Global Vapor Permeability Films Market 2017-2021

Global Vapor Permeability Films Market 2017-2021

About Vapor Permeability Films

The vapor permeable films (breathable films) are manufactured with a blend of polymers and mineral fillers providing a microporous structure that helps in vapor transmission. These are laminated using a non-woven web, with the help of adhesives. The breathability of vapor permeable films is measured in terms of MVTR (moisture vapor transmission rate). The raw materials used for the manufacturing of these films are polyester, polyethylene, polypropylene, and other materials.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global vapor permeability films market to grow at a CAGR of 8.45% during the period 2017-2021.
