Published on Mar 08, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Breathable Films Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global breathable films market size reached US$ 3.33 Billion in 2021. Breathable films are cost-effective, polymer-based films that are manufactured using thermoplastic resins via extrusion technology. They provide moisture control in various products, including diapers, feminine hygiene, and incontinence protection products where breathability is an essential parameter of user comfort. Breathable films are also utilized in mattresses, protective and isolation clothing, disposable supplies and surgical gowns employed in the healthcare sector.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Breathable Films Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the escalating demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) and other essential medical supplies due to the global outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Besides this, governments of numerous countries are taking various initiatives to improve the distribution network of sanitary napkins, which has escalated the demand for female hygiene products, representing another major growth-inducing factor. In addition, the rising environmental concerns and the growing awareness among parents regarding the proper hygiene of babies have prompted manufacturers to use breathable films in biodegradable diapers. This, coupled with the rising incidences of adult incontinence among the geriatric population, is also contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the increasing investments in real estate projects are expected to escalate the demand for breathable films in the construction industry. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 5.34 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.50% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
