Thermoplastic films are thin laminate films produced from thermoplastic materials such as PVC, PET and PP through processes such as calendaring and extrusion. Thermoplastic films are applied on glass as well as wooden substrates, including for windows, doors and furniture. They also find application on other substrates. Thermoplastic films are available in a variety of designs with different textures, patterns, colors, opacities and transparency levels. The global market for thermoplastic films is projected to grow at a steady pace and create an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 4.7 Billion during the forecast period.
Based on material type, the thermoplastic films market has been classified into vinyl and polyvinyl chloride (PVC), PET, polypropylene, TPU, TPO and TPE. Among these, polyvinyl chloride holds a prominent share of the market of thermoplastic films in value terms. The low cost, easy availability and reliable application of polyvinyl chloride are projected to keep the segment in good standing in the thermoplastic films market throughout the forecast period. The PVC segment is projected to account for a 32.8% share of the total absolute $ opportunity created in the thermoplastic films market between 2018 and 2026. However, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polypropylene material segments of the thermoplastic films market are projected to gain market shares at fast rates during the forecast period, owing to their lower toxicity and environment-friendly nature. The polypropylene material segment of the thermoplastic films market is projected to grow 1.7 times by the end of the forecast period.
Based on application, the thermoplastic films market has been categorized in furniture, doors & windows, and automotive interior & exterior. The furniture segment accounted for a substantial share in the thermoplastic films market with growing consumption of cabinets & frames, furniture fronts, tables and ceiling applications. The doors & windows segment is projected to grow at a fast rate as compared to other application segments of the thermoplastic films market with increasing demand for decorative window films for aesthetic as well as UV protection and energy efficiency reasons. The doors & windows segment is projected to account for 43.5% of the total absolute $ opportunity created in the thermoplastic films market between 2018 and 2026.
Based on end user, the thermoplastic films market has been segmented into residential, commercial, transportation and institutional sectors. The commercial sector has been further divided into indoor and outdoor sub-segments. Commercial end users of thermoplastic films market encompass offices, retail & shopping centers, restaurants and hotels, among others. The commercial segment accounts for a prominent share of thermoplastic films market demand, and is expected to continue playing a significant role in market growth during the forecast period. The commercial segment is projected to account for more than a 44.2% share of the total absolute $ opportunity created in the thermoplastic films market during the forecast period.
