Breathable Films Market

Market Leader - Breathable Films Market

The breathable films market is estimated to be USD 2.4 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 3.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 8.2% between 2020 to 2025. Rising awareness of health and hygiene and increasing the purchasing power of consumers are the major drivers of the global breathable films market during the forecast period.

Breathable films are thin films with a characteristic property of allowing vapor to pass through while retaining the liquid. They are manufactured using various polymers such as polyethylene (PE), polyurethane (PU), polypropylene (PP), and polyester along with mineral fillers such as calcium carbonate. The presence of mineral fillers gives breathable films a microporous structure. Breathable films are also manufactured using polymers such as co-poly amide (CoPA), polyether block amide (PEBA), and polyether ester. These are monolithic in nature and have properties such as elasticity, permeability, and strength.

Breathable films are used in a wide range of applications such as hygiene, construction/roofing underlayment, and housing wrap, disposable protective garments, surgical gowns and drapes, fabrics to make sportswear and defense jackets, and in food packaging.

Increasing per capita GDP (at PPP) with rising awareness on health & hygiene in developing countries is expected to drive this market.

Expansions, investment, and agreements were the key strategies adopted by the major players to achieve growth in the global breathable films market between 2017 and 2020. The major players in the breathable films market are Toray Industries (Japan), Mitsui Chemicals (Japan), Berry Global Group (US), Arkema (France), RKW Group (Germany), and Schweitzer-Mauduit International (US).
