Polymer foam market: global trends and forecasts

Research And Markets : 12 August, 2013  (Special Report)
Research and Markets has announced the report "Polymer Foam Market by Types, Applications & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018".

Polymer foam materials are recyclable, lightweight and easily processed. Polymer foams are generally available as open or closed cell structured foams. The cell structures decide the physical nature of foams and are chosen depending on the end-use application.

Foams are adaptable to a wide range of temperatures and are available in various levels of hardness. The aforementioned reasons make foams suitable for many applications that demand resistance to extreme temperatures. The performances of foams reinforce their market amongst materials that have been conventionally used, which are now being replaced by polymer foams.

The polymer foam manufacturing industry is focused on developing new polymer blends and foaming agents. Efforts are being taken to develop an environmental friendly foam process, which would also render the most efficient products and cost optimized manufacturing process. This market is also concerned about the issues in waste disposal, recyclability, flammability and the effect of blowing agents on the environment.
