The global polypropylene foams market, along with its end products, has witnessed a rapid growth in the past few years which is estimated to persist in the coming years. The quality, durability, lightweight nature & excellent energy absorbing property, an upsurge in the demand for durable foams, demand for recyclable foams, and the upcoming safety regulations & innovative techniques for the use of these foams will be the key influencing factors for the global market with the increased emphasis on different types and their applications.

The polypropylene foam market is experiencing enormous growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by the highly growing Asia-Pacific, and European regions and the intense efforts at country level to promote environment-friendly and recyclable products. A considerable amount of investments is made by various market players to serve the end-user applications industry in the future. Asia-Pacific is the main market, which accounted for more than 35% market share of the total global demand in 2012. The region is further expected to show a high growth in the future, mainly due to high growth potential of the automotive market in China and India.

Almost 58.4% of the total polypropylene foam demand was for the automotive applications in 2012, with the packaging segment also being the fastest growing end-use segment. Automotive and packaging are the largest as well as the fastest growing end-use segments of the market, primarily due to high penetration in all the regions.

The drivers of the industry are stringent government regulations, increasing pressure for clean air and water, and the need for improving the standard of processing and manufacturing end-products. Recyclability is a growing concern which could push the market, as this type of foam is 100% recyclable among the competing foams.

This study basically aims to estimate the global market for 2013 and to project the expected demand of the same by 2018. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global polypropylene foam market. We have used various secondary sources such as encyclopedia, directories, and databases to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of the market. The primary sources – experts from related industries and suppliers - have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of the market.
