Pet seeks wider application

pet is the most widely used beverage packaging material today

pet bottle originated in the early 1980s. Because of its light weight, easy forming, low price and easy mass production, it has developed rapidly with an irresistible momentum since its inception. In just 20 years or so, it has developed into the most important beverage packaging form in the world. It is not only widely used in the packaging of carbonated beverages, bottled water, condiments, cosmetics, Baijiu, dried fruit candy and other products, but also can be used in the packaging of fruit juice and tea drinks after special treatment. PET beer bottles processed with the most advanced technology are also entering the market, and aseptic filling PET bottles are also developing in full swing. It can be said that technological progress is constantly expanding the application field of PET bottles. It not only continues to expand the traditional market in drinking water and carbonated beverages, but also is launching an impact on the final position of glass and aluminum can packaging such as beer

at present, more than 30% of beverages in China are packaged in PET bottles, and this proportion is increasing year by year. It is conservatively estimated that the output of PET bottles in China last year should be more than 6billion. PET bottles have become the most important packaging form of carbonated beverages and bottled water in China; It has also achieved great development in the field of hot filling of fruit juice and tea drinks; And is becoming the most important form of edible oil packaging; Condiments such as soy sauce, vinegar and other products have also begun to use PET bottles; The Baijiu market with Wuliangye as the pioneer has also been launched. Beer manufacturers and professional bottle manufacturers are closely watching the huge market of beer, and various technical lectures and exchanges continue. Pet equipment manufacturers have also targeted the future market of aseptic beverage filling. In recent years, the shortage of PET raw materials in China has been alleviated; In terms of manufacturing technology, China has introduced a large number of the world's most advanced production equipment, including the two-step equipment of Canada husky and France disel, the one-step high-speed production equipment of Italy SIPA, and the one-step equipment of Japan ASB and Aoki

at present, China's pet bottle manufacturers mainly come from two parts: professional bottle manufacturers such as Zhuhai Zhongfu, Shanghai Zijiang, Sino regrets can, etc; Beverage producers, especially bottled water producers, such as Wahaha, Master Kang, robust, etc

large professional bottle manufacturers mainly adopt the two-step process of husky and Sidel to produce PET bottles, and adopt the process of centralized production of bottle blanks and decentralized bottle blowing. The supply objects are mainly carbonated beverage manufacturers such as Coca Cola and Pepsi Cola, and some juice and tea beverage manufacturers using hot filling, such as Tianjin Dahu and Kunshan Tongyi, etc. These professional bottle manufacturers have strong technical force and advanced equipment, and can mass produce bottles of various specifications. Unfortunately, Zhuhai Zhongfu enjoys the reputation of Asian bottle king, and its enterprise scale can be rated as the first in Asia. Some small bottle making enterprises mostly use Japanese one-step equipment to supply domestic beverage, edible oil, condiments and other manufacturers

on the other hand, producers of mineral water and purified water mainly produce PET bottles by themselves, such as Hangzhou Wahaha, Guangzhou robust, Tianjin Master Kong, etc. most of them have a large number of one-step production equipment in Italy and Japan. Some manufacturers of tea drinks, such as Master Kong, also use the equipment of SIPA, Italy, to produce hot filled PET bottles by themselves

I. carbonated beverages and bottled water

carbonated beverages are one of the traditional and most important markets for PET bottles

according to the complete statistics of 1998, there were 33 Coca Cola and Pepsi enterprises producing carbonated beverages of foreign brands in China in that year, with a total of tons of beverages. According to product packaging:

the output of polyester bottles was tons in 1998, an increase of 18.24% over the same period in 1997, accounting for 56.38% of the output of foreign brands

the output of cans in 1998 was 841072 tons, an increase of 3.20% over the same period in 1997, accounting for 31.05% of the output of foreign brands

the output of glass bottles in 1998 was 208958 tons, an increase of 8.38% over the same period in 1997, accounting for 7.71% of the output of foreign brands

the output of the current adjusted machine in 1998 was 131500 tons, an increase of 5.6% over the same period in 1997, accounting for 4.86% of the output of foreign brands

the statistics of 1995 are as follows:

in 1995, there were 28 enterprises producing carbonated beverages of foreign brands in China, producing a total of. 3 tons of beverages

717245 tons of polyester bottled beverages, an increase of 27.6% over the previous year, accounting for 48.9% of the total output

the pop can beverage was 500354.7 tons, an increase of 47.5% over the previous year, accounting for 34.2% of the total output

the glass bottle beverage was 160232.9 tons, an increase of 4.9% over the previous year, accounting for 10.9% of the total output At present, 85226.6 tons of machine-made beverages are available, an increase of 42.1% over the previous year, accounting for 5.9% of the total output

in other packaging, Tetra Pak accounted for 0.1% of the total output

it is not difficult to see that PET bottles have occupied more than half of the packaging of Coca Cola and Pepsi carbonated beverages. And its development momentum is the strongest

the situation of carbonated beverages of various brands produced locally in China is also roughly similar, and the proportion of PET bottles is even higher

the development of the two Cola giants in China is extremely rapid, and their output will double every three years on average. Although in recent years, due to its large base and other reasons, the growth rate has been relatively reduced, the growth of its absolute number is still quite amazing

