Versatility to Drive the Foamed Plastics Market

As per a report available on XploreMR, the global foamed plastics market will grow unabated between 2020 and 2030.

The global foamed plastics market is driven by the ever-increasing applications of foamed plastics in several businesses like beddings and furniture, packaging, and automotive industries. Foamed plastics come across as versatile, lightweight, dermatologically friendly, resistant to mildew, and long-lasting plastics. PU (polyurethane) is one such plastic. It has been finding its presence in gasket seals, seat cushions, head rests, arm rests, airbags, cushioned instrument panels, and various other components that ask for robust structures. The automotive industry is expected to be a major revenue generator in this regard in the near future.

What more has Foamed Plastics Market to Offer?

Foamed plastics also have environmental advantages like reduction in wastage, high recyclability, greater sustainability, and proper incineration to check the pollutants. However, various federal agencies and governments across the globe are raising their grievances regarding adverse effects of isocyanates in the production of foamed plastics.

To counter the above-mentioned hitch, non-toxic isocyanates and bio-based polyols are being introduced. Though it is likely to take a while in incorporating them at a large scale, the mere disruption is enough to create ripples.

Expanded polystyrene foam is amongst the lightest materials but with high “strength to weight ratio”. It results in lower consumption of fuels and also saves on transport. Rail applications like rail embankment and constructing platform extensions could be catered to with the help of polystyrene foam. The MEA and Asia-Pacific are witnessing progression of numerous rail infrastructure construction projects. This factor could be the force to reckon with, in the upcoming period.

Coming to applications, “building and construction” holds the largest share (more than 35%) due to use in flooring, molding, pipe, and cables and wire. The second largest share is held by bedding and furniture due to use in mattress padding, chair cushions, and carpet padding.

The US is also experiencing recovery of the automotive sector. The production of automotives is also increasing in the emerging countries like India. This renders automotives as the sector growing at the fastest pace in the foamed plastics market.

Covid-19 Impact

The outbreak of Covid-19 has enforced partial/total lockdowns all across. This has, in turn, stalled the production of foam plastics. This temporary suspension of activities has resulted in declination of the foamed plastics market. The end-users have also been affected by the same pandemic. This has left the entire economy in a fix. The situation is expected to improve mid-2021 (once Covid-19 vaccine is into force).

Region-wise Slingshot

The global foamed plastics market constitutes North America (Canada, US), Eastern Europe (Russia and Poland), Western Europe (Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Belgium, Nordic countries, Italy, Spain, France, UK, Germany), Asia-Pacific (New Zealand, Australia, ASEAN, Japan, India, China), MEA (North Africa, Southern Africa, GCC), and Latin America (Chile, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, and others).

North America holds the largest market share, thanks to the growing demand for polystyrene and polyurethane foams in construction and building along with marine applications. The wind energy applications are also incomplete without foamed plastics. Besides, residential units have also been rising at a substantial rate in the US. This factor is expected to hold the flag high for North America. Europe comes in second. The Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the quickest pace due to the manufacturing industry growing by leaps and bounds herein.
