A wide range of coated plastic films are available in the market. These type of films have application in wide range of applications. Films coated with silicon are often referred to as siliconised films. Siliconizing means coating material with a thin layer of silicone polymer material. These films play a major role in the packaging industry. The silicon coated films are available in three basic form: one side coated, two side coated and two side differential coated. The silicone coating is basically done on polyethylene, polypropylene, polyesters and poly vinyl chloride films. These films are used in wide range of end-use industries such as medical, adhesives & sealants, and various industrial applications. In the medical industry, these siliconised films are often used as process liners for the manufacturing of medical films, foams, adhesives and gels. Furthermore they are also used as release liners for wound dressings, electrodes, transdermal patches and ostomy products.
Read Report Overview @
The siliconised films market can be segmented into three basic categories: by film type, by coating and by application. The film type segment can be further sub-segmented into: siliconised polyester films, siliconised polyvinyl chloride films, siliconised polypropylene films, siliconised high density polyethylene films, siliconised low density polyethylene films and siliconised medium density polyethylene films. The siliconised polyester film are used as a release film and for adhesive liners. The silicon coated polypropylene and polyethylene films are used in applications such as automotive, insulating tapes, shingles, sealing tapes and self-adhesive materials. Furthermore siliconised polypropylene films are used for demanding applications where many weaker liners would tend to be damaged or destroyed, for example during the production of heavy weight metal foil based tapes. The siliconised HDPE film has high elongation making it suitable to applications where the liner will be thermoformed or during processing.
In terms of applications siliconised liners play a vital part in the manufacture and delivery of various medical devices. The continuously developing medical device industry is anticipated to drive the siliconised films market in the forecast period. Furthermore, on account of augmenting hygiene products market, the siliconised films market is anticipated to rise significantly during the forecast period. The siliconised films are applications such as sanitary napkins and dippers. Moreover, single wrap packaging for sanitary napkins is getting smaller and thinner, thus pushing the lightweight and fully siliconised packaging film market for sanitary napkins. Besides, these siliconised films are popularly used in wide range of adhesive and sealing applications such as self-adhesive foil laminates as a carrier - "liner" for labels, protection of adhesive coated insulating materials, flashing tape, pipe wrap tape and etc, which is further expected to enhance the demand for siliconised films. Additionally on account of rising residential construction segment, these use of siliconised films in the shingles application is anticipated to further grow
In terms of geography, the global siliconised films market can be segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific dominate the siliconised films market The siliconised films market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand notably during the forecast period due to significant expansion of the hygiene products market in countries such as China, India, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan.. North America and Europe are anticipated to exhibit significant growth in the siliconised films market. This is on account of presence of advanced technologies and continued research & development activities in the field of medical devices. Latin America is anticipated to offer high growth opportunities for the siliconised films market, due to the considerable expansion of the medical industry in the region. Middle East & Africa is also holds a significant market share in the siliconised films market.
