May 14, 2020

The blowing agents market reached a valuation of $1.4 bn in 2018. The market is witnessing a tremendous growth, thanks to rising diversification in blowing agents, and their end applications. Moreover, the demand for rigid foam WCs like azodicarbonamide (ADC) and sodium bicarbonate are witnessing an increasing uptake for PVC cellular formation. The rising demand will likely drive a notable CAGR of 6% growth in the blowing agents market during 2018-2026.

Apart from their PVC-related industrial manufacturing application, the blowing agents like spray foams are witnessing an increasing demand in the US. Spray foams like polyurethane and polyisocyanurate are used in building construction to provide thermal insulation for walls. Their application also reduces air infiltration. The growing trend of DIY in home repairs, the cost-effective, and ease of use of foam sprays, and high costs of housing, will continue to drive this trend during the forecast period.
