Foam Glass (Open Cell and Closed Cell) Market - Global Forecast to 2024 - ResearchAndMarkets.com


The "Foam Glass Market by Type (open cell and Closed Cell), Process (Physical and Chemical), Application (Building & Industrial Insulation and Chemical Processing Systems), End-Use Industry - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The market size for foam glass was 1,424 kilotons in 2018 and is projected to reach 1,964 kilotons, by2024, at a CAGR of 5.5%, between 2018 and 2024.

Foam glass is a porous material manufactured using crushed glass/cullets. The foam possesses low thermal conductivity, high compression strength, high frost resistance, and better durability. Foam glass provides excellent insulation and thus finds use in the end-use industries, for instance, building &construction and industrial applications, such as chemical systems and LNG tanks.

In the building & construction industry, foam glass is used in residential and commercial construction, such as underground, walls, and roofs. It also has application in foundation slabs to prevent moisture from the ground from seeping into the walls.

In the industrial segment, foam glass is used for hot, cold, and cryogenic insulation due to its excellent insulation properties. It is also resistant to chemicals and corrosion and used in application areas, such as chemical systems for tank storages, refrigeration systems, marine, roof heat-preservation, parking lots, and insulation of the inner layer of chimneys.

Europe accounted for the largest share of the foam glass market, globally, in 2018. The foam glass market in APAC is projected to grow the fastest during the forecast period. The use of foam glass in end-use industries is expected to witness high growth in this region in the next five years.

The leading players in the market are Owens Corning (US), Zhejiang Dehe Insulation Technology Co., Ltd.(China), Zhejiang Zhenshen Insulation Technology Corp. (China), UUSIOAINES OY (Finland), Glapor (Germany), MISAPOR (Switzerland), Polydros S.A. (Spain), Refaglass (Czech Republic), Earthstone International (US), and Anhui Huichang New Material Co., Ltd. (China).
