US demand for specialty films is forecast to advance 5.2 percent per year to $8.0 billion in 2017. Gains will be driven by the increasing need for high-performance plastic films that offer barrier properties, mechanical strength, and chemical resistance in packaging applications. Increasing use in small, but high-growth market areas, such as photovoltaic modules and biodegradable packaging, will also bolster advances, as will a rebound in the construction market. Packaging is the largest market for specialty films, accounting for two-thirds of overall demand.
