Inclination toward environment friendly building materials to drive PET foam market

Shifting construction industries’ preference toward environmentally friendly and high performing foam ingredients is mainly driving the PET foam market growth. PET foam ingredients are extensively used in the manufacturing of parts, casing, and housing of various automobile vehicles. Hence, rising demand for passenger cars is expected to accelerate the PET foam materials’ demand globally. Nowadays, manufacturers prefer producing recycled PET foam ingredients due to its cost-efficiency and ease of usage over virgin PET foam materials. This aspect is likely to accelerate the recycled PET segmental growth.  

Within the report, the market is segmented into raw material, grade, application, and geography. By raw material, the market is further segmented into virgin PET and recycled PET. By grade, the market is bifurcated into low density and high density. By application, the market is categorized into wind energy, transportation, marine, building & construction, and others. Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Growing commercial infrastructural development to stimulate PET foam market growth

PET foam is a thermoplastic structural foam material having higher shear and compression strength over other foam materials. The material is extensively used as a sandwich material in the field of construction, road transportation, aviation, and others. Therefore, growing infrastructural development related to the road ways and airports is expected to stimulate the demand for the PET foam materials. Emergence of state-of-art polyethylene terephthalate (PET) process technology for the production of PET foam-based bottles is likely to accelerate the PET foam market growth.   

Rising adoption in various industries is one of the major factors accelerating the market growth

The industrial applications of the PET foam materials include transportation, wind energy, marine, building & construction, and others. In comparison to the PVC-based foam boards, usage of PET foam boards in the buses, railways, and airplanes significantly reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission. This aspect is mainly driving the PET foam materials demand in the transportation industries. Increasing windmill plants reliance on using PET foam-based blades for improving the performance and energy efficiency of the windmill plant is likely to favor the wind energy segmental growth. Other industries such as marine, building & construction, etc. are also encouraging the use of PET foam materials.
