The Isocyanates Market
is observed to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period 2022-2027 and would reach an estimated revenue of US$39.6 billion by 2027. Isocyanates, having high anti-corrosive nature, thermal resistance and mechanical strength, are considered a major ingredient in polyurethane polymer production. Such polymer is further used in various applications such as paints & coatings, elastomers and adhesives & sealants. Due to their high thermal and electrical insulation, isocyanates are majorly used as foams, paints and coatings on automotive bodies. Rapid urbanization and improvement in living standards have increased the demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, increasing automotive production. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, America's automotive production in 2021 saw a 3% increase as compared to the production in 2020. Owing to such rapidly growing automotive production, the demand and usage of isocyanates for polymer foams, paints & coatings are also expected to increase. This is one of the major factors driving the market growth for Isocyanates.
