The global breathable films market size is expected to reach around US$ 26.3 billion by 2026 growing at noteworthy CAGR of 5.7 % throughout the forecast period 2019 to 2026.

The report provides analysis of global Breathable Films market for the period 2015-2026, wherein 2019 to 2026 is the forecast period and 2018 is considered as the base year.

The combined mineral fillers like calcium carbonate and polymers are produced to produce breathable films that produce a microporous structure that allows for a mere transmission of water vapour without transferring water. The filler material is used mainly to reduce costs through carbonate replacement of resin. The main components of the manufacture of breathable films are polymers such as polyethylene, polypropylene and polyurethane. Breathable films maintain fresh food products with increased shelf-life and usability. In food packaging and textiles, non-porous breathable films are used, while in disposable medical products like surgery gowns and gloves microporous films are also used in hygienne products such as baby clothes, feminine hygiene and adult clothes.

Market Dynamics

An increase in awareness of health & hygiene and substantial healthcare expenditure is likely in the forecast period to boost the market demand for respiratory films. Hygiene products penetrate less than developed nations in Asia-Pacific and African countries. One of the main driving forces for the baby cloth markets is the increased birth rate while an increasingly aging population is fueling the growth of the adult cloth market. During the forecast period, increased demand for premium diapers will boost the market for respiratory films.

Market Insights

The growth is projected to be driven by increased construction and construction expenditures, notably in Asia Pacific coupled with high demand for sport and industrial safeguards. The growth should continue to be driven by increasing awareness of health and changing consumer trends. The increased demand for product is also expected to raise concerns about the comfort of garments and increasing use by respirable films in jackets, footwear, gloves, and helmet.

The rising demand for baby disposables, health products for women, and incontinence products for adults is projected to boost demand for the product over the projected period. The non-porous segment should generate a substantial portion of market income, which is projected to continue in the coming years.

Increased hygiene concerns are expected in the forecast period to stimulate market growth. In hygiene and medicines, respirable movies are widely used to produce robes for barrier, medical linen, patient clothes, surgical clothing, wound dressing, inspection robes, clothing underpads, filters, bed coverings, paintings, clothes, wipes, towels and incontinence pads. The increase in disposable revenue and healthcare expenses is projected to increase demand from 2019 to 2025 for respirable films. The population of children and the elderly is projected to increase demand for cords.

Nevertheless, the growing demand for disposable baby diapers is expected to increase in emerging countries due to increased disposable revenue. The demand for disposable cords in Asia Pacific is expected to grow rapidly in the near future. The increased utilization of disposable clothing wallpapers, lifestyle occidentalisation, and an increase in working women should contribute to the demand for respiratory films at local level. Increased demand for hygienic and convenient childcare products has also become important in the region.

Raw Material Outlook

In 2018, Polyester Segment was the leader in the market for breathable movies and is estimated to increase revenue by CAGR by over 6 % over the forecast period. The increasing use of non-porous respiratory films should increase demand. The use in hygiene and healthcare of polyethylene films is projected to stimulate growth further.

The segment of polypropylene is also expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer used throughout a broad range of uses, including the packaging and labeling, paper works, plastic components, reusable containers, and lab equipment. Included in this segment are respiratory films made of highly filled polypropylene. PP or metallocene PP can be classically catalyzed, using polypropylene.

Product Insights

The segment which is not porous was the biggest market share in 2018 and will expand to the highest CAGR by 2025. Growth is expected to be driven by increasing use in textiles, packaging and medical products. Dense and pinhole-free polymer membranes are non-poreous films. Usually these membranes are hydrophilic and absorb water fast. The transmission of water vapor via a process called active diffusion is possible via non-porous films. This kind of respiratory film is often used for clothing, electronic equipment, disk drives and logistics.

Application Stance

In 2018, packaging was the largest application segment and health and hygiene were followed. Breathable films are used to manufacture packaging solutions for freshness and hygiene, such as packaging bags, rolls and bags, to pack vegetables and fruits. These films are used in the foodstuffs, fruit and vegetables industries because they permit the sealing, the smoke penetration, cook-in and keep fruits and vegetables dry and thus increase their shelf-life. Appetizing films should also be witness to a massive adoption of industrial protective clothing. It is used to offer personal protection and comfort and strength from hazardous industrial environments. They are applied in the manufacture of masks, suits, guides, clean room clothing, footwear, chemical protective clothing, radiation protection clothing, fire retardant clothing, and other protective industrial clothes.

Regional Stance

Asia Pacific, followed by Europe and North America, was the prevailing regional segment with nearly 37.0% market share in revenue in 2018. An important driver for the polyamide market in this region is the increase in the consumption of packaging material in the food and beverages, pharmaceutics and personal care sectors. There are projected to be high growth in China, Japan, Thailand, and India, followed by other countries of South Asia.

The Chinese government has paid greater attention to energy efficiency building. The development of water proof breathable films used for the building, the pressurization plate, the panel roof and the exterior construction were vigorously supported in China. The development of waterproof breathable films was carried out. As a result, Asia Pacific's growth in building activities is expected to drive demand for a regional product. In the near future, growing European production facilities should further boost growth.
