Global Engineered Foams Market 2017-2021 - Efforts to Make Polyolefin Engineered Foams Competitive with Polyurethane Engineered Foams - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Engineered Foams Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global engineered foams market to grow at a CAGR of 7.86% during the period 2017-2021.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global engineered foams market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers sales of engineered foams in various types for applications such as aerospace and defense, transportation and other applications. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand from developing economies. The global engineered foam market is witnessing high growth in emerging economies, such as Brazil, China, Russia, Turkey, Indonesia, South Korea, Mexico, and India.

Many OEMs, such as automotive manufacturers, are shifting their manufacturing operations to these countries due to factors such as the availability of land, cheap labor, low transportation costs, and lenient government norms. In 2016, China was the largest consumer of polystyrene foam. The engineered foam market in India is also growing significantly due to the increasing use as insulating material in refrigerators and in the construction industry.

One trend in the market is advent of green foams. Improved sustainability and environmental characteristics are propelling the use of green polyurethane foams. This includes the use of raw materials with minimal environmental impact. For instance, polyurethane engineered foams are increasingly being manufactured using bio-based polyols. Some foams are also manufactured using blowing agents that have low global warming potential (GWP).
