By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Global Foam Blowing Agents Market Size, Share, Development, Growth and Demand Forecast to 2020 – Industry Insights by Product Type (HFCs, HCFCs, HCs, Others) by Application (Polyurethane Foam, Polyolefin Foam, Polystyrene Foam, Phenolic Foam, Others)” report to their offering.

The global foam blowing agents market was valued at 332,690.0 metric tons in 2014, and it is expected to grow with a CAGR of 5.3% during 2015 – 2020. The factors driving the growth of the global market include increasing demand for polymeric foams in construction and automotive industries and high demand for foam blowing agents in the manufacturing of polyurethane foam

Foam blowing agents are utilized to upgrade and enhance certain properties and nature of polymers. Polymer foams produced using blowing agents are low weight, and characterized with uniform foam structure. Some of the different types of foam blowing agent are chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs); hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) such as HCFC-141b, HCFC-142b and HCFC-22; hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) such as HFC-245fa, HFC-134a, HFC-152a, and HFC-365mfc; hydrocarbons (HCs) such as n-pentane, iso-pentane, c-pentane, and iso-butane; and others such as methyl formate, hydrofluoroolefin (HFO), and inert gases. The global foaming agents market has witnessed frequent changes in the type of blowing agents used over the years.
