What are the Main Factors Stimulating Demand for One Component Foam?

One component foam is a high-performance thermal and acoustic insulating material noted for its elasticity and excellent abrasion resistance. It is composed of polyurethane polymer, pigments, polyols, fillers, and additives and is used to fill and seal joints in buildings and structures.

One component foam is highly elastic and resilient, weather durable, fire-resistant, non-sagging, and watertight, with an excellent adhesive capacity to most of the building and construction materials.

Application of one component foam insulation provides structural strength via proper bonding with the substrate. Such advantageous properties make it suitable for building insulation applications. Moreover, the insulation of buildings also brings down their operational costs owing to the less consumption of electricity.

One component foam usually expands and becomes air-tight at the surface on which it is applied. Adoption of one component foam has gained momentum over the last few years, owing to its excellent self-ceiling mechanism. This is a key factor projected to boost the one component foam market during the forecast period.

What are the Key Challenges Affecting the Sales of One Component Foam Manufacturers?

Although one component foam has a wide range of applications, several health effects associated with it restrain its adoption to some extent. Increased concentrations of the compound increase the risks of irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, lungs, and skin, which can be fatal on the prolonged exposure of diisocyanate used in the production of polyurethane. This creates high health risks for workers in factories and production sites who are in close proximity to the material.

Factors such as the absence of standards and protocols coupled with strict government policies are impeding the growth prospects of the one component foam market.

Raw materials required in its production are derived from crude oil or fossil fuel. Raw materials such as methylene polyether polyol, diphenyl diisocyanate, and polyester polyol are mainly produced from crude oil products. Thus, highly fluctuating crude oil and raw material prices are the potential restraints hampering overall one component foam sealant and adhesive market.

Such factors are likely to restrain the demand for one component foam to a certain extent in the coming years.

Which Region is a Lucrative Market for One Component Foam Suppliers?

The study finds Asia Pacific region excluding Japan (APEJ) to be the fastest growing market for one component foam. APEJ, with 50% of global market share, will largely contribute to the growth of one component foam revenue.

Growing demand for building insulation and the increasing presence of global market players in the region drives demand for one component foam. In addition, steady economic progress and improvement in the living standards of countries contributing to the growth of the construction industry. This, in turn, is expected to fuel the growth of the one component foam products market in the APEJ region.

China and India are among the most attractive countries for stakeholders dealing in one component foam, owing to the availability of raw materials and high consumption of one component foam, which is attributed to the increasing growth of the end-use industries. Rapidly growing production of polyurethane in the region, especially in China, boosts the availability of raw materials and enables manufacturers to launch one component foam products at competitive prices.
