Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) Foam Market by Type (Low Density, High Density), End-Use Industry (Transportation, Packaging, Building & Construction), Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, Middle East & Africa) - Global Forecast to 202

Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) Foam Market by Type (Low Density, High Density), End-Use Industry (Transportation, Packaging, Building & Construction), Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, Middle East & Africa) - Global Forecast to 2021

“High melt strength and lightweight properties offered by extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam is expected to drive the growth of the market extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market during the forecast period, 2016 to 2021.”

The extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market is projected to reach USD 931.1 million by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2016 to 2021. The growth of the extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market is driven by the increasing use of extruded polypropylene foams in automobiles for weight reduction. The extruded polypropylene (XPP) foams are also being increasingly used in the packaging end-use industry due to their high melt strength, excellent chemical resistance, lightweight, and high durability. Volatility in the prices of raw materials used for manufacturing extruded polypropylene (XPP) foams directly impact their prices, which acts as a restraint for the growth of the extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market.

“Among types, the high density segment of the extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
High density foams have higher compressive strength and energy absorption characteristics in comparison to low density foams. High density foam is mainly used in the packaging end-use industry as they have the ability to protect even the most sensitive and highest-quality products from damage even after repeated loading. They are largely used in packaging and automotive end-use industries to attain high energy absorption, which optimizes energy management. These foams offer high stability and strength, owing to their high strength-to-weight ratio and load bearing structural support. This, in turn, leads to increased adoption of high density foams in varied end-use industries, thereby fueling the growth of the high density type segment of the extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market during the forecast period.

“The Asia-Pacific extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, 2016 to 2021.”
The Asia-Pacific extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of both, value as well as volume. Growing purchasing power of consumers, developing infrastructure, increasing demand for extruded polypropylene (XPP) foams from various end-use industries, and global shift in the production capacities of various leading companies from developed countries to the Asia-Pacific region are the major factors leading to the growth of the Asia-Pacific extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market.
