Polyurethane Market - Overview
Polyurethanes are widely utilized polymers. They are formed through the reaction between diisocyanates and polyols in the presence of other chemicals. Polyurethanes are used across the globe in almost all industries including furniture, construction, electronics, automotive, footwear, and packaging. Coatings, adhesives & sealants, and elastomers are key product segments of the global polyurethane market.
Based on raw material type, the global polyurethane market has been segmented into toluene diisocyanate (TDI), methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), and others (including polyols and HDI). MDI is widely used to produce polyurethane. It is extensively employed in various applications, due to its excellent insulation property. In terms of product type, the global polyurethane market has been divided into coatings, adhesives & sealants, flexible foams, rigid foams, elastomers, and others (including monomers and resins). Flexible foams is expected to be the major product type segment of the global polyurethane market during the forecast period. It is also estimated to be a rapidly expanding segment during the forecast period, owing to high consumption of polyurethane as a raw material in the furniture industry.
In terms of end-user, the global polyurethane market has been segregated into bedding & furniture, building & construction, appliances & white goods, automotive & transportation, footwear, and others (including packaging and sports accessories). The bedding & furniture segment accounted for a major share of the global market in 2017. It is estimated to be a rapidly growing segment during the forecast period, owing to high consumption of polyurethane as a raw material to manufacture cushions and furniture.
Based on region, the global polyurethane market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Asia Pacific is projected to lead the global market in the next few years. The market in the region is likely to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period.
