Market Insight

Extended polypropylene foam is a profoundly versatile material that has exceptional properties, including extraordinary energy retention, multiple impact resistance, thermal insulation, buoyancy, water and chemical resistance, uncommonly high solidarity to weight proportion, and 100% recyclability. EPP can be made in a wide scope of densities, from 15 to 200 grams for every liter, altered by molding into densities ranging from 18 to 260 grams per liter. EPP is accessible in grades vital for a wide range of uses. High-density grades are used in automotive bumpers and interior passenger safety components as energy management are vital in the sector. Medium densities find applications in furniture and other consumer products and low-density grades are used for packaging applications. Among the global producers, JSP is the world's leading manufacturer of Expanded Polypropylene plastic foam. Among the worldwide makers, JSP is the world's leading producer of Expanded Polypropylene plastic foam.


The growing automotive market is the major driving factor for the growth of the Extended Polypropylene (EPP) foam. The automotive industry is one of the largest consumers of expanded polypropylene foams. It is commonly used in automotive parts and owing to its low cost, excellent mechanical properties, and moldability which helps to reduce vehicle weight and saves fuel. In addition, increasing production of the electric cars is promoting the expanded polypropylene foam market’s growth, as expanded polypropylene plays a noteworthy role in making electric cars lightweight and thermally insulated and enhancing energy absorption capabilities. Furthermore, the reusability of the EPP has contributed to the rising preference of the material in the furniture, consumer goods, and construction industries. As recyclability and reusability are becoming a major consideration factor in the overall manufacturing sector and as this trend is expected to continue over the years to come, the market for Extended Polypropylene (EPP) foam will witness an upsurge in the upcoming years. However, the high cost of the material, as well as the availability of other substitutes, will considerably affect the growth of the extended polypropylene foam market. Moreover, the growing application of extended polypropylene foam in an extensive range of industries such as packaging, aerospace, and other industries will create fruitful opportunities for the growth of the market.


 Among the geographies, the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness significant growth in the global expanded polypropylene foam market owing to increased product demand in key end-use verticals such as consumer goods and packaging. North America is the second-largest market for expanded polypropylene foam due to developments in the automobile and packaging sectors. Recent developments in the automobile and packaging sectors in North America are expected to drive the demand for the EPP foam in application segments. The consumption of the EPP foam is also high in the European region owing to its applications in automotive components, consumer products, and buildings and construction work. The presence of key automotive OEMs in the Europe region is anticipated to strengthen automotive growth, thereby also driving EPP foam demand.
