COVID-19 Impact on the Global Polyethylene (PE) Foams Market

COVID-19 has posed many challenges for the automotive sector. The US, Germany, the UK, Italy, South Korea, Spain, and Japan are among the adversely affected major industrialized economies. More than 90% of automotive and related companies report that COVID-19 will have a direct impact on their 2020 sales revenues. The outbreak of COVID-19 and resulting economic uncertainty may reduce consumer demand in the short term. This would possibly hamper new vehicle sales and delay spending on non-essential maintenance. In the long run, these factors could influence consumer preferences.

COVID-19 has posed many challenges in the construction sector. Major economies across the world, such as the US, Germany, the UK, Italy, South Korea, Spain, and Japan, are among the severely affected countries by the pandemic. Social distancing measures, supply chain disruptions, and workforce dislocation have led to the suspension of construction activities in most countries due to the disruptions in supply chains and shortage of raw materials and labor. Construction companies with high debts and lower cash reserves faced a liquidity crisis. However, the construction of temporary hospitals and quarantine centers increased with this outbreak of coronavirus.

Polyethylene foams Market Dynamics

Driver: Growth of major end-use industries of polyethylene foams

Polyethylene foams are used in the building & construction industry for forging, pipe-in-pipe, doors, roof board, and slabs. XLPE foams have excellent thermal insulation, moisture resistance, and sound and vibration absorption properties and hence are appropriate for use in the building and construction industry. The demand for packaging is increasing in the food industry and in online shopping (shippable materials). With the growing awareness about the safety, quality, and maintenance of a product’s physical properties, the use of polyethylene foams in packaging is increasing. The application area of polyethylene foams in automotive industry includes the headliners, door panel & water shield, seat liners, mirror seal, dashboard padding, air conditioning ducts, and trunk liner. The automotive manufacturers are continuously trying to lower the weight of the average car which tends to improve fuel consumption and better performance. Hence, to obtain this polyethylene foam is used

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 is a major factor restraining the growth of the market. Oil prices have been highly volatile for the past two years 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.

Opportunity: Growing demand for CO2-based polyols

The continuous development of chemistry and polymer architecture has increased the use of polyethylene foams, as they can meet the sustainability requirements. It is expected that there will be a gradual reduction in the availability of resources such as 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 the major reason CO2-based polyols are replacing conventional polyols.

Challenge: Stringent government regulations

Overexposure to VOCs is hazardous to health and can cause skin, eye, nose, throat, and lung irritation. The use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as a blowing agent during the manufacturing process of foams is a major factor behind the depletion of the ozone layer. Hence, regulators such as Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH), European Union (EU), Registration, Evaluation, Authorization 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. Due to the above-mentioned factors, 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.

Protective packaging segment accounted for the largest share of the polyethylene foams market in 2020.

Protective packaging is used in a wide variety applications including fruits and vegetables, automotive, aerospace, appliance, electronics, and pharmaceuticals. It is used for safeguarding and shielding a core product from damages during transportation or storage. The aggressive growth of e-commerce, along with technological improvements in material options, is changing the way how most companies are picking their protective packaging solutions. Economic growth and demographic change is a major factor driving the packaging industry.

XLPE type is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.

XPLE foam also known as cross-linked polyethylene foam is a closed-cell foam which is characterized by a compact feel and resistance to water. It has many of the same properties as polyethylene foam but also has the ability to protect Class "A" surfaces (surface that can either be seen or touched or both) and is consequently used extensively in the packaging of medical products and equipment.

APAC is the largest polyethylene foams market in the forecast period

APAC is the fastest-growing PE foam market, which is driven by high economic growth and heavy investments in packaging, automotive, building & construction, and manufacturing industries. Its growing middle-class population plays an important role in driving various industries, which has led to industrialization and the manufacturing of various products that require PE foam. The demand for premium and better-quality products is increasing in the region with the growth in the middle-class population.

The spread of the coronavirus started in China in early January 2020. Within a small period, the spread in other Asian countries such as Japan, South Korea, and Thailand resulted in the pandemic situation, with rapid positive cases and death. This situation led national governments across APAC to announce lockdowns, leading to a decrease in traffic, construction & mining activities, manufacturing industries, and so on. Since China is a global manufacturing hub, the impact of COVID-19 is anticipated to be much higher in the country. Considering the above factors, the polyethylene foams market is expected to decline in APAC in 2020.
