Polyurethane is a thermosetting
polymer that is composed of organic units joined by carbamate links and does
not melt on heating. It is light in weight, resistant to corrosion, elastic in
nature and possesses considerable strength. In most of the cases, PU is an
alternative to paper, glass, and metals. High mechanical strength enables
polyurethane to provide insulation and replace metals for automobile
parts. The polyurethane market is anticipated to grow in the forecast
period owing to an upsurge in demand for lightweight and durable materials from
automotive, packaging, furniture, footwear, and other end-user industries.
Moreover, demands for high-performance interior components further contributes
to the polyurethane market growth. However, fluctuations in raw materials and
economic downturn in developing countries affect products sales which hinder
growth of the polyurethane market. On the other hand, adoption of bio-based
polyurethane is likely to provide growth opportunities to the key players
operating in the polyurethane market during the forecast period.

The use of polyurethane material is
suitable in several industries due to its ability to get molded in different
forms. Its broad hardness range is known to be its most unique characteristic.
Polyurethane further offers good abrasion resistance with toughness. Moreover,
its durability and toughness is higher than most plastics. Owing to these
properties, polyurethane is used in various industrial and commercial
applications as well as in a wide range of consumer goods used in day-to-day
life. It is used in various applications such as eraser and surfboards making;
flexible foam in upholstered furniture; thermoplastic polyurethane or TPU used
in medical devices and footwear; and coatings, adhesives, sealants, and
elastomers used on floors & automotive interiors.

Flexible polyurethane foam helps in
creating durable, comfortable, and supportive furniture. Therefore,
polyurethane—mainly in the form of flexible foam is widely utilized in home
furniture, bedding, and carpet underlay. Bedding and furniture are the largest
end-use markets for polyurethane. High demand for polyurethane in offices,
building or remodeling homes, and other buildings is supported by its
properties such as lightweight, durability, reliability, ease of installation,
affordable, recyclable, and versatile nature. The wider application of
polyurethane in buildings is insulation. Insulation is commonly required in
cavity walls, around pipes, roofs, floors, and boilers. The use of polyurethane
in construction is considered safe as it helps in diminishing carbon emissions
that lead to global warming. Polyurethanes can dramatically maintain
temperature to keep the environment warm in homes and offices in cold weather.
During summer, they further play a crucial role in keeping buildings cool,
reducing the need for air conditioning. Other than these, adhesives coatings
along with other products are utilized in huge volumes in this application.

Covestro AG; The Dow Chemical
Company; BASF SE; Mitsui Chemicals, Inc.; Huntsman Corporation; FXI; Lubrizol
Corporation; DIC Corporation; Recticel NV; and Tosoh Corporation are among the
well-established players operating in the global Polyurethane market.
