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

Foam blowing agents produce cellular structure through foaming process and enhance thermal & acoustic insulation and flexibility of final products. They are increasingly utilized for upgrading and improving certain properties of polymers.

In recent years, sales of hydrocarbon (HC) blowing agents such as isopentane, cyclopentane, n-butane, and other ecofriendly blowing agents have surged. Sales in the market will continue increasing due zero-ozone depletion potential (ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP) of foam blowing agents.

Implementation of stringent t regulations to reduce emission of ozone depleting gases such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HFCs) is supporting the adoption of these ecofriendly products.

Low GWP Refrigerants Market Insights- Despite growing evidence of hydrofluorocarbons' (HFCs) negative impact on the environment, their penetration remains high. Because of the environmental impact of HFCs, regulations on their use have become more stringent over time. These reasons, according to Fact.MR, are anticipated to boost the market for low GWP refrigerants in the near future. Leading countries are enacting regulations to mitigate the negative environmental effects of ozone-depleting refrigerants and to encourage end-users to utilize low-GWP refrigerants.

Hydrocarbon Solvents Market Survey- The COVID-19 epidemic caused a drop in the market for hydrocarbon solvents in 2020. Governments in numerous nations issued lockdowns, halting output and causing force majeure in a variety of businesses. This sped up the process of obtaining hydrocarbon solvents. However, due to the ease with which production facilities may be locked down and reopened, the market for hydrocarbon solvents is expected to rise at a moderate rate over the projection period. The growing use of hydrocarbon solvents in a variety of industries, from inks to pharmaceuticals, is expected to drive global demand.

Expanded Polypropylene Foam Market Report- The global Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) foam market will be propelled by its penetration in several end-use sectors including as packaging, consumer products, and furniture. The rapid development in vehicle and consumer goods production necessitates a rise in demand for expanded polypropylene foam products. Expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam is a great material for a range of applications due to its eco-friendly and high-performance nature. With increased investments in industrial industries across major economies, EPP foam demand is likely to grow even more.
