They possess properties like high adjustable breathability, superior performance even at high extrusion speed, exceptional mechanical strength, and offers optimal adhesion to non-fabrics and woven materials.

Breathable films market is driven by expanding demand for hygiene consumer products. Breathable films are used in back-sheet materials that offer better skin breathability, comfort and reduce skin sores and rashes. Moreover, improving spending power of consumers and increasing awareness among consumers for hygienic products is encouraging the market growth of breathable film. Escalating demand for premium diapers in the developed as well as developing economies is also stimulating the growth of breathable film industry.

However, significant cost of the raw materials is expected to influence the market growth negatively. Breathable film market is currently witnessing its application for recovering and reducing wrinkles. Nonetheless, the market is also facing challenges with the degradation of diapers.
