  • Published: November 2018
  • ID: SMRC17760

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Water Soluble Films Market is accounted for $261.98 million in 2017 and is expected to reach $450.22 million by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2017 to 2026. Rising demand for water soluble film from various end uses and implementation of sustainable packaging by the packaging industry are some of the factors propelling the market growth. However, high cost of production is restraining the market growth. One of the major opportunities in the market is Innovations in the water-soluble films.

Water-soluble films are biodegradable films that are formed from polyvinyl resin. Water soluble film dissolves completely in cold and hot water. PVA material is a water soluble resin. These are non-toxic, biodegradable and it gives good barrier properties to odor, aromas, bacteria and gases. Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) films have superior water solubility and it can dissolve at different temperatures with different dissolving rate. It used in packaging of dyes, detergents and agrochemicals. It is used for industrial applications due to its gas barrier protection and resistance to oil & organic solvents. Moreover, they are used in the manufacture of disposal bags, laundry bags and shopping bags.

Amongst End User, Packaging segment accounted held significant market share during the forecast period. The key players in this market are investing in finding innovative applications for food packaging taking into consideration its features, such as good gas barrier and printability properties. Furthermore, as the film can be printed with water-soluble inks, it is likely to add information regarding the food products. By region, North America holds a dominant position during the forecast period owing to the rising use of advanced technology in U.S. which has key manufacturing units related to food and chemicals, across the globe.
