Dublin, March 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Markets for Foam Coating" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Foam coatings have numerous applications across industries including industrial manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, construction, industrial maintenance, and military.

Among the types of resins, polyurethane foam holds the largest market share, due to its widespread use in the construction sector. Increasing construction activity in developing countries creates a high growth opportunity for the global polyurethane foam market. Due to its durability, strength, and lightweight, it is used widely to insulate and protect the external fuel tank of the space shuttle. The 1 layer of foam helps to keep 395,000 gallons of liquid hydrogen at a very cool -423F.

Moving forward, polyurethane is used widely in the construction sector as an insulator. It is also used in the manufacture of mattresses, ice chests, cushions, coffee mugs, and commercial roof systems. Polyurethane products are manufactured using either flexible or rigid foam types.

Flexible foams are used primarily in the production of padding for domestic and commercial furniture. Rigid foams have high insulative properties and are used inside the plastic and metal walls of most freezers and refrigerators, and for thermal insulation panels used in construction. Wide application of polyurethane foam in various end-user industries fuels market growth over the forecast period.

Polyester resin holds the second largest market share in the global foam-coating market, followed by epoxy resin and alkyl resin. Polyester resin has various non-industrial and industrial applications. Due to its lightweight, weather resistance and strength, polyester resin is used to produce Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP), which is used in the manufacture of kitchen, restroom and restaurant products. Industrial applications of polyester resin include bulk-molding compounds, steel molding compounds, and resin casting. Designer, engineer, builder and architect value polyester resin for its light weight and strength will drive market demand during the forecast period.

Acrylic resins feature outstanding durability and transparency and are used in various applications ranging from consumer items to industrial products. Acrylic resins are an ingredient in latex paints and give those paints properties of greater water resistance, better stain protection, greater resistance to blistering and cracking, better adhesion, and resistance to alkali cleansers. Acrylic resins are used increasingly in medical devices, automotive parts, construction, sealants, adhesives, paints, and coatings. High demand for acrylic resins in the sectors described in this report creates a high market growth opportunity in the forecast period.

Epoxy resins are used widely in electronic materials, coatings, and adhesives due to their excellent mechanical properties, good heat resistance, high adhesion strength, and high electrical resistance. Epoxy resins are an integral part of the electronics industry and are used extensively in integrated circuits, over-molding transistors, hybrid circuits and PCBs (printed circuit boards). Epoxy is also known for its corrosion-resistance and environmental friendliness. These properties create high demand for epoxy resins in industrial sectors worldwide, and demand is expected to continue over the forecast period.
