Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) film is widely used for the packaging and production of polarizer film. Polyvinyl alcohol film is a water soluble biodegradable film and facilitates water soluble small dose packaging of detergents, water treatment chemicals, agrochemicals, and dyes. Small water soluble doses provides ease-of-use and avoids human contact from the inside material.

Apart from packaging applications, PVA film is also used for laundry bags and embroidery applications where the film is used as water soluble film. Polarizer is another major application of PVA films where the film facilitates polarization properties. Polarizer film is made using PVA and TAC (triacetate) films as raw material and is an essential component in liquid crystal display (LCD) panel.

This report divides the polyvinyl alcohol films market by water soluble and polarizer applications. For water soluble application, the market is further segmented into detergent, agrochemical, water treatment chemical, embroidery, dyes, and laundry bags applications. In recent years polyvinyl alcohol film has gained attention globally due to its salient features such as water solubility and ease-of-use in applications such as detergents and agrochemical packaging. Therefore, there is an influx of players vying for a share in this market.

The global PVA films market is studied by key applications and geography. Asia-Pacific is the largest producer and North America is the largest consumer of Polyvinyl alcohol films for water soluble applications. In 2011, estimated production share of Asia-Pacific was 60% while consumption share of North America was 34%. From a growth perspective, Asia-Pacific is the key market since the region has the highest growth rate of PVA film consumption for next five years.
