REPORT SCOPE

SCOPE AND FORMAT

This BCC Research study covers in depth many of the most important technological, economic, political and environmental considerations in the U.S. polymeric foams industry. It is basically a study of U.S. markets, but because of the global nature of polymer and packaging chemistry, it touches on some noteworthy international activities, primarily those that impact the U.S. market such as the significant number of foreign firms that operate on U.S. soil.

As noted at the beginning of this chapter, the polymeric foams covered in the scope of this study are the older conventional foams made from synthetic plastics produced from chemical and petrochemical feedstocks. New foams made from the growing bioplastics industry are outside our scope.

All market estimate figures are rounded to the nearest million pounds, and all growth rates are compounded and signified as percent compounded annual growth rates (CAGR%). Because of this rounding, some growth rates may not agree exactly with figures in the market tables, especially for differences in small volumes. All market figures are at the manufacturer's or producer's level.
