VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, July 25, 2022 / — The global structural foam market size reached USD 32.01 billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 6.1% through forecast period, according to a recent analysis by Emergen Research. The growing adoption of structural foam pallets in the food industry and industrial applications is the key factor driving the revenue growth of the market.

Injection molded plastic pallets with structural foam are becoming increasingly popular in various industries, such as food, beverage and automotive. Structural foam is made with low-pressure, low-cost aluminum tooling. The pallet has a cellular core with a high strength-to-weight ratio and an integral skin. The widespread use of structural foams in material handling equipment used for short-distance transit of objects within a manufacturing facility, as well as a number of other packaging applications, creates a high demand for these foams. Structural foam pallets are a suitable material handling option as they are durable and long lasting. The use of structural foam molding eliminates the need for a metal frame, resulting in a smooth, leak-resistant body that won’t rust, chip, dent or peel. Durable structural foam is used in the manufacture of many material handling items, resulting in a product that is strong, lightweight and performs well in even the most demanding settings.

The growing adoption of structural foam in automotive applications is creating a high demand for this product. Structural foam materials play an important role in lightweight vehicle parts while maintaining or improving vehicle safety standards. This is especially true for electric vehicles (EVs), where the battery must be protected from impact from all sides. Sales of electric vehicles have been growing steadily worldwide in recent years, creating a high demand for these pennies. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), total EV sales in 2021 were 6.6 million, more than double the previous year’s 3 million

Structural Foam Market Growth and Trends

Revenue from the polypropylene segment is expected to increase at a steady rate during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for this foam in extrusion machines and conventional injection molding due to its ability to increase stiffness for a given weight of material. This foam is widely used in trays, cups for hot and cold drinks. boxes for folding decorative foil and tapes, tape yarns for carpet backing and pallets.

The construction segment is expected to account for a significant share of the revenue during the forecast period owing to the increasing development of construction and buildings across the globe. Structural foam blocks are lightweight that are built to provide the maximum level of structural stability. These blocks also absorb the effects of gravity, earthquakes and other natural factors, ensuring that the structure is stable and long-lasting.

The Asia Pacific market is expected to register a significantly rapid revenue growth rate during the forecast period owing to the increasing adoption of structural foam in the construction and automotive industries, particularly in China and India. According to the National Bureau of Statistics, the value of construction output will account for 25.7% of China’s GDP in 2021, up from 11.0% in 2020, which is expected to boost demand for structural foam in the region.
