Market Definition

Foam glass is a type of glass which is porous glass foam material. The advantages of foam glasses as a building material include its thermal and acoustic insulating, light weight and high strength properties. It is made by heating a mixture of granulated or crushed and a blowing agent such as limestone or carbon. Near the melting point of the glass, the blowing agent releases a gas which is producing a foaming effect in the glass. After cooling, the mixture becomes hard and convert into a rigid material with gas-filled closed-cell pores which is comprising a large portion of its volume.

Foam Glass Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Rise in demand due to unique properties

Foam glass is a light weight insulating material which can be used for an extensive range of applications due to its unique properties such as fire-resistant, corrosion resistance, lightweight, rigid, thermal insulation, chemical inertness, water- and steam-resistant, etc. Furthermore, these glasses have low transportation costs and are easy to handle, making them more economically feasible and expected to drive the growth of the foam glass market.

  • Huge demand for insulation

Foam glass is well suitable as a rigid insulation material in traffic areas, walls and roofs where other materials are compressed which generally results in an uneven surface thus causing the loss of insulating properties. Foam glasses also act as a barrier for temperature changes or preventing gases or liquids from passing through. Due to the insulating property of foam glass increase the demand of this glass in the market which are projected to upsurge the market growth rate.

  • Foam glass is environmental friendly

Foam glass is produced by using at least 60% of recycled glass. It is also free of ecologically damaging gas propellants and flame retardants. After using foam glass as thermal insulation purposes, it can be reused as filler in thermally insulating granulates or landscaping. It is environmentally sensible recycling through re-use.

Opportunities

Rising demand for highest form of insulation for industrial purposes are expected to increase the market growth rate. Some of the other factors rising awareness about the foam glasses, like  growing prevalence for protection against fire and longer life and high insulation value of foam glass which will create beneficial opportunities for the foam glass market growth rate in upcoming period. Also, the foam glasses are extensively used in the civic construction of bridges, roadbeds due to their lightweight properties. Furthermore, foam glass can be recycled, and during production process of foam glass doesn’t produce any toxic things. These factors will also generate opportunities for the foam glass market. 

Restraints/ Challenges

The high installation cost of the foam glass as a result, the commercial and residential organizations are using substitutes, which is anticipated to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, there are several challenges which has faced by the foam glass market just like any other market. One of the major challenges in the market is the lack of awareness regarding foam glass in underdeveloped economies. The major players are trying to overcome these challenges in the foam glass market and upsurge the market demand during the forecast period.These are the major factors which restrains the market's growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact on Foam Glass Market

The outbreak of Covid-19 was started in Wuhan city after that it spread across the globe. Now it has become a global pandemic. Due to this pandemic, governments have imposed global lockdown and social distancing guidelines. The lockdown affects the industries because production works are at a halt. Lack of production has affected the supply and demand and supply chain of the products. The construction industries are the main consumer of foam glasses, and due to this lockdown, the construction works are on a pause, decreasing the demand for foam glass. Further, the restriction in export and import has led to a gap between the demand and supply of foam glass. The major foam glass market players are trying their best to upsurge the market's demand in this epidemic. The market is anticipated to see high demand after the Post-Covid condition.
