Blowing agents are substances that produce a cellular structure through a foaming process in a wide a range of materials such as plastics, polymers, and metals. This cellular structure helps in reducing density and enhancing the acoustic & thermal insulation while increasing the stiffness of the original polymer. The demand from the application sector is the major factor driving the growth of the global foam blowing agents market. Some of the major applications of the foam blowing agents are building & construction, automotive, food packaging, and electronics.
Among the various product type in foam blowing agents market, the hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) is the leading segment of the market and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. This growth is attributed to increasing use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) as a substitute for the high global warming potential hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCS). They are extensively used in air conditioning, refrigeration, building insulation, and fire extinguishing among others. The growing urbanization and globalization in the developing regions across the globe is expected to boost the market during the forecast years. The global foam blowing agents market is expected to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast years.
