New Report Released: – Global Water Soluble Film Market 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global water soluble film market: Aicello, Arrow, Kuraray, and NIPPON GOHSEI.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AMC, Amtrex Nature Care, Changzhou Water Soluble, Cinch Packaging Materials, Extra Packaging, HARKE, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques, INFHIDRO, KK NonWovens, Neptun Technologies, Noble Industries, Soluble Technology, Soluclean, and Yongan SYF.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Development of food-grade film will be a key trend for market growth. Though the water-soluble film application was limited to chemicals, dyes, and other materials, their demand in the food and nutraceutical sectors is expected to increase during the forecast period. These films are used as binding and coating agents to protect the contents of the package from moisture, oxygen, and environmental gasses because of their high barrier properties. Water soluble films used for these purposes are in the form of a powdery solid and on spraying have film forming properties. This ensures the preservation of taste and functional characteristics of packaged products. These films also ease the handling process of perishable items and facilitate consumption of these products. However, these films, require optimum room temperature to remain intact. Apart from this, the food contents should be of neutral pH, i.e., neither acidic or basic. The low toxicity of water soluble film ensures safe packaging of food products. Water soluble films are also used in the film coating formulation of pharmaceutical tablets and capsules, but their use has been restricted by regulations laid down by regulatory authorities.”

According to the report, increasing use of embroidery services will be a key driver for market growth. Water soluble films are used as the proximal cloth in embroidery, which saves more time than paper. These films provide dimensional stability and help in creating beautiful embroidery. Since these films easily dissolve in water, one can later wash the film without damaging clothes. These films also have advantages over other embroidery film like it is non-toxic, it easily gets dissolve in water, and it doesn't result in producing wire-drawing, offset direction, nodal point, or wire-break. It is fit for a multi-head embroidery machine. It takes the place of non-woven fabrics as it can avoid textile deformation and fading in high temperature.

Further, the report states that market fragmentation will be a challenge for the market. The water soluble film market is highly fragmented and competitive with the presence of many players worldwide. Most of the players operating in the market are MSMEs (micro, small, and medium enterprises) with different business models from those of large corporations. Larger companies are capital-intensive and concerned with value-added activities like material production, innovation in products, and high volume supplies. This raises the cost of production per unit for these companies. With regional and local vendors providing substitute products at much lower prices, price wars can set in. When larger corporations try to emulate the same strategy to maintain their market share, they risk lower profitability, which affects their investments in R&D and product development.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
