PS is the most dominant material type of packaging foams market.
Packaging foams are made up of material types such as PS, PU, PO, and others including PVDF and PVC. PS is the most versatile type of polymer foam. EPS and XPS are two types of PS based packaging foams. EPS foam is lightweight, composed of individual cells of low-density PS, and has high strength-to-weight ratio because its cells are not interconnected. It is useful in food service and protective packaging end-use services.
Flexible foam is the fastest-growing structure type segment of the packaging foams market
Flexible foam’s anti-static feature makes it the preferred packaging option for electronics parts and medical tools & equipment, and sporting goods. Mostly PE foams are cut according to the shape of the product or customized it in a different structure which, in turn, has contributed to the growth of the flexible foam segment in the packaging foams market.
