Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is made by reacting isocyanates, for example, MDI (Methylene diphenyldiisocyanate) and polyols in the presence of catalysts, flame retardants and blowing agents. Polyols react with MDI to make foam. MDI (Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate), TDI (Toluene diisocyanate), polyols and amines are the key raw materials of SPF. The mixing and reacting materials react very quickly, expanding on contact to create foam that insulates, air seals and provides a moisture barrier. SPF insulation is known to resist heat transfer extremely well, and it offers a highly effective solution in reducing unwanted air infiltration through cracks, seams, and joints. There are different types of SPF. There are different types of SPF such as the open cell, closed cell, etc. SPF is mainly used for insulation and sealing walls and roofing.
According to the report, the global spray polyurethane foam market was valued at USD 1.30 billion in 2014 and is anticipated to reach USD 1.90 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 7% between 2014 and 2020.

SPFs are used to cover cracks and holes in walls and ceiling and insulate structures, thus reducing energy loss. The foams also help avoid any soil or air pollutant from entering the structure, there by maintaining healthy environment in the structure. Therefore, SPFs have higher acceptance over traditional glass fibers due to several benefits including higher efficiency and ease of installation. This is expected to boost the demand for SPF. However, volatile raw material prices are expected to be the major restraint for global spray polyurethane foam market.
Spray polyurethane market can be segmented on the basis of product types such as the open cell, closed cell, etc. Open cell spray polyurethane foam dominated the product segment and accounted for over 45% share of the total volume consumed in 2014. Open cell spray polyurethane foam is also expected to be the fastest growing product segment during the forecast period.
