[174 Pages Report] Foam plastics are resins used in manufacturing polymer foams, which are used in various end-use industries such as building & construction, furniture & bedding, packaging, and automotive among others. The market size for foam plastics is projected to grow from USD 51.6 billion in 2020 to USD 65.4 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.8%. The global foam plastics market is witnessing high growth on account of growing end-use industries. The economic growth in developing countries and growth in the major end-use industries such as building & construction, automotive, packaging, and furniture & bedding industries are leading to the growth of the market.

Attractive Opportunities in the Foam plastics Market

Foam Plastics Market

Building & construction segment accounted for the largest share of the foam plastics market in 2019.

Foam plastics are used to make foams used in the building & construction industry for forging, doors, roof board, and slabs. PU is the dominant resin used in the building & construction industry for insulation. It has low heat conduction coefficient, low density, low water absorption, and relatively good mechanical strength and insulating properties, which are helpful in the building & construction sector. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected various end-use industries, and almost all divisions of the supply chain continue to be affected, which also includes the construction industry. According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), US, the GDP growth rate during the first two quarters is expected to be negative. This decline can be compared to the aftermath of the global performance of the 2008 Great Recession. However, the fourth quarter of 2020 is expected to be a rebound period.

Polyurethane segment is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.

The polyurethane resin segment is forecasted to register the highest CAGR. Polyurethane has low heat conduction coefficient, low density, low water absorption, relatively good mechanical strength, and good insulating properties. PU resin-based foams are available in a wide range of rigidity, hardness, and density levels. Low-density flexible foams are used in upholstery, bedding, automotive and truck seating, and novel inorganic plant substrates for roof or wall gardens. Low-density foams are used in thermal insulation and RTM cores.

Foam Plastics Market by Region

APAC is the fastest-growing foam plastics market.

APAC is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. The region comprises countries with different levels of economic development. The growth in the region is mainly attributed to the high economic growth rate followed by heavy investment across industries, such as building & construction, packaging, automotive, building & construction, and furniture & bedding.

Key Market Players

BASF SE (Germany), Covestro (Germany), Huntsman International LLC (US), The Dow Chemical Company (US), and Wanhua Chemical Group Co., Ltd. (China) are the major players in the foam plastics market.

Recent Developments

  • In March 2019, BASF enhanced its regional innovation capabilities with new facilities at the Innovation Campus Shanghai to further strengthen collaboration with the automotive industry and to offer new process catalysts to the chemical industry. With an investment of approximately USD 38.0 million, the new 5,000-square-meter facility includes the Automotive Application Center and the Process Catalysis Research & Development (R&D) Center. One of the innovations includes polyurethane (PU) integral foam solutions with an open cell structure offering unique performance, which are light-weight and have excellent sound insulation and flame resistance.
  • In February 2020, Huntsman Corporation announced that it completed the acquisition of Icynene-Lapolla, a leading North American manufacturer and distributor of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation systems for residential and commercial applications. Huntsman acquired the business from an affiliate of FFL Partners, LLC, for USD 350 million, subject to customary closing adjustments, in an all-cash transaction funded from available liquidity.

Foam plastics are resins used in manufacturing polymer foams, which are used in various end-use industries such as building & construction, furniture & bedding, packaging, and automotive among others. The study involves four major activities in estimating the current market size of foam plastics. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the market, the peer market, and the parent market. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain through primary research. Both the top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the complete market size. After that, the market breakdown and data triangulation methods were used to estimate the size of the segments and sub-segments of the overall market.

Secondary Research

In the secondary research process, various secondary sources, such as Hoovers, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and Dun & Bradstreet, have been referred to for identifying and collecting information for this study.
