Polymer Foam Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a neutral impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The growth in the bedding and furniture industry is notably driving the polymer foam market growth, although factors such as environmental hazards due to the manufacture and application of PU may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the polymer foam industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Polymer Foam Market Driver

The growth in the bedding and furniture industry is one of the key drivers supporting the polymer foam market growth. Technological advancement is one of the biggest reasons behind an increase in birth rates and a decrease in death rates over time. They have led to the development of better medical facilities; diseases that once claimed thousands of lives are now curable with vaccines. Fertility treatments have also been invented that have increased birth rates. Furthermore, population growth across regions has increased the demand for basic household necessities such as bedding, cushions, pillows, and upholstered furniture. Thus, population growth is driving the specialty polymers market and will continue to do so during the forecast period.

Key Polymer Foam Market Trend

Augmented investment in the R&D of PU foams is one of the key polymer foam market trends fueling market growth. Primarily, investment in R&D is expected to lead to the invention of new applications of thermoplastic PU, opening new opportunities. For instance, the Dow Chemical Company has come up with the RENUVA Renewable Resource Technology, which is a green technology that breaks down vegetable oil to manufacture PU. Meanwhile, the PU manufactured using this technology has better quality and more consistency than PU manufactured using conventional methods. The RENUVA Technology has given birth to an improved generation of greener, performance-based polyols. Such increasing investments in R&D will propel the polymer foam market growth during the forecast period.

Key Polymer Foam Market Challenge

Environmental hazards due to the manufacture and application of PU is one of the limitations hindering the polymer foam market growth. 

There is an increase in the need to adopt bio-based PU foam due to the following factors:

  • Many awareness programs are being organized regarding environmental hazards such as global warming.
  • Footwear made from thermoplastic bio-based PU is comfortable to use, eco-friendly, and skin-friendly as well.
  • Bio-based polymer can be easily recycled and decomposed.

However, an initial analysis of legal, ethical, and social implications is required before the introduction of bio-based alternatives for conventional materials. Hence, a lack of awareness of these factors may hinder the polymer foam market growth during the forecast period.

This polymer foam market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2022-2026.

              • in crude oil prices: The volatility of crude oil prices is one of the key challenges in the global commodity chemicals market. The volatility of crude oil prices impacts the pricing strategies and margins of adhesives, sealants, lubricants, oilfield cleaners, polymers, as well as plastic additives. The margins of the commodity chemicals are inherently dependent on the global prices of crude oil, which is one of the key raw materials. Any volatility in the prices of crude oil causes uncertainty in end-use markets and eventually influences the margins of all the key stakeholders, including the vendors in the global commodity chemicals market. These fluctuations adversely affect the profitability, cost of sales, and the ability of vendors to effectively address the demands of consumers.
