High-Performance Films: Asia-Pacific Markets

High-Performance Films: Asia-Pacific Markets

Report Scope:

High-performance films are thin-gauge, mostly extruded or solution cast polymer sheets that are more expensive than traditional and conventional plastic films for using them in different end-use industries. These films are used primarily for their performance characteristics, but not their price with emphasis on the markets and products with the greatest potential for growth of these plastic films.

High-performance films are generally fabricated (or converted) in relatively small volumes (compared to commodity films). Much of their value is created after the film is extruded. The main focus of the report is on high-performance resins and their chemistries, including the following -
- Polyesters, primarily polyethylene terephthalate (PET). In this report, PET is interchangeable with “polyester.”
- Polyolefin-based specialty film resins.
- Polyamides (nylons).
- Polycarbonates (PCs).
- Bioplastics, a newer group of plastics.
- Fluoropolymers.
- Acrylic films based on PMMA chemistry.
- Polyimides (PIs).
- Cyclic olefin copolymers (COCs).
- Polyethylene naphthalate (PEN).
- Liquid crystal polymers (LCPs).
- Polysulfones.
- Polyetherimides.

This report does not review basic polyolefins, such as polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), because they are true commodities used in commodity films applications such as grocery and garbage bags. This report also excludes other commodity resins like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polystyrene. However, specialty polyolefin-based films are included. Specialty films include ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), ionomers, polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC), polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) and polymethyl pentene (PMP).

This report discusses fluoropolymer films, which includes the following -
- Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
- Polyvinyl fluoride (PVF).
- Fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP).
- Polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE).
- Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF).
- Perfluoroalkoxy (PFA).
- Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE).
- Ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE).
