We are looking forward to meet up with experts from the film sector at this brand new international conference. Let's discuss the trends, challenges and opportunities facing the breathable films industry.

Breathable Films 2018

Breathable films have major applications in everyday life. They are used in food packaging, medical products such as surgical gloves, or hygienic products such as diapers. Among the various types of breathable films, polyethylene-based are the dominate composite by accounting for appr. 55 % share of the total market. Experts estimate a steady growth of the breathable films market over the next 5 years. One reason is the rising demand for processed food, another the increased awareness for healthcare and hygiene, especially in developing countries. Therefore, the consumption of medical articeles manufactured from breathable films is higher than ever.

For all companies involved in the manufacture, supply and specification of breathable films such as end users, manufacturers, converters or suppliers, the Breathable Films 2018 in Cologne provides an excellent platform. The conference focuses on the latest global trends and technical developments within the industry and looks at the polymers & additives mainly used in breathable films such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyurethane, PTFE amongst others.
