Specialty Foams

The US specialty foam market will advance 5.5 percent annually through 2009, driven by heightened needs for lighter materials with better cushioning, insulating and structural properties. Polyurethane and engineered plastic will remain the top plastic foams, while silicone, fluoropolymer, metal and ceramic foams grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the $1 billion US specialty foam industry. It presents historical (1994, 1999 and 2004) demand data and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by foam type (e.g., polyurethane, polyphenylene, polycarbonate, polyimide, polyolefin, fluoropolymer, silicone, glass, ceramic, nickel, aluminum); by market (e.g., industrial, transportation equipment, medical and healthcare, construction); and by application (e.g., cushioning, insulation, structural, gaskets and seals, filters).

The study also considers market environment trends and indicators, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 31 major producers including Rogers, Foamex International, Pittsburgh Corning, Carpenter, and Crest Foam Industries.
