Polyurethane (Pu) Foam Market

Polyurethane is a thermoset plastic that is obtained by heating in a normally irreversible reaction. Polymeric foams are widely available due to their superior properties when compared to competing materials. Polyurethane foam (PUFs) is possibly the most important class of polymeric foams because its low thickness and thermal conductivity, combined with their exciting mechanical properties, make them notable thermal and sound insulators, as well as structural and luxury substances.

Global Polyurethane Foam market size is expected to grow from USD 38.60 Billion in 2021 to USD 41.10 Billion by 2029, anticipated to witness moderate growth during 2022-2029 with a CAGR of 7%.

Polyurethane foams are widely utilized in construction applications as insulators, adhesives, sealants, and binders. Reduced energy usage allows these materials to assist cut infrastructure expenses. As a result, the growing awareness of energy conservation will benefit the polyurethane foam market. Moreover, different product developments and the development of bio-based polyols that are used to manufacture polyurethane foam and emit very little carbon dioxide into the atmosphere are boosting demand for this type of foam.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

The Asia Pacific held the largest share with 45% in the polyurethane foam market in 2020. The emerging economies of China, South Korea, and India are key PU foam buyers, with a fast-increasing manufacturing sector and ample raw material availability. High demand for consumer electronic devices has emerged from innovation, price deflation, and rising family incomes, particularly in emerging Asian countries, contributing to the expansion of the Polyurethane foam market in this region.
