Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) Films Market is Thriving Worldwide 2020 | Trends, Growth and Profit Analysis, Forecast by 2026

Author : Ravi Chawat | Published Date : 2020-09-09 

The global polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) films market is accumulating heft proceeds over the years owing to increasing usage of the product for the production of molding compounds as well as water-soluble and sustainable packaging materials.

Traditional packaging materials, derived from petro-based polymers are used extensively across myriad industrial applications including construction, appliances and material packaging, among others. These materials demonstrate excellent thermal, mechanical and barrier properties alongside easy processability and economical costs, which make them the materials of choice for packaging applications.

In recent times, however, several solutions have emerged as a silver lining. Owing to persistent research and stringent efforts by regulatory authorities the world over, biopolymers are rapidly replacing petro-based polymers as the preferred packaging solution. Biopolymers are degradable, eco-friendly and sustainable materials that present a suitable solution to severe environmental concerns.

However, traditional biopolymers have certain limitations, including low heat resistance, high gas/water permeability, inability to withstand high processing and brittleness. These limitations can be overcome by blending or reinforcing these polymers with certain nanofillers.

One such reinforced biopolymer making immense strides in the packaging domain is polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) film market. PVA films are water-soluble, synthetic polymers which combine the best features of conventional and sustainable polymers. They possess robust thermal and mechanical properties alongside superior transparency and high resistance to oxygen permeation.

Unlike other biodegradable polymers, PVA films live up to their promises and exhibit not just excellent performance but also credible credentials pertaining to sustainability.

An overview of PVA films and their contribution to the packaging industry

Polyvinyl alcohol emerged on the scene in 1989, making significant progress in the packaging industry. The subsequent advent of water-soluble Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) films market the rise of a new measured delivery system, particularly in the packaging of agricultural products like pesticides, which were facing considerable exposure issues.

This new packaging system was soon touted as a revolutionary technology and kickstarted the advancement of sophisticated processed and films, used in measured delivery systems for liquid pesticides. The concept was thereafter adopted by the detergent industry as well, giving rise to the unit-dosing-based ‘liquid tabs’.

The polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) industry has witnessed tremendous evolution since, and has expanded to a more diverse portfolio, including packaging materials for a range of different products, from medical to industrial to food products.

Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) films market have strong resistance to grease, oil and solvents. For instance, polyvinyl alcohol compounds manufactured by MonoPol can be easily molded into various containers that can hold solvent liquids or oils, and yet will still dissolve when they come into contact with water.

These products also demonstrate exceptional aroma and oxygen barrier characteristics. For this reason, PVA films are used extensively in packaging materials for food to maintain freshness as well as for perfume containers, to contain the aromas until the product is used.

Also, unlike other unrecyclable packaging materials, PVA films can be easily dissolved in water during the paperboard recycling process, which already involves polyvinyl alcohol resins.

PVA films – characterizing future packaging technologies

In light of the plastic crisis gaining prominence across the globe, many enterprises are innovating ways to tackle the issue and develop sustainable alternatives to traditional packaging materials.

One such innovation is the development of a new water-soluble plastic bag by two Chilean entrepreneurs. The product, dubbed Solubag, is made using polyvinyl alcohol or PVA, and is designed to emulate the productivity offered by conventional single-use plastic bags in a more sustainable format. Solubags have been developed using components like natural gas and calcium carbonate, which helps eliminate pollution risk. Unlike petro-based plastic bags, which can take over 500 years to degrade, Solubags can dissolve within minutes once submerged in water, even leaving the water potable post dissolution.

Moving along the same lines is another product, known as the Non-Plastic™ Water-Soluble PVA Bag, comprising a patented 100% dissolvable component, free from harmful chemicals. The bags are designed to be used a traditional plastic bag, but unlike their counterparts which can pollute the seas and wildlife for over 100-500 years, can dissolve within 60-120 days when in contact with a body of water. Since the product does not contain any chemicals, it is also safe in case of ingestion by wildlife.
