Polyolefins is likely to propel the global foam blowing agents market by 2024. Polyolefins have observed a rise in adoption in the packaging industry for the shock absorbent product packaging. The segment registered $90 million back in 2015 and will likely show substantial growth during the estimated time frame.

Hydrocarbons product segment represented over 50% of the market share globally in 2015 and is likely to grow at over 7% CAGR by 2024. Increasing product use in polyurethane foam, used extensively throughout end-user industries such as construction, furnishing, flooring, and automotive will make a positive impact on foam blowing agents market growth in the coming years.

In the United Kingdom, for instance, more patents are filed annually for plastics than those for glass, metal and paper combined. Persistent advances taking place in the development of polymeric materials will further revolutionize industries. These advancements include the emergence of novel technologies such as shape-memory polymers, light-responsive polymers and self-heating polymers.

Materials such as polymeric foams, especially are gaining considerable traction in recent years, as integral components in myriad households and industrial applications. In order for polymeric foams to exhibit their optimum performance, however, efficient insulation is paramount. One of the best ways to ensure ideal foam insulation is through the use of foam blowing agents.

A blowing agent is a substance which is capable of producing a cellular structure in a range of different materials that involve phase transition or hardening, including polymers and plastics, among others, via foaming process. One of the major reasons for increasing foam blowing agents market penetration is the capability of the product to enhance the strength and other existing properties of polymeric foams.
