    What is spray polyurethane foam?

    SPF insulation applied by professionals is generally defined as either high- or low-pressure foam, and it is available in open- or closed-cell configurations. Depending on the application requirements, each type offers advantages and disadvantages.

    A spray-applied cellular plastic named 'Spray Polyurethane Foam' (SPF) is made by a combination of chemicals to create foam. These chemicals react immediately, expanding on contact to form foam that insulates, closes the air, and acts as a moisture barrier. 
    SPF, when installed correctly, forms a continuous barrier on walls, around corners, and on curved surfaces. It is the right choice for reducing undesired air infiltration through cracks, seams, and joints since it resists heat transfer efficiently.

    When compared to standard insulating materials, spray foam insulation (SPF) is more efficient, making it a good choice for the building industry. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the combustion of fossil fuels for electricity generation accounts for 10%–12% of total greenhouse gas emissions. Spray polyurethane foam provides great thermal resistance, lower utility costs, and can reduce heat transfers significantly, making them an effective choice for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It also acts as a barrier to air and bulk water, as well as a moisture vapor retardant.

    Market Dynamics

    Spray foam insulation currently holds a niche share (<10%) of the overall insulation market (fiberglass, flexible foam, glass wool, rock wool, elastomeric foams, etc.). However, it has a strong growth roadmap in the future propelled by its superior performance, durability, and seamless installation. The global market has been witnessing excellent growth over the past decade. The market recorded a huge decline amid the pandemic, creating a lag of 2 years in the annual market size. The market is estimated to set back in the coming years.

    The growth of the spray polyurethane foam market is primarily driven by:

    • Over the eons, building insulation products have evolved enormously with constant developments in technologies.
    • Growing concerns over greenhouse gas emissions and stricter building energy codes are the fundamental growth drivers, necessitating the usage of insulation products.
    • Growth in the construction sector.
    • Stringent government regulations regarding energy efficiency
    • Strong Potential as a key component of the Durability Management Strategy for a building.

The closed-cell structure is expected to remain the larger and faster-growing segment of the market and occupied a major market share of more than 75% in 2020. There is a high significance of closed-cell structure SPF in exterior applications such as roofs and walls. On the contrary, the open-cell structure is mainly preferred in interior applications such as ceilings and floors.

    Application Trends

    The market is segmented as roofs, walls, floors, and others. Walls are estimated to remain the most dominant users of the market and it held a revenue share of more than 35% in 2020. Increased energy conservation needs, superior wall thermal performance, fire protection, termite control, and moisture control are key requirements fueling the segment’s market. Roofs also account for a sizeable opportunity in the market.

    End-Use Trends

    The market is segmented as residential, commercial, and industrial. Residential is estimated to be the dominant segment and it held a revenue share of more than 70% in 2020.

    Regional Analysis

    North America is expected to remain the largest market and it holds a revenue share of more than 45% in 2021. The region has a high focus on building insulation with a strong reliance on spray polyurethane foam due to regional government incentives and laws that promote energy-efficient infrastructure. North America and Europe have a higher penetration of spray polyurethane foam compared to the Asian and African markets. However, there exists a strong growth potential in the emerging Asian and African economies in the coming years.
