The market size of high heat foam is estimated to reach USD 11.37 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 8.2%, driven by energy efficiency and insulating properties. The market growth is attributed to the increasing demand from developing countries coupled with growing manufacturer’s preference in automotive and industrial applications. The demand for high heat foam from the industrial and automotive application is notable in key countries such as China, India, and Brazil at global level. Emerging technologies are likely to fuel the growth of the foams market in future. Among all regions considered, Asia-Pacific and RoW are estimated to witness high growth in the next five years. In addition, the demand across these regions is reinforced by the emerging markets, namely, China, Brazil, and India.

Different types of foams based on different resins are manufactured according to specific requirement of different applications. These foams are classified based on their chemistries, namely, silicone, polyimide, melamine, polyethylene, and others. Currently, melamine foam dominates the high heat foam market.

Automotive, railway, industrial, aerospace, and others are the main application segments considered in the report. Industrial application is estimated to be the highest growing application, in terms of volume, between 2016 and 2021. Growing demand for high heat foam from the automotive and industrial application drives the market. On the other hand, volatility in raw material prices, government regulations, and recessionary effect on the end-use industries which is restricting the growth of high heat foam market globally.

Asia-Pacific was the largest market for high heat foams, in terms of value and volume, in 2015. The region is also expected to witness high growth rate in the market, between 2016 and 2021. Rising investments by foreign companies; growing production facilities; strong industrial base for construction, packaging, and automotive sectors; and rise in standard of living are the other major factors contributing to the growth of the market in this region. The growing demand for energy-efficient, good insulator, and recyclable foam in automotive, railway, industrial, aerospace, and others has led to the growth of the high heat foam market in this region.

High Heat Foam 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, thus hindering the growth of the market.

BASF SE (Germany), Rogers Corporation (U.S.), Evonik Industries (Germany), and Sinoyqx (China) are the leading companies, with excellent foothold in the U.S. and China. These companies are expected to account for a significant market share in the coming years. Entering into related industries and targeting new markets will enable the high heat foam manufacturers to overcome the effects of volatile economy, leading to diversified business portfolio and increase in revenue. Other major manufacturers of high heat foams are Waker Chemie AG (Germany), SABIC (Riyadh), Puren GmbH (Germany), Ube Industries, Ltd. (Japan), and Intec foams (U.K.).
