The concentration of demand in a small number of end-user industries creates opportunities for companies that focus on developing bio-PET film solutions. However, it also creates challenges for companies that are trying to compete in a crowded market.

Type Insights

Laminating Film type sector dominated the market and accounted for a share of 33.9% in 2023. Bio-PET films are extensively used for laminating applications owing to their excellent optical properties, providing high transparency and clarity. This makes them ideal for laminating applications where maintaining the visibility and appearance of the underlying material is crucial, such as laminated cards, photos, and documents. In addition, bio-PET films have low shrinkage, allowing them to maintain their original size and shape even when exposed to heat or moisture. This dimensional stability is crucial in laminating to prevent warping or distortion of laminated items. Furthermore, these films are strong and durable, resistant to chemicals and temperature variations, and environmentally friendly.

The electrical insulating film segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 13.1% over the forecast period. The increasing adoption of bio-PET films in electrical insulation can be linked to the expansion of the electrical industry and the rising need for effective insulating materials.Bio-PET films have excellent dielectric properties, they are highly effective at insulating against electrical current. They have a high dielectric strength, making them suitable for use in high-voltage applications. These films exhibit a low dissipation factor, indicating that they have minimal energy loss when subjected to alternating electrical current. In addition, these films can withstand a wide range of temperatures, they have low thermal expansion and maintain their shape and size over a wide temperature range, these films are flexible and can be easily molded or shaped to fit the specific needs of electrical components.

Application Insights

The packaging segment dominated the market in 2023.The increasing demand for packaging, especially in the food sector, is driving the demand for bio-based food packaging plastics. This, in turn, is expected to propel the bio-PET market. Rising environmental concerns and regulations on single-use plastics are driving the demand for bio-based plastics in the packaging sectors. For instance, in July 2022, the government of India banned the manufacture, sale, use, import, stocking, and distribution of single-use plastic items. Such regulations are expected to drive the demand for alternative plastics, such as bio-PET, which can be degradable and environmentally friendly compared to the conventional plastics.
