PEF market was valued $167.9 thousand in 2017 and is expected to reach $129.3 million by 2025.

As the plastic bottle industry shifts toward bio-based plastics, PEF is expected to be a game changer in the bottle industry. Several Tier-1 companies have publicly announced their ambitious goals to add substantial amount of PEF capacities in their product-line. As PEF is seen as a direct competitor for PET, industry experts believe that PEF has enough potential to replace PET in several applications, including bottle, films, and fibers. Companies such as Synvina, AVA-Biochem, and Corbion nv have already started pilot production of PEF for process optimization and product innovation and have also announced major capacity additions within the next five years to commercialize PEF.

Moreover, the substantial support from end users, such as ALPLA Werke Alwin Lehner GmbH and Co KG, Danone, and Nestle S.A., gives a ray of hope to PEF manufacturers to commercialize PEF at a substantial level. For instance, the capacity addition of XX kilotons from Synvina and its tie-up with ALPLA Werke Alwin Lehner GmbH and Co KG clearly indicates that PEF will have significant demand from the market once the capacity gets operationalized.

The growth of the polyethylene furanoate market is directly dependent on the capacity development of FDCA and as the production volumes of PEF reach a commercial and an industrial scale, PEF is expected to start impacting the PET market. The PET market is already a well-established market with huge volumes being produced each year; however, PEF as a new entrant but with better characteristics than PET and being bio-based, is expected to start replacing PET in the coming years. As the production volume of PET is already very huge and the announced capacity additions of PEF seems too small when compared with that of the global consumption volumes of PET, PEF therefore is expected to witness a little entry barrier and gain its share in the global PET’s applications market.
