ITP Now Follows Global Trade in Two New World Trade Reports on: PET Bottle Grade, and, PET Polymer Other Than Bottle Grade.

ITP’s current PET World Trade Report combines these products for historic continuity. In 2017, the World Customs Organization created new Harmonized System codes that separately identified bottle grade polyethylene terephthalate with a viscosity greater than or equal to 78 ml/g and other PET, with a lower viscosity. ITP now follows these products separately, as well as combined. In 2019, ITP analyzed nearly 9 million tons of trade in bottle grade PET in 2019 and 4 million tons of other PET.
