EPP foam, a type of polyolefin foams, is used in different applications such as automotive, packaging, furniture, helmet, sports material, leisure, and construction. EPP foams are recyclable and lightweight among all the competitive foams in the overall polymer foam industry. These foams are converted into molded parts (inserts) as per the requirement of end-use applications. These foams are available in low density, high density, and Prous PP foam grades.
The EPP foam market is experiencing enormous growth, which is expected to continue in the near future. The growth is largely driven by the developments across the emerging economies such as China, India, Russia, and Brazil. In the European region, the automotive manufacturing companies are laying intense efforts at country level to promote environment-friendly and recyclable products. End-user product manufacturers and their considerable amount of investments into various regions manifest the growth in the industry. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to show quite a high growth in the future, mainly due to high growth potential markets.
