The global technical foam market is presently driven by continuous demand from the automotive and electronics industry. Expenditure on consumer electronics is anticipated to increase owing to rise in disposable income among people. This leads to the use of foam-based electronics packaging solutions for logistics. A similar demand is anticipated in other end-uses of technical foams such as the construction, medical, and sporting equipment segments. In the automotive industry, technical foams are widely used in reducing the weight of insulation, thereby improving fuel efficiency of the vehicle. In an electric vehicle, foam compression pads offer protection against shock and rattling in the battery components, ultimately providing a quieter ride for vehicle occupants. Therefore, as the automotive industry transitions toward e-mobility, the demand for foams is expected to increase and provide impetus to the global technical foam market during the forecast period. Polyurethane foams are used in the medical setting for applications such catheter and general purpose tubing, hospital bedding, surgical drapes, wound dressings, and short term implants. The demand for technical foams is likely to increase owing to the increase in expenditure on healthcare increases with countries focusing on primary healthcare services and homecare services, during the forecast period. 

Polymers are the main raw materials of technical foams, and hence, growing concern from government regarding environmental issues from plastics negatively impact the global technical foam market growth. In addition, most of the polymers are derived from petroleum hydrocarbons. Hence, price fluctuations in the prices of crude oil directly affect the final price of technical foams, thus, forcing end users to opt for cheaper alternatives. For instance, for building insulation, other insulating materials include glass wool and mineral wool. Nonetheless, advancements of additive manufacturing for polyurethane foam allows the possibility of printing products in customized sizes and shapes for packaging applications; thus, further enhancing the market growth. Such new advancements create lucrative opportunities influencing the market growth. To reduce the dependency on crude oil-based technical foams, key players have shifted their focus toward developing bio-based foam solutions. Thus, production of bio-based polyols is touted as an emerging opportunity for the global technical foam market. Bio-based foams are produced from renewable resources. Woodbridge and Huntsman are two of the major players offering bio-based foams. 

The technical foam market is segmented on the basis of product form, material, end-use industry, and region. By product form, the global technical foam market is classified into flexible, rigid, and sprays. By material, the technical foam market is divided into elastomeric, polyurethane, polyethylene, and others. The major end-use industries of technical foam market include automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, building & construction, medical, sporting equipment, packaging, and others. By region, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. 

Some of the major players profiled in the report include Armacell, BASF SE, Covestro AG, Dow Inc., Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd., Huntsman Corporation, Kaneka Corporation, Recticel, Rogers Corporation, SABIC, Sealed Air Corporation, Sekisui Chemical Co. Ltd., Woodbridge Group, and Zotefoams Plc.

Global Technical Foam Market, By Region

Asia-Pacific accounted for highest revenue share in the global technical foam market. This is attributed to the massive demand of foams in construction and packaging industries. The emerging economies in Asia-Pacific are procuring various foreign equipment; thus, improving the production efficiency. In addition, industry players adopted various business expansion strategies, which further improved the overall production capacity in Asia-Pacific.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis:

  • The global technical foam market has been severely impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe. 
  • The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the electronics industry and the entire supply chain, creating shortage of raw material supply. China is a key country for the electronics industry, owing to the presence of almost all the major electronic OEMs and contract manufacturers. The abrupt shutdown of operations due to lockdown hampered the entire electronics ecosystem. Although the situation on the supply side has improved considerably since July, the demand side has shrunk in terms of sales of consumer electronics such as refrigerators and air conditioners. 
  • The decline in per capita income leads to lower demand for various electronics products and sports, and recreational equipment; thus, negatively impacting the market growth.
  • Furthermore, due to extended lockdown, large number of construction projects are on hold or delayed for 6 months. Such changes negatively impacted the sales of insulation foams.
  • Moreover, the upstream and downstream channel have been affected due to restrictions on movement, which lead to increasing the amount of inventories.
