Structural foam molding is a low-pressure injection molding process. To reduce the density and weight with high strength of the final product inert gas is introduces into melted polymer. The structure of the structural foam is like a sandwich, the low-density core is surrounded by higher density skin. Structural foam is 20% to 40% lighter than solid polymers.
On the basis of material, polyethylene segment is expected to hold a significant share in the global market. The growth of the segment is attributed to the growing material handling and automotive industries across the globe. Properties of polyethylene structural foam such as high flexibility, impact resistance, and low cost are expected support revenue growth of segment over the forecast period.
On the basis of application, the building & construction segment is expected to hold a major share in the global target market and is expected to maintain dominance for the next ten years. Growing spending on construction in emerging economies such as India, China, Brazil, and Indonesia is expected to support revenue growth of the segment over the forecast period.
North America market is estimated to hold major revenue share in the global structural foam market and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of the structural foam market in the region is attributed to the growing production of automobiles in the US and Canada. Growing demand for structural foam in building & construction and wind turbines in the region owing to lightweight and high strength is expected to support revenue growth of North America structural foam market. North America accounts for the largest revenue share contribution of the target market, followed by markets in Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa respectively. Moreover, the presence of a large number of structural foam manufacturers in the region is expected to drive revenue growth of the structural foam market in the Asia Pacific.
