Foam Blowing Agents Market Overview:

Global Foam Blowing Agents is estimated to reach $1,109 Million by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2016 to 2024. A foam blowing agent is a material which is able to produce a cellular structure through foaming process in various materials, which goes through hardening or phase transition, such as plastics, polymers, and metals. A foam blowing agent is a key ingredient in foam insulation. They are generally applied when the blown-material is in liquid stage. Its well-known property is that it could expand 30 times more to its original volume, owing to helping in filling cracks and crevices that could prevent water and gas infiltration. Various advantages such as, durability, structural strength, water resistant, and excellent thermal properties would pose an attractive blowing agents market trend. 

The major factors that drives the global foam blowing agents market are budding demand for polyolefins, polyurethane foam, and natural foam blowing agents. Improvement of ozone depletion (ODP) & low global warming potential (GWP) blowing agents, and augmented efficiency of this agents are also expected to fuel the market growth. Though, action taken by government and other organizations in different regions, against harmful agents may limit the growth of the market. Moreover, growing applications of polymer foams in automotive & construction sectors are expected to generate numerous growth opportunities for the market in the forecast timeframe.

The global foam blowing agents market is mainly categorized on the basis of product, application, and geography. The classification by product includes hydrofluorocarbons, hydrochlorofluorocarbons, hydrocarbons, and others products. By application the market is divided into polyurethane foam, polyolefins foam, polystyrene foam, phenolic foam, and other applications.
