Market Overview

Spray Polyurethane Foam Market was valued at around USD 1648.8 million in 2018 and is expected to register over 7% CAGR during the review period. Spray polyurethane foam is a spray-applied plastic that forms insulation and air sealing barrier on walls, roofs, around corners, and contoured surfaces. It is produced by reacting methylene diphenyl diisocyanate with a polyol blend. Spray polyurethane foam provides high energy conservation efficiency and reduces the need for installing HVAC equipment by around 40-50%. It finds use in numerous building applications such as walls, vented attics, floors, uninsulated basement walls, crawlspaces, and unvented roof deck. It provides high thermal resistance, moisture vapor retardation, noise absorption, and excellent air and water barrier properties. Based on type, it is categorized as open cell and closed cell spray polyurethane foam, among which, open cell spray polyurethane foam is widely used in residential buildings and closed cell spray polyurethane foam in commercial buildings. 


The global demand for spray polyurethane foam is driven by expanding construction industry with rise in residential construction across the globe. Increase in commercial construction in developing nations on account of increasing penetration of big retail outlets such as departmental stores, supermarkets, malls, and specialty stores is driving the demand for spray polyurethane foam. Additionally, rise in construction in developed markets on account of increased requirement for smart buildings and modern architecture is likely to add to the growth of the global spray polyurethane foam market during the review period. Growing demand for energy-efficient construction materials in buildings to conserve energy sources and thus, reduce environmental emissions is likely to offer lucrative opportunities to the players operating in the global spray polyurethane market in the coming years. Furthermore, the increasing popularity of LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, certification, a green building rating system to promote green building concept, has resulted in increased construction activities globally.


Some of the prevailing trends noticed in the global spray polyurethane foam market includes product development and acquisitions. For instance, in March 2018, Huntsman International LLC acquired Demilec Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of spray polyurethane foam insulation systems in North America, to diversify its product portfolio and expand business presence. Also, in February 2017, Accella Corporation acquired spray polyurethane foam business of Covestro AG to gain competitive edge in the spray polyurethane foam market.

Key Players


Some of the key players in the global spray polyurethane foam are Huntsman International LLC (US), Accella Polyurethane Systems (US), BASF SE (Germany), Certainteed (US), Icynene (Canada), DowDuPont (US), NCFI Polyurethanes (US), Invista (US), Isothane Ltd (UK), Johns Manville (US), Soprema (France), Specialty Products Inc (US), and Rhino Linings Corporation (US).

Recent Devlopment

September 2021: JM Corbond High Yield Open-Cell Spray Polyurethane Foam added to the line of building insulation products by Johns Manville (JM), a prominent global maker of energy-efficient building and industrial insulation products and a Berkshire Hathaway company.

May 20, 2021: DuPont released a new HFC-free version of its spray polyurethane foam insulation. This is a significant step forward for both the environment and construction. If global warming is to be kept below 1.5 degrees Celsius, we must cut or eliminate two significant sources of greenhouse gas emissions in buildings: Operating emissions from the operation of a building, as well as upfront emissions—or embedded emissions—from the manufacture of the materials used in the building's construction. Spray polyurethane foam has always been a fascinating paradox: It's great for reducing operating emissions, but it's a disaster up front because the foaming agents employed were hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
