Blowing Agents Market by Product Type (HCFC, HC, HFC), Foam (Polyurethane, Polystyrene, Phenolic, Polyolefin Foams), and Region - Global Forecast to 2026

“High demand from appliances and building & construction industries is driving the blowing agents market”
The blowing agents market is projected to reach USD 5.47 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2016 to 2026. The growth is attributed to the increasing demand for blowing agents from the appliances and building & construction industries. The global blowing agents industry is expected to rise with the increasing demand in economies such as India, China, Africa, Middle East, Germany, Brazil, and others.

“HFC is the fastest-growing type of blowing agents”
Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) is the fastest-growing type of blowing agents. HFC is advantageous in comparison with the conventionally used hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) as they have zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), whereas HCFC have high ODP. Also, HFCs are currently accepted as an efficient replacement for the HCFCs and can be used in most of the applications as a drop in replacement for HCFCs.
