price. IV-2.3 Demand from Downstream Industries In terms of the downstream products, currently over 80% of PET is used to produce chemical fibre in China, thus chemicals fibre is a major downstream products of PET. The development of chemical fibre influences greatly the PET industry. Many textile manufactories in China expanded their production capacities years ago. The demand for PET increased rapidly, which accordingly made the price go up rapidly. China is a big exporter of textile products. But in 2005, the demands for PET do not increase as anticipated. The upward evaluation of RMB, the limit of textile export from United States and European Union press the textile manufacturers in China have to reduce production volume. Thus the development speed of demand for PET was slowed down. IV-2.4 Transportation Cost During the past years, the waterway transportation cost, truck and railway transportation cost in China all increase, which made the PET production cost increase as well.
