Foam Blowing Agents Market Is Growing At A CAGR Of 6.0% By 2033

Foam Blowing Agents Market

The global foam-blowing agents market is reaching a valuation of US$ 1.1 billion in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period of 2023-2033.

Rising investment in the development of environmentally friendly and energy-efficient foam-blowing agents is expected to drive its production over the forecast period. Additionally, continuous demand from the construction industry, where it is used as an insulating agent coupled with a growing trend in the healthcare sector has given a boost to the consumption of foam-blowing agents.

Foam-blowing agents improve the finished good’s flexibility and thermal and acoustic insulation by creating a cellular structure during the foaming process. They are increasingly used to upgrade and enhance specific polymer characteristics. The foam blowing agent is chosen to give a closed-cell structure that limits heat transfers due to its qualities which are held within the foam practically for the duration of the foam’s use.
