Increased Demand from Automotive Industry Drives Expanded Polypropylene Foam Market

Expanded polypropylene or EPP foam refers to extremely versatile closed-cell bead foam providing an exceptional range of characteristics such as buoyancy, absolute recyclability, outstanding absorption of energy, thermal insulation, chemical and water resistance, and multiple impact resistance. Such a wide range of properties makes it suitable for use in several applications, which is likely to support growth of the global expanded polypropylene foam market in years to come.

Expanded polypropylene foam is extensively used by automotives manufacturers, thanks to their high performing capabilities due to their recyclability, durability, lightweight, management of energy, and improved functionality. Applications in the automotive sector comprise parcel shelves, stowage systems, bumpers, myriad filler parts, seating, pillars, tool kits, door panels, head rests, and sun visors. Such multiple uses is likely to foster growth of the global expanded polypropylene foam market. In addition, expanded polypropylene is also utilized for use in the food and beverage industry. Structural strength and thermal insulation characteristics renders its ideal for use in containers such as in beverage coolers, food delivery containers. In addition, expanded polypropylene does not encourage growth of the microbes and can be sterilized through steam cleaning.
