Global Elastic Films Market – Overview
In recent years, owing to growing awareness about hygiene and health in developing economies like China, India etc., manufacturers prefer using elastic films for producing premium hygiene products like diapers in order to provide better ease, absorbency, and leakage resistance. High birth rates in emerging economies are expected to drive the demand for the global elastic films market. In addition, the aging population coupled with high per capita GDP in developed countries such as Japan, Italy, Germany, and the U.S is expected to drive the incontinence hygiene products market, thereby increasing the demand for elastic films. Elastic films are used in the layers of diapers. Relative moisture and heat within the diaper or other sanitized products such as adult diapers and sanitary pads can be reduced by using durability of elastic films. Elastic films have been extensively used in healthcare industry for hygiene products. Elastic films available in the market are normally made up of materials like ethylene based elastomers, propylene based elastomers, styrene-block copolymers and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) based. Elastic films are used in diapers for adhesive closing systems such as elastic mechanical tapes and frontal tapes. Furthermore, elastic films are available in the market made from cast film extrusion and blown film extrusion. By elongating the elastic films and using superior materials companies are producing a specific level of stretch-ability that they can be used for their distinct applications.
Global Elastic Films Market – Dynamics
The elastic films market is expected to grow significantly on the backdrop of rising awareness regarding personal health and hygiene. In September 2018, Kimberly-Clark developed a specialty co-extruded elastic films, which is now being used across its Huggies baby diaper range.
