2013-08-16 10:10:30 - New Materials market report from Markets and Markets: "Polymer Foam Market By Types, Applications & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018"
Polymer Foam Market By Types (Polyurethane, Polystyrene, Polyvinyl Chloride, Polyolefin, Phenolic, Melamine and Others), Applications (Packaging, Building & Construction, Furniture & Bedding, Automotive, Wind Energy and Others) & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018
Polymer foam materials are recyclable, lightweight and have better processability. Polymer foams are generally available as open or closed cell structured foams. The cell structures decide the physical nature of foams and is chosen depending on the end-use application. Foams are adaptable to a wide range of temperatures and are available in various levels of hardness. The aforementioned reasons make foams suitable for many applications that demand resistance to extreme temperatures. The performances of foams reinforce their market amongst materials that have been conventionally used,
which are now being replaced by polymer foams.

The polymer foam manufacturing industry focuses to develop new polymer blends and foaming agents. Efforts are being taken to develop an environmental friendly foam process, which would also render the most efficient products and cost optimized manufacturing process. This market is also concerned about the issues in waste disposal, recyclability, flammability and the effect of blowing agents on the environment. Regulations on the use of certain hazardous blowing agents used in making polymer foams pose as a key challenge for manufacturers in various parts of the world.
The global market for polymer foams has grown during the past few years with a high R&D and intra polymer foam substitution trend, driven by cost effectiveness and adaptability of polymer foams in major end-user markets. U.S. and China shared 40.0% of the demand for polymer foams in 2012. Consumption and revenue generation of polymer foams is witnessed to be high in the APAC region, followed by the Western European region.
