The increasing adoption of foam blowing agents in various industries such as electrical and electronics, automotive and building and construction will drive sales in the global market.

Foam blowing agents produce cellular structure through the foaming process and improve thermal and acoustic insulation and flexibility of end products. They are increasingly used to enhance and improve certain properties of polymers.

In recent years, sales of hydrocarbon (HC) blowing agents such as isopentane, cyclopentane, n-butane and other environmentally friendly blowing agents have increased. Market sales will continue to increase due to the ozone depletion potential (ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP) of foam blowing agents.

The implementation of strict regulations t to reduce emissions of ozone-depleting gases such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HFCs) supports the adoption of these environmentally friendly products.

Low GWP Refrigerant Market Overview– Despite growing evidence of the negative impact of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) on the environment, their penetration remains high. Due to the environmental impact of HFCs, regulations for their use have become more stringent over time. These reasons, according to Fact.MR, are expected to boost the market for low GWP refrigerants in the near future. Major countries are adopting regulations to mitigate the negative environmental effects of ozone-depleting refrigerants and to encourage end-users to use low-GWP refrigerants.

Hydrocarbon Solvents Market Study– The COVID-19 epidemic caused a decline in the hydrocarbon solvent market in 2020. Governments in many countries have imposed lockdowns, halting production and causing force majeure at various companies. This accelerated the process of obtaining hydrocarbon solvents. However, due to the ease with which production facilities can be closed and reopened, the hydrocarbon solvent market is expected to grow at a moderate pace over the projection period. The increasing use of hydrocarbon solvents in a variety of industries, from inks to pharmaceuticals, is expected to drive global demand.

Expanded Polypropylene Foam Market ReportThe global expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam market will be propelled by its penetration into several end-use sectors including packaging, consumer products and furniture. The rapid development of the production of vehicles and consumer goods requires an increase in demand for expanded polypropylene foam products. Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) foam is an excellent material for a range of applications due to its environmentally friendly nature and high performance. With increased investment in industrial industries in major economies, the demand for EPP foam is likely to grow even more.
