DUBLIN, October 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Polyurethane Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the global polyurethane market to grow at a CAGR of 7.41% during the period 2016-2020.
The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
Growing demand from electronics industry will be a key trend for market growth. Polyurethane is used as an enclosing material to secure minute components in electronic devices. The material also provides thermal shock resistance and vibration resistance along with resistance to harsh chemicals and water. It offers flexibility in the encapsulating technique as it can be sprayed or injected to the desired set of components. Moreover, polyurethane has a comparatively quick dry time than commonly used resins.
According to the report, increased use of bio-based polyurethane in construction applications will be a key driver for market growth. Growth in global population and rapid urbanization have increased the demand for housing, infrastructure, furniture, and other consumer products. Rigid polyurethane foam is widely used for thermal insulation of walls for buildings, vessels for refrigerated cargo, light-weight products used in construction and automotive applications, pipelines, and cryogenic wind tunnels. These foams are preferred over conventional materials such as fiberglass and mineral wool owing to the relatively higher insulation offered by them. Further, they increase the living space and provide excellent energy efficiency.
Further, the report states that the manufacturing process requires other key raw materials such as blowing agents, surfactants, polyol, and other catalysts. The prices of these materials are also increasing. In addition, the technologies required for manufacturing bio-based thermoplastic polyurethane are costly and sophisticated, thereby posing a challenge to market growth.
