Description


Specialty and high performance films are thin films made from various polymers, such as polyester, fluoropolymer and polycarbonate. These films are different from conventional films as they exhibit excellent barrier properties, high tensile strength, chemical stability and resistance to heat and impact. Growing packaging industry for food and non-food products is expected to be one of the key factors driving the growth of specialty and high performance films market. In addition, the growing demand for photovoltaic (PV) systems which converts sunlight into usable energy is another key factor affecting the demand for these films. However, volatility in prices of crude oil which consequently affects the prices of its downstream chemicals is expected to hamper the specialty and high performance films market adversely. Development and commercialization of biodegradable and water soluble films is expected to open future markets for specialty and high performance films over the near future.

Free Market Analysis


Specialty and high performance films are polymer films which can be transparent or opaque. These films often find applications in industries such as packaging, automobile, construction and electrical & electronics among others. In addition, these films exhibit various characteristics such as high tensile strength, resistance to chemicals, high impact resistance and high tear strength. 

The growing demand for packaged food and non-food products and the subsequent increased use of specialty and high performance films to increase the life of the packaged product is expected to be one of the primary factors driving the market. In addition, films are being increasingly used in semiconductors which are used in photovoltaic (PV) systems and electrical & electronic goods, due to unique electricity conducting properties of these polymers. Shortage of supply of electricity and its rising costs is driving the growth of PV market, which in turn is expected to contribute to the growth of films market over the forecast period. However, volatility in the prices of crude oil which subsequently impacts the price of its downstream products is expected to hamper the growth of specialty and high performance films. Development and ease of availability of biodegradable and water soluble films is expected to open new opportunities for the market.

Polymers such as polyesters, fluoropolymers and polycarbonates are used in the manufacture of specialty and high performance films. Polyester films dominated the market accounting for over 75% of the market in 2012 due to its use in packaging. Polycarbonates are being increasingly used for applications that require properties such as high impact resistance, chemical resistance and low moisture absorption among others. Over the next six years, polycarbonate is expected to show the highest growth owing to rising demand for electronic goods and construction activities. Fluoropolymer is expected to show substantial growth in the near future due to its increasing use in PV systems. The demand for polyester is expected to be above average as a result of the growing packaging industry.

Barrier films accounted for nearly 50% of the demand in 2012 due to its wide application in packaging. Demand for improved hygiene in packaging by consumers is expected to drive the demand application. In addition, more and more product manufacturers are using these films to increase the life span of their products, thus, contributing to the demand. Other films such as light control films are expected to show the fastest growth over the forecast period with more and more people using these films. Increasing application of light control films in buildings, automobiles and electronics is expected to fuel the growth of this application.

Rising construction activities in countries such as China, India and Brazil on account of rapid industrialization and use of films for aesthetic as well as functional purposes such as safety & security and light control is expected to drive the demand for films over the next six years. In addition, re-construction activities are highly prevalent in developed countries of North America and Europe. Increasing use of films in residential and non-residential buildings is expected to drive the demand. Packaging was the largest segment for films and accounted for over 65% of the total demand in 2012. Growth of flexible packaging market is expected to drive the demand for specialty and high performance films. Thus, construction and packaging sectors are expected to lead the demand for specialty and high performance films in the near future.

Demand for specialty and high performance films was largest in Asia Pacific accounting for over 35% of the total volume in 2012. Rapid industrialization and economic development in this region is expected to drive the demand for films over the forecast period. In addition, presence of a large number of manufacturing units in this region is expected to fuel the demand for specialty and high performance films. Furthermore, the increasing demand for consumer goods such as televisions, mobile phones and computers is expected to contribute to the growth of the market in this region. Re-construction activities in developed regions such as North America and Europe are expected to contribute to the demand for films in these regions. Moreover, the rising demand for packaged goods due to rising consumer awareness regarding hygiene is expected to drive the demand in this region. Growth of medical industry globally is expected to drive the demand for specialty and high performance films over the forecast period.

The specialty and high performance films market is fragmented in nature with the top four companies accounting for less than 45% of the total market in 2012. Bemis Company Inc, was the largest company leading the specialty and high performance films market in 2012. Certain other leading film manufacturers include DuPont, Sealed Air, Eastman, Honeywell, Clopay Plastic, Dow and Kuraray. Companies such as DuPont and Dow have fully integrated operations from extracting polymers from crude oil to supplying the finished products to end-users.
