Introduction

A blowing agent is a substance which has the capability to produce a cellular structure. This agent is in liquid form which is then converted to the foam. The cellular structure in a matrix helps in minimizing the density, increasing acoustic and thermal insulation. A number of different foam types are used which includes polyurethane foam, phenolic foam, polystyrene foam, and others. These foam has found a wide array of application in automate sector, building and construction, furniture, and others.

Market Dynamics

Blowing agents have insulation property which is most widely used in the construction activity. Owing to its thermal insulation applications they are also used in various electrical appliances. Increasing building and construction activities, rising demand for the various electrical appliances and increasing need of the better insulating material for the various parts in automotive industries. Due to the stricts regulation especially in European and American region has increased the demand for the product, helping in driving the growth of the market.  Polymer foam holds the major share in the market and is widely used in the construction activities. The polymer foam holds the share of over 50% in the total market.

However, introduction of the advanced material has increased the alternative choices of the products which has slow the growth of the market.

Market Classification and Overview

The global blowing agents market is majorly segmented into foam type, product type, and application. On the basis of foam types, the market is segmented into polyurethane foam, phenolic foam, polystyrene foam. Polyurethane foam is further segmented into flexible foam, rigid foam, and others. Polystyrene foam is subsegmented into Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) and Expanded Polystyrene (EPS). Phenolic foam is further bifurcated into polyethylene foam, polypropylene foam, and others.
