Polymeric Foams are mixtures of solid and gas phase together formed by the dispersion of gas in a polymer matrix. The production of Polymeric Foams with different density range can be achieved by various ways namely extrusion, slab-stock by pouring, and different forms of molding. The excellent properties of Polymeric Foams that fuel its demand in numerous applications are superior acoustic absorption, cost-effectiveness, strength-to-weight ratio, low density, thermal insulators, and flexibility.

Major companies such as BASF and Recticel offer various PU foams for diverse applications. BASF provides these foams under brands such as Elastospray, Enertite, Pluracel Foam, Pluralux, Spraytite, Walltite, Elastopan, AutoFoam, and Elastopor. Recticel produces PU foam under brands such as Sensus, Body Foams, Frame Foams, Dryfeel Rebounce, Arcadia, Polygrow, and TryOn.

Growth of the global Polymeric Foams market can be ascribed to rise in the demand for insulated foams in the building & construction industry. Rise in the demand for energy-efficient facade systems and strict environmental regulations are likely to augment the global market for Polymeric Foams in the near future. Additionally, rise in population has resulted in increase in transit of people from rural areas to urban areas. This factor is projected to fuel the demand for energy-efficient buildings worldwide in the near future.

Attributes of polyurethane foams, such as light weight, high strength-to-weight ratios, and electric and thermal resistance, make them a perfect choice for use in construction applications. Polyurethane foams also possess excellent load bearing and impact resistance properties. These foams are widely used for insulation of housings; in interior systems of automobiles including seating, headrests, and arm rests; and in Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems in aircraft, trains, and buses.

In appliances, Polymeric Foams play an important role in the insulation of refrigerators, freezers, and water heaters. Polymeric Foams are suitable for these applications, due to their low VOC (volatile organic compound) content and ease of application. Owing to their higher shock absorbency, water resistance, and resiliency, polyurethane foams are employed to protect computers and other electronic products during transportation.

In terms of value, Asia Pacific was the leading region of the global Polymeric Foams market in 2018, followed by Europe. The global Polymeric Foams market is primarily driven by China, owing to increase in industrialization in the country. Growth of the market in India can be attributed to rise in population and increase in demand for infrastructure facilities in the country. All these factors are projected to fuel the demand for Polymeric Foams in the near future.

However, use of Polymeric Foams in Europe has dropped over the last few years, due to the fluctuation in prices of raw materials and rise in the number of regulations on Polymeric Foams in the region. The market in Latin America is anticipated to expand at a substantial pace during the forecast period, owing to high demand from the construction sector in the region.
