Global demand of Polyurethane is expected to rise to 24.2 million tons in 2022-research by Market Research Future

Synopsis of Polyurethane Market

The global Polyurethane market is expected to grow at rapid pace owing to high demand of lightweight and durable materials in end user industries such as construction, automotive, electronics appliances, furniture, footwear, packaging. Rising demand of interior components, cushion foams in automotive parts to foster energy saving will fuel the demand for polyurethane market growth.

The global demand of polyurethane is expected to rise to 24.2 million tons in 2022 with CAGR of 5.8% during 2016-2022.

Increase in government spending in infrastructure has led overall development of construction industry. Thus, increasing demand of effective foams in green building has led to energy saving in developed regions like North America and Europe. However, fluctuation in crude oil prices may affect the polyurethane market price trend. Further, volatile in MDI and TDI price range which is extensively used in polyurethane production can challenge major manufacturer. Rising environmental concerns and lowering carbon emission and greenhouse gases to tackle the pollution across the globe has highlighted attention of regulatory bodies to switch to bio-based polyurethane in end user industries.
