The last decade has witnessed a steady rise in global awareness about cutting down on carbon emissions. This in turn has led to heightened awareness among the general populace and governments alike towards adoption of greener and renewable sources of energy. Solar energy being the most widely available and feasible source of energy, has led to rampant growth f other solar energy industry. Specialty and high performance films are used in photovoltaic cell used in solar systems. Stringent environmental regulations, for instance in 2005, EPA implemented policy to lower the airborne mercury up to 7% by 2018, from coal fired power plant. Moreover with increasing consumer inclination towards off-grid power solutions is fueling growth of the solar energy industry. This in turns creates a highly favorable growth scenario for the global specialty and high performance films market. Furthermore, volatility of crude oil price has a positive impact on renewable energy sources, which is expected to fuel growth of the electronics and semiconductors industry. Increasing urbanization and mall culture in cities is in turn leading to burgeoning growth in owing the demand for packaged and disposable food products. This creates high demand for meat packaging and vacuum packaging, which would fuel growth of the barrier films segment in the market. Moreover, the growing demand for specialty and high performance film in automotive industry to protect sunroof, windows, windshields, and dashboard is expected to augment market growth.
Rising construction and renovation activities in developing countries includes China, India and Brazil is augmenting the market growth. Rapid urbanization owing the demand for specialty and high performance film in the construction sector which includes to protect the buildings from sunlight, UV, and safety & security is propelling the market growth. Moreover, North America and Europe are projected to witness growth in the construction sector, due to continuously increasing infrastructure renovation activities in the region. These factors would collectively support growth of the market.
