Non-breathable Films Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Production, Consumption and Forecast 2020 to 2026

The Global Non-breathable Films Market size is expected to reach around US$ 31 bn by 2026 with CAGR of 7% during forecast period 2020 to 2026.

Non-breathable film is a flexible film that provides a barrier to air, moisture, and water vapour. Non-breathable films are used as a physical medium to restrict the passage of molecules. These films prevent the migration of oxygen, aroma, gas, oil, and moisture in and out of the packaging. Non-breathable films have monolayer or multi-layered structures to achieve superior barrier, and are characterized on the basis of oxygen transmission rate and water vapour transmission rate. The non-breathability offered by non-breathable films is paving the way for packaging manufacturers to provide enhanced shelf-life packaging solutions.

Asia Pacific and Europe to Dominate Market

Geographically, the Asia Pacific region holds nearly one-third of the total market value share of the global non-breathable films market, and is projected to witness substantial growth in the coming years. The non-breathable films market in China is anticipated to expand at a value CAGR of ~8% during the forecast period, due to the larger consumer base in the country, and the presence of a pool of manufacturers and suppliers in the country. The market in Europe is anticipated to expand 1.4x of its current value by the end of 2023. Germany, Italy, and the U.K. markets are expected to generate a cumulative incremental opportunity of ~US$ 1.8 Bn by 2029. The global non-breathable films market is projected to have an overall positive outlook over the forecast period.

Non-breathable Films Gain Popularity through Flexible Packaging Solutions

In 2019, packaging is estimated to account for ~91% of the value share of the non-breathable films market. Increasing number of merger and acquisition (M&A) deals have helped leading and emerging players expand their global footprint to achieve consolidation in the market. On a global level, 53 flexible packaging M&A deals were accounted for in 2017. Hence, manufacturers in the non-breathable films market are capitalizing on this growing trend.

The food industry accounts for the largest share in the packaging space. Increased application of flexible packaging is anticipated to shape the future of food and beverage packaging. The surging popularity of flexible packaging has led to increased food consumption on a global level. To attract more customers at supermarkets and convenience stores, manufacturers in the non-breathable films market are innovating aesthetically-vibrant and novel packaging designs.

Since food and beverages have a limited shelf life, manufacturers are streamlining their production procedures with conscious material selection, testing, and prototyping packaging solutions that meet the needs of stakeholders in the F&B space.

Manufacturers Relying More on Trademarked Products and Biodegradable Films

The non-breathable films market is highly fragmented. Hence, it is challenging for leading manufacturers to compete with substitute products offered by emerging market players. Variants of plastic are increasingly being used to produce non-breathable films. Since polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) are inexpensive raw materials, it is easy for emerging market players in the non-breathable films market to mimic the products offered by leading manufacturers. Hence, leading market players are trademarking their products to reduce the incidence of prototyping original products.

Due to increasing awareness about the hazardous use of plastic, manufacturers in the non-breathable films market are anticipated to witness reluctance from consumers regarding the utilization of plastic. To overcome this challenge, they are developing compostable/biodegradable films. These films help manufacturers comply with the regulations laid down by environment and health commissions. Increasing awareness about biodegradable films has led to the innovation of compostable baby diapers, sanitary napkins, adult diaper, and medical drapes.
