The size of the Elastomeric Foam Market is anticipated to be valued at USD 4.7 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach USD 5.8 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period 2021 - 2026.
Elastomeric foam is the largest type of insulation foam used on the market. It is primarily used in heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), plumbing and refrigeration systems to provide a barrier to moisture and vapor entry into systems. Elastomeric foams are used as a substitute for natural insulating materials, such as cork. Its manufacture does not include chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) or hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). This makes them suitable for use even in harsh environments. They also contain a very low amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and are therefore safe for the environment. Elastomeric foams are mainly utilized in HVAC and refrigeration operations as an active shield against the entry of vapor and moisture into systems.
These are used as a substitute for natural insulating materials, such as cork. The elastomeric foam manufacturing process does not include hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), which makes them environmentally friendly, which in turn drives the elastomer market flexible. The demand for HVAC equipment is growing rapidly, owing to increasing spending in the construction sector and increasing disposable income in major economies around the world. HVAC units add aesthetic value to residential and commercial locations. Companies are investing heavily in R&D to manufacture innovative products such as hybrid HVAC equipment that use multiple energy sources for heating and cooling applications.
The consumption of elastomeric foam increases in auto parts such as gaskets, sealing applications, and under the hood, as it provides good thermal insulation and corrosion control. The growing automotive industry with increased production of light, electric and hybrid vehicles is likely to drive the demand for elastomeric foam. Moreover, due to its good electrical insulation properties, the use of elastomeric foam is increasing in the electrical and electronics industry, which is likely to drive market growth during the forecast period. The increasing use of elastomeric foam in chillers, coolers, duct systems and plastic pipes, such as refrigeration pipes and hot and cold water pipes, is likely to drive the growth of the foams market elastomers. Moreover, the growing awareness of indoor air quality is likely to increase the demand for elastomeric foam with antimicrobial additives in air conditioners and HVAC systems.
The high cost of elastomeric foams compared to other insulation methods and the lack of awareness of the advantages they offer over conventional materials are holding back the growth of the elastomeric foams market.
