The packaging foams market is projected to reach USD 17.21 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.09% from 2017 to 2022. This growth is mainly driven by the increasing demand for packaging foams from food service and protective packaging service type. In addition, high demand for packaging foams from the Asia-Pacific region has contributed to the growth of this market. Packaging foams are based on material types such as PS, PU, PO, and others including PVDF and PVC.

In 2016, the PS material type accounted for the largest market share, in terms of volume and value, followed by PU and then PO packaging foams. PS is the most versatile type of polymer foam, which is a synthetic aromatic polymer made from the monomer styrene. EPS and XPS are the two types of PS packaging foams. EPS acts as an insulator, as heat cannot travel through easily. It is used in manufacturing flotation devices, insulation, egg cartons, sandwiches, hamburger boxes, and coffee mugs.

Based on structure type, the flexible segment of the packaging foams market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. Business that focus on protecting their products in the delivery process can go for flexible foam for their packaging needs.  It is often used for extremely sensitive products such as computer parts, fruits, electronic parts, and jewelry.

The packaging foams market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022, in terms of value and volume. This growth is mainly attributed to high economic growth, followed by growing e-commerce business in the Asia-Pacific region.

Packaging Foams Market

One of the most significant factors restraining the growth of the packaging foams market includes volatility in raw material prices. This further causes fluctuations in the prices of packaging foams products.

Key players operating in the packaging foams market include Armacell (Germany), JSP (Japan), Zotefoams Plc. (U.K), BASF (Germany), Borealis Ag (Austria), and Sealed Air Corporation (U.S.), among others. Diverse product portfolio, strategically positioned R&D centers, continuous adoption of development strategies, and technological advancements are factors strengthening the market position of these companies. These companies have adopted various organic and inorganic growth strategies to enhance their current market share in the packaging foams market.
