DUBLIN, Dec 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Engineered Foam Market - Global Forecast to 2026" report to their offering.
The global engineered foam market is projected to reach USD 122.30 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2016 to 2026. High transition along with shorter product life cycles in end-use industries is another factor expected to drive the engineered foam market. Increase in the number of developments in the construction, sports & leisure, and automotive industries is also expected to further boost this market.
Aerospace & defense, followed by the medical & healthcare segment dominated the global engineered foam market in 2015. The transportation segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This high growth is attributed to the use of high-power engines with higher calorific value fuels for better combustion. The growth in medical & healthcare segment is attributed to the emerging healthcare sector; and the requirement for precision medical equipment.
The major factors that are expected to drive the demand for engineered foam during the forecast period include increasing aging population, increased shift towards technologically advanced products and others. Aging population is one of the frequent consumers of the wound care products and medical devices & components. Another factor expected to drive the market is the increased healthcare expenditure by the countries across the globe and their contribution to the overall GDP.
In terms of material type, global engineered foam market is segmented into, polyurethane, polyvinylchloride, polystyrene, polyolefin, and others. The polyolefin segment is expected to grow at a highest rate during the forecast period. Olefins or alkenes are defined as unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons. Polyolefin foam is another type of polymer foam, which is majorly used in the packaging and automotive industries. These are macromolecules formed by the polymerization of olefin monomer units.
