Flexible foam segment to lead the technical foam market during 2020-2025
Flexible foam is the most widely consumed since it is soft, flexible, and resilient. The growth of this segment can be attributed to its lower cost compared to rigid and spray foam. It can also be attributed to the consumption of these foams for manufacturing automotive, commercial building insulation, office equipment, and others due to their softness, moisture resistance, and high impact & mechanical properties. Moreover, flexible foams regain their original shape even after being deformed. Hence, the consumption of flexible foam is higher in such end uses.

Automotive & transport segment is expected to register the fastest growth during the forecast period
Automotive & transport segment is expected to register the fastest growth in the global technical foam market during the forecast period. The growth rate can be attributed to the increasing application areas of technical foam and its ability to perform in adverse environments, which has led to an increase in its consumption in the automotive & transportation sector. Increasing demand for better vehicle operational & environmental efficiency, temperature control, superior dielectric insulation qualities, and thermal conductivity of various materials make technical foam suited for a broad range of specialist automotive applications.
