The global polyurethane foam market size is expected to reach USD 110.4 billion by 2028 according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report Polyurethane Foam Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Product; By End-Use (Automotive, Packaging, Electrical & Electronics, Furniture & Furnishing, Building & Construction, Footwear, Others); By Density Composition; By Regions; Segment Forecast, 2021 - 2028” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.
The adoption of the foam is expected to increase during the forecast period owing to wide applications in industries such as building and construction, automotive, packaging, and furniture among others. Increasing environmental concerns associated with energy conservation coupled with the introduction of stringent regulations regarding carbon emissions would further support the market growth. Increasing demand for modernized and high-performing vehicles along with increasing investment in the construction industry, especially in emerging economies of Asia-Pacific, supplement the market growth.
The different types of polyurethane foam in the market include rigid, flexible, spray, and others. Rigid ones are used for the manufacturing of thermal insulating products owing to their high strength, lightweight, low density, and moisture resistance. The rising environmental concerns have increased the adoption of polyurethane foam in the construction sector. Use of rigid polyurethane foam results in enhanced energy efficiency, reduced project weight, and cost-efficiency.
The polyurethane foam of different density compositions such as high-density, medium-density, and low-density are available in the market. Low-density product is widely used in thermal insulation applications. Buildings are insulated with low-density products for heat and noise control. It also assists in reducing air leakage, increasing strength and durability, and improving the building’s resistance to wind uplift.
Polyurethane foam is used in diverse industries such as automotive, packaging, electrical and electronics, furniture and furnishing, building and construction, footwear, and others. The building and construction segment accounted for the highest share in 2020. However, the automotive segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.
