Description



The demand for polyurethane is mainly triggered by growing demand from furniture & interiors and the construction industry. The global market for polyurethane is dominated by Asia Pacific. The polyurethane and polyols report by Transparency Market Research analyses, estimates and forecasts polyurethane and polyols demand on a global and regional level for the six year period from 2012 to 2018, in terms of revenue and volume. The study also provides information on restraints, drivers and opportunities along with the impact on the overall market for the forecast period. The report segments the market based on application, types and region and offers estimates and forecast of the polyurethane and polyols market for each segment. 

The study analyses the product value chain beginning with feed stock material up to end-use. In addition it also evaluates the market based on Porters five forces model which analyses the degree of competition in the market by considering other factors such as the bargaining power of buyers and suppliers, threat from substitute products and new entrants. The report includes a detailed competitive landscape of the polyurethane market including company market share analysis and the profile of key market participants. For the research report, we conducted in-depth interviews and discussions with a wide range of key industry participants and opinion leaders. Primary research represents the bulk of research efforts, supplemented by extensive secondary research. 

We reviewed the key players’ product literature, annual reports, press releases and relevant documents for competitive analysis and market understanding. Secondary research also includes a search of recent trade, technical writing, internet sources, and statistical data from government websites, trade associations and agencies. This has proven to be the most reliable, effective and successful approach for obtaining precise market data, capturing industry participants’ insights, and recognizing business opportunities.

In this study the polyols market is segmented based on their type, application and geography. The demand of each product type and application of polyols in terms of both revenue and consumption for each region is forecasted in this report for the period from 2011 to 2018. Market size and forecast for each major application is provided in the context of the global as well as regional market. All volumes i.e. Kilogram/Tons/Kilo Tons are expressed as Kilogram/Tons/Kilo Tons of dry polymers. All market revenue has been calculated on the basis of sales and consumption trends. All USD exchange rates are as of 2013. Inflation is not a part of pricing in this report. Prices vary in each region. Given that different end users use different types of products, pricing for each application varies according to region while estimating and forecasting market revenue on a global basis. Regional average price has been considered while breaking down this market by end application in each region.

The polyurethane market is segmented based on product types such as flexible foam, rigid foam, coatings, adhesives and sealants and elastomers; based on end-use as furniture and interiors, construction, automotive, electronics and appliances, footwear, packaging; and based on geography into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World. The demand of each product type and end use of polyurethane in terms of both revenue and consumption for each of these regions is forecasted in this report for the period 2011 to 2018.

Free Market Analysis


Polyurethanes (PU) are the polymers formed by reacting isocyanate such as toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) or diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI) and polyols. They are found in numerous forms ranging from flexible foam to elastomers and from rigid foams to solid compositions. They are commercially available as flexible foam, rigid foams, soft solid or low density elastomers and hard solid or flexible plastics. Based on physical and chemical properties, polyurethane foams can be used in different applications such as furniture, automobiles, houses, sculptures and decorations, building and construction, water vessels, boats, textiles, electronic components, adhesives and footwear. 

The revenue generated by the global polyurethane market was USD 40,581.6 million in 2011 which is expected to grow to USD 66,469.1 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2012 to 2018. Flexible foam and rigid foam accounted for the largest share of the polyurethane market in terms of both volume and revenue. Elastomers, coatings, adhesives and sealants are the other key types of polyurethanes used in the market. 

Furniture and interiors, construction, automotive, electronics and appliances, footwear and packaging are the major end users of polyurethanes. Furniture and interiors dominates the global polyurethane consumption and the positive growth in this industry across the globe is driving the global polyurethane market. Increased health and comfort expectations are driving the use of polyurethane in the furniture industry. However electronics and appliances are the fastest growing end user industry in the polyurethane market. 

The global polyurethane market is segmented based on geography. Asia Pacific represents the largest and the most important market for the polyurethanes industry. In the recent past, polyurethane market was driven by emerging economies such as China, India and Brazil. The PU market witnessed significant decline in demand due to the global economic downturn during 2008 and 2009. However, the polyurethane market has witnessed steady rise in demand since 2010 due to the uptrend in end user industries following the revival of the global economy. Moreover, ever rising health and comfort expectations are expected to trigger demand for polyurethane in the furniture industry. BASF SE, Bayer MaterialScience, Huntsman Corporation, Dow Chemicals, and Yantai Wanhua are some of the major manufacturers of polyurethane.
