The Freedonia Group did a study that estimated the growth of the specialty films market at a rateof 5.5% a year to $7.3 billion in 2007. Conductive film demand will rise 71% to $1 billion in the next 5 years. Freedonia says a large driving force behind this is the need for films used in the production of flexible printed circuits and panel displays. In electronics, conductive film is very important and is used to make static dissipative packaging, coated films, and laminated films. Still the largest, but slowest to expand, is the barrier film market. These are used most in the food packaging industry says Freedonia. The market is expected to grow slowly at 28% over 5 years to $3.3 billion. Other films used for safety, security, and light control have small market shares, but are expected to grow at an above-average rate. The study says decorative and breathable films have a mature market and will rise modestly.
