Water Soluble Films Market

Water Soluble Films Market by Type (Hot water Soluble, Cold Water Soluble) By Application (Detergent, Agrochemical, Water Treatment Chemical, Dye, Food, Laundry Bags, Embroidery, Pharmaceutical Packaging) - Global Forecasts to 2025

Report Code: CH 3512 Feb, 2021, by marketsandmarkets.com

[217 Pages Report] The water soluble films market size is projected to reach USD 476 million by 2025 from USD 364 million in 2020, at a CAGR of 5.5%. Water soluble films are manufactured from polyvinyl resins and are synonymously called PVA/PVOH films. These films are used for specific unit dose packaging of detergents, agrochemicals, water treatment chemicals, food ingredients, pharmaceutical drugs, and dyes. Apart from these, the films are used in embroidery and laundry bag manufacturing. The gorwing pharmaceutical industry is driving the demand for water soluble films.

The positive attitude of governments on green procurement policies and a shift in consumer preference toward eco-friendly packaging and other applications in the agriculture and composting industries are some of the major factors attributed to the high demand for water soluble films. Increasing agricultural output will also impact the use of water soluble film for agrochemical packaging.

Impact of COVID-19 on water soluble films market.

The global pandemic has affected almost every sector in the world. The water soluble films market is expected to be negatively affected due to disruptions in the global supply chain. The market is highly dependent on the detergent, water treatment chemicals, pharmaceutical, and food & beverage industries.

APAC countries had taken preventive measures, such as social distancing at an early stage, to stop the spread of the virus. The highest population is based in Asian countries such as China, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Central Asian countries.

According to the IMF, the GDP growth rate of the region will fall to 0% in 2020. China, India, and South Korea will also have slow economic growth. The GDP growth rate in China is expected to drop by 1.2% in 2020.. 

Growing pharmaceutical industry

The pharmaceutical industry is growing at a rapid pace in emerging economies. Advanced manufacturing processes, technological innovations, and increased integration of companies have resulted in the rapid growth of the industry. This growth of the pharmaceutical industry is driving the water soluble films market. The growth is expected to be the highest in emerging economies such as Brazil, Russia, India, and China. Increasing income levels and growing awareness about the advantages of good healthcare systems and healthier lifestyles are supporting the growth of the market in these countries. Large population and demographic factors such as growing young population and higher life expectancy are also the key drivers of this growth. According to the World Bank, healthcare expenditure of Brazil, China, and India was around 9.5%, 5.1%, and 3.5% of the GDP in 2019, which was a substantial increase from 2015.

As the developed markets (US, UK, Germany, France, and Italy) become saturated, pharmaceutical companies are aligning their growth strategies largely on the rapidly expanding emerging markets, especially the BRIC countries. The market expansion, increasing aging population, clinical and technological advances, and rising expenses in public healthcare systems are providing opportunities for pharmaceutical companies to expand in this region. This is, subsequently, propelling the water soluble films market.

Increased demand from agriculture industry

The demand for better crop yield is increasing with the rise in population, and this has increased the focus on improving crop yield across the globe. Various agrochemicals are being used, and safer as well as optimum dosage is required depending on the crop type. This will help in increasing the demand for water soluble film packaging as the proper amount of chemical can be packed, making it safe to use as the chemicals can directly be used without the removal of the packaging water soluble film. The water being used for irrigation can be treated with chemicals to provide essential nutrients to crops. Chemicals used in agriculture are toxic in nature and can cause pollution and endanger living being’s health. Thus, a limited or needed quantity in smaller packs can work efficiently while limiting pollution to the environment.

High manufacturing cost

The major restraint to the growth of the water soluble film market is the high cost. Generally, the production cost of water soluble film is 60-140% higher than conventional plastic films. This is primarily due to the high polymerization cost of biodegradable plastics, as most of the processes are still in the development stage and, hence, have not achieved economies of scale.

Renewable/bio-based technologies and materials are not yet commercialized to the same level as their petrochemical counterparts. Currently, the cost of biodegradable plastics varies from USD 2/kg to USD 6/kg, whereas that of traditional plastics is approximately USD 1/kg to 2/kg. Higher R&D and production costs due to small-scale production and the significant price difference compared to traditional petroleum-based plastics are key factors restraining the penetration of water soluble film in various industries.

Edible water soluble film

Food-grade components can be used to develop water soluble film, which can be used for packaging the food ready for direct intake. Additional development can be done regarding moisture sensitivity of water soluble film, which can be then used for packaging of edible products such as soup, powdered gravy mixes, and hot chocolate, as these products can witness much potential in the market. The transparent, odorless, tasteless, and water soluble film can act as a sustainable wrapper. For example, MonoSol - the brand of Kuraray, is working within the protein and supplement industry in manufacturing a pre-portioned supplement packet that can dissolve in a shaker bottle. This can eliminate the hustle of mixing and measuring protein shakes while consuming

Water Soluble Films Market  by Region

North America to account for the largest share of the global water soluble films market during the forecast period

North America is projected to be the largest water soluble films market during the forecast period. The rise in safe and better living conditions, along with the use of green products, is the driver for the water soluble film market. The slow and steady economic growth in Europe also contributed to the growth of the water soluble film market in various industries and consumer applications. The rising world population led to an increased focus on improving the crop yield with better use of agrochemicals across the globe. This has resulted in the growth of water soluble film in agrochemical packaging. The acceptance of water soluble film is more in developed countries such as the US and the UK. The companies are also expanding in developing nations such as China and India, as these countries are highly populated and will give a first-mover advantage to the companies. Globally, there is an increasing awareness of the use of environment-friendly products and the demand for biodegradable packaging has risen, which boosts the use of water soluble film.
