Specialty Films

Demand for specialty films is being impacted by a number of factors. Since packaging accounts for two-thirds of demand for specialty films, trends in retail spending, demographics, and food consumption are important factors affecting specialty film sales. The fastest gains will be in the biodegradable and water soluble film functions, the result of rapid growth in markets such as degradable packaging for food and nonfood items.  The fastest growth through 2023 is forecast for fluoropolymer films, which will benefit from bright prospects in pharmaceutical packaging and industrial filtration. EVOH will exhibit a similar rate of growth in demand in barrier packaging applications. This new study discusses how these factors will impact sales of specialty films going forward.   

Functional segments covered include:
Barrier films
Microporous films
Safety and security films
Conductive and insulative films
Light control films
Water soluble films
Biodegradable films

Resins used include:
Polyolefins
Polyester
Nylon
Ethylene vinyl alcohol
Polyvinyl butyral
Polyvinylidene chloride
