BOPP (Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene) Capacitor Film Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025. The 7~9 µm segment garnered the highest market share globally, accounting for nearly 30% of the market size in 2016.

Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene also called as BOPP, is the film that is stretched both mechanically and manually using cross direction technique. When polypropylene film is biaxially oriented, it becomes crystal clear but remains available in white and matte finishes. BOPP film is widely used as a rugged thermoplastic polymer and as a result of its various advantages this film has become one of the most popular and highly demanded films all across the globe. Biaxially oriented polypropylene films (BOPP films) nowadays are widely used dielectrics for AC capacitors in various application areas. BOPP films are usually used after being metallized with aluminum and zinc before using them for the production of film capacitors.The biaxially oriented polypropylene capacitor film market is anticipated to witness an impressive growth rate during the upcoming years.

Market Determinants

The continuous development of film capacitors, along with their self-healing properties and capacitance optimization have emerged out as the major factors leading to the tremendous growth of the BOPP capacitor film market since last two decades. The light weight and moderate cost of BOPP film is also stimulating its demand in the AC capacitor industry. Moreover, the extensive demand for film capacitors in numerous industries such as power electronics, automotive, robotics, locomotives, power grid and various others has brought up growth opportunities for the growth of the BOPP capacitor film market. In addition to this, high voltage range, high tolerance and impressive stability of capacitors made by BOPP films have contributed a lot in the acceleration of the market growth. However, failure in temperature resistance at high temperatures (150°C to160°C) might act as a major restraint for the market growth. Moreover, dielectric failure of capacitors occurred during major operations can result to massive damage and hence might act as a restraining factor for the market growth.
