Spray Foam Coalition Releases More Than Three Years of Historical Data on Spray Foam Sales

WASHINGTON, DC (March 1, 2012) – Observers and analysts of the spray polyurethane foam industry can now, for the first time, obtain historical, in-depth sales data by region and type of spray foam. The Spray Foam Coalition (SFC) of the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) is launching a quarterly statistical data program for high-pressure spray polyurethane foam (SPF) products to provide extensive business statistics about the sector. The data is available for purchase on CPI’s website.

The initial data that is now available for purchase covers Q1 2008 through Q3 2011 and includes the total amount of SPF sold during those periods, broken down by open-cell, closed-cell and roofing spray foam. In addition to foam type, these data specify historical sales information for nine U.S. regions, Canada and other exports. In the future, quarterly data will also be available through an annual subscription, beginning with the 2011 statistical reports. Click here for more information about the spray foam data. 

For more information about the spray foam statistics, or to learn more about the benefits of SFC membership, please contact Chris Braddock at Chris_Braddock@americanchemistry.com or (202) 249-6617.

Safety and security have always been primary concerns of ACC members, and they have intensified their efforts, working closely with government agencies to improve security and to defend against any threat to the nation’s critical infrastructure.



The Spray Foam Coalition (SFC) is organized as a self-funded project of the American Chemistry Council’s Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI). The core mission of the SFC is to champion the use of spray polyurethane foam in U.S. building and construction applications; to promote its economic, environmental and societal benefits; to provide a forum to help shape public policy on issues critical to the industry; and to support the safe manufacture, transport, and application of spray polyurethane foam.

SPFA believes that the path to a healthful, safe, high-quality and performing SPF installation travels through the hands of a knowledgeable, trained, experienced, and ideally PCP-certified professional contractor.
