Global Heat Transfer Film Market - 2021-2028
Heat Transfer Film Market Overview
Heat transfer is a method of thermal engineering that concerns the generation, conversion, use and exchange of thermal energy between physical systems. Heat transfer is divided into various mechanisms, such as thermal convection, thermal radiation, thermal conduction and energy transfer by phase changes. Engineers also examine the transfer of mass of differing chemical species, either hot or cold, to achieve heat transfer. Moreover, technology and innovation are the driving forces that have changed the current lifestyle. New products are significantly developed to help ease life further. Heat transfer films are helping consumers survive unfavorable climatic conditions. Over the years, technology has modified the heat transfer films, which are now available in different types, with various features, to fulfill the demands. Some of the features of heat transfer films, such as effectiveness & efficiency, are driving the global heat transfer films market.
The global heat transfer film market is estimated to reach US$ YY million by 2028 from the recorded market size of worth US$ YY million in 2020, growing at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Heat Transfer Film Market Dynamics

Fluctuating cost of raw material and restriction on plastic is expected to hinder the market growth
However, fluctuating cost of raw material and restrictions on plastic material in some developed and developing economies is expected to hinder the growth to an extent during the forecast period. The pollution control boards across the globe are resisting companies from using plastic which are restraining companies from or forcing companies to go through stringent procedures to use plastic as a raw material for the film market.
The disruptions in supply and chain due to COVID and also in general the rising costs of logistics is creating price rise of the end product forcing companies to have a smaller margin.
Heat Transfer Film Market Segment Analysis
By end-user, the market is segmented into textile, construction, furniture/wooden, metal, healthcare, food & beverages, personal care and others.
The growing demand for modern and heat-protected fabric prints & textures, food & beverages, healthcare, and heat transfer films or vinyl have gained specific traction. Heat transfer vinyl refers to a specialty film applied on certain fabrics such as polyester, cotton and cotton-poly blend to imprint designs or logos on that particular material. The heat transfer structure mainly comprises three essential components: transfer film, paper release liner, and adhesive material. The transfer film is manufactured using polyurethane and polyvinyl chloride.
Furthermore, opaque heat transfer films such as metallic, flocks, glossy, glitter and reflective are generally used in T-shirt printing. PS & PET are the most common materials utilized for the production of the release liner. Heat presses are employed to apply heat transfer vinyl on any fabric material at approx. 3-4 bar of pressure and at 150 degrees centigrade. Nylon & other textiles with hydrophobic impregnation are not appropriate for heat transfer vinyl applications.
Moreover, cotton and cotton blend textile & apparel are extensively printed using heat transfer films due to cotton & cotton-poly blends feature such as easy to dye, breathable, and smoothness than the other fabric materials. In addition, women's wear & sportswear manufacturers are progressively adopting opaque, glossy & metallic heat transfer films for printing logos & graphics. Rising millennial demand for high graphics and quality printed t-shirts is expected to be the primary driver influencing the demand for heat transfer films.
