PET Bottles are not a Single use Plastic : Recycling it is an untapped treasure.

                PET Bottle are not a Single use Plastic:

              The first thing that comes to our mind when we hear the term "plastic” is a material that has been damaging our mother Earth since its discovery. Well, the purpose of this article is to educate everyone about this unavoidable, man-made, engineered material, PET, that, if it is put to use correctly, can do wonders in terms of profitability and environmental sustainability. There are a huge hue and cry about plastics worldwide and it is for real issues that we are facing. But, there is a saying, little knowledge is a dangerous thing. It would be an injustice to PET to compare it with other forms of plastics which are of single-use, non-food grade & unsustainable. The "single-use" plastic is used in the manufacturing of items such as Plastic cutlery, Wrapping and Packing films, PVC banners -less than 100 microns thick  to be banned from July, 2022 (TOI). Also, items like Earbuds with Plastic sticks, Plastic flags, Thermocol, Candy sticks etc. to be banned from January, 2022. PET is the only plastic that doesn't fall under the umbrella of all the plastics which the government is planning to ban. And the reasons for this is its recyclability, non-toxicity and versatile applications.

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Did you know? 
1.	A car that you drive is made up of 50% of plastics by volume.
2.	According to a study, a household kitchen is 31% made up of plastics.
3.	Indian Cricket apparel in the 2015 world-cup was made from recycled PET bottles, just like their current jersey.





        PET by default is transparent, tough, unreactive, efficient, unlike other toxic and hazardous plastics, making it a perfect replacement for brittle & heavy glass articles. You may notice how PET has been replacing the conventional use of glass in our kitchen storage jars, beverage bottles, automotive headlights and other countless applications. PET can be recycled into more products than Glass, thus making it more versatile and ‘Useful’ material. PET is also lot cheaper to recycle than Glass and requires less energy and creates fewer greenhouse gases as compared to Glass. Dependency on the PET, irrespective of hue & cry, has been increasing at a growing rate. PET was valued at $23,891 million in 2016 and is expected to reach $38,014 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 6.9% from 2017 to 2023. This is creating profitable opportunities for PET recyclers to bridge the gap between demand and supply. Not all plastics are the same and people need to be made aware of them. Plastic which is getting recycled is not a problem but littering and poor collection system is the biggest problem, said Shri Prakash Javedkar, Minister of Environment and Forest. PET plastic is 100% recyclable as compared to other form of plastics and in India, close to 90% of the PET is getting recycled every year.

                Recycling capabilities make PET stand out from other plastics. It can be recycled into the same form or the other like a beverage bottle into a beverage bottle again, polyester fibre used for apparel, automotive components, textiles, geo-synthetics are the few to mention. PET is the purest and safest form of plastics and has approval from global food agencies such as FSSAI, FDA etc.

               "We identified large scale industries that use discarded PET bottle to produce a variety of products and visited their recycling facilities to incorporate our data," said Dr Magesh Nand Gopal, Scientist, NCL.

Hand Sanitizer Bottle is New GOLD

Hand Sanitizer Bottle is New GOLD

      Government has issued guidelines to use alcohol based hand sanitizer for protection from COVID19 Outbreak. This has resulted in surge in demand of hand sanitizers. Sales of these hand sanitizers zoomed in early February and by the end of February and hand sanitizers were out of stock. The reason for this was because the demand for this 'upper and upper-middle class' product had never been this high. What followed was more than a flood of companies launching hand sanitizers.

          At the beginning of 2020, India's hand sanitizer market had only 3 prominent players like HUL, GCPL and Reckitt Benckiser. In January and February 2020, the top three brands alone had a market share of 85% while others including existing players and smaller brands had only 15% share of the market collectively.

        However, in March, when the demand surged after the pandemic of Covid-19, these brands were unable to serve the market demand despite their increased efforts, and several other companies jumped into the sector.

      Corona virus pandemic has opened up avenues for India’s local brands who have found a new footing in retail and kirana stores in the wake of rising demand for FMCG products. With a demand supply gap arising in the lockdown situation, local players have started to plug the gap and especially in the hand sanitizer segment, regional players and smaller brands have eaten up the market of the top three players in the category.

       New entrants and smaller brands are now dominating the hand sanitizer market, a segment which has witnessed multi-fold surge in sales post the coronavirus crisis, says a report.

       In the month of March, as many as 152 new players entered the Hand Sanitizers segment. FMCG companies such as Dabur, Emami, Patanjali, Marico, Dalmia, Parle etc has launched their hand santizers in April to claim a share in the zooming market.

         Seeing the potential of earning other companies that decided to foray into the hand sanitiser space include the likes of Nivea, Dabur, Dukes India, Bajaj Consumer, Jyoti Labs, Cavin Kare,  Zydus Wellness and many more. Two paint Giants Asian Paints and JSW paints has also entered in the market. Many big alcobev companies also repurposed their lines to manufacture bulk quantities of hand sanitisers. Besides, several liquor makers, sugar factories and others also started production of hand santizer after the government  asked them to manufacture to meet the growing demand to tackle spread of pandemic.

          "Everybody is preparing for the post-pandemic period. There is a sense that personal and hand hygiene will take top priority in the minds of consumers. Therefore companies with the available adjacency are seeing this as an opportunity and additional stream of revenue," said an FMCG consultant.
          In March, the Ministry of Consumer Affairs had  also capped the maximum retail price of hand sanitizer at Rs 100 per 200 ml bottle till June 30 this year amid a sharp rise in the prices of this product owing to the coronavirus outbreak.

       With so many companies entering in to the market, it is needless to say it is important for a brand  to stand out and ensure profitability . A good packaging can help a brand to earn a unique identity which is imperative to increase the market share and create value of the product and earn profits.
         As the sanitizers are being packed in PET bottles in various SKUs, so with increase in demand of sanitizers the demand of PET bottles has also increased manifold, which has came up like a golden opportunity to PET Bottle manufacturers for not only earning good profits but also serving the mankind in supporting the noble cause.
