About Breathable Films

Breathable films are also known as semipermeable membranes. They are produced using mineral fillers such as calcium carbonate and polymers. The main use of fillers is to reduce the cost of the product by using carbonates instead of resins. It is a film with some holes or pores, which act as a barrier to large items but allow smaller objects to pass through. These micropores allow gas or water vapor to pass but restrict the flow of liquids. The process of manufacturing breathable films is almost like other films, but the only difference is the use of machine direction orientation (MDO). MDO is used to stretch the films uniaxially and develop micropores.

The analysts forecast the global breathable films market to grow at a CAGR of 7.32% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Breathable Films Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global breathable films market: Arkema, Clopay Plastic Products, Fatra, Mitsui Chemicals, and RKW.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 4titude, AMERICAN POLYFILM, Argotec, Covestro, KCWW, Megaplast, NITTO DENKO, Rahil Foam, Skymark, and Trioplast Industrier.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Breathable films to aid in healing process and reducing wrinkles. Breathable films can act as a second skin in the coming years; thereby, they will be able to assist in the healing process and reducing visible wrinkles on the skin. Olivo Laboratories, which is a collaboration between two researchers from Harvard and MIT, has come up with a fake skin that can be used for healing and reducing wrinkles on the skin. Other applications include eczema and psoriasis treatment and ultraviolet light protection.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increased spending on personal hygiene among consumers. Consumers are becoming more aware and are willing to spend more on personal hygiene and are adopting a healthier lifestyle. Increasing awareness among females and the use of feminine hygiene products is one of the major drivers of the female hygiene market, which is expected to grow over $42 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of more than 3.2% during the forecast period, with APAC having the major share.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Challenges with diaper degradation. The major application of breathable films is in the hygiene products such as baby diapers and feminine hygiene products. Manufacturing disposable diapers is a major challenge faced by the baby diapers manufacturers. Diapers have a slow rate of degradation and remain in the environment, causing harm to the environment. Diapers are one of the largest consumer items disposed of in landfills and account for more than 25% of the nonbiodegradable waste volumes. Moreover, disposable diapers contain dioxin, which is highly toxic. Thus, the breathable films industry will have to come up with biodegradable films that will reduce the non-biodegradability of baby diapers.

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.
