    Market Insights

    The global expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2022 to 2028.

    What is Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) Foam?

    EPP is a lightweight, closed-cell foam made from polypropylene. EPP is a sustainable material that can be recycled. It is also a non-toxic material that is safe for use in food packaging and other applications where food contact is possible. EPP is much lighter than traditional materials such as wood and metal. This makes it ideal for applications where weight is a concern, such as packaging and transportation.

    It is also a good energy absorber. This makes it ideal for applications where impact protection is required, such as automotive bumpers and seat cushions. It is a durable material that can withstand a lot of wear and tear. This makes it ideal for long-term use in applications such as construction and industrial equipment. EPP is a recyclable material. This makes it a sustainable choice for packaging and other applications.

    Market Dynamics

    The growth of the EPP foam market is driven by the increasing demand for lightweight and durable packaging materials, rising demand for EPP foam in the automotive industry, and growing demand for EPP foam in the construction industry. EPP foam is used in the automotive industry for a variety of applications, such as interior trim, seat cushions, and crash protection components. The growing demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles is driving the demand for EPP foam in the automotive industry.
