Commenting on the report, an analyst from Reports team said: Established manufacturers in APAC are trying to achieve high capacity utilization to cater to the growing demand from South America and Europe. APAC accounted for 40% of the global polymer foam manufacturing capacities in 2015. This region is the largest consumer of PU, accounting for more than 50% of the global PU consumption. There is growing demand for PU, PVC, PE, and other foam materials in APAC with China being a leading country. The large population of China and India reflect huge consumption potentials across major application segments such as building and construction and footwear.

According to the report, low cost carriers (LCC airlines) have proved to be strong competitors to all-purpose modes of transportation in the market, particularly in the developing economies of APAC and Central and South America since the 2009 economic downturn owing to changing lifestyle and increasing per capita income. High growth in LCC airlines was observed in the short-haul markets around Southeast Asia, India, and Australia.

Further, the report states that the growing concern regarding the environmental impact of PU will be a major challenge for the global PU foam market during the forecast period. Most developed nations in the world including the US, Japan, and the EU nations have already banned or limited the use of plastics. Various government regulations regarding the use of plastic bags are already in place in these nations. With other nations expected to follow suit, the growth of the global polymer foam market is likely to be adversely affected during the forecast period. CO? emitted during the production of flexible PU foam poses a threat to the environment. Thus, measures need to be implemented to regulate the production process and reduce emissions of CO?. These measures will also hamper the growth of the market.

About Polymer Foam

Polymer foams can be manufactured in various ways such as slab stock, extrusion, and various forms of molding. Polymer foams are broadly classified as thermosets and thermoplastics, which are further segmented into flexible and rigid foams. Thermoplastics can be broken down and recycled, whereas thermosets are hard to recycle owing to their heavily crosslinked structure.
