Elastomeric Foams are fiber-free, and prevents condensation, and resists mold without a separate, fragile vapor retarder.
Elastomeric foams are lightweight and provide superior insulation, thereby reducing the overall weight of any structure.
The high penetration in the various end-user industry due to their high-performance characteristics is expected to the drive the growth of the market.
The rapid industrialization in the developing countries of the Asia-Pacific, which lead to an increased construction and manufacturing industry is expected to boost the growth in the Asia-Pacific region.
The global elastomeric foam market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.74 % in the forecast period (2019 - 2026).
Drivers and Restraints
The high-performance characteristics of the elastomeric foams and the growth in the end-user industries are the primary market drivers.
The high penetration of the elastomeric foams in various end-user industries, such as construction, automotive, healthcare, electrical & electronics and consumer goods due to their high-performance characteristics and their lightweight, high insulation properties would drive the growth of the market.
New high-performance materials have been developed which have been proved to useful in major application areas of the industrial and automotive sectors.
For instance, in July 2018, Armacell has launched a new product, ArmaFix® EcoLight, an insulation pipe support with environmentally-friendly PET (polyethylene terephthalate) core.
This product is a closed-cell elastomeric insulation foam with high resistance to water vapor transmission, and low thermal conductivity provides reliable thermal protection and condensation control.
However, the lack of awareness about the benefits of insulation using elastomeric foams in the underdeveloped countries would hamper the growth of the market. Moreover, most of the elastomeric foams are not biodegradable and pose difficulties in disposing of them which might further reduce the market development.
