The focus on marine litter and circular economy goals across the world will further intensify market pressures, as increased volumes of recycled PET resin and fibre erode demand for virgin product. The rapid fibre market growth over 2017-2018 absorbed a potential capacity surplus, but growth has already declined significantly this year. The escalating US/China trade war, risk of conflict in the Middle East, and various other global political and economic issues make it seem impossible for demand growth to absorb the new supply.

Outlook for Mexico as Recycling Hub – Strengthen perception of PET with current global status on plastics…
Mexico's packaging market is growing with 75% of all finished products in the country requiring packaging, of these, 90% are in the food and drinks category. This is good news for the PET and rPET packaging companies. The country's PET recycling capacities are also growing as majors and recycling processors this year, are expanding their PET recycling facilities in Guadalajara, Monterrey and Chihuahua – where used PET bottles collected from landfill and collection centres are being recycled into PET flakes.
With consumers becoming more conscious about plastic usage & sustainability there is an increasing focus on PET recycling. Although collection and sorting infrastructure is still a major concern, Mexico's ECOCE is promoting better collection of PET wastes. The APR Design Guide for Plastics Recyclability (APR Design) is the most complete and easy-to-use resource that describes the recommendations of the plastics recycling industry in the market today. A new material [PLA] is now added to APR. Find out more about this at ECOCE's session at the 17th LAPET.
Brand owners are also invested in creating a circular economy in Latin America – as shown by PepsiCo's recycling program – ‘Recycling with Purpose' is expected to be operational in 10 Latin American countries by 2021 – that includes Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Guatemala and Jamaica. The program aims to collect 6,000 tonnes of recyclable materials per year across Latin America.
How are global and regional brand owners meeting their circular economy targets in the LATAM region? How can recycling rates be improved? What is the impact of recycling on the virgin materials? What are the major hurdles in collection and sorting of PET waste? How are global economic conditions affecting PET and rPET markets in LATAM? What is the best feasible way to mechanically recycle and in coming years via chemical recycling ? How much the market will shift again with the opening of the mammoth Corpus Christie project by next year…
