Technical foams have wide application in packaging business for protection against vibrations and shock. It is also used in fabrication of reusable containers for transporting automotive parts. It is highly effective against handling fragile parts.
Shifting trends towards green building and advance construction projects will have positive impact on product demand. Technical foams reduce energy loss due in filtration systems which restrict infiltration of outdoor allergen, moisture and pollutants in the building. This also leads to healthier indoor quality management by vapour retardation which prevents moisture accumulation on wall and reduces development of molds. Rising importance of indoor air quality management owing to prevailing air borne disease will promote industry growth.
The report analyses the global Technical foam market based on form, material, end user and geography
Various type studied are segmented into rigid, flexible, spray. Spray technical foams are extensively used to provide acoustic and sound barrier in building construction. These foams are sprayed in roof underlays, wall cavities, basements, crawlspaces. Its key properties include air permeability, severe weather and flood resistance, and improved indoor air quality. It helps in reducing energy loss due to air in filtration, which lowers cooling and heating cost for home owners. Growing demand for smart and energy saving construction supported by increase in environment consciousness will drive industry growth.
The material segment is categorized in polyurethane, elastomeric, polyethylene, expanded foam. Polyurethane materials dominate the technical foam market owing to its functional benefits such as heat preservation, excellent cushioning and low weight. Increase in application scope in construction and automotive application owing to low density, low water absorption, good mechanical strength and insulating properties, thus promoting industry growth.
Furthermore, the major end users considered in the study are electrical & electronics, automotive & transportation, consumer products and medical. Transportation and automotive dominated technical foam market share owing to increasing preference of technical foams for fire insulation, acoustic and comfort.
