$2.7 Bn Flexible Elastomeric Foam (Natural Rubber, NBR/PVC, EPDM, CR) Market - Global Forecast to 2023 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

March 29, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 29, 2019--The “Flexible Elastomeric Foam Market by Type (Natural Rubber, NBR/PVC, EPDM, CR), Function (Thermal, Acoustic), End-use Industry (HVAC, Automotive & Transportation), and Region (North America, Europe, APAC, MEA, South America) - Global Forecast to 2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The flexible elastomeric foams market is projected to grow from USD 2.2 billion in 2018 to USD 2.7 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.72% between 2018 and 2023.

The growing demand from end-use industry such as HVAC and automotive & transportation is expected to fuel the growth of the flexible elastomeric foams market. However, the lack of awareness about the benefits of insulation is expected to restrain the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Thermal insulation is the largest and fastest functional type segment of the flexible elastomeric foams market

Flexible elastomeric foams are segmented on the basis of various functions such as, thermal and acoustic. The demand for thermal insulation flexible elastomeric foams is driven as they significantly reduce energy consumption across a broad spectrum of applications such as in solar piping, residential & commercial heating & ventilation piping, and AC and refrigeration piping. It is equally important to insulate materials from sound where acoustic insulation is needed.

It is always efficient in reducing energy consumption by properties such as low thermal conductivity, water vapor barrier, and keeping product environmentally friendly. So, this drives the demand for thermal insulating flexible elastomeric foams.

APAC is the largest market for the flexible elastomeric foams market

APAC is projected to be the fastest-growing market, in terms of both volume and value, during the forecast period. APAC is estimated to account for the largest share, in terms of both volume and value, of the overall market in 2018. The market in the region is driven by the growing population and economic growth. Both residential and non-residential sectors are expected to grow in China and India during the forecast period, which, in turn, will drive the HVAC industry, thereby, increasing the demand for flexible elastomeric foam in this industry.

Key companies profiled in this report are Armacell (Germany), L’ISOLANTE K-FLEX (Italy), Kaimann (Germany), Aeroflex (US), Rogers Corporation (US), and Hira Industries (Dubai).
