Pune, India, Sept. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The versatility that polyurethane offers has been a key factor in promoting the use of the product and its consequent market growth. The global polyurethane market has been extensively studied by Market Research Future in its latest report on the subject which reveals consistent growth at a CAGR of 6.51% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2022. Extensive use of polyurethane due to the increasing volume of its applications are expected to lead the polyurethane market to an approximate value of USD 81,700.6 Mn by the end of the assessment period.

Polyurethane comes in a variety of forms which have a wide variety of both consumer and industry applications. Polyurethane is commonly used for insulation for buildings, in automotive manufacture, home furnishings, shoes, and in packaging plastics to name a few. The material offers properties such as moldability and versatility which enhance its use in applications. Several of the end-use industries that polyurethane is used in are flourishing, and as a result, polyurethane is experiencing increased demands in terms of volume. One such industry is the construction industry which is witnessing rapid expansion due to growing infrastructure activities, thus increased the demand for building thermal insulation. The automotive sector is also displaying increasing consumption of polyurethane foam for manufacturing of car interiors. Polyurethane production and development of biobased polyurethane are expected to trend and offer growth opportunities across end-user industries.

Polyurethane is a crude oil derivative, and as such, the fluctuations in price affect the market negatively. Moreover, polystyrene and fiberglass provide stiff competition to the global polyurethane market. However, globally growing environmental concern with regards to carbon emissions is predicted to open up opportunities due to the development of bio-based polyurethane.
