As consumers are increasingly preferring high quality and durable materials for their furniture, such as sofas and cushions, the demand for flexible foam is significantly escalating, hence augmenting the industry growth. In addition, flexible foams, such as polyurethane (PU) foams, provide acoustic insulation in floors, walls, and ceilings, which is further augmenting the market growth. The emergence of the middle class with improved standards of living is increasing the demand for comfortable mattresses made with flexible foam, which is projected to bolster the market growth in upcoming years.

 

Flexible Foam: Industry Definition and Segmentation

Flexible foam is a foam that can be moulded in various shapes and firmness. It is durable, lightweight, water-resistant, abrasion-resistant, and versatile, among others, due to which it is extensively deployed in various applications in industries such as automotive, construction, and packaging. Flexible foam is extensively used for cushioning applications in mattresses and furniture.

The major types of flexible foam are:

  • Polyurethane (PU) Foam
  • Polyethylene (PE) Foam
  • Polypropylene (PP) Foam
  • Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA)
  • Others

The market can be broadly categorised on the basis of its applications segments into:

  • Furniture and Bedding
  • Transportation
  • Packaging
  • Construction

The EMR report looks into the regional markets of flexible foam like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Rising Demand for Flexible Foam in the Automotive Industry to Augment the Market Growth

The global market for flexible foam is being augmented by the product’s growing demand in the manufacturing of automobiles in the automotive industry. Flexible foams are used to enhance protection, comfort, and energy efficiency of vehicles, due to which it is extensively deployed in armrests, headrests, and seats of cars to improve driving and seating experience. This is increasing the demand for flexible foams, thus significantly contributing to the industry growth. As they reduce the weight of vehicles, they are also deployed in the bodies of cars to provide insulation from heat and noise while promoting fuel efficiency, which is facilitating the market growth of flexible foams. Moreover, the rising demand for luxury cars with lightweight and energy-efficient properties, especially in Europe and North America, is estimated to further increase the deployment of flexible foams to enhance comfort, which is anticipated to further aid the industry growth in the forecast period.
