Breathable Films Market by Type (Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyurethane Polyether),Technology (Microporous, Monolithic) End-Use Industry (Hygiene, Medical, Food Packaging, Construction, Fabric), and Region

The breathable films market is estimated to be USD 2.2 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 3.3 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 8.2% between 2019 to 2024. The breathable films market is driven by growing awareness regarding health and hygiene and increasing usage of breathable films in premium hygiene products in both developed and developing countries.

Breathable films are thin films with a characteristic property of allowing vapor to pass through while retaining liquid. They are manufactured using various polymers such as polyethylene (PE), polyurethane (PU), polypropylene (PP), and polyester along with mineral fillers such as calcium carbonate. The presence of mineral fillers gives breathable films a microporous structure. Breathable films are also manufactured using polymers such as co-poly amide (CoPA), polyether block amide (PEBA), and polyether ester. These are monolithic in nature and have properties such as elasticity, permeability, and strength.
