Market Dynamics


Growth of End-use Industries in Developing Regions

PU foam is widely used in the furniture, building & construction, electronic, and automotive sectors. PU foam is mainly used in the automotive sector for cushioning. It is one of the most useful protection materials existing, making it appropriate for the electronic industry, particularly in refrigerators and freezers. The construction sector is a key user of PU foam in the form of rigid foam, coatings, and sealants & adhesives.

High Demand for PU Foams in Building Insulation for Energy Conservation

PU foam is a highly flexible material that helps in lowering the total structural cost and energy consumption and is used in numerous sectors, like construction, furniture, bedding, automotive, binding, and many other sectors. PU foam assists architects in better insulating the buildings, which minimizes the intake of gas, oil, and electricity. PUs is considered to be the most affordable, long-lasting, and safe means of decreasing carbon emanations that cause global warming. This is because these are easily accessible and cost-efficient alternatives that are durable, and are used for energy transformation, resulting in the decline in carbon emanations.


Severe Environmental Principles on the Use of Colored PU Foam

Colored PU foam is used in automotive and bedding & furniture applications. National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), ecological principles by the US EPA comprise some guidelines for new and prevailing plant locations that produce colored PU foam. This rule was put into action in 1998 for the management of the secretions of methylene chloride, 2,4-Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI), methyl chloroform, Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate (MDI), methanol, diethanolamine, propylene oxide, methyl ethyl ketone, and toluene.

Changing Prices of Raw Materials

PU foam is costly due to the changing raw material prices, which act as a key restraint for the market. The primary raw materials used for the manufacturing of PU foam consist of benzene, toluene, and phosgene. Variations in the demand and supply of these raw materials could have a foremost effect on the PU foam industry. As benzene and toluene are obtained from crude oil, higher crude oil prices lead to a rise in the prices of benzene and toluene and subsequently, MDI and TDI.
