The sales of medical foams are expected to increase over the forecast period, owing to the growing consumer focus on health care and periodic cleanliness. According to recent market research by Fact.MR, the market is poised to expand at a positive CAGR of 4%, totaling $38 billion by 2032.

Medical foam finds applications in bedding and padding, medical packaging, medical orthopedic devices and hydrophilic dressings. The antibacterial properties of medical grade foam are boosting its application in wound care and prosthetics, further boosting the sales in the market.

Additionally, medical foams protect medical devices such as surgical equipment and digital devices including LCD screens from harsh weather conditions and ensure safety during transportation. These factors mainly favor the use of medical foam in the packaging industry.

The expansion of healthcare infrastructure is driving the construction of more hospitals and medical care centers, which translates into demand for medical foam in hospital bedding and padding.

Moreover, an increase in the demand for polyurethane foam is likely in the coming years due to its impressive properties such as biocompatibility, heat retention, sound absorption and optimal cushioning.

Medical foam is also used in bedding accessories, including pillows, neck and back braces, and shoulder support cushions. The high demand for these products will provide lucrative opportunities for medical foam manufacturers to develop comfortable and durable medical foam products.

Flexible medical foams will be in high demand during the forecast period due to increasing applications in bedding, medical packaging and wound dressings. Factors such as the resilience and soft texture of flexible foams will make them more preferable over rigid, spray foams.

According to Fact.MR, the US medical grade foam market is expected to witness healthy growth during the assessment period. The growth can be attributed to rising per capita healthcare spending and the presence of a well-established pharmaceutical industry.

“Expanding healthcare infrastructure will continue to provide tailwinds for medical foam sales. Rising applications in medical packaging and cushioning products will provide lucrative opportunities for manufacturers for market expansion “says a factual analyst from MR.
