Polyurethane Market : Production, Revenue, Consumption, Export & Import Forecast 2022

Global Polyurethane Market Information- by Product (Rigid Foam, Flexible Foam, Coatings, Adhesives & Sealants, Elastomers, Others), by End User Industry (Construction, Furniture, Automotive, Electronics appliances, Footwear, Packaging, Others) and by Region - Forecast till 2022


Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/05/2018 -- Worldwide Overview

The Global Polyurethane Market is projected to achieve nearly USD 82 million by 2022. It should grow at about 6.5 percent CAGR from 2016 to 2022 (forecast period). Polyurethane is a flexible plastic polymer available in different forms. These include flexible foams, rigid foams, hard elastomers, etc. Their multiple applications lead to the adoption of polyurethane in a wide range of consumer sectors. Some of these sectors are refrigerators, packaging plastics, buildings, shoes, residential furniture, etc.

Due to the characteristics of polyurethane, it can be given any shape to improve its usage. Thus, its adoption ensures the maintenance of user-satisfaction. The product also finds wide usage across infrastructural and construction operations. Hence, its stability and other positive features propel market expansion. Moreover, the demand for automotive lightweight and superior cushion foams & components drives industry growth. Seat frames made from polyurethane are approximately 40 percent lighter than metal stamped frames.

Advanced matrix resins used across compounds, like certain glass fiber reinforced leaf springs constitute more than 65 percent of the total weight savings of components. Insulative and efficient foams are adopted in green constructions and other infrastructures. This step has reduced energy costs across emerging European and North American regions. Green construction initiatives, such as policies & certifications help meet construction standards. The worldwide polyurethane market is oligopolistic and concentrated, with its best manufacturers generating over 55 percent of the total sales.

Product costs and other expansion plans are heavily reliant on the best companies. Key multinationals collaborate with smaller firms to grow their businesses in developing regions. On the contrary, eco-apprehensions & feedstock instabilities are projected to restrict the growth of manufacturers. TDI and MDI, the most commonly used isocyanates for PU generation, have observed cost-fluctuations. Carbon emissions resulting from the release of dangerous gases have drawn the curiosity of many governmental organizations. Firms are hence, coerced into improvising their processes and reducing 'greenhouse gas' emissions.

Industry Segments

The Global Polyurethane Industry is split on the basis of kinds, end-users, and geographies. Kinds comprise rigid foams, hard elastomers, coatings, and flexible foams. Rigid foams captured around 32 percent shares in 2015. The end-users include construction, infrastructure, green buildings, and others. Construction held the largest shares in 2015, recording about 8 percent CAGR in the forecast period. Geographical regions of the market are Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, and rest of the world. Asia Pacific is estimated at USD 28, 112 million by the end of 2022.

Detailed Regional Findings

Asia Pacific produces maximum incomes and is followed by Europe and North America. China is the biggest customer and manufacturer of polyurethane. This is credited to its flexible regulatory policies, proficient laborers, and easily available feedstock. India is a growing market owing to its supportive policies coupled with 'Make in India' crusades to promote manufacturing operations. Key participants across construction and automotive sectors are using light-weight substances and affordable technologies for manufacturing processes.
