DUBLIN, April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Textile Films Market by Type (Breathable and Non-breathable), By Material (PE, PP, PU, Others), By Application (Hygiene, Medical, Sportswear, Protective Apparel), and Region (North America, APAC, Europe, MEA, and South America) - Forecast to 2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The textile films market size was USD 4,213.8 million in 2017 and is projected to register a CAGR of 6.6% between 2018 and 2023.
Textile films are films used in clothing/apparel for providing a liquid barrier, but at the same time allowing moisture and vapor to pass through. They can be classified into breathable and non-breathable films. Breathable films are materials that allow the passage of vapor or moisture through their surface, while non-breathable films do not allow passage for either liquid or vapor. Textile films are used in the production of hygiene products such as diapers, sanitary napkins, medical products such as masks, gowns, and others, sportswear, and protective apparels.
This growth is attributed to the increased demand for textile films in manufacturing hygiene products such as diapers, sanitary napkins, and adult incontinence diapers. RKW Group (Germany), Covestro (Germany), Berry Global (US), Mitsui Hygiene (Thailand), Arkema (France), SWM International (US), and Toray Industries (Japan) are some of the major players in the market.
These companies adopted the strategies of investment & expansion and merger & acquisition between 2015 and 2018 to maintain their position in the market. The key players are also investing heavily in R&D capabilities to develop new and value-based products that will improve the quality of textile films. The companies are majorly focusing on the strategy of investment & expansion to meet the growing demand for textile films.
