Based on volume, the demand for toluene diisocyanate was 2,231.5 kilo tons and is expected to steadily rise over the coming years.
Flexible Foam to Take Over Toluene Diisocyanate Market
Applications of toluene diisocyanate include elastomers, adhesive & sealants, coatings, rigid foam, and flexible foam. Out of these flexible foam dominated the market in 2014 with a demand for 1,909.3 kilo tons in the same year. It has been projected that it will touch 2,815.0 kilo tons by the end of 2023 rising at a 4.4% CAGR from 2015 to 2023. This growth can be attributed to the ever rising demand for flexible foam owing to the growing use of mattress and bedding across the globe. Moreover, the demand for toluene diisocyanate from the automobiles industry has also increased with the rise in demand for automotive sets. Similarly, the rigid foam market is also expected to rise at a substantial rate in terms of both volume and value.
