The protective films market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.23% from 2017 to 2022

The protective films market is projected to reach USD 17.57 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.23% from 2017 to 2022. Increasing demand for protective films from the building and construction industry and the transportation industry especially from the automotive sector are the major drivers for the growth of the protective films market. The difficulty in recycling polymer based protective films act as a restraint for the growth of the protective films market.

Among the classes of protective films, adhesive-coated protective films are projected to account for largest market share during the forecast period

The adhesive-coated segment protective films market is projected to account for the largest share amongst the different classes of protective films. Adhesive-coated protective films based on common polymers such as polyethylene, propylene, polyvinyl chloride, and polyethylene terephthalate, among others, belonging to the polyolefin class are the most commonly used protective films. These are easier to manufacture and are lower priced, which makes adhesive-coated protective films a more popular choice than self-adhesive protective films.

Among types, polyethylene protective films are projected to account for the largest share during the forecast period

The polyethylene protective films segment is projected to account for the largest share during the forecast period from 2017 to 2022. Suitability with different adhesives based on water, acrylic, solvent, and others coupled with the lower cost of polyethylene films makes them a more popular type of protective film. These are also suitable for a majority of the substrates where protective films are applied. These factors are leading to the high demand for the polyethylene type of protective films.
