DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Polyvinyl Alcohol Films Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Region (North America, APAC), by Application (Detergent Packaging, Agrochemical Packaging), and Segment Forecasts, 2021-2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global polyvinyl alcohol films market size is expected to reach USD 551.59 million by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2021 to 2028.

Sustainable packaging is in high demand on account of its ability to aid in the reduction of landfills and compliance with stringent regulations related to packaging. In addition, sustainable packaging solutions have gained importance on account of safety, performance, and convenience in the packaging of products.

PVA films are widely used as eco-friendly polymers and have contributed significantly to the growth of the sustainable packaging industry. Increasing government initiatives to support green packaging is also expected to be the key driving factor for the market. However, volatile raw material prices are expected to be a key challenge to the growth over the forecast period.

The increasing global population, coupled with growing disposable income is offering high Purchase Power Parity (PPP) that has resulted in an improved standard of living. This is resulting in additional services being adopted, such as laundry services, in their daily routine.

The bags used in laundries are mostly manufactured using PVA films as it becomes easier for disposal. As a result, the booming laundry service industry is projected to contribute to the steady growth of the market. Growing hygiene consciousness among the consumers coupled with rising standards of living is propelling demand for detergents.

In addition, the growth witnessed by the hospitality industry is also contributing significantly to the production of detergents. This, in turn, is augmenting the overall demand for PVA films in the detergent packaging industry.

Agrochemical packaging is another major driver for the market. Agrochemicals, such as pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and other chemicals, are witnessing high demand in the agricultural sector. Thus, creating lucrative growth opportunities for PVA films.
