The president of the VXL plastic bottle manufacturing company in the Emirate of Sharjah, Zenal Omar, was quoted by Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper, stating that his company is planning to open new bottle manufacturing plants in the different Gulf states. Omar asserted that this move is aimed at satisfying the growing demand for bottles manufactured by the PET technology.
According to Omar, the average annual growth rate of the PET-based bottles consumption in the Arabian Gulf states is between 8-12 percent, implying an addition of two billion bottles per year.
The need for environment-friendly bottling and packaging products has grown and continues to rise at a fast pace as a result of the growing consumers’ awareness of protecting the environment. The demand for these bottles is expected to hit peak records in the Arabian Gulf states in the near future,
VXL company has already invested over 25 million dirhams ($7 million) in its Sharjah-based plant. — (Albawaba-MEBG)
