Overview

Polymer foams utilized for packaging applications are termed as packaging foam. The market of packaging foam is expected to undergo crucial changes during the forecast period, largely driven by environment-friendly policies framed by both developed and developing economies.

Packaging Foam Market

According to Infoholic Research, the market for packaging foam would reach $22.43 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period 2019–2025, owing to consistently increasing end-user consumption across geographies amid regulatory pull aimed at controlling the pollution from plastic wastage.

Global Packaging Foam Market

Key Market Insights

Packaging foam is one of the most regulated markets, especially in food, medical, and personal care industries. The direct contact applications have more regulations than the protection packaging areas where mechanical shock absorption becomes key property. The regulations aimed at reducing wastage and increasing recycling are expected to have a direct impact on the packaging foam application market, which is expected to change the market dynamics. Few of the key regulations that are expected to impact the packaging foam market include circular economy regulations in the European Union, expanded polystyrene (EPS) ban legislation in few states of the US, and China’s EPS re-use policy & import ban on contaminated waste plastic. While most of these regulations are guided at EPS, some of these also have implications on the polyurethane & polyolefins packaging foam via recycling push. Even the EPS market is expected to grow slightly during the forecast period, with some setbacks in Europe and North American regions only.

The materials which on the face of it appear in the competition to replace the polymer foam do not possess the effective barrier properties and cost advantage as polymer foam does. This will result in the limited impact of regulations on the market, thereby enabling the overall growth for the packaging foam market. As per Infoholic Research, the packaging foam market is expected to grow to $22.43 billion by 2025, with high demand growth coming from Asia Pacific.

China leads the global market for packaging foam, which not only caters to the domestic market but also to the large international market via large manufacturing production being shipped out of the country. Further, the exploding online food delivery platforms are further enabling the growth of the packaging foam market, even after accounting for re-use policy implementation by the local government. Growing electrical & electronic industry, with Chinese manufacturing sources, is further expected to boost the country’s market for packaging foam. Further, the developing countries in Asia, Latin America, and Middle East with a rapidly growing fast food market and improving penetration of industrial supply chains are expected to lead the global market for packaging foam.

Among application segments, the market dominance of the top three applications is expected to continue accounting for around two-third of global demand, although the share of flexible packaging foam is expected to increase with EPS facing the challenges against uninhibited growth of polyurethane and polyolefins packaging foams.

The study of the packaging foam market provides the market size information and market trends along with the factors and parameters impacting it in both the short- and long-term. The study also covers the competitive scenario of the market, major players with their branding strategies, and differentiating factors among others. The study ensures a 360° view, bringing out the complete key insights of the competitive industry. These insights are intended to help the business decision-makers to make better business plans and informed decisions for the future growth. In addition, the study helps venture capitalists in understanding the companies better and take informed decisions.

The companies are competing with each other in a very fragmented market of packaging foam, wherein no company can claim to offer products for all application areas. Most of the prominent players who offer packaging foam are Atlas Roofing Corporation, Armacell, BASF SE, Borealis AG, Dart Containers Corporation, FoamPartner Group, JSP, Kaneka Corporation, Sealed Air, Wisconsin Foam Products, and Zotefoams.
