The latest forecast from consulting firm AlixPartners is that the chip shortage may cost the global auto industry $110 billion; it will reduce global auto production by 3.9 million this year. For the global chip shortage, AlixPartners analyzed that the main reason is that the chip production cycle is too long; at the same time, other uncontrollable risks from the industry chain have also affected the production rhythm. As the chip supply shortage continues to intensify, some automakers' factories have been forced to stop production for several days Even weeks, which companies such as Ford, GM, Stellantis, and others have been hit particularly hard. Even BMW, which was previously less affected, is beginning to show difficulties, with its Oxford plant in the UK shutting down for three days from April 30 and its Regensburg plant in Germany starting to reduce production shifts this week.
Chip supply shortages drive Cellular Concrete Foaming Agents.
Introduction to Cellular Concrete:
Cellular concrete or cellular lightweight concrete (clc) consists of cement, water, and preformed foam. Foam allows a relatively high proportion of stable air voids to mix into the mixture, and thus a cellular or porous solid can be produced after curing of the mixture. The air content in cellular concrete is between 10% and 70%. When cellular concrete hardens, it can reach an oven-dry density of 50 lb/ft3 (8 t/m3).
Production Process of Cellular Concrete:
The production process is divided into two steps. In the first stage, a foam generator is used to make microscopic stable foam: solution of the foaming agent is fed into the foam generator to generate a dense foam. In the second stage, the foam is mixed with a cement slurry. Normally, the dry density of such mixture is between 250 and 1600 kilograms per cubic meter. When the cellular lightweight concrete is used for insulation or filling purposes, the density is between 400 and 800 kilograms per cubic meter.
Applications of Cellular Concrete:
Flat top heat shield;
Fire prevention of wood flooring and steel structure works;
Fabrication of light beams, blocks and panels;
Fill old underground pipes, abandoned tunnels, sewers, cisterns, shelters and basements, repair ditches;
The properties of the cellular concrete, like the thermal resistance and sorptivity coefficient, are strongly influenced by the type of foaming agent used. Currently, there are two types of foaming agents available, protein based foaming agents and synthetic foaming agent.

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues to develop, there is growing concern about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the Cellular Concrete Foaming Agents may keep rising.
