The global microcellular plastics market was valued at $47.6 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $93.0 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Microcellular plastic is a type of thermoplastic polymer that has a large number of tiny bubbles and is characterized by a great number of cell densities. Microcellular plastics are manufactured utilizing environmentally friendly gases such as nitrogen and carbon dioxide, which are predicted to minimize the usage of traditional plastic foam techniques, which emit a high level of toxic emissions. Other properties include thermal insulation, sound insulation, cushion, energy absorption, filtration, selective light transmission, diffusion, and tissue engineering scaffolds, making the product competitive with microcellular plastics.

The microcellular plastics market is segmented into type, end-use industry, and region. On the basis of type, the market is categorized into polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, polycarbonate, polyethylene terephthalate and others. On the basis of end-use industry, it is categorized into healthcare, building & construction, food packaging, electrical & electronics, and others. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Executive Summary

According to the report titled, “Microcellular Plastics Market," the microcellular plastics market was valued at $47.6 billion in 2021, and is estimated to reach $93.0 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Microcellular plastics include polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyvinyl chloride, and others. Microcellular plastics, such as polystyrene, appear to be strong, rigid, and transparent polymers which are used to make expanded polystyrene (EPS). EPS blocks are employed in the construction industry for applications in concrete floor slabs and underfloor heating due to their excellent thermal conductivity. Microcellular polystyrene is a flexible, high-impact material that is simple to print on and transform. It is used in applications such as cooktops, consumer goods, television and audiovisual equipment parts, tapes, bicycle trailers, appliance parts, gasoline tanks, circuit boards, and compartments for the automotive industry.

Microcellular plastics such as polycarbonate are utilized in switching relays and connections, sensor components and lights, LCD and LED sections, cellphones, and computers. Polycarbonates are also employed in the manufacture of wire insulation and coatings as they are excellent thermal insulators. Polycarbonate microcellular plastics are ideal for infant bottles, sippy cups, and a range of other beverage and food containers. Polycarbonates have long been a significant component in the automobile industry, and they will continue to supply creative solutions for electric powertrain corporations and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Microcellular plastic insulation boxes can be used for transporting organs, blood, drugs, and specimens, where expanded polystyrene (EPS) can reduce the occurrence of damaged items and lower transport costs due to its lightweight. It contains 98% air and has great insulating properties, expanded polystyrene is a good choice for medical and pharmaceutical packaging. Microcellular plastics are used to create blood bags and other non-breakable PVC containers. PVC-based medical devices are noiseless and prevent odors from escaping, providing additional comfort and hygiene.

Microcellular plastic medical polycarbonate has superior durability and chemical resistance, which helps in the prevention of cracking and the safe delivery of pharmaceuticals to patients. It is widely used in the production of medical instruments and equipment like surgical gloves, syringes, insulin pens, catheters, inflatable splits, and others. Amcor plc announced an investment in April 2022 to create additional thermoforming capabilities for medical packaging, including microcellular polymers, at its healthcare packaging business in Sligo, Ireland. The multimillion-dollar investment strengthens Amcor's dominance in the expanding sterile packaging and provides customers in Europe and North America with access to a new location offering comprehensive healthcare solutions.

Microcellular plastics are used to effectively collect, separate, store, and transport blood. According to the American Hospital Association, statistics updated in February 2022, 48 million procedures were conducted in hospitals in the U.S., and the majority of them required an enormous amount of blood supply, which increases the blood bags partially grown microcellular plastics demand. Thus, the increase in demand for healthcare is expected to boost the growth of the microcellular plastics market during the forecast period.

However, the scarcity of microcellular plastic processing units affects the overall cost structure, presenting a challenge to the microcellular plastic market. Microcellular plastics processing consists of three basic elements creating a gas/polymer solution, inducing a thermodynamic instability to nucleate billions of microvoids, and controlling the diffusional growth of stable nuclei. Microcellular plastics can be made of nearly all polymers and fiber-reinforced polymers including thermosetting, amorphous, semi-crystalline, elastomeric, and liquid crystalline polymers. The demand for service is greater than the availability of the good or service. It has a very high demand for commercial utilization and supply of the microcellular is very low due to the high material cost associated with microcellular plastics. The uncertainty about the availability of raw materials raises the overall cost of the materials and makes microcellular plastics scarce.

The microcellular plastics market is segmented into type, end-use industry, and region. On the basis of type, the market is categorized into polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, polycarbonate, polyethylene terephthalate and others. On the basis of end-use industry, it is categorized into healthcare, building & construction, food packaging, electrical & electronics, and others. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The global microcellular plastics market is fragmented in nature with various players such as Armacell, BASF SE, Formosa Plastics Corporation, INEOS, INOAC CORPORATION, LAVERGNE, Inc., RTP Company, SABIC, TotalEnergies and Trinseo hold a significant share of the market. These players have been adopting various strategies to gain higher share or to retain leading positions in the market.
