Water soluble (PVA/PVOH) film is commercially made from polyvinyl alcohol resins and due to its water soluble property, is widely used for water soluble small dose packaging of detergents, agrochemicals, water treatment chemicals, dyes, and food. Apart from these applications, water soluble (PVA/PVOH) film is used in embroidery and laundry bag manufacturing.

North America is the global leader of the water soluble films and this dominance is expected to continue till 2020. The U.S. is the key market in the region, accounting for more than half of the demand for water soluble film in North America, followed by Canada and Mexico where demand is growing steadily. The demand of water soluble film for detergent, agrochemical, and water treatment chemical packaging will grow due to increased awareness among consumers regarding the use of green products and also due to stringent environmental protection regulations in developed countries. The demand of water soluble film will rise at a steady phase in Asia-Pacific region on account of rapid urbanization and rise in the manufacturing plants in the region.

Among various applications of water soluble film, detergent packaging dominated the market with more than 37% of the total water soluble market share in 2014. Agrochemical packaging is another major application, which is expected to grow significantly, from 2015 to 2020. Other application types of water soluble film include water treatment chemical, packaging which is also expected to grow at a considerable rate in the coming years.

This study estimates the market size for PVA/PVOH water soluble film and projects the same till 2020. As a part of quantitative analysis, the study segments the market by material type, application and at country level with the current market estimation and forecast till 2019. The countries covered in the report are China, Japan, India, South Korea, Brazil, Germany, U.K., France, Spain, Mexico, Canada, and U.S. The segmentation by material includes polyvinyl alcohol and xylan. The segmentation by application includes detergent packaging, agrochemical packaging, water treatment chemical packaging, dye packaging, food packaging, embroidery, laundry bags, and pharmaceutical. Further as a part of qualitative analysis, the research provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, and opportunities.
