Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) Foam Market by Type (Low Density, High Density & Porous PP) and by Application (Automotive, Packaging, Consumer Products & Others) - Global Forecast to 2019

Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) Foam Market by Type (Low Density, High Density & Porous PP) and by Application (Automotive, Packaging, Consumer Products & Others) - Global Forecast to 2019

EPP foam, a type of polyolefin foams, is used in different applications such as automotive, packaging, furniture, helmet, sports material, leisure, and construction. EPP foams are recyclable and lightweight among all the competitive foams in the overall polymer foam industry. These foams are converted into molded parts (inserts) as per the requirement of end-use applications. These foams are available in low density, high density, and Prous PP foam grades.

The EPP foam market is experiencing enormous growth, which is expected to continue in the near future. The growth is largely driven by the developments across the emerging economies such as China, India, Russia, and Brazil. In the European region, the automotive manufacturing companies are laying intense efforts at country level to promote environment-friendly and recyclable products. End-user product manufacturers and their considerable amount of investments into various regions manifest the growth in the industry. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to show quite a high growth in the future, mainly due to high growth potential markets.

This study basically aims at estimating the global market of EPP foam for 20134 and to project the demand by 2019. This research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global EPP foam market. It provides a comprehensive review of important market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, challenges, and key issues in the market. The market is segmented and projected for important regions such as Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and RoW, which is further segmented for key countries in each region. Various secondary sources such as encyclopedia, directories, and databases are used to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of the EPP foam market. The primary sources that include experts from related industries and suppliers have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of the EPP foam market.
