Expanded Polypropylene Foam to Hurtle Toward US$ 1.6 Bn on Back of High Sustainability

Increasing penetration in multiple end-use industries such as packaging, consumer goods, and furniture will propel the global Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) foam market to grow 1.7x between 2019 and 2029. The rapid surge in production of automobiles and consumer goods warrants an increase in demand for expanded polypropylene foam products. The eco-friendly and high-performance nature of expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam makes it an ideal material for a variety of applications such as elements of seats, bumpers, outdoor & indoor furniture, and FMCG products. The demand of EPP foam is expected to gain additional traction, amidst increasing investments in manufacturing sectors across major economies. EPP foam plays a supplementary role in manufacturing processes of many end-use industries. Increase in manufacturing of these products will directly impact the demand for expanded polypropylene foam on a global level.

High Density EPP Foam to Augment Growth

High-density EPP foam acts as an efficient thermal insulator and energy absorber. It is employed in energy management situations such as automotive bumpers and passenger safety measures.  High-density EPP foam will gain 1.6X growth through the forecast period with current market share of more than 53%. However, medium density EPP foam presents remunerative growth opportunities as organizations find increasing EPP foam applications in consumer goods such as packaging, furniture, and gym accessories. Medium density EPP foam will grow at a dexterous growth rate of more than 6.5% throughout the forecast period.
