Major polymer foams available commercially include polyamide, microcellular, polyolefinic, polyvinyl chloride, silicon, polyurethane and Styrofoam. Increasing polyurethane foams usage in furniture, carpets and bedding manufacturing is projected to foster the market growth over the foreseeable future. Regulatory bodies such as REACH, U.S. EPA and European Commission imposed stringent regulations on polymer foam to manufacture synthetic products on account of non-biodegradable nature and high carcinogenicity. This is major factor expected to hamper the global polymer foam market over the next seven years. Sensitive petrochemicals prices which in turn impact the polymer foam manufacturing cost are projected to hinder the market growth. Development of bio-based polymers such as bio-based PU, and PVC is anticipated to create immense opportunities for polymer foam market participants over the forecast period.
Based on product type, polyurethane was the largest product segment in 2014 owing large applications in end-use industries such as furniture, carpet and bedding. Polyolefinic foams are expected to be the fastest growing product segment over the next seven years on account of increasing applications in packaging and automotive components including cables, gaskets, headlines and cushioning.
