Abstract:

US foamed plastics demand will reach 8.4 billion pounds in 2013 as key construction and motor vehicle markets recover. Foamed urethane will remain the largest segment while foamed LDPE grow the fastest. Construction will provide the best opportunities based on growth in insulation and carpet underlay applications.This study analyzes the $22.5 billion US foamed plastics industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by market (e.g., construction, packaging, household products, motor vehicles) and resin (e.g., urethane, polystyrene, vinyl, engineering plastics, polypropylene, HDPE, LDPE).The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 45 industry players including Carpenter, FXI-Foamex Innovations and Pactiv.

FOAMED URETHANE General Demand for foamed urethane (excluding reaction injection molded, which is covered separately) is forecast to expand 2.8 percent per year to 4.3 billion pounds in 2013, fostered by a recovering economy and construction sector, as well as higher disposable personal income levels. Foamed flexible urethane will remain dominant and present good opportunities in areas such as carpet underlay and motor vehicles. Foamed rigid urethane demand is expected to expand at a pace slightly below the average for foamed plastics overall through 2013, with construction insulation being the primary growth driver. Advances reflect urethane s excellent thermal efficiency and the implementation of more stringent energy- efficiency regulations. Rigid polyurethane is one of the most effective insulation materials available for roof and wall insulation, insulated windows and doors, and air barrier sealants. Further polyurethane foam insulation advances will be threatened by competition from fiberglass and f12832
