Global Foam Glass Market Insights & Projections (2019-2024): New Application Areas Provide Growth Opportunities

Dublin, Aug. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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's offering.

The Foam Glass Market is Estimated at 1,503 Kilotons in 2019 and is Projected to Reach 1,964 Kilotons by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.5% Between 2019 and 2024.

Superior fire-proof and insulation properties of foam glass are expected to drive the global foam glass market during the forecast period

Foam glass exhibits good fire resistance, water resistance, corrosion resistance, and is lightweight and biocompatible. These properties make it a preferred material in end-use industries such as industrial, residential and commercial construction, consumer abrasive, pharmaceutical, packaging, and shipbuilding. Increasing demand from these end-use industries is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Industrial end-use is expected to register the highest CAGR in the global foam glass market during the forecast period

The industrial end-use segment is projected to witness the highest growth in the foam glass market. The industrial use of foam glass includes as a material for fire-proofing petrochemical tanks, insulating hot and cold tanks, insulating cryogenic tanks, and piping insulation of chemical processing systems. It is fire-resistant, water-resistant, and possesses high load-bearing capability. Also, it is corrosion-resistant. It makes it suitable for insulating cryogenic systems of LNG and LPG pipelines. The market for foam glass in the industrial segment is in the nascent stage and is expected to grow in the coming years.

The building & industrial insulation application is expected to drive the foam glass market

Among the foam glass applications, building & industrial insulation is projected to grow at the fastest during the forecast period. Foam glass serves as an excellent insulating material for both commercial and non-commercial buildings. It provides additional safety from fire; this makes it suitable for use in industries, especially in petrochemical factories that are susceptible to fire.

Europe is projected to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period

Europe accounted for the largest share in the foam glass market, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. In Europe, Germany, Norway, and Sweden are estimated to be the key players in the region. Growing demand for environment-friendly insulating materials in various end-use industries are driving the market in the region. Extensive primary interviews were conducted to determine and verify the market size for several segments and sub-segments and information gathered through secondary research.
