The increase in technological developments in packaging has resulted in the growth of the global packaging foam market. The advancements in the transportation industry are positively affecting the growth of the global packaging foam market.

In this report, Future Market Insights suggests that the growth of packaging foam market can be mainly attributed to the contributions from emerging economies like India and China in the APEJ region. The packaging foam market in China is expected to be at the forefront, spearheading the growth of packaging foam, during the forecast period.

The APEJ region is characterized by a robust political, demographic, and economic ecosystem of the leading emerging economies and a rapidly growing packaging foam market in the region will lead to optimum growth levels in the coming decade.

End users of packaging foam such as automobile, construction, food & beverages, consumer electronics, and homecare & personal care industries are increasingly adopting foams in packaging to increase the safety level of their products. The increase in the manufacturing activity and industrial output has led to the growing sales of packaging foam. Manufacturing activity and industrial output remain vital to both, the developed and the developing economies. Such activities contribute to exports, research and development, and productivity which will lead to mature markets in various nations. In emerging economies, the increase in the consumption of end products due to a change in living standards and growing income has created new market opportunities for packaging foams.

E-commerce is the prime consumer of the packaging foam industry. The retail environment in developing countries such as China, India, and Malaysia has experienced a massive transformation with a significant increase in the number of retail formats such as hypermarkets, supermarkets, convenience stores, and retail e-commerce which have led to the growth of the global packaging foam market. The rising Internet penetration across the globe has witnessed a continuous shift in the purchasing pattern of an individual and has increased the awareness among the people to use the packaging foams for the safety of products. Along with growing disposable incomes and lesser time spent on shopping manually, e-tailing is gaining massive traction among individuals. In addition to this, e-commerce has reduced the destination barriers which have fuelled cross-border retailing among high-net-worth individuals.

Moreover, rising smartphone penetration and ease in the availability of the Internet are considerably driving the growth of packaging foams. Therefore, the continuous growth in the e-commerce industry along with an increase in mobile shopping is expected to drive the growth of the packaging foams market.
