The flexible segment to lead the medical foam market during 2020-2025
Flexible foam is the most widely consumed since it is soft, flexible, and resilient. The growth of this foam segment can be attributed to its lower cost compared to rigid and spray foam. Additionally, the substantial consumption of flexible foam in bedding & cushioning applications, packaging of medical devices, and foam dressing in wound care applications, among others, has been driving the market growth. The consumption of flexible foam is higher in such applications due to its properties such as softness, moisture resistance, high impact & mechanical properties.
Polymers segment is expected to lead the medical foam market during the forecast period
Based on material, the basic oxygen furnace segment is expected to be the largest segment of the medical foam industry. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the abundant availability, ease of manufacturing, and low cost. Foamed polymers possess properties such as low weight, heat preservation, sound absorption, biocompatibility, and excellent cushioning. The major types of polymer foam used in medical applications include polyurethane foam, polystyrene foam, polyolefin foam, and others.
