Engineered Foam Market Analysis

Engineered foam is a lightweight plastic, and is essential in a wide variety of end-use applications. Solid and gas phases are blended at a rapid rate in engineered foam to give a resulting mixture that integrates a polymer matrix with bubbles or air channels within it. This includes packaging, automobile, electricity, building, and several other industries. It is used for producing shock resistance and waterproofing gaskets. Engineered foam has recyclable and reusable features that reinforced the conventional foam market against it. Engineered foam is witnessing increasing popularity, due to its higher insulation and durability compared to traditional foam. Thus, the global demand for engineered foam is anticipated to rise rapidly over the coming years.

Key drivers of global engineered foam market

The growth of the engineered foam market is driven by rise in demand for engineered foam across various sectors such as automobile, transportation, and healthcare. Engineered foam is commonly used in the construction and general manufacturing industries as an insulator, and its use is projected to grow during the forecast period, owing to increase in demand for insulation in the building and construction sector. Rigid foam insulation is revolutionary in the architecture and manufacturing industry, a substance that rapidly decreases the energy consumption of a building and helps regulate the interior temperature. In addition, the engineered foam provides moisture insulation by reducing the moisture to move through the walls that contributes to the building's mold development. New environmental initiatives aimed at decreasing fossil fuel consumption and oil & gas producers to use foam as insulation in the building and manufacturing industries, which, in turn, is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global market.

Market scenario: opportunities and challenges

Increase in use of high-power engines with high-calorific performance fuels for improved combustion significantly contributes toward the growth of the global engineered foam market. It is anticipated that a superior transformation coupled with shorter product life cycles in end-use industries will push the global demand for engineered foam. However, engineered foam relies solely on the form of material used in manufacturing, which may raise the cost of the product, thereby hampering the growth of the market. In addition, the industrial use of scale of engineered foam has to be carefully monitored, as a slight variation in the consistency of the polymer can affect the quality of the product or even destroy the whole sample. On the contrary, this industry has an advantage in producing engineered foam from bio-based polyols, which is the upcoming consumer trend. This product will further expand applications and drive further market growth.

COVID-19 scenario analysis

Owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the growth of the global engineered foam market is expected to decline during the next couple of years. Industries are dealing with missing sales and fractured supply chains due to shutdown of manufacturing facilities, resulting in adverse effects on the global demand for engineered foam. However, attributed to COVID-19, the growing need for hospitalization, several countries' policy focuses on developing their healthcare sector. Growth in the medical and healthcare segment is expected to reinforce global market demand for engineered foam, as it helps to improving patient care. Thus, the development of the healthcare industry and the need for medical equipment with precision contributes toward the market growth.
