North America Foam Blowing Agents HFCs, HCFCs, HCs, Methyl Formate, HFO, Inert Gases, Others) Market 2016-2020 – Research and Markets

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “North America Foam Blowing Agents Market Size, Share, Development, Growth and Demand Forecast to 2020” report to their offering.

The foam blowing agents market in North America is expected to grow, due to large base of end-user industries for polymer foams and high demand of blowing agents in the manufacturing of PU foam. The global warming and ozone layer depletion are the major environmental challenges across the globe. The U.S. government is framing stringent environmental regulations, in order to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. The development of low GWP and zero/low ODP blowing agents is creating abundant opportunities for the growth of the market in the region.

Based on application, the North America foam blowing agents market comprises polyurethane (PU) foam, polystyrene foam, phenolic foam, and others. The PU foam segment is further segmented into PU spray, rigid PUF injected, rigid PUF discontinuous panel, rigid PUF continuous laminate/boardstock, PUF integral skin, rigid PUF residential appliances, rigid PUF block for pipe sections, rigid PUF continuous block, and flexible PU foam. The demand for blowing agents in PU spray foam is increasing, due to increasing demand of PU spray as roof and wall insulation in the agricultural, commercial and residential structures.

The polystyrene foam segment is further categorized into extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam and expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam. Similarly, the polyolefin foam segment is segmented into non-chemically crosslinked polyethylene (non-XLPE) foam, XLPE foam, expanded polypropylene (EPP) beads, polypropylene (PP) foam, and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) foam.
