Global Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) Foam Market to Reach US$ 1,175.0 Million by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Construction Activities

December 15, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) Foam Market Report by Type (Low-Density XPP Foam, High-Density XPP Foam), End Use Industry (Automotive, Building and Construction, Packaging, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam market size reached US$ 774.9 Million in 2023. Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) foam is a versatile closed-cell bead foam that offers exceptional properties, including excellent energy absorption, impact resistance, thermal insulation, buoyancy, water, and chemical resistance, high strength-to-weight ratio, and 100% recyclability. Its manufacturing process is complicated, which requires technical expertise and specialized custom equipment. It is produced by extruding a mixture of a physical blowing agent to induce strength and elasticity. It also utilizes saturated polymers called CnH2n, which are available in fiber and plastic. It is accessible in different grades for various applications based on technical needs. High-density grades are generally used in automotive bumpers and interior passenger safety components. On the other hand, low-density grades are extensively employed in the packaging industry.

Global Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) Foam Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing product usage in building and construction activities. In line with this, rapid industrialization, especially in developing countries, is significantly contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the rising demand for reusable bottles and eco-friendly kitchenware and the growing awareness regarding the versatile characteristics of extruded polypropylene foam, such as high rigidity, chemical resistance, and high heat resistance, is positively influencing the market. Apart from this, the growing demand for lightweight consumer durables is catalyzing the market. Moreover, the leading players are focusing on product innovations and development through continuous and extensive technological advancements to meet the ever-expanding product demand. Besides, the increasing requirement for XPP from the automotive manufacturing industry that is adopting advanced technologies aimed at weight reduction of automobiles is creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, the rising consumer awareness regarding eco-friendly packaging of FMCG products is propelling the market. Some of the other factors driving the market growth include rapid urbanization and industrialization, the recyclable nature of XPP foam, and the expanding construction sector worldwide. On account of the factors above, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1,175.0 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.64% during 2024-2032.
