Global PET Foam Market Size, High Demand, Manufacturers, Revenue, Growth Drivers,Traders and Product Scope till

PET foam market is expected to grow from USD 175.38 million in 2019 to USD 335.96 million by 2027, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.44%.

PET foam is a type of foam core and the newest structural core materials in the composite industry. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family, used in the manufacturing of PET foam. PET foam is unique core material as it is lightweight, 100% recyclable and sustainable, thermoformable, high temperature resistant, and has good Flame, Smoke & Toxicity (FST) properties.

Due to its high sustainability and high mechanical properties, PET foam is steadily substituting traditional core materials such as PVC, Balsa, SAN and others. PET foam is used in various end-use industries such as wind energy, transportation, marine, packaging, building and construction, and other applications.

The market for PET foam has grown significantly in past few years, owing to increasing demand from end-use industries, as a potential substitute for PVC, Balsa, SAN and other core materials. Major driving factors include high demand from wind energy industry, and growing adoption of recyclable and sustainable core materials. Also, increasing adoption in various end-use industries such as packaging, building and construction would offer more opportunities in this market. However, availability of substitute for PET foam could pose as a major challenge in this market.


Governments across the globe are actively looking for ways to diverse the energy mix and to protect the world economy from concerns related to highly depleting natural resources. Many countries around the world are making efforts to restructure their energy infrastructures, to increase the use of renewable sources for energy production. With an increase in initiatives taken by the governments, energy experts and environment agencies, wind energy industry is gaining momentum.


The emergence of PET foam has taken the core materials to a new dimension. PET is majorly used as a primary material for all beverages and water bottles. PET foam is of huge demand for packaging, building and construction applications. It is suitable for food packaging, and bakery containers, as it can retain its shape at high temperatures without losing flexural stiffness.


Although PET foam is in high demand in the composite industry, the availability of substitute products such as PVC, Balsa and other core materials, is of great challenge.  PVC accounts for nearly 50%of market share, among the foam core materials. PVC foams are been used as the most common core materials since few decades, as they are closed-cell, moisture resistant, and have good physical properties.
