Specialty Films

As Quoted In CEE Packaging

US demand for specialty films will grow 4.7 percent annually through 2012. The penetration of specialty films into new, high-growth market areas such as photovoltaic modules and biodegradable bags will bolster demand. Rapid adoption of modified atmosphere packaging will further fuel gains, as will improved processing methods in film coating and metallization.

This study analyzes the $6 billion US specialty film industry. It presents historical demand data (1997, 2002, 2007), and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by film type (e.g., polyolefin, polyvinyl chloride, polyester, polyvinyl butyral, nylon, ethylene vinyl alcohol), function (e.g., barrier, decorative, microporous, safety and security, conductive, light control, biodegradable) and market (e.g., packaging, construction, personal care products).

The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 industry players, including Bemis, DuPont and Sealed Air.
