COVID-19 impact on the global breathable films market
Due to the pandemic, demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) kits has grown exponentially from the healthcare workers on the frontline fighting against the virus. Initially, the demand for PPE kit was catered by China, but due to the US-China trade tensions and PPE kits failing quality teste sent by China to India are some factors that led other countries to start local production. This has increased the demand for breathable films as the breathability of PPE kits is one of the critical parameters during quality testing. The breathable films market in 2020 is anticipated to reach USD 2.6 billion, with a growth rate of 7.3%.
Restraints: stagnant growth in the baby diapers market in the developed countries
The penetration rate of baby diapers is about 95% to 98% in North America, Western Europe, and Japan. The high penetration rate of baby diapers in developed economies is the reason for the slow growth rate of breathable films in the developed economies.
Opportunities: Untapped market with lower penetration
The penetration level of hygiene products in developing countries is still very low. Countries with large populations and high birth rates such as China, India, and Indonesia currently have a very low penetration rate. However, the demand is expected to grow significantly with the increase in per capita income, growing awareness regarding health and hygiene, and changing consumer preference. There is a big prospect for the growth of hygiene products as well as breathable films in emerging countries such as China, India, and Indonesia.
APAC is estimated to be the largest market for breathable films. China is estimated to be the leading market for breathable films in APAC. India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and South Korea are other major countries contributing to the growth of the breathable films market in the region. The increasing demand for breathable films from applications such as medical, hygiene & personal care, food packaging, and construction is expected to drive the breathable films market in these countries.
