Market Definition: Global Polyolefin Foam Market
Polyolefin is a type of polymer manufactured from a simple polyolefin through polymerization. The foams of polyolefin are lightweight, environmentally friendly, and versatile. The products are available in the form of rolls and sheets. Polyolefin foam is used in various industries such as packaging, building & construction, furniture & bedding, and automotive. Polyolefin are produced by the polymerization of olefins or alkenes.
The foams are highly resourceful due to continuous R&D effort in the sector. Depending on the performance property requirement the foam used is cross-linked or non-cross-linked. Polyolefin foams can be broadly divided into polyethylene, polypropylene and ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer foams. EVA foams are generally cross-linked and used for variety applications such as footwear, sporting goods, medical applications and other miscellaneous applications. Using the foam products is ecologically beneficial for constructed structures, as they reduce interior noise pollution levels. This characteristic is a primary reason why polyurethane can be used in high-noise environments to maintain optimum sound levels. The polyolefin foam market is highly fragmented. As such, degree of competition is fairly among players. Leading companies are facing stiff competition from regional players based in China and India. As such, companies are focusing on differentiated product development. For instance, in 2016, Toray Industries increased polyolefin foam production capacity with investment of US$ 39 million at its Virginia Plant, U.S. The plant is expected to be operational in 2018. In 2017, SABIC launched LDPE based polyethylene foam. In 2017, Dow Packaging and Specialty Packaging won Ringer Technology Innovation Award for its patented Enhanced Expanded Polyethylene foam. As per the company, the product delivers 20% greater strength than that of standard EPE resin, in 2017, Sekisui Chemical Co. Ltd, established polyolefin foam Production Company for automobile interiors in China.
