Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Market Projected to Reach USD 99.75 Billion by 2031, Driven by Surging Demand for High-Quality Packaging


A recent report by SNS Insider indicates the Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Market was valued at USD 47.68 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 99.75 billion by 2031, demonstrating a significant CAGR of 9.65% over the forecast period (2024-2031).
