Global Polyethylene Foam Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.13% During 2022-2027, Aided by its Rising Usage Across Various End-Use Industries

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Polyethylene Foam Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the market attained a value of over USD 3.42 billion in 2021. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.13% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach a value of more than USD 4.86 billion by 2027.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a significant share in the overall market growth of polyethylene foam. This can be associated with the rising constructional activities in countries like India and China as a result of robust urbanisation and industrialisation. Polyethylene foams are utilised in pipe-in-pipes, rooftop sheets, and entryways. In addition to this, the inflating disposable incomes and the rising standards of living is propelling construction and re-construction activities hence invigorating the demand for polyethylene foams for high durability, resistivity to moisture, and thermal insulation, among others. Furthermore, owing to the flourishing e-commerce industry in the region, the increasing demand for polyethylene foams in logistics, packaging, and transportation is generating robust opportunities for the growth of the market.

Braskem and Innovak, together with the Flex mattress manufacturer in Brazil, recently carried out a study assessing the Zeeflex technology produced by Innovak based on expanded polyethylene foam in October 2021. The study showed that mattresses produced with polyethylene foam technology generate 12% less environmental impact than ordinary mattresses. The study also showed that there is a 36% reduction in water usage, along with a 19% reduction in carbon emissions. Such studies and developments by leading market players are contributing to the market growth of the polyethylene foams. The market is further witnessing growth with the expansion of key market players, such as Zotefoams Plc (LON: ZTF).
