Polyurethane consist of organic units including di-isocyanates, tri- isocyanates and polyols. The foam and non-foam polyurethane further modified by using surfactants. They are also known as thermosetting polymers which do not melts on heating. Growing importance of energy conservation due to volatile in prices of crude oil is anticipated to drive the Polyurethane Market growth. Increasing demand of high performance and lightweight interior components, cushion foams in automotive parts to foster energy saving will fuel the demand for Polyurethane Market growth.
Based on types, Polyurethane is segmented into rigid foam, flexible foam, coatings, adhesives & sealants, elastomers, others. Growing importance of energy conservation along with reduction of carbon emission is expected to propel the product demand. Rigid foam is widely used in insulations in construction industry. The need to increase building energy efficiency are the key properties helping the rigid foam market to grow in coming years. Flexible foam is leading product segment owing to structural stability in construction and electronic appliances. Elastomers polymers not only offer benefits of plastics & rubber but also provide self-healing properties which also expected to contribute the market growth. The material possesses following properties such as high flexibility and strong impact & shock resistance for high performance applications in automotive industry. Development of eco-friendly coatings and bio-based polyurethane for green buildings is anticipated to drive the polyurethane market in developed regions.
Based on end user industry, Polyurethane is segmented into construction, furniture, automotive, electronics appliances, footwear, packaging, others.
