Global spray polyurethane foam market to surge to US$1.90 bln by 2020

The global spray polyurethane foam market poised to surge from US$1.30 bln in 2014 to US$1.90 bln by 2020 as per Zion Research, growing at a CAGR of 7% between 2014 and 2020. In terms of volume, the global spray polyurethane foam market stood at 530,000 tons in 2014. Spray polyurethane foam commonly denoted to as SPF. SPF is a spray-applied plastic that can form a constant insulation and air sticking on around corners, walls, roofs, and on all contoured surfaces. Polyurethane foam is commonly used in wall insulation, roofing, manufactured homes, seal cracks and gaps containers and Warehouses. Spray polyurethane foam is made by reacting isocyanates such as MDI (Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) and polyols in the presence of catalysts and blowing agents. MDI (Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate), TDI (Toluene diisocyanate), polyols and amines are the key raw materials of SPF. Spray polyurethane foam market is mainly driven by strong demand from construction industry. Spray polyurethane foam is widely used in construction industry in various applications such as insulation, sealing, etc. With the revival of global economy, global construction industry is expected to witness surge in the years to come. Moreover, rising demand for green buildings in North America and Europe is expected to further fuel growth of spray polyurethane foam market. However, volatile raw materials prices are expected to be major concern for SPF manufacturers. Moreover, raw materials such as MDI and TDI that are used in the production of SPF cause severe health hazards including asthma and skin irritation. This may affect growth of SPF market. Open cell are closed cell are the key product segment of spray polyurethane foam market. The open cell SPF dominated the market and accounted for over 45% of the total volume consumed in 2014. Spray polyurethane foam market is mainly driven by open cell SPF and closed cell SPF. Open cell SPF are expected to grow faster as compared to other product segments. Key application markets for spray polyurethane foam include residential walls, residential roofing, commercial walls, commercial roofing and others. Commercial walls application is expected to be the fastest growing segment in terms of revenue during the forecast period. The rapid growth is expected in this application segment due to the growth of construction industry. In addition, the increasing demand for spray polyurethane foam can be attributed to the government regulations emphasizing the importance of energy efficiency structures. Residential roofing was the largest application market for spray polyurethane foam market in 2014. It accounted for over 30% share of the total volume consumed in 2014. Spray polyurethane foam market is growing across the world. North America Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa are the key regional markets for spray polyurethane foam. North America dominated spray polyurethane foam market in 2014 and accounted for over 44% of the global SPF consumption in 2014. Europe and North America are mainly driven by stringent government regulations. Key players operating in Spray polyurethane foam market include BASF SE, Bayer MaterialScience, Lapolla Industries Inc., Dow Chemical Company, Rhino Linings Corporation, CertainTeed Corporation, Premium Spray Products, and NCFI Polyurethanes.
