Global Polyurethanes Market Analysis
Polyurethane is a polymer that consists of organic units combined with carbamate links. Most of the polyurethanes do not melt when heated, these polyurethanes are called thermosetting polymers and the other polyurethanes are known as thermoplastic polyurethanes. Polyurethanes have a sea of applications, some of the end-user industries that employ polyurethanes are mentioned below.
Polyurethane is a high-performance material that is strong yet is lightweight.
They have multiple applications in the home such as flooring, furniture, and
insulation. Both rigid and soft polyurethanes are used in home appliances. As
per a report published from the Institution of Civil Engineers , the
global construction market value is anticipated to touch $8 trillion by the
year 2030. With rampant development in the construction industry, the needs of
consumer appliances will also increase; subsequently incrementing demands in
the global polyurethanes market.
Automotive industry employs polyurethanes for making lightweight automotive
parts. In addition to the car body, doors, spoilers, and windows; car’s seats
are made comfortable using polyurethanes cushion foams. Polyurethanes also
ensures enhanced performance in automobiles by reducing weight and increasing
fuel economy, insulation, sound absorption, and comfort. According to the International
Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) ,
more than 95 million vehicles were produced in the year 2018 including
commercial and passenger cars. With such an influx of demands in the automotive
industry, the opportunities in the global polyurethanes market are projected to
Polyurethanes Market Trends
Bio-Based Foam: Bio-based foam is a new vertical of development in by the chemical company BASF SE. They use castor oil as a renewable raw material to develop complex foam apparatuses that are both lightweight, compact, and provides excellent adhesion to a wide range of surfaces.
Conserving and Production of energy have been the global goal for the century.
The limited supply of natural energy sources encouraged the development of
alternate energy sources such as solar, hydro, and wind energy. The blades used
in a wind turbine are being manufactured using polyurethanes as the products
withholds strong, flexible, durable, and lightweight properties.
is a type of spray that turns into a foam on contact with the outside
environment. This product is being considered as the most advanced insulation
techniques introduced for commercial and residential complexes. The elastospray
is gaining popularity owing to its outstanding insulation properties, high
compressive strength, water-resistant, and most importantly environment
compatibility with null Ozone depletion potential.
