Breathable film is extruded from the extruder T-dies, and in which polyethylene resin is compounded with CaCO3. Due to its fine surface pores, it is permeable to air but not to liquid (sort of water).
The Breathable film is very useful as it allows transmission of gases but it remains water proof. Major uses include the back sheet of diapers and sanitary napkins, disposable work cloth, etc.
For industry structure analysis, the Breathable film industry is fragmented. A variety of manufacturers ranging from large multinational corporations to small privately owned companies compete in this industry. The top five producers account for about 30.67% of the revenue market. Regionally, Asia is the biggest production area of Breathable film.
Asia occupied 45.21% of the production market in 2015. It is followed by North America and Europe, which respectively have around 28.09% and 18.59% of the global total industry. Other countries have a small amount of production. Geographically, Asia was the largest consumption market in the world, which took about 43.06% of the global consumption volume in 2015. North America shared 22.88% of global total.
For price trend analysis, a key variable in the performance of Breathable film producers is raw material costs, specifically the speed at which any increase can be passed through to customers. The price of the major raw material varies according to the CaCO3 price. This year, as the downturn of global CaCO3 industry, the Breathable film price would keep decreasing for at least the following 5 years.
For forecast, the global Breathable film revenue would keep increasing with annual growth rate with 5~8%, and a little higher speed in China. We tend to believe that this industry still has a bright future, considering the current demand of Breathable film. As for product prices, the slow downward trend in recent years will continue in the next few years, as competition intensifies. Similarly, there will be fluctuations in gross margin.
The global Breathable Film market was 95 million US$ in 2018 and is expected to 110 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 1.3% between 2019 and 2025.
