Breathable backsheet films: serving the growing hygiene market more efficiently

Backsheet films are a growth market. Around 590,000 tons are used each year and the number is on the rise. Breathable films used in products such as diapers make up some 50% of this total. “Experts estimate a CAGR of around 4.4% for the hygiene market up to 2020,” explains Ali Hassan, Hygiene Market Specialist at engineering firm W&H. Diaper and incontinence products seem to have a particularly high potential. “Factors such as our aging society, the growing acceptance of these kinds of products and higher global availability, particularly in developing regions, are the driving forces behind this,” adds his colleague Dirk Dreier. Where breathable backsheet films have traditionally been made predominately using cast film extrusion, the experts at W&H are now advising customers to convert to blown film extrusion systems. “We are seeing a clear trend of companies moving to blown film extrusion technology for their backsheet films”, says Hassan.
