Flexible Foam Market by Type (Polyurethane, Polyethylene, Polypropylene), Application (Furniture & Bedding, Transportation, Packaging), Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, Middle East & Africa) - Global Forecast to 2026
“Comfort & cushioning properties of flexible foam expected to drive the market”
The global flexible foam market is estimated to reach USD 64.14 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.99% from 2016 to 2026. The market is driven by the increasing penetration of flexible foam in automobiles for weight reduction and in the packaging application due to its light weight and shock absorption properties.
“Polypropylene is the fastest-growing type segment of the flexible foam market”
Flexible polypropylene foam has excellent shock absorption, and thermal resistance; however, it has low chemical resistance when compared to competitive foams. Polypropylene foam is hence more suitable in the transportation sector. Specifically, automobile manufacturers are focusing on increasing the use of this foam in automobiles due to its unique properties.
