Polymer foam is mainly produced by solid and gas phase mixed together to form a polymer foam. Various type of methods are used for producing polymer foam, which includes extrusion, slab-stock by pouring, and molding. The polymer foam is divided into two types, such as thermoplastics or thermosets. These are further classified into rigid foam and flexible foam. The thermoplastic can be easily broken down and recycled. Likewise, the thermosets are harder to recycle because they are usually heavily crosslinked. The polymer foams are widely used in a variety of application due to their enhanced properties such as low density and lightweight. Some of the commercially available foam has low heat transfer, which makes them suitable for insulation.
The polymer foam market has witnessed a significant growth owing to factors such as ride range of application in building & construction, automotive, and marine industries coupled with significant industrial growth in the Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, major characteristics of polymer foam such as lightweight resistant to corrosion and vibration, and recyclable further propel the demand for polymer foam globally. However, fluctuation in availability and raw material prices are the key factors projected to hamper the polymer foam market growth over the projected period. Moreover, the major trend followed in the polymer foam market is the significant shift towards biobased polymer foam due to growing environmental concern in developed regions such as North America and Europe.
