The global polyurethane foam market was valued at USD 54.21 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 86.21 billion in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period.

Polyurethane foam market is growing due to various factors such as the growing application of polyurethane foam in building insulation for the conservation of energy. According to the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America, the construction industry is a major contributor to the US economy. The industry has more than 680,000 employers with over 7 million employees and creates nearly $1.3 trillion worth of structures each year in the US. Moreover, rapid urbanization across emerging countries is further supporting to drive the growth of the construction sector. SPF is one of the fastest-growing building insulation products across the countries as it can support to reduce energy consumption in existing and new buildings.

3. Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India and Rest of Asia Pacific)
4. Latin America (Brazil, Mexico and Rest of Latin America)
5. Middle East & Africa (GCC and Rest of Middle East & Africa)
 

 

As per the US Department of Energy, in 2018, the residential and commercial buildings accounted for nearly 40% of the total US energy consumption, which occurs primarily due to air filtration. SPF acts as both, an air-sealing product and insulation material. The utility cost savings of up to 50% can be achieved by using SPF as an insulation material in buildings. As the government is investing in energy-efficient buildings, the demand for polyurethane foam is anticipated to grow significantly in the construction industry. For instance, in January 2018, the Government of Canada declared a $182-million investment for increasing energy efficiency and address climate change by improving the designing, renovation, and construction of homes and buildings. As a result, polyurethane foam enhances the entire building structure to offer durability, energy efficiency, sustainability, and improved occupant comfort.

Polyurethane Foam Market

The flexible foams segment expected to have the largest market share in the polyurethane foam market

Based on type, the global polyurethane foam market has been segmented into flexible foams, rigid foams, and spray foams. The flexible foams segment is projected to have the largest market share of 45% in the global market owing to rising application of polyurethane foam in automotive construction, and electronics industries. These are mostly in the form of flexible foam for use in home furnishings, such as bedding and matrices and furniture. As a cushioning material for upholstered furniture, flexible polyurethane foam enables to make furniture more comfortable, supportive and durable

Based on end-user, the automotive segment is the fastest growing during the forecast period

Based on end-user, the market has been segmented into building & construction, bedding & furniture, electronics, automotive, footwear, packaging, and others application. The automotive segment is projected to have fastest growth of around 9.1% during the forecast period. The market growth mainly is driven by the increasing application of polyurethane foam in interiors and other components. Polyurethane foam application in electric vehicles enables to lower the environmental impact of cars and minimizes vehicle weight. This improves the efficiency of vehicles and lowers level of emission. As a result, companies are introducing polyurethane materials for electric vehicles

Asia-Pacific to dominate the polyurethane foam market throughout the forecast period

Asia-Pacific accounted for nearly 32% share of the global polyurethane foam market in 2018 and is expected to dominate the market throughout the forecast period followed by North America and Europe. Factors that are contributing significantly in the market growth owing to rapid growth in the construction industry coupled with the rising focus on green building initiatives in the region. For instance, in China, as the national Five Year Plan is cascaded to provincial and municipal jurisdictions, nearly 20 cities have set highly ambitious targets. A few of them includes Changde, Zhenjiang, Zibo, Wuxi, and Suzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, and Chongqing. These cities will emphasize on all new commercial buildings to be green buildings (according to the World Economic Forum). This, in turn, will likely to offer significant opportunity for market growth.
