The water soluble films market is estimated to grow from USD 364 million in 2020 to USD 476 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.5%. The water soluble films market is driven mainly by growing pharmaceutical industry. However, is high cost is expected to restrain the market growth.
The major application of flame retardants is in detergent packaging, water treatment chemical packaging, food packaging, agrochemical packaging, and pharmaceutical packaging. Water soluble films are manufactured from polyvinyl resins and are synonymously called PVA/PVOH films. These films are used for specific unit dose packaging of detergents, agrochemicals, water treatment chemicals, food ingredients, pharmaceutical drugs, and dyes. Apart from these, the films are used in embroidery and laundry bag manufacturing.
Cold water soluble films expected to be the fastest-growing type of the water soluble films market, in terms of value, between 2020 and 2025
Cold water soluble films accounted for the largest share of the overall water soluble films market, in terms of value, in 2019. There are three sub-types of cold water soluble films, namely, type Z, type C, and type W. They are categorized based on water temperature. Type Z water soluble films can dissolve at 5oC and above, type C can dissolve at 15oC and above, and type W can dissolve at 25oC and above. Cold water soluble films are used in many applications. Detergent packaging is the largest application for this type of water soluble film. Due to its use in a wide range of applications, cold water soluble films dominated the overall market.
The detergent packaging estimated to account for the largest share of the overall water soluble films market, in terms of value, between 2020 and 2025
Detergent packaging is the largest application of water soluble films, followed by agrochemical packaging. The need for convenient handling and less wastage of products in the developed markets will boost the use of water soluble film for detergent packaging. The increasing population in developing countries demand better crop yield to meet the demand for food, which entail proper, safer, and better use of agrochemicals for better agricultural output. The increasing awareness about the use of eco-friendly products in developing nations is projected to stimulate the growth of water soluble film. The demand from other applications such as food packaging, pharmaceuticals, and laundry bags, and the rising awareness about environment-friendly products are driving the demand for water soluble films globally
