Polyurethane (PU) is the most widely used polymer in the world. Key raw
materials used in manufacture of polyurethane are diisocyanates, polyols and
other additives. Polyols comprise the largest volume of polyurethanes. The
rebound in furniture, interiors and construction industry in North America and
Europe, as well as rapid economic growth in Asia Pacific is expected to remain
the major driving force for the polyurethane market. Volatile raw material
prices coupled with increasing regulatory pressure for sustainable solutions
is expected to be a key challenge for market participants. Industrial polyols
are mainly used in production of polyurethane; hence the drivers and
restraints impacting the polyurethane market are also expected to affect the
polyols market. Polyether polyols dominated the overall market, accounting for
over 70% of the total demand in 2011.

Flexible and rigid foam were the most dominant product segments, accounting
for over 65% of total PU demand in 2011. Polyurethane is mainly employed in
furniture and interiors, construction, electronics and appliances, automotive,
footwear and packaging. Furniture and interior industry dominated the global
market followed by construction industry. The electronics and appliances
industry is expected to be the key growth market for polyurethanes over the
next five years.

Asia Pacific accounted for 40.4% of the total polyurethane market in 2011,
followed by Europe and North America. Asia Pacific is also expected to be the
fastest growing regional market in terms of both PU consumption and
production. This can be attributed to the growing economies and increase in
amount spent on luxurious products in this region. Cheap availability of raw
materials, skilled labor, land, and equipment has resulted in Asia Pacific
emerging as a key destination for manufacturers of polyurethanes. Europe is
the other major region where polyurethane consumption was very strong and is
expected to grow in demand with a CAGR of about 7.3% in terms of revenue from
2012 and 2018. BASF SE, Bayer MaterialScience, Huntsman Corporation, Dow
Chemicals, and Yantai Wanhua are some of the major participants in the
polyurethane industry.
