Microcellular Plastics Market Overview - 2027

Microcellular plastics, also known as microcellular foam, are produced by gas nucleation. These consist of miniaturized pores in the polymer medium whose aperture size is not more than 100 micrometers. Microcellular plastic is a new generation plastic developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). They possess diminutive residual stress, short process duration, less material utilization property, and better mechanical properties when compared with other type of plastics. These are light-weight and exhibit several useful properties, such as heat insulation, discriminating light transmission & diffusion, sound insulation, and energy absorption. These plastics are explicitly manufactured to create smaller scale pores that involve three essential properties, induced thermodynamic in stability, create a gas or polymer solution, and control the growth of stable nuclei.


Rise in interest for high performance materials in different end-user industries is expected to drive the market. Proliferating demandfor microcellular plasticinthe packaging segment owing to its biodegradability and environment friendly properties is expected to drive the market growth. Moreover, rise in demand for microcellular plastics owing to its high strength-to-weight ratio and low density is expected to fuel the segment growth in aviation sector. However, due to less commercial application of microcellular plastics and its high material cost, industry players are looking for alternatives that may hinder the growth. But increase in application of environment friendly inert gas in microcellular plastics production is anticipated to target new potential customers in the upcoming years. 

The microcellular plastics market is segmented into type, application, end user and region. By type, the market is categorized as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS), polycarbonate (PC) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). By application, the market is divided into aircraft, toys, home decorative and others. Due to its high strength to weight ratio microcellular plastic is widely used in aircraft segments. By end user, the market is classified into construction, food packaging, electronics, automobiles and others. By region, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East and Africa).

Some of the key players operating in the global microcellular plastics market are Ingenia Polymers Corp., Saint-Gobain,BASF SE, Lavergne Performance Compounds, General Plastics Manufacturing Company, Rogers Corporation, INOAC Corporation, Mearthane Products Corporation, and others.
