Drivers, restraints, and opportunities

Rise in demand for polyurethane foam in building insulation for energy conservation, consumption of polystyrene foam in construction, and comfort provided by polyurethane foam drive the growth of the global foam plastics market. However, stringent environmental regulations regarding use of flexible polyurethane foam hamper the growth of the market. On the contrary, production of bio-based polyols is expected to open new opportunities for the market players in the coming years.

Covid-19 scenario:

Building & construction, furniture & bedding, automotive, and packaging are the prime end users of foam plastics. However, the lockdown across various countries have negatively affected the growth rate of these sectors, which in turn, affected the demand for foam plastics.

The Covid-19 outbreak led to a decline in the economy due to halt of several industries, especially the supply chain and transport. This affected the demand for the product.

The disrupted supply chain, gap in demand-supply, and lack of raw materials have negatively affected the demand for foam plastics.

However, the production of foam plastics is estimated to rise steadily post-pandemic as the demand for protective packaging solutions has increased across several industries.

Manufacturers now aim to resume work in few countries including Canada, China, and India and are planning to rebound from the losses.
