Global PET Foam Market is Expected to Witness Prolific Demand: Projected to Grow at a CAGR of 11.0% in the Forecast Period

Published | 13 August 2021

A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the global PET foam market was worth USD 252.5 million in the year 2020. The data gathered by the study reveals that the market is estimated to grow at the CAGR of 11.0%, earning revenue of around USD 504.1 million by the end of 2027. PET Foams or Polyethylene terephthalate foams are thermoplastic closed-cell foams that are increasingly used in sandwich construction. The growth of the PET foam market can be attributed to a number of factors, including the development of end-user sectors such as construction, wind energy, transportation, and packaging, among others. Furthermore, the escalating demand for lightweight materials for the production of renewable energy sources and automobile parts is estimated to drive the global PET foam market during the forecast period.

Flourishing Wind Energy Sector Will Boost the Global PET Market

The wind energy sector is progressing at a very rapid rate. Keeping in mind the highly volatile prices of non-renewable resources, the government is pushing for the use of diversified energy sources and is taking various initiatives to promote wind energy sources by setting up plants. The global PET Foam market is flourishing immensely through these efforts as PET foam is increasingly being used for the production of wind blades as they are lightweight and extremely cost-effective. Due to this factor, the PET foam market is estimated to grow favorable during the forecast period.

Increasing Demand and Trend for The Recycled Materials Will Propel the Demand For PET Foam

Because single-use plastics are the leading cause of environmental degradation, there is a growing interest in environmental protection and sustainability. Due to this, the use of recycled materials in various industries is also rising. PET foam is one of the most widely used polymers in the industry, and it is primarily utilized in the manufacturing of beverage and water bottles. They are also highly recyclable which prevents the problem of land-fillings. Because of this, major players of different industries are increasingly using PET foam in the production of their products and other essential items, thus propelling the market growth for PET foam.

The Automotive Industry Will Lead the Global PET Foam Market in The Forecast Period

The global PET foam market is divided into many end-user segments, such as building and construction, marine, packaging, automotive, transportation, wind energy, and others. Among these, the automotive segment is projected to have the highest CAGR in the forecast period.The strong demand for lightweight materials like PET foam for the production of the automotive body and other critical parts might be ascribed to the segment's rise. In addition to being lightweight, it has many other advantages such as good thermal stability, minimal water absorption, good electrical properties, etc. That is why, PET foam is increasingly being used in the production of various essential automobile parts such as engine cover, connector housings, headlamp retainer, interior trim, etc.
