The market size of polymer foam was USD 89.62 Billion in 2016 and is estimated to reach USD 126.08 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.86% between 2017 and 2022. The report covers the polymer foam market by type, such as polyurethane (PU), polystyrene (PS), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), phenolic, polyolefin, and melamine; by end-use industry, such as packaging, building & construction, furniture & bedding, automotive, and others; and by region, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Base year considered for the study is 2016, while the forecast period is between 2017 and 2022. The rise in demand for polymer foam in the end-use industries, such as automotive, building & construction, and packaging, drive the market.

Top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the size of the global market and various other dependent submarkets in the overall polymer foam market. The research study involves the use of extensive secondary sources, directories, and databases such as Hoovers, Bloomberg, Chemical Weekly, Factiva, Polyurethane Foam Association (PFA), European Association of Flexible Polyurethane Foam (EUROPUR), and other government and private websites to identify and collect information useful for the technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the polymer foam market.

The market size of polymer foam is estimated at USD 94.86 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 126.08 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.86%. It is driven by the wide use in different end-use industries, namely, building & construction, automotive, furniture & bedding, packaging, and others. The high demand from the automotive sector, especially in gaskets, headliners, cushioning, and cables applications, also drives the market.

The demand for polymer foam in the automotive and packaging industries is high, especially in China, India, and Brazil. New emerging technologies and innovations drive the demand for these foams in these industries. Asia-Pacific is estimated to witness a strong growth in the next five years.

Different types of foams are used in the industries based on requirements. They have distinct properties, which vary according to application requirements. These are classified based on their types, namely, PU, PS, PVC, phenolic, polyolefin, melamine, and others. The others segment constitute silicone and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). Currently, PU foam dominates the polymer foam market based on its demand from various end-use industries such as building & construction, packaging, furniture & bedding, and automotive.

Growing demand for polymer foam in the automotive, building & construction, and packaging industries drive the market. On the other hand, volatility in raw material prices, government regulations, and economic slowdown negatively affect the market.

Polymer Foam Market

Price and availability of raw materials are key factors for foam manufacturers for determining the cost structure of their products.
