COVID-19 Impact on the Global Polyethylene foams Market

COVID-19 has made a significant economic impact on various financial as well as industrial sectors, such as travel and tourism, manufacturing, and aviation. The worst economic recession is expected during 2020-2021, according to World Bank and IMF. With the increasing number of countries imposing and extending lockdowns, economic activities are declining, impacting the global economy.

In the recent past, the global economy became substantially more interconnected. The adverse consequences of various steps related to the containment of COVID-19 are evident from global supply chain disruptions, weaker demand for imported products and services, and an increase in the unemployment rate. Risk aversion has increased in the financial market, with all-time low interest rates and sharp declines in equity and commodity prices. Consumer and business confidence have also reduced significantly.

Polyethylene foams Market Dynamics.

Driver: Growth of major end-use industries segments

Major industries of polyethylene foams include building & construction, protective packaging, automotive, medical, and footwear, sports & recreational. Polyethylene foams are used in the building & construction industry for forging, pipe-in-pipe, doors, roof board, and slab applications. XLPE foams have excellent thermal insulation, moisture resistance, and sound and vibration absorption properties and are appropriate for use in the building & construction industry. Packaging is necessary for all kinds of materials for safety and insulation. The application areas of polyethylene foams in the automotive industry include headliners, door panels & water shields, seat liners, mirror seal, dashboard padding, air conditioning ducts, and trunk liner. The automobile manufacturers are continuously trying to lower vehicle weight, which tends to improve fuel consumption and better performance, for which polyethylene foams are used. In the medical industry, XLPE foam is used, which is hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and latex-free, and can also be used in operating rooms.

Restraint: Volatility in raw material prices

The factors that determine the cost structure of products are the price and availability of raw materials. The key raw materials used to make polyethylene foams are naphtha, low-density polyethylene (LDPE) resin, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resin, and additives. Volatile raw material prices affect the manufacturing cost structure of the products. Oil prices have been highly volatile for the past two years (2019-2020) due to the rising global demand, conflict, and foreign military intervention in the Middle East. Such fluctuating raw material prices act as a restraint in the polyethylene foams market. Over the last few years, the price fluctuation in petrochemical-based raw materials has affected the polyethylene foams market. The consistent global demand, coupled with capacity constraints of primary chemicals and resins, has tightened the supply of raw materials, and increased their prices.

Opportunity: Growing demand for CO-2 based polyols

The continuous development of chemistry and polymer architecture has increased the use of polyethylene foams, as they can meet sustainability requirements. It is expected that there will be a gradual reduction in the availability of resources, for instance, drilled oil. It is also expected that CO2-based polyols may completely replace petroleum-based products because CO2 is cheaper than petroleum-based raw materials. In comparison to petroleum-based products, natural oil-based polymers consume less drilled oil, but the production of natural oil-based polyols requires land useful for crop production. This is a major reason CO2-based polyols are replacing conventional polyols.

Challenge: Stringent government regulations

Overexposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is hazardous to health and can cause skin, eye, and nose, throat, and lung irritations. The use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as a blowing agent during the manufacturing process of foams is a major cause for the depletion of the ozone layer. Hence, regulators, such as Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH), European Union (EU), Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), Globally Harmonized System (GHS), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Europe and North America regulate the use of foams in various applications. It is a challenge for the market players to develop cost-effective, eco-friendly polyethylene foam products to cater to the demand while complying with stringent environmental regulations

Non-XLPE foam type accounted for the largest share of the Polyethylene foams market.

Non-XLPE foam is also known as non-cross-linked polyethylene foam. Non-XLPE foam is easy to fabricate, and it is both non-abrasive and resilient. This polyethylene foam provides excellent shock and vibration protection during product transport. It has good flotation properties and is also water-resistant for recreational and sporting applications. It has good thermal insulation properties and has the added benefit of being recyclable. It is also a great alternative to more traditional types of packaging, such as corrugated paper.

Automotive is the second-largest end-use industry of Polyethylene foams market in 2021.

The automotive industry is continuously trying to lower vehicle weight. Lower weight tends to improve fuel consumption and better performance. Polyethylene foams are used in both small private vehicles and commercial vehicles, as well as in large quantities in coaches and buses. Polyethylene foams find their applications in the interior as well as the exterior of automobiles. These foams have a multifunctional role varying from simple product usage to acoustic and thermal insulation, as well as acting as a water seal. The application areas of polyethylene foams in the automotive industry include headliners, door panels & water shields, seat liners, wing mirror seal, dashboard padding, air conditioning ducts, and trunk liner.

APAC is the largest polyethylene foam market in the forecast period

APAC has emerged as one of the leading producers as well as consumers of polyethylene foam. In India, low-cost labor, government initiatives, such as Make in India, and the proposed scheme on entrepreneurship development may open up opportunities in the industrial and infrastructure segments.  The major applications of polyethylene foam in the APAC region are packaging, automotive, and medical. The increasing middle-class population in the region (with a high disposable income) and the rising demand for sustainable construction, transportation, and medical facilities are major factors supporting the growth of these application segments.

China is the leading market for polyethylene foams in the APAC. The Chinese market for polyethylene foams has grown rapidly and is projected to witness high growth in the near future due to the continuous shift of polyethylene foams production facilities from several countries to China. Most of the leading players in North America and Europe are planning to shift their production bases to China as it offers comparatively inexpensive raw materials, low cost of production, and the ability to serve the emerging local market.
