Global Blowing Agents Market: Growth Factors
The major reason for the global blowing agents market growth is the increasing demand for the polymeric foams especially for the polyurethane foams. It is due to the rapid up gradation in the end-user companies such as infrastructure and appliances. These agents are mainly used in the polymer industry as adhesives to inherit specific foam properties such as acoustics and shock absorbency, permeability and elasticity, weight reduction and heat and electric insulation. The polyurethane foam market holds the major share in the global blowing agents market owing to the increase in applications such as automobiles, chemicals, and infrastructure. Butanes and pentanes, types of hydrocarbon, have mainly dominated the global market. The factor that is hampering the global market growth is the strict regulations in terms of the harmful chemicals used in the blowing agents. However, there have been researching and developments in the production of the environment-friendly bio-based products.
