Global Technical Foam Market Assessment 2020-2025: Elastomeric, PU, PE, Expanded Foam - ResearchAndMarkets.com

The "Technical Foam Market by Form (Flexible, Rigid, Spray), Material (Elastomeric, PU, PE, Expanded Foam), End Use (Electricals & Electronics, Automotive & Transportation, Commercial Buildings, Office Equipment, Medical), and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global technical foam market is estimated to be USD 9,104 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 15,750 million by 2025, rising at a CAGR of 11.6%.

Technical foams find wide application in the automotive & transportation sector, which includes automotive, aviation, marine, and other transportation. They also witness demand as acoustic solutions to tackle noise pollution. These factors drive the growth of the technical foam market.

The automotive & transportation segment is expected to hold the largest share of the technical foam market during the forecast period.

The automotive & transportation segment accounted for the largest share of the technical foam market in 2019. The insulation benefits that technical foam provides in automotive & transportation include heat shields, battery insulation, fire protection, and insulation for data recorders. Fireproofing of the bodywork and interiors is a key part of vehicle safety. High-temperature insulation improves vehicle safety, supports advanced technological vehicle components, and extends the useful lifespan of vehicles on the road, air, and water.

Spray foam is expected to witness the highest growth in the technical foam market during the forecast period.

The spray foam segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to its ease of manufacturing and convenience of application. Spray foams are widely used in insulation and acoustic applications in the building & construction industry since they act as air barriers, which means they expand quickly and fill up cracks and crevices. They also reduce air leakage through building envelopes, which, in turn, helps in lowering the cooling and heating costs of buildings.

Polyurethane segment is expected to lead the technical foam market during the forecast period.

Based on material, the polyurethane segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the technical foam market in 2020. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increase in demand from the automotive & transportation, commercial buildings, electricals & electronics, office equipment, and medical end uses. The demand in these end uses is due to the low heat conduction coefficient, low density, low water absorption, relatively good mechanical strength, and insulating properties of PU foam.

Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of the technical foam market during the forecast period.

The Asia-Pacific technical foam market has been studied for China, Japan, India, South Korea, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific. This region is a lucrative market for technical foam, owing to demographic changes, improving economic conditions of emerging economies, and increasing industrialization. Major market players such as SEKISUI CHEMICAL CO., LTD., and INOAC Corporation have a presence in the Asia-Pacific in terms of manufacturing facilities, distribution systems, and sales offices, which generates an adequate supply of technical foam in this region.

The players mentioned above are acquiring small-scale companies and technical foam fabricators in the region, which drives the market growth. Moreover, technical foam manufacturers in North America and Europe are expanding their business in the Asia-Pacific region, and there is a significant knowledge transfer taking place between developed and emerging countries through active engagements in different forums.
