Blowing Agents Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Mar 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Global blowing agents demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 6.55% during the forecast period until 2030. Blowing Agents are compounds which impart cellular structures to the polymer materials. Blowing agents are of two types namely Physical Blowing Agents and Chemical Blowing Agents. Physical blowing agents include Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), Hydrocarbons (HCs), Hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) and others physical blowing agents impart cellular structures without any chemical reaction. Chemical Blowing Agents undergo decomposition at certain temperatures and release gases like Nitrogen and Carbon dioxide in the polymer matrix to which they are added and form cellular structures within the polymer matrix. They are added to the polymer material while processing.  In the process they form cellular structures in the polymer material thereby creating foamed structures and reducing the weight of the polymer. Chemical blowing agents can be classified as exothermic and endothermic depending upon the heat released or added in the extruder while processing the polymer material. Most important exothermic Chemical Blowing Agent is Azodicarbonamide (ADC) which releases Nitrogen and Ammonia and generates heat upon decomposition and endothermic Chemical Blowing Agents are Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate and Sodium Borohydrate which release Carbon Dioxide upon decomposition and cools the system. Blowing Agents impart several properties to the polymer material including weight reduction, thermal insulation, sound insulation, impact strength etc. hence they have application in various industries requiring light weight foamed polymer materials such as automotive, construction, furniture, packaging, electronics, and others. 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused a sudden fall in demand for electronics, automobiles, and construction. Fall in end use segment impacted the demand of global Blowing Agents market for the first half of 2020. Region wise, APAC region holds the major share of global demand for Chemical Chemical Blowing Agents .

To extract data for global blowing agents market, primary research surveys were conducted with Blowing Agents manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers and end users. While interviewing, the respondents were also inquired about their competitors. Through this technique, ChemAnalyst was able to include manufacturers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. Moreover, ChemAnalyst analyzed various end user segments and projected a positive outlook for global blowing agents market over the coming years. 
ChemAnalyst calculated Blowing Agents demand globally by analyzing the historical data and demand forecast which was carried out considering imported Blowing Agents , styrene prices, monomers used for production of Blowing Agents . ChemAnalyst sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company websites, association reports, annual reports, etc., were also studied by ChemAnalyst.
