The demand for foamed plastics in the United State

  • Detail

The demand for foamed plastics in the United States continues to rise

according to the latest report released by the Freedonia group (Freedonia satisfiable and international relevant standards group), the demand for foamed plastics in the United States will rise at an annual growth rate of 4.1%, rising to 8.6 billion pounds in 2017, with a value of 24.7 billion dollars. Affected by the economic crisis, the U.S. foamed plastic market has been stagnant from 2007 to 2012, and will gradually get rid of the downward trend and recover healthily in the future

freedonia analyst Bridget MC murtrie pointed out: we expect the construction industry to grow strongly, and this foam insulation product provides a major opportunity. By 2017, packaging will still be the main export of plastic foam, accounting for about 1/3 of the total demand

the increase in new housing projects and the rise in consumer spending will promote the application of foamed plastics in household products with an investment of about 1million, such as bedding, furniture and household appliances. In the automobile market, the increase of automobile production and the improvement of safety and comfort requirements will also promote the demand for foamed plastics

flexible polyurethane foam will still be the main product type of this resin. By 2017, the demand for flexible polyurethane foam will exceed that of rigid polyurethane foam. Due to its cushioning performance, the demand for this product in the bedding and carpet lining market will grow rapidly. At the same time, the healthy recovery of the construction industry and the changes in building regulations (the building structure will have higher requirements for energy conservation) will also drive the demand for rigid polyurethane foam. Rigid polyurethane foam can be applied to roof and wall insulation, door and window insulation and bubble shielding and sealing. However, polyurethane foam insulation materials will continue to compete against glass fiber and PS foam

ps accounts for 2/5 of the total demand for foamed plastics due to its excellent protection, heat insulation, moisture resistance and low cost, and its market share is still large since 2017. However, in the field of overall packaging, the use of an experimental machine to clamp the wedge-shaped mouth with two inclined planes is based on the above clamping method. The solid waste treatment problem caused by secondary foamed plastic products will limit the demand for foamed plastic, and the competition brought by paper materials will also cause a certain impact
