Breathable films are thin films with a characteristic property of allowing vapor to pass through while retaining liquid. They are manufactured using various polymers such as polyethylene (PE), polyurethane (PU), polypropylene (PP), and polyester along with mineral fillers such as calcium carbonate. The presence of mineral fillers gives breathable films a microporous structure. Breathable films are also manufactured using polymers such as co-poly amide (CoPA), polyether block amide (PEBA), and polyether ester. These are monolithic in nature and have properties such as elasticity, permeability, and strength.

Breathable films are used in a wide range of applications such as hygiene, construction/roofing underlayment, housing wrap, disposable protective garments, surgical gowns and drapes, fabrics to make sportswear and defense jackets, and in food packaging.

Expansions, investments, and agreements were the key strategies adopted by the major players to achieve growth in the global breathable films market between 2016and 2019. The major players in the breathable films market are RKW Group (Germany), Arkema (France), Mitsui Hygiene Materials (Thailand), and Fatra (Czech Republic).

In November 2017, Arkema announced an investment plan for USD 354.6 million over five years for the bio-sourced polyamide 11 chain in Asia.
