Asia Pacific and Europe to be Significant Regional Markets for Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) Foam

The Asia Pacific region is expected to account for a significant share in the global expanded polypropylene foam market in the coming years. This leading position of the Asia Pacific EPP foam market can be attributed to the rising product demand among various industry verticals, including packaging and consumer goods. The increased consumption of plastics and polymers in the region is projected to fuel the market for expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam, which is expected to be driven by the country's growing manufacturing activity. Also, the fast-paced growth of the automotive industry in Asia Pacific is expected to bolster the expansion of the Asia Pacific EPP foam market in the coming years.

On the other hand, Europe is another region expected to witness significant growth opportunities in the global expanded polypropylene foam market. This trend can be attributed to recovering automotive industry in the region and the rapid emergence of the consumer goods market in several major countries, such as France, Russia, Germany, and Spain. Furthermore, the strong presence of major original equipment manufacturers in the automotive industry is also expected to support the expansion of Europe's expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam market in the near future.

 

Automotive Application Expected to Dominate the Market Growth

The automotive segment is predicted to lead the market growth throughout the forecast period owing to rising product utilisation in passenger safety and noise reduction applications. EPP foam is used extensively in the automotive industry for noise management, thermal insulation, and impact absorption in the floor, door panels, seats, and bumpers. Over the forecast period, the growing necessity of reducing overall vehicle weight to enhance fuel efficiency is expected to drive the product demand in the automotive market.

Over the next few years, the consumer products industry is predicted to rise significantly. Due to the increased chemical and mechanical qualities, the product is increasingly being used in the production of electronics, toys, furniture, and household appliances. Growing demand for consumer goods, particularly in developing nations, is a major driver for segment expansion.

 

Market Segmentations

Polypropylene is used to make expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam. Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) foam is a flexible bead foam that offers energy absorption, impact resistance, thermal insulation, chemical resistance, and 100% recyclability. EPP foams are mostly utilised in industrial packaging because of their cushioning properties and flexibility, which provide great security for complex designs.

By raw material, the market includes:

  • Synthetic Polypropylene
  • Bio-based Polypropylene

The various forms of EPP foam in the market are:

  • Fabricated EPP
  • Moulded EPP
  • Others

The product finds applications in the following:

  • Automotive
  • Dunnage
  • Furniture
  • Food Packaging
  • HVAC
  • Sports and Leisure
  • Others

The regional markets for the expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam market can be divided into North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.

 

Increasing Product Penetration in Several Applications Augmenting the Market Growth

During the forecast period, the increased product penetration in applications such as packaging, consumer goods, and furniture is expected to aid the overall market growth. Its exceptional properties, such as durability, chemical and water resistance, thermal insulation, and recyclability, can be ascribed to its expanding product application scope in numerous industries. Also, the rising investments in manufacturing activities across major economies have resulted in increased automobile and consumer goods production. The rising demand for chemical and water-resistant materials in the packaging and consumer products industries is expected to drive the global expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam market over the forecast period. The key factors that are anticipated to augment the EPP foam market growth include the growing awareness of environmental concerns and the increasing demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient cars. The automotive industry is developing quickly due to the demand for automobiles and the rise in production; hence, the global EPP foam market is expected to proliferate further in the coming years. In addition, the rising need for bio-based polypropylene foam and alternatives for EPS and EPE products by EPP will further provide opportunities for the growth of the expanded polypropylene foam market in the forecast period.
