Flexible Foam Market Overview
Market Research Future (MRFR) has revealed in its latest study that the global flexible foam market is set to reach a valuation of USD 39,387.5 Mn by 2023-end up from USD 27,229.3 Mn in 2017. The market is estimated to register a robust CAGR of 6.45% during the forecast period 2018 to 2023. The demand for flexible foam is projected to expand across different industry verticals over the next couple of years, catalyzing the market proliferation. However, the price volatility of the raw materials used in the production of flexible foam is likely to affect the market adversely with respect to the price-sensitive consumer base.
The boom witnessed in the automotive sector has a directly proportionate relationship with the revenue creation of the global flexible foam industry. The automotive sector has emerged as the single largest consumer of chemical foams. Comfort is the key focus of the automotive industry leaders which is enhanced by the integration of flexible foams into automotive components. The deep-rooted application of flexible foams in the automotive sector is expected to drive market expansion. The desirable properties exhibited by flexible foam such as lightweight, resilience, low odor, and resistance to mildew have opened avenues for increased demand from furniture and bedding industry. Escalated adoption of flexible polyurethane foam in the furniture and bedding industry has encouraged the flexible foam industry leaders to innovate its product offerings according to consumer preferences. For instance, with the shift witnessed towards thicker and firmer mattresses, non-allergenic flexible polyurethane foam is anticipated to be used extensively in the bedding industry. Acknowledging the need for sustainable practices in the environmentally conscientious world, companies are investing in the development of safe and eco-friendly methods based on biomass, which is likely to aid market expansion.
