Memory Foam Market Introduction
Memory foam is also referred to as low-resilience or viscoelastic polyurethane foam. Memory foam is majorly composed of polyurethane and other additives that increase the viscosity and density of the final product. Memory foam is characterized by its ability to recover to its initial shape and size after the removal of pressure and hence the nomenclature derived from this property. The property of elasticity of memory foam is a resultant of the open foam bubbles that create an open matrix for the air to move through.
Memory Foam Market Dynamics
Memory Foam Market Drivers
The demand for memory foam is expected to boom in the coming years owing to the level of comfort that products made from memory foam offer. The products made from memory foam such as mattresses can mold perfectly to bodies of any shape or size that envelops the consumer into an ideal blend of comfort and support. Also, memory foam is popular for shock absorption, and for being lightweight. Another end-use segment that is rapidly gaining traction in the use of memory foam is its design in sports shoe soles and surrounding chassis making it extremely lightweight as well as robust in high athletic activities.

After seven to nine hours of work, the preference for highly comforting, relaxing, and stress relieving mattresses and other consumers goods is significantly high among the working population of urban areas. As a consequence, the demand for comforting consumer goods such as memory foam mattresses, pillows, and cushions is expected to increase.
Consequently, the propensity of consumers to spend more on such consumer goods has increased drastically. This is further boosted by a healthy level of consumer spending on luxury items where the quality and durability of the product are more important than the price. The demand for memory foam is expected to grow further with the growing population and the increasing rates of urbanization across the geographies.
