Pune, India, Feb. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Polyurethane Foam Market Forecast:
Market Research Future (MRFR) expects the Polyurethane Foam Market to gain a striking valuation of USD 76.06 Billion by 2027 and expand at a rate of 7.2% from 2019 to 2027 (evaluation period).
Future Market Growth Factors:
The key reasons for the robust expansion rate of the polyurethane foam market can be the escalating demand in prominent end-use industries like electronics, bedding & furniture, building & construction and automotive. These industries are growing at a stellar pace, especially in developing countries like Thailand, India, and others, which has boosted the use of polyurethane foams. PU foam’s unique and appealing physical characteristics help raise the demand and in turn, works in favor of the global industry to a large extent.
Polyols are key components used for manufacturing polyurethane foams. Soaring concerns with regard to consumption of fossil fuels as well as the negative effects of plastics have encouraged the polyurethane foam market to strive for a more sustainable approach. Bio-based materials, like soy-based polyols present an array of advantages compared to traditional polyols, when it comes to sustainability as well as cost-effectiveness. This could be a significant opportunity for the polyurethane manufacturers by bringing down their reliance on raw materials that are petroleum-based for producing polyurethane foams.

Different types of polyurethane foam that witness significant demand in the market are flexible foam, spray foam and rigid foam. The biggest share in the global market, however, is owned by lightweight foam, which could remain at the top in the forthcoming years as well. It notes extensive applications in end-use sectors like bedding and furniture, building and construction and automobile, on account of its appealing characteristics including impressive absorption property and lower volume to weight ratio.
Depending on the mode of application, the polyurethane foam industry can be categorized into building & construction, bedding & furniture, automobile, electronics, packaging, clothing, and more. Owing to the significant deployment of flexible PU foams in structural insulation, roofing, wall cavities and flooring, the building and construction segment could secure the leading spot in the years to come. Appealing benefits including significant resistance to water vapor, excellent structural strength, lower density, and high longevity have raised the demand for polyurethane foam in the building and construction sector. Substantial government funding in infrastructure development has pushed the growth of the construction industry across various emerging countries, which bolstered polyurethane consumption rate. Increasing consumer spending on furniture and interiors also elevate the consumption rate of the product.
