Demand for foam blowing agents is expected to be strong in developing countries in Asia Pacific in the next few years. The market in the region is driven by rapid urbanization and high demand for consumer goods such as shoes, bedding, and refrigerators. Furthermore, rise in number of several large-scale infrastructure projects is likely to increase utilization of foam blowing agents. High demand in Asia Pacific is projected to present lucrative opportunities for companies in the global market. Moreover, firms are relying on strategies, such as sustainability programs and acquisitions and mergers, to increase market share. Manufacturers of foam blowing agents are focusing on developing novel products with advanced technology to gain traction.

Foam blowing agents exhibit distinctive properties, particularly for construction and automotive applications, which is expected to create business opportunities. Increase in the usage of foam blowing agents in the manufacture of electronics, textiles, and footwear is expected to augment demand during the forecast period. Governmental regulations and stringent usage guidelines are expected to hamper the growth of the global foam blowing agents market in the near future.

Foam insulation is also encouraged in developing countries. The Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC), which was established in 2014 in Andhra Pradesh, India, requires commercial and public buildings in the state to cut overall energy usage by 40% to 60%. Initiatives such as this are anticipated to increase demand for insulation materials with high energy efficiency in the near future.

Key Findings of Market Report

  • Based on application, the polyurethane foams segment accounted for more than 60% share of the global industry in 2021. It is possible to reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly by using spray polyurethane foams, as they utilize low-emission foam blowing agents. Buildings can benefit greatly from the excellent insulation properties of polyurethane foam. Given its stiffness, it can be utilized for intricate applications in the construction and building industry. Additionally, usage of polyurethane foam is likely to increase owing to excellent flexibility, temperature resistance, and higher durability. High demand for polyurethane foams across several end-use sectors is expected to drive industry growth between 2022 and 2031.
