The global foam blowing agents market was valued at $1.2 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $1.9 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2021 to 2030.



Foam blowing agent is a substance used in the foam blowing process that expands in the matrix and imparts a cell structure to the substrate, enhancing the flexibility, acoustics, and insulation of the final product. Polyurethane foam is one of the most commonly used types of polymer foam and is widely used in various industries such as electronics, flooring, automotive, construction, packaging, and medical equipment. This trend is expected to continue for the foreseeable future, which in turn is anticipated to have a positive impact on the growth of the global foam blowing agent market.

The foam blowing agent market is driven by increased demand for polymer foams, primarily in all industries such as automotive, construction, and consumer electronics. The increased use of foam blowing agents in the manufacturing of polyurethane foams is expected to play a role to promote the growth of the global foam blowing agent market. The medical industry has grown rapidly in recent years, characterized by various technological advances. In addition, rise in world trade has significantly increased the demand for safe and reliable packaging for products that require foam-based polymers for their shock-absorbing properties. Therefore, the booming packaging and medical device industry is expected to drive global market growth during the forecast period. In addition, the improved standard of living of people around the world has consistently contributed to the growth of the foam blowing agent end-use industry. Apart from that, the surge in purchasing power parity (PPP) in recent years has contributed to the development of the flooring and furniture industry, which requires polymer foam for shock absorption. Thus, increased adoption of polymeric foams is projected to boost global market growth.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the outlook for demand seemed bleak. The contraction occurred mainly in the building &construction sector and the automobile industry. The first two quarters of 2020 had a low demand primarily due to the suspension of all manufacturing and production activities. Eventually, the demand outlook gradually recovered as regulations were relaxed as vaccination campaigns accelerated.

The foam blowing agents market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. By type, the market is categorized into hydrocarbons, hydrofluorocarbons, hydrochlorofluorocarbons, and others (that include hydrofluoroolefins, methyl formate, liquid CO2, and water). By applications, the market is fragmented into polyurethane, polystyrene, polyolefin’s, and others (that include phenolic foams and polyvinyl chloride). By region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Asia-Pacific accounted for more than 45% share of the total revenue in 2020, followed by North America and Europe. The applications of foam blowing agents in the construction and automotive industries such as for building insulation and as sealants for windows &doors drive the foam blowing agents market in North America.
