Polyolefin foam (PO) is the fastest-growing type of polymer foam

PO is the fastest-growing type of polymer foam because of its resilience. It is an excellent energy absorber, making it useful in cushion packaging, athletic pads, floatation devices, and occupant safety applications. It offers flexibility, cushioning properties, toughness, good chemical and abrasion resistance, electrical and thermal insulation, and compression set properties.

Building & construction the largest end-use industry of polymer foam market

Polymer foams are used in various end-use industries such as packaging, building & construction, furniture & bedding, automotive, footwear, sports & recreational, and others. However, building & construction is the most dominant end-use industry, which is driven by huge investments in new infrastructure development, new housing projects, and renovation of non-residential buildings in the U.S., China, India, and Brazil.

Rising demand from Asia-Pacific is the major driver for polymer foam market

In 2016, Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share, in terms of volume and value. It is projected to register the highest CAGR of 6.81% between 2017 and 2022 in terms of value. The Asia-Pacific polymer foam market is driven by high economic growth and heavy investments in the industries such as automotive, marine, building & construction, and manufacturing. The growing industrialization, middle-class population, increasing infrastructure development, and rise in purchasing power of consumers have led to the growth in manufacturing of polymer foam in the region.

The market size of polymer foam is estimated at USD 94.86 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 126.08 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.86%. It is driven by the wide use in different end-use industries, namely, building & construction, automotive, furniture & bedding, packaging, and others. The high demand from the automotive sector, especially in gaskets, headliners, cushioning, and cables applications, also drives the market.

The demand for polymer foam in the automotive and packaging industries is high, especially in China, India, and Brazil. New emerging technologies and innovations drive the demand for these foams in these industries. Asia-Pacific is estimated to witness a strong growth in the next five years.

Different types of foams are used in the industries based on requirements. They have distinct properties, which vary according to application requirements. These are classified based on their types, namely, PU, PS, PVC, phenolic, polyolefin, melamine, and others. The others segment constitute silicone and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). Currently, PU foam dominates the polymer foam market based on its demand from various end-use industries such as building & construction, packaging, furniture & bedding, and automotive.

Growing demand for polymer foam in the automotive, building & construction, and packaging industries drive the market. On the other hand, volatility in raw material prices, government regulations, and economic slowdown negatively affect the market.

Price and availability of raw materials are key factors for foam manufacturers for determining the cost structure of their products. Raw materials used by the foam industry include resins, inorganic chemicals, and refined petroleum products. Most of these raw materials are petroleum-based derivatives and are vulnerable to fluctuations in commodity prices.

Key players operating in the polymer foams market include Sealed Air (U.S.), Arkema (France), Armacell (Germany), BASF (Germany), Borealis (Austria), Total (France), JSP (Japan), Kaneka (Japan), Recticel (Belgium), Rogers (U.S.), Sekisui Alveo (Switzerland), Synthos (Poland), Woodbridge (Canada), Zotefoams (U.K.), and others. Diverse product portfolio, strategically positioned R&D centers, continuous adoption of development strategies, and technological advancements are factors strengthening the market position of these companies. These companies have adopted various organic and inorganic growth strategies to enhance their current market share in the polymer foam market.
