The demand for foamed plastics in the United States has increased at an annual growth rate of 4%

in recent years, the demand for foamed plastics in the packaging field has increased day by day. According to the latest report issued by the Freedonia group, the demand for foamed plastics in the United States will increase at an annual growth rate of 4.1%, rising to 8.6 billion pounds in 2017, with a value of 24.7 billion US dollars

affected by the economic crisis, the U.S. foamed plastic market has always been depressed in, and will gradually get rid of the downward trend and recover healthily in the future. Freedonia analyst Bridget MC murtrie said: "we expect strong growth in the construction industry, and this foam insulation product provides a huge opportunity." By 2017, packaging will still be the main export of plastic foam, accounting for about 1/3 of the total demand

foamed plastic is an important category of plastic products. It has a wide variety and is widely used in industry, agriculture, construction and daily life. With the rapid development of petrochemical industry and plastic products industry, the output of PUR foams in China has increased rapidly. According to the decision of banning Freon blowing agent at the Copenhagen International Conference, China must speed up the pace of finding its substitutes and realize all substitution as soon as possible. At the same time, it is necessary to develop pur foams with high flame retardancy and low smoke, strengthen the development, popularization and application of structural foaming and high load-bearing pur foams, and provide strong support and guarantee for the development of various industries in the new century

the increase in new housing projects and the rise in consumer spending will promote the application of foamed plastics in household products, such as bedding, furniture and home appliances. In the automobile market, the increase of automobile production and the improvement of safety and comfort requirements will also promote the demand for foamed plastics

flexible polyurethane foam will still be the main product type of this resin. By 2017, the demand for flexible polyurethane foam will exceed that of rigid polyurethane foam. Due to its cushioning performance, the demand for this product in the bedding and carpet lining market will grow rapidly

at the same time, the healthy recovery of the construction industry and the change of building regulations (the building structure will have higher requirements for energy conservation) will also drive the demand for rigid polyurethane foam. Rigid polyurethane foam can be used for roof and wall insulation, door and window insulation and bubble shielding sealing. However, polyurethane foam insulation materials will continue to fight against the competition from glass fiber and PS foam

ps occupies 2/5 of the total demand for foamed plastics due to its excellent protection, heat insulation, moisture resistance and low cost, and its market share is still large since 2017. However, in the field of overall packaging, the use of solid waste treatment caused by disposable foamed plastic products to promote the sharing of military and civilian resources in the field of new materials will limit the demand for foamed plastics, and the competition brought about by paper materials will also have a certain impact

in the manufacturing process of PUR foams, new technologies will also continue to emerge, such as microporous foaming process (intermittent processing and continuous processing), ultra-fine foam technology, rotary molding foaming, reaction injection foaming, blow molding foaming, injection structure foaming, near infrared (NIR) technology, dynamic pressure relief and cooling (DDC) technology, As well as new raw materials and additives required in the foaming process are the products of PUR foam development in the future. Dart container, an American waste recycling company, proposed that the particles be widely used and the Ryazan region in the Far East of Russia
