Global PET Film Market is segmented By Application Type (Flexible packaging and food contact applications, Solar, marine, and aviation applications, Covering over the paper, Insulating material, Electronic and acoustic applications, and Others), and By Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) – Share, Size, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2022-2029


Market Overview

The Global "PET Film Market" is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 5.3% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Polyester or polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a high-performance, crystal clear thermoplastic made from ethylene glycol and dimethyl terephthalate (DMT). Compared with other common plastic films, PET film has higher tensile strength, excellent dimensional stability, low moisture absorption, and good retention of physical properties over a fairly wide temperature range. It also has superior UV resistance, excellent electrical properties, good optical clarity, high gloss, and good gas barrier but only moderate moisture barrier properties. It is the ideal film for quality printing and lamination and a good choice for high-performance plastic films and sheets. It has a relatively high melting point, making it suitable for applications that require sterilization at high temperatures.

Market Dynamics

The rising demand for flexible packaging primarily drives the global PET Film Market. The driving force for flexible packaging is the increase in demand for convenient packaging needed in the food & beverages and pharmaceutical industries. And the other factor for the growth of the PET film market is the rising demand for the electronics devices market such as mobile, LCDs and others. The panels display in these electronic devices use Pet films which indeed drives the market for PET films.

However, due to volatility in crude oil prices, the PET resins' raw material hinders the PET film market.

Segmentation Analysis

By application type, the global PET Film Market is segmented into Flexible packaging and food contact applications, Solar, marine and aviation applications, covering over the paper, Insulating material, Electronic and acoustic applications, and Others. Flexible packaging and food contact applications have high dominance in this segment due to PET film's property having a low odor, high chemical resistance, and inertness, making it suitable for packaging applications under FDA regulations. Followed by First Grade and Qualified Grade.

Geographical Analysis

By geography, the global PET Film Market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, South America, and the Middle East and Africa (MEA).

APAC holds the largest market share for PET Film due to rapid industrialization and infrastructural development activities and the high production and sales of electrical & electronics products in the region. A developing nation like China and India has high demands for the PET Film market. Using in the panel displays in electronics devices like mobile, LCD and others has made APAC hold most of the market share. However, North America is after APAC in terms of market share of PET Film Market, followed by Europe.

Competitive Analysis

Key players adopt strategies such as Acquisition, mergers, joint ventures, and investment in R&D to stand out as strong competitors in the market. The PET Film market is highly fragmented. The major players include Dupont Teijin Films, Jindal Poly Films, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings, SKC, and Toray. Other key players in the market include Tredegar, KOLON Industries, Ningbo Sun plastics, Coveme, and Jiangsu Shuangxing.

In June 2018, Indorama Ventures Ltd. entered a joint venture agreement with India's Dhunseri Petrochem Ltd. (Dhunseri) to acquire its 450ktpa PET production facility in Egypt. The facility, which belongs to the Egyptian Indian Polyester Company SAE (EIPET), is located in the Ain Sokhna free trade zone, northwest of Suez.

In December 2017, Mitsubishi Polyester Film constantly developed new film types to meet its customers' market needs and requirements. One of our new developments is Hostaphan® TC, a heat conductive PET film. Electric currents create heat as waste energy. Getting the heat out is a big issue in many electrical devices like electro motors, engines, generators, and transformers. Polymeric films offer the electric insulation performance needed in such devices but generally very bad heat conductors. Hostaphan® TC is a thermally conductive film with twice the heat conductivity λ of standard PET film while maintaining good insulation properties.
