Increasing government initiatives to support green packaging coupled with the biodegradable nature of PVA films is expected to drive demand over the next five years. Water soluble PVA films are used for packaging across various industries and the growing acceptance of PVA films for water soluble packaging is boosting demand. However, volatility in vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) prices has emerged as a key inhibitor to market growth. Pioneer companies in the PVA films market such as MonoSol LLC have been conducting extensive R&D activities in order to explore novel applications for PVA films. MonoSol LLC is currently developing food packaging grade for PVA films which the company states is non hazardous in nature.
