Global Engineered Foam Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Engineered foam is a type of foam that is specifically designed for a particular purpose. It can be used for insulation, as packing material, or for other applications. Engineered foam is important because it can be customized to meet specific needs. It can also provide better performance than other types of foam.


Polyurethane (PU) is a polymer, which is produced from two basic ingredients, i.e., urethane and polyol. Urethanes are used to produce PU and polyols are utilized as raw material for its production. Polyurethanes have applications in various end-use industries such as automotive & transportation, building & construction along with consumer goods industry owing to properties such as high strength, durability along with insulation that helps retain heat within the structure.


Polystyrene is a crystalline solid that is resistant to most chemicals. It has a high melting point and can be easily liquefied. Polystyrene can be molded into various shapes and sizes, which makes it suitable for various applications in the automotive industry as well as electrical & electronics industries. Engineered polymers are derived from natural polymers through chemical modification procedures, such as polymerization catalyzed by an active catalyst or with the help of synthetic monomers/polymers.

Application Insights:

The automotive and transportation segment accounted for the largest share of 33.3% in 2017. The growing demand for lightweight materials with superior mechanical properties is expected to drive the application growth over the forecast period. Engineered foam is used as a material substitution for metals and plastics in various parts of an automobile, including body structure, interior trim components, power trains, lighting systems and soundproofing solutions among others owing to its light weight properties.

Engineered foams are also used in medical & healthcare applications on account of their high chemical resistance which helps avoid contamination by harmful bacteria or viruses at source as well as during storage & handling procedures without having any negative impact on patient health or hygiene factors such as temperature control along with maintaining required space within medical equipment cabinets that store all types of diagnostic reagents & drugs along with other healthcare supplies such as surgical instruments and associated devices etcetera.

Regional Analysis:

North America accounted for the largest share of over 35.0% in 2017, owing to the high demand from various end-use industries, such as aerospace & defense and automotive. The region is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period on account of increasing use in military aircraft and recreational vehicles along with growing consumer spending on vehicle interiors.

The Asia Pacific market was valued at USD X million in 2017 and is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rapid industrialization coupled with supportive government initiatives aimed at promoting investments across all sectors including manufacturing, construction, energy & utilities among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for lightweight and durable materials in automotive and aerospace industries
  • Rising demand for insulation in construction industry
  • Growing popularity of foam mattresses and pillows
  • Increasing use of foam in medical applications
  • Technological advancements that lead to development of new types of foam
