[203 Pages Report] The market size for polymer foam is projected to grow from USD 90.7 billion in 2020 to USD 114.8 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.8%. The global polymer foam 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.

Polymer Foam Market

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

Polymer foams are used in the building & construction industry for forging, pipe-in-pipe, doors, roof board, and slabs. PU is the dominant foam 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 resin 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 foam is 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.

Polymer Foam Market

APAC is the fastest-growing polymer foam 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), Rogers Corporation (US), The Dow Chemical Company (US), Recticel NV/SA (Belgium), Sealed Air Corporation (US), Huntsman International LLC (US), and Armacell International S.A. (Germany) are the major players in the polymer foam market.

BASF SE (Germany) is a diversified chemical company. The company has five business segments: Functional Materials & Solutions, Chemicals, Performance Products, Agricultural Solutions, and Others. The company operates through six integrated production sites and 390 other production sites in Europe.

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 facilities include the Automotive Application Center and the Process Catalysis Research & Development (R&D) Center. One of the innovations include polyurethane (PU) integral foam solutions with an open cell structure offering unique performance, which are light-weight, with excellent sound insulation and flame resistance.
  • In November 2018, The Dow Chemical Company announced the opening of a polyol (a raw material for polymer foam) plant for rigid PU foam in Rayong, Thailand. This facility is expected to increase the company's capacity to offer high-quality insulation products and solutions.
