Global Polyurethane Market By Application Overview

Polyurethane also termed as PUR or PU is a kind of polymer composed of organic units collectively by carbonate (urethane links). It is a part of polymer family but is different from all other forms of plastic polymers available. It is a versatile, modern and safe form of plastic polymer material available today and used on a large scale for a number of applications. They are highly used for producing consumer and industrial products which are environment-friendly. They are formed commonly by reaction of di-isocyanate or poly-isocyanate with a polyol. Both of these isocyanates are used to produce PU material with two or more functional groups in per molecule. They can be produced in rigid or flexible form. They are being commonly used to manufacture high-resilience foam seating, rigid foam insulation panels, foam seats & gaskets, elastomeric wheels and tires, high-performance adhesives and surface coatings along with sealants. Polyurethane Market accounted for US$ 69.68 billion in 2020 and is estimated to be US$ 88.76 billion by 2030 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 2.50%.
