Inflation is not a part of pricing in this report. Prices of aerosol and spray polyurethane foams vary in each region; hence, a similar volume to revenue ratio does not follow for each individual region. The same price for each application has been taken into account while estimating and forecasting market revenue on the global basis. Regional average price has been considered while breaking down this market by application segment in each region. We use models and estimates in order to produce comprehensive data sets when there is no hard data available. We have used the bottom up approach to arrive at the global market considering individual application segments and integrating them to arrive at the global market. The applications have been further bifurcated using top down approach to derive the regional product market consumption.
