Rigid Foam Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC591

Introduction

Rigid foams are crosslinked structures and are majorly used for reducing transfer of heat. Consequently, the major application of rigid foam includes low and high temperature insulation. Foams possess excellent insulating properties primarily due to lower heat resistance of the blowing agent present among the cells. During foam production, the reaction mix arrives at a tacky phase ahead of curing which eases it to form a strong and permanent bond with any facings. Rigid foam is considered as a high performance material for insulating panels and construction.

Market Dynamics

The market is witnessing growth significantly owing to rapid utilization of rigid foam in building and construction sector as it lowers the structural weight and provides cost benefit to the overall construction. Apart from this, saving energy is the prime factor in today’s world as most of the energy is lost through walls, windows, and roofs. Growing demand for rigid foam from multiple end-use industries such as construction, automotive and packaging is expected to be a key factor driving the market growth. Also, outstanding properties obtained by rigid foam such as higher chemical resistance, light weight, light density structure, and high insulation value have increased the use of rigid foam in different applications. The reuse of rigid foam by recyclability is further expected to lead to the market growth over the forecast years.

Market Classification and Overview

The global rigid foam market can be segmented on the basis of foam type, end-use industry and geography. On the basis of foam type, the global market can be segmented into polyurethane foam, polystyrene foam, polypropylene foam, PVC foam, and polyethylene foam. On the basis of end-use industry, the market is segmented into building and construction, appliances, packaging, automotive and others. Based on geography, market is divided into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific market is projected to be the fastest growing market owing to the number of players planning to set up their manufacturing base in this region.
