Freedonia Study: Specialty Films (2452)
Quote from article
Demand for specialty films is forecast to advance 4.7 percent per year to $7.6 billion in 2012.
Gains will be driven by the increasing need for high-performance
plastic films which offer such benefits as barrier properties, mechanical strength and
chemical resistance in packaging and construction applications. The penetration of
specialty films into new, high-growth market areas such as photovoltaic modules and
biodegradable bags will also bolster advances in demand. Packaging will remain the
dominant outlet for specialty films through 2012, accounting for 53 percent of demand.
