Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) Foam Market Size, Share (2021 - 2026)

The global Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) Foam Industry was expected to worth USD 715.9 million in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 1,048.3 million by 2026, at a CAGR of 8.4% over the foreseen period. 

Expanded polypropylene (XPP) is a kind of closed-cell bead foam with distinct properties like repellence to multiple impacts, thermal insulation, water, and chemical repellence, extended strength, and recyclability. As the word explains, extruded polypropylene foam is made by extruding a combination of a physical blowing agent, polypropylene resin, with high melting strength and elasticity and nucleating agent. This foam is mainly employed in building and construction, automotive, and other end-use businesses. The employment of low-density foam in the automotive industry is predicted to rise quickly on account of increasing call in the making of engine sheds, door liners, roof trunk liner for impact shielding.

Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) foam is typically obtained by extruding a mixture of a polypropylene resin. It offers high features such as multiple impact resistance, water and chemical resistance, high strength, thermal insulation, and recyclability. Owing to its versatile features, it is broadly employed in automotive, building, packaging, and other businesses. Extruded polypropylene foam is recyclable and eco-friendly in character.

Recent Developments 

Pregis made funding in European operations to assist growing protective packaging needs. The company recently started a new energy-efficient unit in Stevenage, UK, which includes a Customer Experience and Paper Specialist Centre (PSC) at the same place.

Extruded Polypropylene (XPP) Foam Market Drivers & Restraints

The escalating call for XPP foam from the automotive end-use business is predicted to drive the expansion of the global XPP foam industry. After so many years of high expansion, worldwide automobile sales were highly flat in 2020, on account of the slump incall in the world's key industry, China. Business tensions between the U.S and China are one of the factors behind the slowing down of the economy and auto industry. Jaguar Land Rover has taken out a decline in the firm sales owing to poor Chinese call, while Ford has pulled plans to sell a Chinese made Ford focus in the US owing to the effect of business tariffs. The rising automotive industry is one of the key factors driving the global extruded polypropylene (XPP) foam industry worldwide. Extruded polypropylene foam is broadly employed to obtain lightweight automobile parts, like bumper and door liners for vehicles. Nevertheless, the changing raw material costs and the high final product prices might hamper the extruded polypropylene foam industry worldwide.

Nevertheless, the rising call for bioplastics and eco-friendly packaging solutions across the world is predicted to create the latest industry opportunities in the foreseen timeframe. Nevertheless, the lack of awareness and increasing costs of extruded polypropylene foam are known as the key restraints for the expansion of the XPP foam industry. The cost changes of polypropylene are a key concern for makers. The unstable oil costs and future hedging has led to manufacturers searching for substitutes to extruded polypropylene foam. The cost changes have impacted the food packaging industry leading to an escalation in packaging prices that have reduced the profits. The versatile features and prices of the polypropylene foam have made these goods preferable for packaging for a broad variety of foodstuffs. There have been so many changes in the production techniques of chemicals and their respective implementations in different businesses that are predicted to drive the call for the global extruded polypropylene foam market in these areas.
