Closed-cell foams such as cross-linked polyethylene foam is extensively utilized in the packaging of medical products and equipment. Polyethylene foam is utilized for packaging sensitive instruments and devices due to its excellent insulation and vibration dampening properties and high resistance to moisture and chemicals. Open-cell foams such as polyurethane foam is used widely in applications such as bedding and provides excellent cushioning. Growth in the medical device industry is expected to further boost revenue growth of the market during the forecast period. Rising prevalence of chronic diseases, increasing geriatric population, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic are driving demand for medical devices in the hospitals, care homes, and medical centers.

Rising demand for bio-absorbable medical foams in the healthcare industry is also driving advancements in the medical foam industry. Bio-absorbable medical foams absorb blood and body fluids, expand to exert pressure on wounds, conform to the shape of the wound, and does not stick to wounds. The materials are useful in treating wounds in military, surgical, veterinary and other settings, and can be placed within traumatic wounds such as shrapnel cuts, gunshots, and other deep wounds to stop bleeding and stabilize the area.
