Polyolefin foam (PO) is the fastest-growing type of polymer foam

The market size of polymer foam was estimated at USD 94.86 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 126.08 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.86% from 2017 to 2022. PO is the fastest-growing type of polymer foam because of its resilience. It is an excellent energy absorber, making it useful in cushion packaging, athletic pads, floatation devices, and occupant safety applications. It offers flexibility, cushioning properties, toughness, good chemical and abrasion resistance, electrical and thermal insulation, and compression set properties.

Building & construction the largest end-use industry of polymer foam market

Polymer foams are used in various end-use industries such as packaging, building & construction, furniture & bedding, automotive, footwear, sports & recreational, and others. However, building & construction is the most dominant end-use industry, which is driven by huge investments in new infrastructure development, new housing projects, and renovation of non-residential buildings in the U.S., China, India, and Brazil.
