KEY FACTORS SHAPING SURFACE PROTECTION FILMS MARKET

High Demand from Construction Industry to Provide Exceptional Surface Protection

Surface protection films are predominantly used in the construction and interiors industry to provide temporary protection to hard surface flooring, synthetic carpets, and also guard against construction debris and damage. The global building and construction industry has exhibited healthy growth over the last few years, and this is expected to continue in the foreseeable future. Growing number of infrastructure development programmes such as urban expansion programs and rural housing schemes across emerging countries are anticipated to play a pivotal role in increasing the demand for surface protection films. Furthermore, the demand for these surface protection films is projected to rise in the future, owing to their consistent use for carpet and floor protection during commercial and residential painting applications.    

However, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is spreading across continents, with epidemiological numbers increasing exponentially. Witnessing the alarming situation, governments across the world have imposed lockdowns and restrictions on import and export activities in highly lucrative regions. As such, the construction industry has been under constant pressure due to the logistics paralysis. This, in turn, will have an adverse effect on the surface protection films market.

New Product Formulation Emerges as New Strategy in the Market

Prominent manufacturers is the surface protection films market are focusing on product development to reinforce their market positions. These manufacturers are innovating their product lines and offering innovative products with additional features to cater to a wider array of applications.  For instance,

  • In October 2019, Garware Polyester Limited, an India-based polyester films manufacturer, introduced self-healing paint protection films that offer the highest level of impact resistance.
  • Similarly, Dow Corning’s has manufactured silicone-enabled protective film solutions, especially designed for the growing electronic devices industry. The company has added desirable features such as low adhesion, low migration silicone PSAs, and high-performance silicone hard coating. These features are deemed suitable for modern touchscreen display panels, which have quickly gained market share
  • Nitto Denko Corporation’s surface protection films are specifically designed for laser processing LASERGUARD series, with emphasis on features such as no chlorine-based gas emissions during laser machining, smoother finishing, with no need of film peeling-off work, which used to be a requirement before processing in conventional protective films.

Asia Pacific to Remain Prominent in Surface Protection Films Market

The Asia Pacific surface protection films market is expected to be a prominent market during the forecast period. It is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period. The automotive sector is one of the key contributors to GDP and employment in the Asia Pacific region. As the region consists of many developing countries, it registers impressive GDP growth annually. Therefore, the surface protection films market has huge opportunities for growth in the Asia Pacific region.

Growth Drivers

  • Upsurge in construction and infrastructure development projects
  • Upswing in production of automobiles
  • Rapid growth of consumer electronics industry 

PE Continues to Gain Prominence

Manufacturers continue to bank on polyethylene (PE) for developing surface protection films, given their cost-effective and excellent resistance attributes. Although PE-based surface protection films will register around US$ 1 Bn in 2030, they are likely to falter in the years ahead, as polymer exhibits a low recyclability rate. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), on the other hand, offers greater rigidity and recyclability as compared to other materials, and thus, will experience notable upsurge in its usage for developing surface protection films. This study further states that, over half of surface protection films are either made from PE or PET. 

Western Europe in the Lead; APEJ to Follow Closely

Western Europe, capturing around one-third of overall market value, continues to engage surface protection film manufacturers. While Germany is shaping the regional market growth, the market in Spain is exhibiting rapid growth. Further, the U.K. will outperform France, in terms of value creation, towards the end of the projection period. Market players are also driving their attention towards Asia Pacific (excluding Japan), given the upswing in production of automobiles and top-line growth of the consumer electronics industry, especially in China, and India.

Product Innovation - Key Differentiating Strategy

Players in the surface protection films market must focus on innovating their product lines in tandem with additional features to cater to a wider array of applications. For instance, Dow Corning’s has manufactured silicone-enabled protective film solutions, especially for the flourishing electronic devices industry. The company offers additional features such as low adhesion and migration silicone PSAs, as well as high-performance silicone hard coating, which are suitable for touchscreen display panels. Manufacturers that create distinctive capabilities and invest in product innovation will be better positioned for increased margins.

High preference for 50-100 microns thickness
