Key Market Driver:

Research into Recyclable Polymer Foams to Create Promising Prospects

An emerging trend that is expected to catalyze the polymer foam market growth is the increasing research conducted to study the viability of recycling waste polymer foams such as phenolic foam and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) foam. A study published in the journal industrial Crops and Products’ in 2017, which created polyurethane rigid foams from recycled PET, found that the rigidity of PU foams grew three-fold and strength enhanced two-fold after adding adipic acid and glycerol.

Another study published in the journal ‘Polymer Degradation and Stability’ found that recycled rigid polyisocyanurate foams derived from recovered polyols exhibited improved mechanical properties and cellular structure compared to those made from virgin polyols. Such research studies can be utilized by players to synthesize environment-friendly polymeric foams and augment the potential of this market.
