The German PET market:
Rainy summer dashes hopes for improvement

16 Aug 2021 − 

The German market remained difficult terrain for manufacturers of PET and producers of preforms for beverage bottles.

At the beginning of August, the season had more or less run its course and the year had not been good, according to EUWID respondents. Influences on delivery channels reportedly improved over the course of the year but demand did not return to pre-Covid levels. The reopening of restaurants and the return to tourism after the lockdown were slow. A hot summer could have cushioned the delivery losses in the German market somewhat, but since it was too rainy and cool the hoped-for revival failed to materialize.
