Industrial Films Market Trends




  • Growing construction activities and projects to propel the market growth




The future expansion of the market is anticipated to be driven by rising construction activity and projects in developing nations. A business that uses construction materials in building design, development, and construction is engaged in construction activities. Buildings and commercial offices are constructed using industrial films to produce distinctive lighting and aesthetic effects. For instance, in November 2020, Level Set, a US-based provider of construction data, reported that $276 billion had been spent on residential buildings in 2019 and $92 billion had been spent on commercial construction overall in the country. Therefore, the market's expansion is driven by the rising construction activities and projects in emerging nations. Thus, this factor is driving the market CAGR.


Furthermore, industrial films were used in agriculture, increasing productivity and efficiency. As a result, they are now used much more frequently in agriculture. Industrial films have several uses in the farming and gardening sectors of the agricultural industry, including greenhouses, silage, mulching, walk-in tunnels, and low tunnel covers, among others. The world's population is expanding quickly, boosting the agriculture sector's expansion. China, the United States, India, and Brazil are among the biggest agricultural producers in the world. In these nations, the use of industrial films in agriculture is expanding quickly. As a result, it is anticipated that throughout the forecast period,  demand will increase.


Furthermore, bi-axially oriented films are in high demand due to their widespread use in industrial and packaging applications. Polyethylene terephthalate, polypropylene, and polystyrene are the three main polymers used to produce biaxially oriented films. Bi-axially oriented polypropylene film has great abrasion and chemical resistance, good clarity, resistance to UV light, and a smooth surface. The demand for these films is primarily driven by their flatness, improved strength at low gauges, and printability in various sectors.


However, in the near future, increased demand for high-value-added products like smartphones is projected to increase the popularity of industrial films. Consumer devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops are selling more due to rising disposable income, rising affordability, and falling prices. Due to their flexibility and transparency, they mostly create cover films for electrical devices. The need for industrial films is anticipated to increase as a result. So, it is anticipated that this aspect will accelerate industrial films market revenue ly.


Industrial Films Market Segment Insights


Industrial Films Material Type Insights


The industrial films market segmentation has been segmented by material type into linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyamide and others. The linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) segment dominated the industrial films market data in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. LLDPE is predicted to be more impact and puncture resistant than LDPE, increasing demand among the agricultural and industrial packaging sectors and industries. These films' greater tensile strength, higher impact resistance, and material conservation have enabled converters to produce thinner films without sacrificing strength while saving money and resources.


Industrial Films End-Use Insights


The industrial films market segmentation, based on end-use, transportation, construction, industrial packaging, agriculture, medical and others. The agriculture segment dominated the industrial films market revenue in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Growing demand for agricultural films, such as greenhouse films, mulch films, silage films, low tunnel films, soil sterilization and fumigation films, packaging and protection films, and films for water reservoirs, is being fueled in part by the desire to increase crop yield. Hence, this would have a positive impact on market growth for industrial films.
