Feb 25, 2022/IndustryNewsGlobal/ The unexpected shifts in the global markets because of the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 virus have brought many major and minor tremors to industries of all sizes including the Blowing Agents Market.
It was estimated prior to this unanticipated outbreak that the Blowing Agents Market is likely to witness an impressive CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period. The major factor driving the growth of the blowing agents’ market is the growing construction, electronics, and automotive industries, in the emerging economies of the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, the global increase in the application of polymeric foam and growing demand for blowing agents in various applications for the production of foams for use in the automotive, construction, and appliance industries from the developing countries are also likely to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
A Blowing Agent is a substance which has the capacity to produce a cellular structure by a foaming process in different types of materials that go through the process of hardening or phase transition such as plastics, metals, and polymers. These blowing agents are usually applied when the blown material is in a liquid stage. The cellular structure in a matrix decreases the density, increasing thermal and acoustic insulation, while giving rise to the relative stiffness of the original polymer.
This report studies the market covering a period of 12 years of trend and forecast. The report provides detailed insights into the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
Based on the product type, the market is segmented as hydrochlorofluorocarbons, hydrofluorocarbons, hydro carbons, and others. HFC is estimated to lead the blowing agents market during the forecast period. The utilization of HFC blowing agent is rapidly increasing after the phase-out of HCFCs, the usage is quite higher, specifically in the developing regions. Factors such as cost-effectiveness and the low GWP, as well as ODP of blowing agents as compared to HCFC, is the major reason for increasing consumption of HFC blowing agent.
Based on the foam type, the market is segmented as polyurethane foam, polystyrene foam, phenolic foam, polyolefin foam, and others. Polyolefin foam is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment, whereas polyurethane foam is expected to have the largest share of the market for blowing agents by foam type, during the forecast period.
Polyurethane foam has several applications across the globe and is widely used for thermal insulation in buildings, household appliances, and transport systems. Further, it is also used in seating, bedding, carpet backing, electronic, computer, shoe soles, dash panel, and other applications. Hence, the constant demand for polyurethane foams for various applications in these industries is expected to drive the growth of the blowing agents’ market during the forecast period.
In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the largest blowing agents’ market during the forecast period, with China, Japan, India, South Korea, Thailand, and Indonesia being the major countries with lucrative growth opportunities. The increase in the usage of hydrocarbons, unsaturated HFCs, major production base of HCFC blowing agents situated in China, and other chemical blowing agents are the prime factors contributing to the growth of the market in the region during the forecast period. North America and Europe are also expected to offer substantial growth opportunities during the forecast period.
