Market Overview


Blowing Agents Market is expected to grow at Significant CAGR from 2019 to 2023 as per MRFR Analysis


The blowing agent is a chemical additive, which is widely used in the generation of gas to expand rubber, plastics, and ceramics, which results in the creation of foam. The use of blowing agent offers a range of advantages such as lightweight, heat insulation, sound & shock absorbency, elasticity, electrical insulation, permeability, and others.


The global blowing agents market is majorly driven by the growing demand from the major end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, and building & construction. Blowing agents provide lightweight nature to the automotive, thereby increasing its efficiency and reducing the emission level. They also provide insulation and cushioning effects and are majorly used for manufacturing seats, plastic interiors, and weather strips. Various environment protection regulations regarding the reduction of harmful emissions such as Bharat Stage Emission Standards (BSES) in India and the Chinese State Environmental Protection Administration (SEPA) are likely to fuel the product demand in the automotive sector. These agents are used in the aerospace industry to manufacture engine turbines as it saves raw material costs and improves quality. Moreover, the lightweight, an added advantage, is propelling their demand in the aerospace industry. The use of blowing agents in the construction sector due to its insulation properties, high mechanical strength, and ability to make thinner structures is expected to fuel the market growth further over the assessment period.


However, the environmental regulations lead to the frequent changes in the choice of blowing agents, which is likely to have a major impact on the market growth during the review period. 


Nevertheless, the market players are focusing on strategic development by the adoption of mergers, acquisition, product launch, and others. For instance, in 2014, BASF announced its new formulation of Elastocool® rigid foams utilizing Honeywell’s Solsitice® Liquid Blowing Agent (LBA) is now being used by Whirlpool Corp. in a line of its consumer refrigerators. The product was the first commercial polyurethane system to use low global warming potential (GWP) hydroolefin foam blowing agent. Furthermore, in October 2017, the Chemours Company was announced as the winner of the Polyurethane Innovation Award at the Polyurethanes Technical Conference for its OpteonTM 1100 foam blowing agent, which is a low GWP agent that offers exceptional energy efficiency, extended shelf life, long-term R-values, material compatibility, and ease of conversion.
