Rigid foam is widely used in various end-use industries such as building & construction, appliances, packaging, automotive, and others. The building & construction segment was known to dominate the market in 2018 and is estimated to continue its dominance in the coming years. The rapidly rising cost of energy in many countries has swayed home builders towards the use of thermally efficient insulators such as rigid foams. Rigid foams are used to reduce the heat transfer between the house interior and the external environment and have led to an upsurge in the application of rigid foam in the building & construction sector. The rigid foam market is known to grow at a higher rate owing to the development of eco-rigid eco foam in the coming years.

Rigid foam sheaths are used as insulation materials to control indoor temperature and thereby reduce the building’s energy consumption. Rigid foams made from expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XPS), and polyisocyanurate are valued for their thermal insulation properties and offer durability and moisture control. Rigid foams are used in the exterior and interior walls, underfloor, and roof assemblies to reduce the effect of thermal bridges. They also reduce or eliminate the quantity of air leaks. Rigid foams are used in walls to increase the overall R-value or thermal resistance of the wall. The use of thermally resistant rigid foams in the construction of houses significantly contributes to energy saving while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Rigid foams possess excellent structural and insulation characteristics and are seen as a cost-effective construction material. The use of rigid foams as insulation materials in the building and construction sector has started to gather pace. The rise in the importance of energy-efficient buildings is likely to spur the demand for thermal insulation materials such as rigid foams in the construction sector.

The market for global rigid foam is concentrated with some very well-established players. Some of the key players in the global rigid foam market are Saint-Gobain, Dow Chemical Corporation, BASF SE, Borealis AG, Sekisui Chemical Co., Ltd, Covestro AG, Armacell International S.A., Huntsman International LLC, JSP, and Zotefoams Plc among others.

 

Market Insights

Growing demand for rigid foam in the building and construction industry has led to the growth of rigid foam market

Rigid foam sheaths are used as insulation materials to control indoor temperature and thereby reduce the building’s energy consumption. Rigid foams made from expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XPS), and polyisocyanurate are valued for their thermal insulation properties and offer durability and moisture control. Rigid foams are used in the exterior and interior walls, underfloor, and roof assemblies to reduce the effect of thermal bridges. They also reduce or eliminate the quantity of air leaks. Rigid foams are used in walls to increase the overall R-value or thermal resistance of the wall. The use of thermally resistant rigid foams in the construction of houses significantly contributes to energy saving while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The diversification of the application base of these foams in the building and construction industry is expected to boost the growth of the rigid foam market.

Development of eco-friendly rigid foam will create growth opportunities for the global rigid foam market

Rigid foam insulators containing chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and HFCs have significantly been responsible for ozone depletion and global warming. Cellulose rigid foam insulation boards are environmentally friendly alternatives to rigid styrofoam and have started to gain traction in the rigid foam market. The newly developed cellulose rigid foam insulation boards are made from water-based solvents and do not contain harmful blowing agents with high GHGs which contribute to global warming and ozone depletion. The growing importance of eco-friendly rigid foams in the construction and building industry is expected to sway home builders to sustainable and environmentally friendly foams such as cellulose rigid foam insulation boards and rigid bio-composite polyurethane foam.

Type Insights

Based on type, the rigid foam market is bifurcated based on polyurethane foam, polystyrene foam, polypropylene foam, polyethylene foam, polyvinyl chloride foam, and others. The polyurethane foam segment dominated the global rigid foam market. Rigid polyurethane foam is widely used in refrigeration, construction, and packaging industry owing to its superior insulation properties and good dimensional stability. It is favored by these industries owing to its excellent mechanical strength at low density, and low flammability. The growing use of rigid polyurethane foam in myriad applications such as refrigerators, freezers, flotation modules, and architecture is expected to drive the growth for the rigid foam market all over the globe.

End-Use Industry Insights

The rigid foam market is bifurcated based on end-use industry into building & construction, appliances, packaging, automotive and others. The building & construction segment accounted for the largest share in the global rigid foam market. Rigid foams are used to reduce the heat transfer between house interior and the external environment. They significantly contribute towards reducing the effects of thermal bridge and effectively insulate the house interiors. Their use in the construction of houses and buildings reduces the energy needed for heating and cooling the interior spaces of buildings, shops, and offices. The most common rigid foams used as thermal insulators for building and construction uses are made from expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XPS), and polyisocyanurate. The growing consumption of rigid foams by the construction & building sector is expected to support the growth of the global rigid foam market during the forecast period.
