Polyurethane Market – Increasing Use from Different End-use Applications is expected to Lead the Market Growth – Growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) 4.1% from 2022 to 2028

  • Polyurethane Market

As stated in our extensive report; the Global Polyurethane Market accounted forUSD 71.7 Billionin 2021.

Polyurethane products are used in a wide range of consumer goods that people use every day.The primary application of Polyurethane is in the building and construction industry because ofPolyurethane’sexcellent strength-to-weight ratio, durability, insulation properties, and versatility.

Polyurethane, also known as a polymeric material, refers to thermosetting polymers, which do not melt while exposed to heat. They are extensively utilized polymers formed by reacting polyols with diisocyanates in the occurrence of chemicals like catalysts and additives.

In addition to beingenvironment-friendly, they are also sustainable and have several applications in all industries like electronics, packaging, automotive, construction, footwear, and so on to be molded into unusual shapes and improve consumer and industrial products.

Key factors influencing Polyurethane Market Growth

The growth of the Global Polyurethane Market can be attributable to the following:-

  1. Global Polyurethane Market can be attributable to several benefits of Polyurethane and the increasing application of Polyurethane in numerous industries.
  2. The rising demand for building insulation in light of sustainability concerns will likely mount the need for Polyurethane in the coming years.
  3. Green buildings are increasingly entering the construction industry owing to increased investments in smart, energy-efficient commercial and residential buildings. Other factors drive market expansion, such as the augmented use of Polyurethane in refrigeration applications and stimulating the bedding segments.
  4. Applications offered by flexible foam like upholstered furniture, rigid foam for insulation in walls and roofs, TPU utilized in medical devices, and adhesives, sealants, coatings, and elastomers used on floors and automotive interiors are responsible for the increase in market growth rate.
  5. The increasing demand for environment-friendly Polyurethane likelow VOC, green, and sustainable Polyurethane and the growth of Polyurethane recycling and recovery will generate many growth prospects for the market.

On the other hand, the presence of substitutes for Polyurethane is likely to hinder Polyurethane demand growth during the forecast period.
