Multi-density Foams: Next Green Thing in the PET Foam Market

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) has penetrated across a wide range of applications in the composites industry, owing to its superior mechanical properties such as lightweight, high mechanical strength, and high temperature resistance, over other plastics. PET has witnessed high demand in the foam landscape, with a substantial rise in the applications of PET foam in transportation, wind energy, and packaging industries. However, the growing demand for environmentally-friendly plastics has influenced the trends in the PET foam market in recent years.

Rise in Demand for PET Foam Core in Wind Power to Offer Lucrative Opportunities

  • In June 2017, the Netherlands-based tender for Borssele 1 & 2 off shore wind farm closed at a bid of EUR 72/MWh, while a Denmark-based near-shore tender closed at EUR 64/MWh. These low prices are due to the maturity of the industry, increase in investor confidence, and new developments in wind turbine manufacturing technologies.
  • Decrease in cost and large unexplored potential in offshore wind power is anticipated to drive the global wind power industry in the near future. PET foam core is used to manufacture wind turbine blades across the world. Increase in demand for wind turbines due to new installation across the globe is estimated to boost the demand for PET core materials in the wind power applications during the forecast period.
