China PET bottle chip export started to see marked increase since last September, primarily because of supply shortage in overseas market. So far, if overseas supply doesn't recover, growing space still exists. Amid strong foreign demand and slower than expected domestic capacity release, China PET bottle chip cash flow skyrocketed.

PFY exports maintained steady growth in recent years, while 2017 is due to stock shortage, hence products are used to fulfill domestic demand first. PFY export regains growth in 2018.

DTY possesses the largest share in PFY export, and may continue expanding in the future. PIY share slips while other specs like POY keeps steady and FDY inches lower.

PFY exports increase in Jan-May is mainly contributed by DTY, then POY. PIY saw limited increase in past 2 years.

PSF exports generally maintains steady. PET film export has been increasing steadily but with limited volume.