at present, the two cokes basically have bottling plants in major consumer cities in China, and the factory construction contract signed by Coca Cola and the Chinese government has also been completed. A light industry source said that after China's accession to the WTO, it is possible to lift the restrictions on the construction of factories and the growth of total production of the two Cola companies

at present, the bottling plants of Coca Cola and Pepsi in China adopt the practice of purchasing PET bottles from professional bottling plants. Due to the strict requirements of the two cokes on PET bottles, at present, the bottle manufacturers in China are mainly Zhuhai Zhongfu and Shanghai Zijiang. These two enterprises each have dozens of sets of two-step equipment of ucky and Sidel, including the latest models such as the bottle blank machine of usky96 mold cavity and Sidel sbo24 high-speed bottle blowing machine. Zhongfu's bottle factories are all over the country, and almost all of them are built near the main coke factories. These bottle making plants and coke bottling plants are built simultaneously. Zijiang has not been satisfied with the Shanghai market in recent years. It has entered the West and moved north. It has built new factories in Tianjin, Hangzhou, Henan and other places. It is the most powerful professional pet bottle manufacturer in China, second only to Zhongfu. The two companies have almost all the product packaging of Coca Cola and Pepsi, and the advanced technical equipment and technical support enable them to meet the continuous production of new PET bottles of the two cokes

bottled water is the fastest-growing variety of beverages in China in recent years, and it is also another major user of PET bottles. It has even surpassed carbonated beverages and become the largest product category in China using PET bottles. Hangzhou Wahaha alone produced 930150 tons in 1998, and Guangdong today group 321455 tons

in addition, pure water has risen rapidly in China due to its small impact on water sources, and has now surpassed mineral water in production. Moreover, in recent years, after several rounds of development, China's bottled water market has formed several major bottled water production bases led by Hangzhou Wahaha. In 1998, the purified water output of Wahaha, robust, Zhengguang, Meilin and Yibao alone reached 1.08 million tons. Among them, the output of Wahaha Purified water reached 540000 tons. Zhengguanghe produces 200000 tons of purified water

pet bottles are the most important packaging form of bottled water, and most water drinks are packaged in PET bottles. For the sake of process requirements, 3. Considering that the machine can also do steel tube zigzag experiments by adding accessories, the bottler mainly purchases pet manufacturing equipment to produce PET bottles, and the equipment is mainly one-step. These equipment are mainly from Japan's rijing and Aoki. With the continuous expansion of the strength and output of bottled water production enterprises, Italian SIPA's high-speed one-step equipment has entered China since 1997, and has the potential to catch up. Wahaha and Dingxin group have purchased a large number of the company's equipment. In addition, robust has also purchased two-step equipment of usky and Sidel in recent years. This shows that the growing strength of Chinese bottled water manufacturers' demand for high-speed PET production models is booming

in a word, the carbonated beverage and bottled water market will continue to develop steadily in the next few years, and will still be the market with the largest and strongest demand for PET bottles

II. Baijiu market

glass bottles are the traditional market of Chinese Baijiu. Although the share of Chinese Baijiu in the whole alcoholic beverage market has been shrinking in recent years, the absolute output is still very large. In 1998, the output of Chinese Baijiu was 5.85 million tons. Fierce market competition has also made some large Baijiu enterprise groups stand out, forming a number of star enterprises in the liquor industry led by Wuliangye. For example, in 1998, the Baijiu output of Wuliangye reached more than 120000 tons

last year, Wuliangye took the lead in adopting PET bottle packaging on Jianzhuang wine, which has a high market share, and achieved good results. This is a signal that the Baijiu market is opening the door to PET bottles

but if someone comes out to eat crabs first, it doesn't mean that someone will follow him to do that. It is difficult to say whether or how many Baijiu enterprises will follow the example of Wuliangye and use PET bottles. There are conceptual reasons for this, but more importantly, PET bottle equipment manufacturers and professional manufacturers need to carry out more detailed and in-depth work

theoretically, PET bottles for Baijiu are no more difficult to manufacture than bottles for carbonated drinks and mineral water. Due to the bactericidal effect of alcohol itself, it should be said that PET bottles used for Baijiu packaging are not very demanding in quality requirements. However, if the benefits of using PET bottles are limited to reducing the damage rate, it is too simple to arouse the interest of wineries. In today's fierce market competition, packaging has become a key to open the market. How to push through the old and bring forth the new in bottle shape design and structural changes, and give full play to the advantages of PET bottles in color and molding processing is the key to further expand the market. This requires equipment manufacturers and professional bottle makers to strengthen communication with wineries

how will Baijiu enterprises introduce PET bottle packaging in the future

according to the experience of bottled water development and the mode that Wuliangye has gone out, it seems that China's Baijiu enterprises will also follow the path of purchasing equipment to manufacture PET bottles by themselves, but analyzing the current situation of Baijiu enterprises will find that the future trend is still uncertain. The reason is that Wuliangye, as a leading enterprise in the liquor industry, has far more economic strength than other enterprises. With tens of millions of investment, not many enterprises can afford it. This can be seen from the sales revenue of the top 10 Baijiu enterprises in 1998
