Weatherable Polycarbonate Films Market: Overview

UV radiations can degrade the quality of a material if exposed for a long term. With the continuous depletion of the ozone layer, the exposure of the earth surface to UV radiations is gradually rising. Weatherable polycarbonate films are mostly adopted for protecting a material from long-term exposure to sunlight. The transparent weatherable polycarbonate films allow visible rays of the light to pass, while blocking the UV radiations. But presence of substitutes such as acrylic films is expected to restrain the demand for weatherable polycarbonate films globally.

Weatherable Polycarbonate Films Market: Dynamics

Along with competitive UV resistant properties of weatherable polycarbonate films, the excellent optical properties, high machinability, significant thermal stability, desirable electrical properties and chemical resistant properties of the weatherable polycarbonate films have increased their adoption in a large number of industries. Weatherable polycarbonate films and sheets have replaced glass in several applications such as wind shielding for automobiles, air crafts, and boats. Various developments in the processing technology for converting weatherable polycarbonate films and sheets have driven the global market for weatherable polycarbonate films, which include developments in the printing technology, lamination technology and cutting technology. Greenhouse roofing, electronic displays, and wind shielding are some of the key applications of weatherable polycarbonate films. Despite the amazing properties of weatherable polycarbonate films, the non-eco-friendly nature of the polycarbonate material is expected to restrain the growth of the market due to rising intolerance towards the conventional or oil-based plastic materials. The inclining demand for bio-degradable plastics and materials have impacted the global weatherable polycarbonate films market negatively. Down-gauging, which is decreasing the thickness of the weatherable polycarbonate films without affecting the desirable properties, is one of the key trends being followed in the global weatherable polycarbonate films market.
