Automotive Foams Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report, By Material Type (Polyurethane, Polyolefin, and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)), By Application (Seating, Door Panels, Bumper System and Others), by End-User (Commercial Vehicles, Passenger Cars, and Two Wheelers) and Forecast, 2019-2025.

Automotive foam market is growing at a significant CAGR during the forecast period (2019-2025). The automotive foams are manufactured from polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyolefins and other petroleum derivatives. They are produced by the methods of extrusion, slab-stock and other molding methods. The automobile industry is growing on the backdrop of technological advancement and innovations in various products and also government and private sector investment in the R&D sector. Automotive foams have thermal insulators with low heat transfer property resulting in the increased in demand among the automotive foam manufacturers.

The factor hampering the demand of automotive foam market is the unfavorable government policies towards polymer foams as they are non-biodegradable. This has forced the manufacturers towards the innovation of more sustainable eco-friendly automotive foams. Moreover, non-biodegradable automotive foams possess waste disposable problems restraining the automotive foams market. Also, the manufacturing of polymer foams requires the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) which may affect the environment may hamper the market share of automotive foams.

The automotive foams market is segmented on the basis of material type, application, and end-user. Based on material type, automotive foam market is segmented into polyurethane, polyolefin and PVC. On the basis of application, the market is segmented into seating, door panels, bumper system, and others. Based on the end-user, the market is segmented into commercial vehicles, two-wheelers and passenger cars. Geographically, the market is further segmented on the basis of the regions, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the world (RoW).

North America is expected to have a significant share in the automotive foams market owing to increased investment in R&D to improve design coupled with technological advancement and better manufacturing operations. Europe is also expected to hold significant market share over the forecast period owing to the expanding automobile industries in the UK and Germany. Also, the presence of key automobile manufacturers in the region tends to drive the market share of automotive foams.
