The isocyanate market is expected to grow with a healthy pace over the next five years to reach $38,729 million, by 2019. Asia-Pacific dominates the market due to high usage of isocyanate-based applications in its various end-user industries. Although the European economy has still not recovered from the Euro crisis, it will continue to be the second best market, followed by North America, and Middle east & Africa.

Consumer markets, including equipment and electronics, automotive and construction, in the emerging economies will present enormous opportunities for manufacturers and suppliers in the future especially the ones involved in infrastructure applications, so the boom in these sectors in emerging econmoies will increase the demand for the market and the products based on it. The factors that drive growth in the market include high demand from current & emerging applications, demand from emerging econmoies, and advancement in technology. Construction and automotive industry, a major end-user industry of isocyanate is on a boom globally This will increase the demand for isocyanate and isocyanate-based derivatives such as rigid foams, coatings, adhesives and sealants. Since, so any growth in these industries will directly impact the demand of these products.

The factors that are providing hindrance in the growth of this market are the high raw material cost and huge investments required in R&D and technology. As the major feedstock for isocyanate is derived from crude oil, the recent volatility in crude oil price has been reflected in the price of raw materials. Owing to the rising feedstock costs the major producers are increasing prices of isocyanate.

The market is analyzed in terms of revenue ($million) and consumption (KT) for all regions, and its respective major countries. The revenues from each region have been broken down by the major applications, namely, rigid foam, flexible foam, paints & coatings, adhesives & sealents, elastomers & binders, and other applications. Also, the types of isocyanate that are identified and included are TDI, MDI, aliphatic isocyanate, and other isocyanate.

The isocyanate market is witnessing high growth on account of rising demand from existing and new applications that would become significant in the future, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. Europe holds the second largest market share followed by North America and the Middle East & Africa. In terms of individual countries, the market is dominated by China due to the increased usage of isocyanate in various end-user industries.

The market is anticipated to increase at a healthy rate annually, to reach $38,729 million, by 2019. Isocyanates are primarily used to produce rigid foam, flexible foam, paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, elastomers & binders, and other applications. The rigid foam application is growing at a high rate, followed by the flexible foam application. The report covers the isocyanate market and its trends that concerns five regions, namely, Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific, The Middle East & Africa, and Latin America; and the major countries in each region such as China, Japan, India, North America, U.S., Canada, Germany, Italy, Belgium, U.K., Russia, and others.

The research and development cost involved in the isocyanate market in terms of man hours, material, and technology are significant. There is a lot of R&D required to develop new technologies that will help in reducing the cost of production. The growth in the market requires constant innovation and the introduction of new and improved products and technologies that meet the requirements of the customers. This has contributed largely to an enhanced focus on R&D by the players to bring new products as well as to decrease the cost of production by implementation of new technologies.

The raw materials used for the production of isocyanate include several products such as crude oil, benzene, propylene, toluene, and aniline. Different types of isocyanate require their own set of raw materials and ingredients, as MDI requires benzene and TDI requires toluene. Any change in the demand and supply of these raw materials canhave an impact on the industry. The volatility in crude oil price affects the raw material supply to the manufacturers, who in turn are forced to increase the prices of their isocyanate products to stem the losses. Isocyanate manufacturing process is highly toxic and hazardous, so the companies have to face many government regulations for isocyanate production.

Isocyanate Market Share, by Region, 2013

Isocyanate Market

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

Asia-Pacific is the largest isocyanate market, almost all the developing economies will rise at the global level with China leading the world's top ten economies by GDP measured in PPP terms. Consumer markets, including equipment and electronics, automotive and construction, in the emerging economies will present enormous opportunities for manufacturers and suppliers in the future especially the ones involved in infrastructure applications.
