Spray Polyurethane Foam Market Segment Analysis - By Raw Material
Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) held the largest share in the spray polyurethane foams market in the year 2020. Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) is a type of di isocyanates which is increasingly used in the production of versatile product such as spray polyurethane foams that is used in a variety of applications such as insulation, waterproofing, sealants, and others. Increasing usage of di isocyanate such as MDI to add surface protection and rigid strength in the spray foam has further uplifted the market growth. Also, the rising application of spray polyurethane foam in insulation or roofing done using methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) can help save heating and cooling costs and conserve energy. Thus, due to such factors the growing demand for MDI in the production of spray polyurethane foam is estimated to rise in the forecast period.
Spray Polyurethane Foam Market Segment Analysis- By Application
Insulation held the largest share in the spray polyurethane foams market with 26% in the year 2020. Spray polyurethane foams are the most reliable insulation materials used for roof and wall insulation, sealed windows and doors, and air barrier sealants. Spray polyurethane foam systems are an excellent way to meet stringent insulation requirements while also controlling excessive air leakage and preventing condensation. Since the foam seals all holes and moulds to all contours, the insulation performance is among the highest accessible. Furthermore, spray polyurethane foam's widespread use for insulation in building envelope assemblies, such as walls, ceilings, floors, attics, crawl spaces, and roofing, is directly linked to code-mandated energy efficiency improvements, especially requirements for reducing building air leakage. Thus, with the growing demand for spray polyurethane foams for insulation applications, the market is anticipated to rise in the forecast period.
Spray Polyurethane Foam Market Segment Analysis- By End Use Industry
Commercial segment held the largest share in the spray polyurethane foams market in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Increasing usage of spray polyurethane foams in the commercial facilities to provide proper insulating barrier for flat roofs and low slope has driven the market growth. Currently, the spray polyurethane foams are considered as the most resilient and durable commercial roofing materials by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Additionally, with the rising commercial constructions it is anticipated that the market for spray polyurethane foams would also rise in the forecast period. For instance, In January 2021, the real estate developer Prestige Group announced that in the next 5-7 years, the group intends to construct large office space across multiple cities. The company is planning to rebuild the office portfolio with a mix of standalone buildings (400,000-500,000 sq. ft.) and office parks. Therefore, the increasing use of spray polyurethane foams in rebuilding commercial construction activities is expected to drive the growth of the market in the forecast period.
Spray Polyurethane Foam Market Segment Analysis- By Geography
The Asia Pacific region held the largest share with 39% in the spray polyurethane foams market in 2020, due to growing building and construction activities from different countries. The rising disposable income and consumer urbanization in Asia have seen a substantial rise in the construction sectors. China is the leading construction market in the world. According to the International Trade Administration (ITA), China is the world’s largest construction market and the industry is forecasted to grow at an annual average of 5% in real terms between 2019 and 2023.Thus, the demand for the spray polyurethane foams market is therefore anticipated to increase in the APAC region over the forecast period.
Spray Polyurethane Foam Market Drivers
Rising Demand for Spray Polyurethane Foam for Energy Efficiency Solutions
Air infiltration can result in a loss of up to 40% of a building's capacity. Energy bills may be inflated excessively due to gaps, holes, and air leaks. Henceforth, spray polyurethane foam acts as both an insulator and an air barrier, sealing holes that allow air to escape and drive up the energy costs. Maintaining a well-functioning heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can also save capital on electricity. Thus, with the increasing usage of spray polyurethane foam HVAC sizing can be minimized. Moreover, spray polyurethane foam can be used to seal air leaks that waste energy and boost utility bills. Thus, with an increasing demand for spray polyurethane foam for energy efficiency solutions, the market is anticipated to rise over the forecast period.
Increasing Usage of Spray Polyurethane Foam in Packaging Applications
Spray polyurethane foam is a highly specialized packaging material that is frequently required when shipping precious and fragile objects. Sculptures, vases, big fossils, lamp bases, busts, computers, furniture, chandeliers, and other unusually shaped things are all protected using engineered packing techniques. Liquid foam effectively covers practically any size, shape, or weight by expanding up to 30-60 times the volume of its liquid condition. Owing to its easy installation, less required space, and safe use, it is increasingly used in the packaging applications. Moreover spray polyurethane foam is used in high-performance packaging solutions to safeguard the products from damage throughout the shipping process. Thus, the rising demand for spray polyurethane foam in the packaging industry will raise the market demand in the projected period.
Spray Polyurethane Foam Market Challenges
High maintenance and overspray potential
Rising concerns owing to the high maintenance and overspray potential of spray polyurethane foam in roofing systems is estimated to hamper the growth of the market. Even if there is no established damage, spray polyurethane foam (SPF) in roofing systems should be tested twice a year. Also, particularly after potentially damaging weather events like hail storms, tornadoes, and hurricanes, where there are high chances of damage caused to the spray polyurethane foam roofing systems. Moreover, since the spray polyurethane foam(SPF) roof is applied by spray, there is a chance of overspray being carried by the wind onto nearby cars and other surfaces. While this is not a health hazard, it is a risk for the property in the particular area. As a result, the high maintenance and overspray potential is considered as the affects hindering the growth of the spray polyurethane foam market.
