The global polyurethane market is projected to reach USD 56.76 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2016 to 2021. The use of PU in the footwear industry in the last few years has made it a worthy replacement to materials such as, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) because of ease of processing and designing.

Polyurethanes are synthetic resins composed of organic units connected by urethane linkage. They are mainly prepared by reacting diisocyanates, methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), and/or toluene diisocyanate (TDI) with a range of polyols (polyester and/or polyether polyols). Polyurethane products are versatile, modern, and safe. The key polyurethane products include coatings, adhesives & sealants, foams, and elastomers. These products have wide range of applications in building & construction, automotive & transportation, bedding & furniture, footwear, and appliances & white goods. They offer many solutions for energy conservation and ecodesign.

The polyurethane market has been segmented, on the basis of product type, into flexible foam, rigid foam, coatings, adhesives & sealants, elastomers and others. The market for rigid foam is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. To maintain uniform temperature and lower noise levels in residential as well as commercial properties, builders are adopting rigid polyurethane foam. These foams are effective insulation materials that can be used in roof and wall insulation, insulated windows, doors, and air barrier sealants to save energy.

The polyurethane market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. APAC is the fastest-growing market for polyurethane. Owing to increasing demand on the domestic front, increasing income levels, and cheaper raw materials, Asia Pacific has emerged as the leading consumer as well as producer of polyurethane materials. South America, especially Brazil and Argentina, have also emerged as key markets for polyurethane. Their proximity to the U.S. is expected to enable them emerge as key targets for production facilities.

Polyurethane Market

The growing urbanization and improvements in living standards of populations, and increase in the usage of polyurethane in the construction industry and its ability to adhere strongly, its exceptional mechanical & insulating properties, and chemical & heat resistance are driving the market for polyurethane.

Bedding & Furniture

Bedding & furniture is the largest end user market for polyurethane. Polyurethane, in the form of flexible foam, is one of the most popular materials used in home furnishings such as furniture, bedding, and carpet underlay. As a cushioning material for upholstered furniture, flexible polyurethane foam makes furniture more durable, comfortable, and supportive. The flexible polyurethane foam is recyclable; it is recycled by various methods to remove waste stream and recover the value inherent in the material.

Polyurethane plays a key role in developing sustainable buildings. Polyurethane finds high demand in building or remodeling homes, offices, and other buildings. The high demand is backed by its lightweight, ease of installation, durability, reliability, and versatile nature.

Building & Construction

The most important application of polyurethane in buildings is insulation. The rigid foam has unique insulating properties that make it ideal for walls and roofs for new homes, as well as for remodeling of existing homes. Insulation is usually required in cavity walls, roofs, floors, around pipes, and boilers. Polyurethane is an affordable, durable, and safe method of reducing carbon emissions that lead to global warming. Polyurethanes can dramatically reduce heat loss in homes and offices in cold weather. During the summer, they play an important role in keeping buildings cool, reducing the need for air conditioning. Other than these adhesives coatings and other products are also used in huge volumes in this application

Automotive & Transportation

Polyurethane has a wide range of applications in the automotive & transportation industry. The benefits of using polyurethane are comfort, safety, lightweight, and longevity coupled with design freedom. Polyurethane foam products aid automobile designers and manufacturers to design seating that can be easily assembled, disassembled, and recycled. They have the highest performance specifications over a wide range of firmness without added weight.

The automotive industry is the largest user of RIM polyurethane parts. RIM maximizes the shock absorption of a car’s fender, bumper, and spoiler, without adding weight or bulk. The lightweight of RIM polyurethane give cars better gas mileage and provide engineers the freedom to create innovative designs.

Critical questions the report answers:

  • Where will all these developments take the industry in the mid to long term?
  • What are the upcoming industry applications for polyurethane?

The current focus of bio-based polyurethane is to develop natural oil polyols (NOPs) that are produced from renewable raw materials such as soybean and castor oil, and can be used to decrease the petrochemical content of polyurethane formulations. According to estimates by the Centre for the Polyurethane Industry (CPI) within the American Chemistry Council, make use of NOPs against conventional polyols, which reduces total energy consumption by 23%. However, NOPs have low hydroxyl functionalities and relatively high equivalent weight, which restrict their use to solid urethanes and flexible foams, making them less suitable for rigid insulating foams.

Key players in the market include Covestro AG (Germany), BASF SE (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Wanhua Chemical Group Co. Ltd. (China), Huntsman Corporation (U.S.). These companies are adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies, such as expansions, mergers & acquisitions, and new product launches to enhance their current market shares.
