Blowing Agents Market is expected to be Flourished by Growing Demand from Construction Industry


The global Blowing Agents Market offers superior insulation, easy workability, lightweight, and cost-effectiveness to construction foams such as polyurethane and polystyrene foams. These insulation foams find extensive applications in various construction materials such as roof and wall insulations to regulate indoor temperatures by resisting heat flow. Growing construction activities across developing nations are generating high demand for cost-effective insulation solutions to energy-efficient buildings. This, in turn, is driving the growth of the blowing agents market. The global Blowing Agents Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4.90 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

The construction industry is witnessing rapid growth especially in the developing nations owing to increasing urbanization and infrastructure development projects. According to the Global Construction 2030 report, the global construction output is projected to grow by 85% to US$ 15.5 trillion worldwide by 2030. Rapid growth in building construction to accommodate the rising population is generating demand for cost-effective insulation foams for roofs and walls. This is prominently driving the adoption of blowing agents which are economical and help manufacture foams with improved insulating characteristics. Also, growing awareness regarding energy conservation and green buildings is further supplementing the demand for blowing agents to manufacture insulated construction materials for eco-friendly structures.
