The German used disposable PET bottles market:
PET recyclers struggling with sales problems

21 Jun 2019 − 

Following on an already sluggish April, the month of May turned out to be a poor one for PET recyclers in Germany, nearly all of whom struggled with significant sales drops.

There have not yet been any signs of improvement for June, either. Without exception, recyclers and their suppliers described the situation as difficult.

By mid-May at the latest, converters either scaled back their orders considerably or cancelled them entirely.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German market for used disposable PET bottles. The EUWID Price Watch for May together with the complete report is published in EUWID Packaging Markets 13/2019.
