Flexible Polymer Foam Market
Polymer foams are found almost everywhere in today’s modernized world, they have their presence in
nearly all end use industries. Polymers have a wide range of applications in several industries and
institutes, for commercial as well as domestic purposes.
Flexible polymer foam is generally a mixture of solid phase (present in the form of fillers) and gaseous
phase (generally known as a blowing agent). Flexible polymer foams have significant mechanical and
physical properties, such as good heat and sound insulation, and the ability to absorb energy, which make
them beneficial in packaging and cushioning applications, as compared to solid polymers. A small amount
of polymer mass is required to gain maximum volume, due to cellular structure that traps the gas within
itself. Flexible polymeric foams can be prepared in any form and shape, such as boards, blocks, slabs,
molded shapes or in composite forms, such as metal, fabric, wood, papers, etc.
Flexible polymer foams can be divided into thermosets or thermoplastics, which are further divided into
flexible and rigid foam. Wherein thermoplastics can usually be broken down and recycled, and
thermosets are relatively hard to recycle, because they are usually heavily cross-linked to each other.

Flexible polymeric foams are formed by a process involving growth of gas bubbles in a polymeric matrix
form. When a gas is encapsulated in a dense medium, the resulting product form is known as foam. Foam
formation includes multiple stages, namely bubble formation, bubble growth and bubble stability. The

foam is expanded by increasing the bubble size before stabilizing the system, and the foam structure
changes as per growth of the bubbles. The final finished foam may be rigid or flexible, and the application
of both these types are different in a multitude of end use industries. Various types of polymers are used
to prepared flexible polymer foams.
Flexible polymer foams are used in mattresses, for furniture and vehicle cushions, and in a wide variety of
other applications. Additional applications that use flexible polymer foams are filters, packaging, seals,
and sponges. Other polymers, such as PE are also used in these applications. Rigid foams are widely used
in applications, such as transportation, packaging, food and drink containers, and furniture.
Flexible Polymer Foam Market: Dynamics
Factors, such as light weight, excellent strength to weight ratio, superior thermal and insulating
capabilities and comfort features are estimated to drive demand for the flexible polymer foam market
over the forecast period. The increasing growth of end use industries, such as automotive safety,
construction, and insulation is expected to boost the consumption of flexible foams in the near future.
The increasing price of various polymers used in flexible polymer foam is expected restrict growth of the
market. Increasing per capita consumption, and modern lifestyle are factors anticipated to fuel demand
for the global flexible polymer foam market.
