Foam Plastics Market Highlights

In July 2019, Huntington Solution announced the acquisition of Texas Foam to increase its production of heat-sensitive packaging materials for merchandise sold through e-commerce channels.

By product type, the polystyrene segment accounted for a significantly large revenue share in 2020. Polystyrene foam plastic material is widely used in packaging and insulation. The material can be used according to specific application requirements, due to its versatile strength. It also has high compressive strength and hence is widely used in heavy load bearing applications. Additionally, low compressive strength materials are widely used in void forming applications.

By application, the building and construction segment accounted for a significantly larger revenue share than other application segments in 2020. Foam plastics are widely used in the building and construction industry for soundproofing and thermal insulation, among others. Additionally, these materials are used as expansion tapes and placed over vertical obstructions such as walls to provide complete floor insulation. Plastic foams are suitable for filling voids, providing roof flashing, sealing eaves and acting as a water and oil barrier. Additionally, these materials are used in expansion joints and provide noise control solutions for floor joists.
