The global polyethylene foams market is expected to grow from USD 2.74 billion in 2016 to USD 3.64 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 5.8%. Energy sustainable and energy conservative material, growth in demand from end-use applications, and from APAC are the key factors driving the growth of this market.

PE foam is a closed-cell foam made from polyethylene and blended co-polymers with a high level of chemical crosslinking. The benefits of PE foams include impact and vibration absorption; weather and chemical resistance including splash resistance to oils and fuels; acoustic and thermal insulation properties; buoyancy with low water absorption; and thermo-forming and thermo-molding properties. Polyethylene foam is mainly used for coating of metals, such as protective packaging, building and construction, automotive, footwear, sports and recreational, medical, and others.

The polyethylene foams market has been segmented, on the basis of type, into crosslinked foam (XLPE) and non-crosslinked foam (Non-XLPE). The market for XLPE foams is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. XLPE foam offers superior thermal stability and insulating properties in addition to improved dimensional consistency and stability over a wide range of fabrication methods and end-use conditions. So, it is used in medical, protective packaging, automobiles, sports and recreational, building and construction, and gaskets end-use applications.

The polyethylene foams market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Strong growth can be witnessed in polyethylene foams market in the Asia-Pacific region, especially in China, India, and South-East Asian countries. Increase in purchasing power parity and demand from the end-use applications especially medical, building & construction and automotive drives the polyethylene foams market.

Polyethylene (PE) Foams Market

End-use applications such as medical, building & construction, protective packaging and automotive drive the growth of polyethylene foams market

Medical

PE foam is mostly used in medical device packaging, orthopedic soft goods, and medical components in medical end-use applications. These products are made from non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and latex-free foam. They are safe during direct skin contact as they are filled with nitrogen gas. The medical PE foams market is being driven by high growth in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical products and medical instruments in Asia-Pacific both for domestic and exports markets.

Automotive

The polyethylene foams market in the automotive segment is anticipated to witness healthy growth owing to increased competition among players, growing demand for vehicles, supportive government policies, development of transportation infrastructure, and rapid economic growth. The automotive industry continues to use polyethylene foam on an increasing number of automotive parts and products. In addition, it is used in trains, trucks, buses, and cars for passenger comfort; it is used under the carpet, seats, console boxes, tool boxes, shock absorbers, and on the sides to reduce impact.
