Market Overview:

The global cellulose acetate film market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The market growth is attributed to the increasing demand for photographic films, tapes & labels, and other applications. Cellulose diacetate is the most commonly used type of cellulose acetate film in the market and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. North America dominates the global cellulose acetate film market followed by Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa respectively.

Global Cellulose Acetate Film Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Cellulose Acetate Film is a transparent and flexible material made from cellulose acetate, a derivative of wood pulp. Cellulose acetate film was first developed in the early 1900s as an alternative to more brittle and less transparent materials like glass and metal. It has been used for everything from movie film to eyeglasses frames. Today, cellulose acetate film is still used for many applications, including photography, printing, packaging, and medical supplies.

Cellulose Diacetate:

Cellulose diacetate or 2-diacetyl phosphate is a cellulosic compound and an acetate ester. It has the chemical formula C4H6O2 (CH3)2P. Cellulose diacetate is often referred to as “Diacy”, which is short for Diastereomeric Polymer.

Cellulose Triacetate:

Cellulose triacetate (C3TA) is a cellulose ether that is manufactured by chemical modification. It has an acetyl group and a three-carbon chain. Cellulose triacetate can be used as an alternative to cellulose acetate in applications such as cigarette filters, photographic films, and food packaging where non-toxic & water soluble properties are required.

The global C3TA market size was valued at USD 31 million in 2016.

Application Insights:

The photographic films segment dominated the global cellulose acetate film market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for color photography and its derivatives across the globe. Moreover, high demand for 35 mm cameras among amateurs and professionals is also expected to contribute toward segment growth over the forecast period.

Cellulose triacetate is used as a base material for manufacturing tapes & labels while cellulose diacetate is used as an adhesive in tapes & labels application owing to its excellent strength-to-weight ratio and heat resistance property. Thus, increasing consumption of tapes & labels on account of growing industrialization along with urbanization will drive product demand over the forecast period. In addition, stringent regulations regarding packaging coupled with rising consumer awareness regarding hazardous materials will further propel market growth during this period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing demand for cellulose acetate film in packaging applications. The growth can be attributed to rising product usage in food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetic industries. China led the regional market due to its rapidly growing pharmaceutical industry coupled with an increase in foreign investments for setting up manufacturing facilities by domestic players.

North America was estimated as the second-largest regional market after Asia Pacific on account of high demand for tapes & labels and photographic films products mainly from U.S.

Europe is also anticipated have a significant contribution towards growth on account of presence of major manufacturers such as BASF SE; EMD Millipore; AkzoNobel; Clariant International Ltd.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from packaging and printing industries for cellulose acetate film as it is a biodegradable and environment-friendly material.
  • Rising demand for cellulose acetate films in the medical sector as they are non-toxic, non-irritant, and have good transparency.
  • Growing use of cellulose acetate films in the automotive industry due to its properties such as dimensional stability, toughness, heat resistance, etc.
  • Increasing popularity of cellulose acetate films among consumers due to their lightweight nature and aesthetic appeal.
