The global polyurethane market size reached a value of over USD 59.28 billion in 2022. During the forecast period of between 2023 and 2028, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.70%.
Polyurethane, also known as polymeric material, is created from a multitude of starting elements and is categorised as a polymer rather than a specific substance. They are thermosetting polymers, which means that they do not melt in the presence of heat. Due to its easy accessibility, low cost, simplicity of use, and recyclability, it is employed in a variety of applications that improve the comfort and environmental friendliness of daily lives.
Based on product type, the market is divided into rigid foam, flexible foam, coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE), and thermoplastic polyurethane, among others. The market on the basis of end use can be segmented into furniture, construction, electronics, automotive and transportation, packaging, and footwear, among others. The regional markets for polyurethane can be divided into North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
The comprehensive EMR report provides an in-depth assessment of the market based on the Porter's five forces model along with giving a SWOT analysis. The report gives a detailed analysis of the following key players in the global polyurethane market, covering their competitive landscape and latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, investments, and expansion plans.
The demand for polyurethane in the construction sector is anticipated to expand significantly throughout the forecast period due to the superior thermal insulation, light weight, chemical inertness, and bacterial and pest resistance of polyurethane foam. The growth of the construction industry is also being fuelled by the expanding government initiatives like smart cities along with rising infrastructure spending, thus aiding the polyurethane market growth. Furthermore, the need for polyurethane is predicted to increase as green buildings become more and more popular around the world, fuelling the expansion of the construction industry.
Over the projection period, the automotive sector is expected to expand at a considerable CAGR. There are several environmentally friendly uses for polyurethane in the automotive sector. Utilising polyurethane offers advantages, including safety, comfort, lightness, and design flexibility. Products made of polyurethane assist automakers and designers in creating the seating they desire for their vehicles. Seating made of polyurethane is simple to assemble, remove, and recycle. Polyurethane supports improved performance requirements and a wide range of stiffness without sacrificing quality or adding weight.
The Asia Pacific region is predicted to lead the polyurethane market due to increasing use of polyurethane in major end-use sectors such as construction, automotive, furniture and interior, electronics and appliance, and packaging. A vast pool of inexpensive, skilled labour and easy access to land are the key characteristics of the Asia Pacific region. Over the course of the forecast period, the further growth of the manufacturing sectors in emerging economies, such as China and India, is anticipated to positively impact market growth for polyurethane.
Additionally, the Asia Pacific region is home to a number of quickly developing industries like construction, automotive, and electronics that present lucrative growth prospects for polyurethane manufacturers. The expansion of the regional market can also be linked to an increase in construction activity and the rapid urbanisation of emerging nations like, thereby aiding the polyurethane market in the Asia Pacific.
