LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global packaging foams market report. This research report also lists 12 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Flexible foams are widely used in protective packaging on account of their soft feel and low density. They are most commonly used to pack lightweight, fragile, and shock-sensitive products, to ensure the protection of moving packaged items, heavy piece of equipment, and delicate devices from damage.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global packaging foams market is one of the growing markets consisting of major vendors present globally. These vendors operate in a fragmented market where products are sold for various end-user applications. Vendors focus on manufacturing products which comply with the fluctuation of oil prices.

“The major players have a geographical presence with production facilities located globally and possess operational capacities through strategic partnerships. New capacities are being set up by the vendors to ensure proximity and easy access to the fast-growing markets, such as China, India, and other developing countries,” says Hitesh Bhatia, a lead plastics, polymers, and elastomers research analyst from Technavio.

Other vendors in the market are coming up with new technologies and ideas to compete with the major global players. Since foam blowing agents vary with different companies, the competition is high among all regional as well as global vendors engaged in this market.
