Global Foam Concrete Market – Drivers, Opportunities, Trends & Forecasts up to 2022
Foam concrete is a version of lightweight concrete produced by a slurry of cement, fly ash, water, and sand (optional) with minimum 20% of the foaming agent. It is classified under the aerated concrete and is also known as cellular lightweight concrete. Foam concrete has a simple production method and is relatively inexpensive when compared to cement grouts and autoclaved aerated concrete blocks.
Foam concrete is a superior choice as a building material, where additional features such as thermal and acoustic insulation, lighter loading, eco-friendly, and protection against environmental issues are desired. Owing to its superior insulation properties and affordable pricing, companies in the building and construction industry are more willing to replace conventional concrete with cellular concrete is increasing its demand, which inturn is swelling the foam concrete market.
Globally, the demand for foam concrete is growing consistently, especially in Europe and Asia Pacific markets and supported by increasing infrastructure investment & growing urbanization in these regions. Analyzing from source point, foam concrete based on protein/organic foaming agent, which contains animal byproducts faces a problem with shelf-life and odor, normally suitable for densities from 400 to 1600 kgm-3. Modern technologies that are based on synthetic-enzyme based foaming agents have improved the stability of the foam concrete. The synthetic enzyme based foaming agents are a new and innovative foaming agent technology developed recently.
In recent years, foamed concrete has been used extensively in highways, commercial buildings, disaster rehabilitation buildings, schools, apartments, and housing developments in many countries from developed countries of Germany and the US to developing countries of Brazil, India, and Malaysia among many others.
