Market Overview:
Foam cooler boxes are insulated portable boxes used for keeping food, drinks and other perishable items cool for limited durations. The lightweight and durable foam construction along with reusable design make foam cooler boxes an eco-friendly alternative to single use plastic cooler boxes.

Market key trends:
Foam cooler boxes are increasingly gaining popularity over traditional plastic/styrofoam coolers due to their eco-friendly reusable design. They keep beverages cool for 24 hours and food cool for up to 4 days. The rising demand for sustainable packaging solutions from recreational and camping activities is boosting the sales of foam coolers globally. In addition, the growing organized retail and e-commerce sectors are offering foam cooler boxes in varied styles, sizes and price points to cater diverse consumer needs, driving their market growth. Foam cooler boxes emerged as a preferred choice for outdoor leisure, travel and picnics during the pandemic as people looked for safe and hygienic ways to carry and store food. This further accelerated the market demand over the recent past.

SWOT Analysis
