Blowing Agents Market

Blowing Agents Market by Type (HC, HFC, HCFC), by Foam (Polyurethane Foam, Polystyrene Foam, Phenolic Foam, Polyolefin Foam), and Region (APAC, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, South America) - Global Forecast to 2026

Report Code: CH 2309 Sep, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[169 Pages Report] The blowing agents market size is estimated at USD 1.5 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 2.2 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.8%. The blowing agent market growth is majorly driven by the growing construction, automotive, and electronics industries, in the emerging economies of APAC. Also, the increasing polymeric foam application globally will drive market growth.

Blowing Agents Market

Market Dynamics

Driver

Increasing demand for blowing agents from developing countries in different applications

The increasing application of blowing agents for the production of foams for use in construction, automotive, and appliances industries, especially in the developing regions of the world, is driving the market growth. Foams are extensively used in the construction industry for PIR/ PUR board, XPS board, sandwich panels, pipe & roof insulation, and others. In the automotive industry, foams are used in seats, headrests, armrests, roof liners, dashboards, and instrument panels. In appliances, they are used in refrigerator or freezer insulation, commercial refrigeration, water heater, and others. Hence, the growth of these industries is driving the use of blowing agents.

The demand for blowing agents is expected to be high in the emerging economies of APAC, especially China. The demand for blowing agents is high in this country due to the growth of various end-use industries such as construction and appliances. There is also high demand for PU foams in automobile and construction sectors. The blowing agent market in China continues to develop in size and sophistication in order to meet the demand. With the US still experiencing the impact of an economic downturn and a slowdown in consumer demand in Europe, China is seen as a major engine for the global economic growth over the next decade.

Restraint

HFC phase-out to impact the blowing agents market

The increasingly stringent rules and regulations regarding the phase-out of HFC based blowing agent in foam application, especially in many non-Article 5 countries in the past two years is an important issue in the industry, currently. The expected phase-out of HFC would continue to influence its sales and will affect the market in the future as well. The use of HFC with zero ODP & high-medium GWP in foam application had increased after the phase-out CFCs and HCFCs owing to the amendments under the Montreal protocol. According to a report by the UN Environment Program, HFC and its blends are majorly used in extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam insulation application by companies in Russia, the Middle East, parts of Eastern Europe, and North Africa owing to its cost-effectiveness and strong insulation properties. However, the current market scenario and increasingly stringent regulatory policies in these regions are pushing the foam manufacturers to shift to non-hazardous, low GWP blowing agents such as unsaturated HCFCs, HFCs, HCs, and others. This phase-out of HFC is affecting the overall blowing agent market.

Challenge

High cost of shifting technology

The technical complexity involved in the shift from one blowing agent technology to another is a major challenge for the market players. Such change in technology involve commercial concerns, complexity of interrelated technical, and legislative problems which need to be addressed. Small and medium-sized enterprises in developing countries are very reluctant to the change because of the costs involved in the conversion. However, through the Multilateral Fund (MLF) and other programs, core components required and principal activities for the conversion of end users to phase-out HCFCs are established. The conversion to HCs technology leads to high investment/fixed cost, whereas conversions to HFCs/HFOs based technology leads to high operating cost. This is a major challenge for the stakeholders in the blowing agent market.

HFC to lead the market during the forecast period.

HFC was extensively used, leading the global blowing agent market in 2018, in terms of value. The consumption of HFC blowing agent is rapidly increasing after the phase-out of HCFCs, particularly in developing region the usage is quite higher. The cost-effectiveness and the low GWP, as well as ODP of the blowing agent as compared to HCFC, is the primary reason for the increased consumption of HFC blowing agent.

Polyurethane foam is the largest market for blowing agents by foam.

Polyurethane foams major finds its applications in several applications across the globe. It is extensively used for thermal insulation in buildings, transport systems, and household appliances. Further, it is also used in bedding, seating, carpet backing, electronic, computer, dash panel, shoe soles, and other applications. Thus, the continuous demand for polyurethane foams from these application industries is expected to drive its demand, which in turn will boost the blowing agent market in the future.

Blowing Agents Market

APAC is projected to be the largest blowing agents market.

APAC is estimated to be the largest blowing agent market during the forecast period. Of China, Japan, South Korea, India, Thailand, Indonesia and Rest of APAC, China was the largest consumer of blowing agents in the region as of 2018 in terms of value as well as volume. The major production base of HCFC blowing agent situated in China and the increasing usage of hydrocarbons, unsaturated HFCs and other chemical blowing agents are the major factors driving the blowing agent market in the region.

Key Market Players

Honeywell International Inc. (US), Solvay SA (Belgium), Arkema SA (France), Exxon Mobil Corporation (US), Linde plc (UK), Daikin Industries, Ltd. (Japan), The Chemours Company (US), Haltermann Carless (Germany),  Foam Supplies, Inc. (US), and Harp International Ltd. (UK) are the key players operating in the blowing agent market.
