The global blowing agent market size is expected to reach USD 2.29 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Blowing Agent Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Product (Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC), Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC), Hydrofluoroolefin (HFO), Hydrocarbons (HC), Others); By Foam; By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The global blowing agents’ market is growing due to rising need for efficient thermal insulation properties and adhesive characteristics. They are widely used in the construction, driven by economic development and population growth. For instance, BASF, expanded production of key blowing agent components like poly-ether-amines, surged the rising demand in construction and other industries. Furthermore, technological advancements and the growing need for fuel efficient vehicles have upsurged in the global automotive production.

Moreover, there is introduction of blowing agents with better performance features like increased thermal conductivity, enhanced fire resistance, and increased processing efficiency. For instance, in February 2024, Dow, launched a technology employing CO2 as a blowing agent in polyurethane foams offering a best option for environmentally friendly insulation solutions.

Recently, there has been a significant surge in demand for environmentally sustainable blowing agents, a trend expected to project in the future. Environmental awareness and government regulations have enforced the usage of eco-friendly blowing agents. As a result, regarding climate change, consumers focus has shifted towards environmentally sustainable blowing agents, thereby opening up new opportunities for market players. For instance, in May 2023, Kumyang Europe launched Cellcom KY ECO, a blowing agent with absence of hazardous gases and characterized by complete decomposition into harmless nitrogen.
