Global Breathable Films Market Report 2021-2026 – Focus on Biodegradable Breathable Films with Organic Parogens & Increase in Preference of Manufacturers from Cast to Blow Film Extrusion
Dublin, Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Breathable Films: Global Markets to 2026” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global market volume of breathable films should increase from 782.9 thousand tons in 2021 to reach 1,091.5 thousand tons by 2026, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% during the forecast period of 2021-2026.
The breathable films market is anticipated to grow at a higher rate on the back of growth in the medical, pharmaceuticals and personal care, and hygiene industries.
About half of the breathable films are consumed by the personal care and hygiene industry for the production of sanitary napkins, diapers and adult incontinence products. The medical industry is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, especially during the pandemic due to the increasing consumption of hospital disposables globally.
During the pandemic, industries including medical, pharmaceuticals, and personal care and hygiene grew due to increasing consumer awareness regarding health and hygiene; however, industries such as construction, apparel and clothing, and food and beverages experienced downturns during this period.
Commonly used polymers include polyethylene, polypropylene, polyurethane, polystyrene and polyamide. Polyethylene is a widely used polymer, especially linear low-density polyethylene due to its excellent breathable properties and low price; however, low degradation of polyethylene is still a concern.
Polyethylene-based breathable films account for around two-thirds of the total market in terms of volume and around half of the total market in terms of value. Polyurethane is expected to grow at the highest rate due to its increasing applications and beneficial properties in the production of breathable films.
Pricing of breathable films depends on the polymer used; polyethylene is the cheapest polymer used for producing breathable films, followed by polypropylene and the others segment. Polyurethane is more expensive than other polymers and has a limited supply in some regions.
By film type, the microporous segment holds the major share of the breathable films market, accounting for more than two-thirds of the market. The microporous segment is expected to grow at a rate higher than the overall breathable films market due to its increasing applications in the medical and healthcare-related segments.
The global breathable films market is fairly fragmented, and the top players account for a small share of the market. Top manufacturers of breathable films include RKW, Omya AG, Trioplast Industrier AG, Berry Global and Mitsui Chemicals.
