New Report Released: - Global Engineered Foams Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global engineered foams market: Armacell, BASF, Covestro, Huntsman International, and Recticel.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: The Dow Chemical Company, SEKISUI CHEMICAL, Trelleborg, INOAC CORPORATION, Foamcraft, FoamPartner, and Woodbridge Foam Corporation.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is advent of green foams. Improved sustainability and environmental characteristics are propelling the use of green polyurethane foams. This includes the use of raw materials with minimal environmental impact. For instance, polyurethane engineered foams are increasingly being manufactured using bio-based polyols. Some foams are also manufactured using blowing agents that have low global warming potential (GWP).”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand from developing economies. The global engineered foam market is witnessing high growth in emerging economies, such as Brazil, China, Russia, Turkey, Indonesia, South Korea, Mexico, and India. Many OEMs, such as automotive manufacturers, are shifting their manufacturing operations to these countries due to factors such as the availability of land, cheap labor, low transportation costs, and lenient government norms. In 2016, China was the largest consumer of polystyrene foam. The engineered foam market in India is also growing significantly due to the increasing use as insulating material in refrigerators and in the construction industry.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is crude oil price and its impact on engineered foam market. The final engineered foam product cost depends on the price fluctuations of crude oil, which has been at an 11-year-low in 2016. The crude oil prices further dropped after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) planned to retain its high production despite depressed oil prices. Additionally, benzene prices in Asian markets have declined sharply, which has cascaded because of weakening demand. The volatile oil prices are inherent in the chemical sector. Minor stability can be anticipated by fundamental changes in the supply and demand dynamics in the global engineered foams market.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
