ITP Now Follows Global Trade in Two New World Trade Reports on: PET Bottle Grade, and, PET Film and Fiber 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 equal to or greater than 78 ml/g and PET with a viscosity less than 78 ml/g, generally used in film and fiber. 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 PET for film and fiber.
