Polymer foams are usually formulated by combining the two segments in a speed. The resultant foam has polymer matrix either in air bubbles or air tunnels form, which is usually known as closed-cell or open-cell structure. Closed-cell polymer foam is more rigid in nature as compared to open-cell polymer. Polymer foam can be categorised as thermoplastics and thermosets. Thermoplastics are flexible in nature and can usually be broken down or can be recycled but thermosets are rigid in nature and it is difficult to recycle them as they are cross linked. Polymer foams are created through different ways such as slab-stock pouring, extrusion or different forms of molding. The global polymer foam market has been segmented on the basis of product type, applications and geography. The Polymer Foams market is classified into several types such as polyurethane, polystyrene, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polycarbonate and others. Others include polyimide, silicone foam, and microcellular plastic.

Polymer foam is attaining enormous growth owing to the growing demand of applications such as packaging, construction, automotive, aerospace, wind energy, pharmaceuticals, personal care and others. Others include rail vehicles, ship building, vacuum filtration process, industrial application and sports equipment.

Each of these segmentations has been studied to give comprehensive analysis of the global polymer foam market. The overall market has also been consolidated from the perspective of different geographic locations into standard geographic regions and key economies for this market. Additionally, this report encompasses opportunity analysis, porter analysis, pricing analysis and market forces such as drivers, constraints and challenges that are involved to drive the overall polymer foam market.
