This market research study identifies Dupont Teijin Films, Polyonics, SKC, Sumitomo Chemical, and TORAY INDUSTRIES as the leading players in the global polyethylene naphthalate market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application (premium automotive tires, electronics, packaging, beverage bottling, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, Europe, and MEA).

Overview of the global polyethylene naphthalate market

Technavio’s market research report identifies that the increasing demand for polyethylene naphthalate from the packaging industry will be one of the primary growth drivers for the global polyethylene naphthalate market till 2021. Polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) is widely used in flexible food packaging because it is suitable for bottling beverages that are vulnerable to oxidation such as carbonated drinks, beer, and wine. It aids in longer shelf life as it can survive numerous high-temperature washes. It also provides superior durability, which is necessary for numerous refilling cycles. With the rising demand for beverages such as wine, carbonated drinks, non-carbonated drinks, and beer and dairy products such as milk yogurt, buttermilk, and condensed milk, the rigid packaging industry is witnessing significant growth. This in turn, will boost the demand for PEN from the rigid packaging industry, fueling market growth. Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of more than 8% by 2021.

One of the key trends that will drive the growth prospects for the global polyethylene naphthalate market during the projected period is the rising application of polyethylene naphthalate in solar cell protection. PEN is used as a substrate for new solar cells. It is highly suitable for the formation of superstrates due to its transparency. Moreover, it also enhances the performance of the products due to its good optical and suitable surface features and good electrical properties.
