The global breathable films market size reached US$ 3.6 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 5.79 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.85% during 2023-2028.
Breathable films are manufactured using thermoplastic resins via extrusion technology. They are waterproof, environment-friendly, and permeable to gases and water vapors on account of the presence of open cells throughout their mass. They are considered a cost-effective solution for manufacturing personal hygiene products, such as disposable sanitary napkins, baby diapers, and adult incontinences pads, due to their moisture locking properties. In addition, they are utilized in mattresses, protective clothing, isolation clothing, disposable supplies, and surgical gowns, which are employed in the healthcare sector. They can also be laminated with non-woven fabric composites using adhesive or a point-bonding calendar to produce soft textiles.
The outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has surged the need for personal protective equipment (PPE) and other essential medical supplies across the globe. This represents one of the key factors propelling the market growth. Besides this, the increasing demand for feminine hygiene products on account of schemes and programs undertaken by governments of numerous countries to improve the distribution network of sanitary napkins is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, regular diapers lead to a massive amount of untreated waste and land pollution. This, coupled with the rising environmental concerns and the growing awareness among parents about the proper hygiene of babies, is augmenting the application of breathable films in biodegradable diapers. Furthermore, a rise in the geriatric population with high obesity rates is resulting in the increasing incidences of adult incontinence, which, in turn, is contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, the growing investments in real estate projects are anticipated to positively influence the adoption of breathable films in the construction industry.
