"High melt strength and lightweight properties provided by extruded polypropylene foam is predicted to push the increase of the market extruded polypropylene foam market during the outlook period, 2016 to 2021."

The extruded polypropylene foam market is estimated to grow $931.10M by 2021, at a compound annual growth rate of 7.30 percent from 2016 to 2021. The rise of the extruded polypropylene foam market is influenced by the growing use of extruded polypropylene foams in automobiles for weight reduction. The extruded polypropylene foams are also being increasingly used in the packaging end-use sector due to their high melt strength, excellent chemical resistance, lightweight, and high durability. Volatility in the prices of raw materials used for manufacturing extruded polypropylene foams directly impact their prices, which acts as a restraint for the increase ot the extruded polypropylene foam market.

"Among types, the high density segment of the extruded polypropylene foam market is expected to increase at the maximal compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the estimate period."

High density foams have higher compressive strength and energy absorption characteristics in comparison to low density foams. High density foam is primarily used in the packaging end-use market as they have the ability to protect even the most sensitive and highest-quality products from damage even after repeated loading. They are largely used in packaging and automotive end-use markets to attain high energy absorption, which optimizes energy management. These foams offer high stability and strength, according to their high strength-to-weight ratio and load bearing structural support. This, in turn, leads to increased adoption of high density foams in varied end-use sectors, thereby fueling the rise of the high density type segment of the extruded polypropylene foam market during the outlook period.

"The APAC extruded polypropylene foam market is expected to rise at the highest CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) during the estimate period, 2016 to 2021."

The Asia-Pac extruded polypropylene foam market is expected to grow at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the outlook period, in terms of both, value as well as volume. Increasing purchasing power of consumers, developing infrastructure, growing demand for extruded polypropylene foams from different end-use markets, and overall shift in the production capacities of several leading firms from developed countries to the Asia-Pacific area are the main factors leading to the increase of the Asia-Pacific extruded polypropylene foam market.
