Breathable Films and Membranes: Market Insights
Breathable films & Membranes have been developed to meet the increasing and continuous demand for comfortable and safe usage, fresh quality of packed products and convenience of use. Breathable films & membranes reduces the anaerobiosis which occurs due to accumulation in packaging and also due to release of steam in a microwave system . Non-porous breathable films & membranes are also used for packaging purposes as they can respond to desired and undesired fluctuations in temperature by changing their gas permeability which depends on the change in temperature.
Non-porous breathable films & membranes have temperature-dependent permeabilities and different coatings. Manufacturers are also developing breathable films & membranes with various blends coated on the breathable films & membranes which offer a barrier to water making it an application of choice for applications such as construction wrapping, sport & medical clothing, and roofing.
Breathable Films & Membranes due to their breathability and geometry are tailored to meet the demands of various markets and offer innovative technico-economical solutions. Breathable films & membranes are most commonly used in lamination technologies such as heat systems, glue systems, and ultrasonic systems. The continuous demand of packing for several industries fuels the growth of the breathable films & membranes industry.
Breathable films and membranes: Market Dynamics
The development of breathable films and membranes with properties such as elasticity, permeability and strength is expected to be the key factor driving growth of breathable films and membranes market. Applications of breathable films and membranes include medical applications, construction applications, food packaging, clothing laminates and others. Also, rising demand of hygiene products are expected to boost the demand for breathable films and membranes during the forecast period. These are some other factors propelling the growth of breathable films and membranes market. Breathable films and membranes are used in products such as baby dippers, female products, tents, sleeping bag covers and other items.
