Adhesive films are generally thin layers of adhesives installed on sheets, films, or tapes of different types of materials such as fabric, polymer, or paper that require a bonding with a surface. Adhesive films are used in a broad number of industries including automotive, packaging, electronics, medical, construction, footwear and furniture. Adhesive films also find applications in several consumer products. Adhesive films are generally derived from different chemistries such as polyvinyl acetate, acrylic, polyurethane, epoxy, polyvinyl butyral, and silicone and styrene butadiene copolymers. Adhesive films find wide applications since they are electrically conductive as well as are electrically insulating. Adhesive films are basically materials such as polymers, plastics, paper and textiles with a thin layer of on one or both surfaces. This aids them in sticking to the concerned surfaces. Adhesive films act as essential sticking joints between two surfaces. Adhesive films are used labels, tapes, graphic wraps, glazing, protective films, masking, tinting, specialty films and insulating among others. Adhesive films offer a broad spectrum of benefits including easy usage, lower material usage, quick disposal and application along with versatility in accordance to the utility of end-user. The aforementioned advantages of adhesive films make them the material of choice for many consumers over conventional alternatives such as clamps and screws. Adhesive films have been adopted by a wide array of end-use industries such as electronics, packaging, automotive, medical, aerospace and several industries among others.
Rising adoption of adhesive films and tapes especially the medical grade used for wound-care applications is a key factor driving the global adhesive films market. Moreover, increasing demand for adhesive films for application in light-weight and compact products and devices especially in the electrical and electronics industry is anticipated to fuel the global adhesive films market over the forecast period. In addition, rising pressure from government and non-government regulatory bodies in order to achieve lower carbon emission and improved mileage performance in vehicles in automotive industry is expected to boost the global market for adhesive films. Increasing growth in packaging industry in food & beverages sector is likely to propel the global adhesive films market over the forecast period. Also, frozen food industry being the predominant consumer of adhesive films is further expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Adhesive films are generally used to bond plastics with paper or cardboard thus providing desired bonding capabilities. Furthermore, increase in demand for frozen food due to increase in hectic lifestyle especially in developed economies and metropolitan areas of emerging economies coupled with the rise in consumer spending ability are some major factors driving the global adhesive films market. However, volatility in prices of feedstock, especially the petroleum-based raw materials employed in the manufacture of adhesive films along with and stringent regulations against the use of volatile organic compounds emitting chemicals are some factors likely to hamper the growth of global adhesive films market in the coming years.

Introduction Oil spill is a general term used for contamination of sea, soil or land by oil or release by accident or mistake. Oil sources are spread throughout the world and are drilled both onshore and offshore. Since oil is a key source of energy, it is important that oil be consistently distributed and shipped. Oil is mainly transported by sea vessels and land pipelines. The ve
Introduction Nylon is a lightweight, tough synthetic polymer that is capable of producing as a molded, filamented and sheet object, and has a chemical structure. It is a thermoplastic, silky material that after melting process can be converted into films, fibers and forms. Two synthetic polymers are nylons 6 and 66 known to be polyamides used in the automotive, plastic and textile
