Global Foam Glass Market: Key Trends

The global foam glass market is likely to gain traction due to the following factors:

High Insulation Value of Foam Glass Boosts its Demand in Various Industries

Amongst all of the foam glass applications, the building & industrial insulation segment is estimated to expand at a very rapid pace over the period of forecast. Both for commercial and non-commercial buildings foam glass serves as an outstanding material for insulation. Fire resistant nature of foam glass makes it ideal for usage in industries that are vulnerable to fire, such as petrochemical factories.

Foam glass also finds its application in civic constructions such as roadbeds, road embankments, and bridges as it is lightweight and moisture resistant. Thin-walled glass cells render foam glass easy to work with. Simple tools such as hand saw or saw blade can be used to cut it into any measurement.

And last but not the least, foam glass is an environment-friendly product. It can be recycled after generations of use as thermal insulation.  It can be recycled as thermally insulating granulate or filler in landscaping.
