MarketsandMarkets projects that the polyurethane foam market size will grow from USD 46.05 Billion in 2015 to USD 74.24 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 8.4% between 2016 and 2021.

The polyurethane foam market is projected to witness high growth as a result of the growing end-use industries, such as building & construction, bedding & furniture, electronics, automotive, packaging, and footwear; as well as the rising demand from emerging countries, such as China. The segmentation for this report is based on type, end-use industry, and region.

In 2015, the building & construction segment accounted for the largest share of the polyurethane foam market, by end-use industry. However, the bedding & furniture segment is projected to account for the largest market share by 2021.

By type, the polyurethane foam market is segmented into rigid foam, flexible foam, and spray foam. In general, both flexible and rigid foams come with different chemical compositions as per the requirement of an application. Flexible foams are extensively used in various applications in the automotive, electronics, and construction industries. They are also widely used in bedding & upholstery, footwear midsoles, print rollers, fabric coatings, and synthetic fibers. These foams help automobile manufacturers in addressing issues related to weight reduction, vibration absorption, fuel efficiency, and durability.

Rigid foams are essentially low-to-high density foams with high stiffness levels. These foams are primarily used as insulating foams and structural foams in commercial and residential construction for board and laminate insulation, and as foam roofing. They are also used in various other applications. Spray foams, on the other hand, are basically low-to-medium density foams. They are primarily used for insulation, roofing, and flotation. Spray foam is projected to be the fastest-growing type segment due to its increasing applications across industries.

As far as region goes, the Middle East is projected to be the fastest growing in the global polyurethane foam market.

Polyurethane Foam Market

Asia-Pacific is projected to have the largest market share and dominate the global polyurethane foam market from 2016 to 2021. Growth of the polyurethane foam market in this region is driven by the growing building & construction, bedding & furniture, electronics, automotive, footwear, and packaging industries. Increasing population and economic development are the other driving factors.

On the other hand, the Middle East region is projected to witness the highest growth between 2016 and 2021. This is because of the region’s very large building & construction industry, which demand polyurethane foams. Some of the world’s largest infrastructure facilities have also been developed in this region over the years, with more to come up in the coming years. These facilities require bedding and furniture, which are end users of polyurethane foams. Thus, due to these reasons, the Middle East is projected to be the fastest growing region.

Factors such as rising raw material cost and high pricing pressure in the polyurethane foam industry are some of the serious restraints for the growth of the market. The global polyurethane foam market is dominated by players such as BASF SE (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Bayer AG (Germany), Sekisui Chemical Co. Ltd. (Japan), Nitto Denko Corporation (Japan), Compagnie de Saint-Gobain S.A. (France), Huntsman Corporation (U.S.), Wanhua Chemical Group Co., Ltd. (China), Trelleborg AB (Sweden), Tosoh Corporation (Japan), Chemtura Corporation (U.S.), INOAC Corporation (Japan), and Recticel NV/SA (Belgium), among others. These players adopted various strategies, such as expansions, acquisitions, new product launches, mergers & acquisitions, contracts & agreements, collaborations, and joint ventures to maintain their competitive position in the polyurethane foam market.
