Medical Foam Market by Form, Material, Application and Region - Global Forecast to 2025

Dublin, April 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Medical Foam Market by Form (Flexible, Rigid, Spray), Material (Polymers, Latex, Metals), Application (Bedding & Cushioning, Medical Packaging, Medical Devices & Components, Prosthetics & Wound Care), and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global medical foam market size is estimated to be USD 27.7 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 37.2 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2020 to 2025.

The bedding & cushioning segment accounted for the largest share of the medical foam industry in 2019. Medical foam offers design flexibility, strength, and durability and hence is used in the construction of bedding & cushioning products such as mattresses, orthopaedic supports, pads, and others. Medical foams have compression relieving capabilities, which adapts to the patient's body shape, thus providing comfort to patients. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increase in the ageing population and the rising construction of hospitals and medical centres across the globe.

Flexible foam is expected to be the largest segment of the medical foam market during the forecast period.

The flexible foam segment is expected to be the largest in terms of volume, owing to properties such as softness, moisture resistance, high impact & mechanical properties. Flexible foams regain their original shape even after being deformed. This property makes them suitable for use in bedding & cushioning products for patients to provide them with maximum comfort and support. Moreover, due to the ability to absorb shock, flexible foams are used in the packaging of medical devices and prosthetics.

Polymer segment is expected to lead the medical foam market during the forecast period.

Based on material, the polymer segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the medical foam market in 2020 in terms of volume. The major types of polymer foam used in medical applications include polyurethane foam, polystyrene foam, polyolefin foam, and others. The growth of the polymer segment is due to the abundant availability, ease of manufacturing, and low cost compared to other materials. Foamed polymers possess properties such as low weight, heat preservation, sound absorption, biocompatibility, and excellent cushioning.

Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of the medical foam market during the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific medical foam industry has been studied for China, Japan, India, Indonesia, and the Rest of Asia Pacific. The Asia Pacific region is a lucrative market for medical foam, owing to demographic changes, increasing healthcare facilities, and expenditure. Major market players such as SEKISUI CHEMICAL CO., LTD., and INOAC Corporation have a presence in the Asia Pacific in terms of manufacturing facilities, distribution systems, and sales offices, which generates an adequate supply of medical foam in this region. The players mentioned above are acquiring small-scale companies and medical foam fabricators in the region, which drives growth in the market. Moreover, medical foam manufacturers in North America and Europe are expanding their business in the Asia Pacific region, and there is a significant knowledge transfer taking place between developed and emerging countries through active engagements in different forums.
