A key factor driving the growth of the market is the growth of the
construction and automotive industries in APAC. In countries such as
China and India, the governments are taking initiatives to encourage the
development of infrastructure, which is driving the growth of the
construction industry in APAC. Along with this, the increasing
industrialization, urbanization, and the purchasing power of buyers are
facilitating the expansion of the construction industry. In the
construction industry, blowing agents are used in the manufacturing of
plastics that are used in the production of cables and wires. Blowing
agents are also used to manufacture plastics for the flooring and
furnishing industry.

In this report, Technavio highlights the increasing alternatives to HFCs
and HCFCs as one of the key emerging trends in the global blowing agents

Global blowing agents market: Increasing
alternatives to HFCs and HCFCs

HCFCs are stable and unreactive. They are mainly used as an alternative
for CFCs as their chemical structure is very similar. The HCFC-141b is
widely used as a cleaning agent and a solvent agent. But its production
has stopped because such types of HCFCs deplete the stratospheric ozone,
as they have high GWP. They also produce adverse health effects.
Therefore, many countries have started banning the use of HCFCs.

"HFCs are made up of hydrogen, carbon, and fluorine atoms. They are
nonflammable and nonreactive in nature. They are used as blowing agents
in the manufacturing of polymers for the foaming process. Further, HFCs
are used in many applications such as air conditioning, refrigeration,
fire extinguishing, and solvent cleaning,"
says a senior analyst at
Technavio for research on human machine interface.
