MDI Based Polyurethane Market Size, Share, Opportunities, And Trends By Application (Rigid Foam, Flexible Foam, CASE (Coatings, Adhesive, Sealants, And Elastomers)), By End-User Industry (Building And Construction, Automotive, Retail), And Geography - Forecasts From 2019 To 2024

Published: Mar 2020 | Report Code:  KSI061612304 | Pages:  110

The global MDI based polyurethane market was valued at US$21.249 billion in 2018 and is estimated to grow at a substantial rate during the forecast period. Methylenediphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) is a chemical used in the production of polyurethanes for many applications. It is majorly used in the production of rigid polyurethane foam used for providing insulation in buildings, refrigerators, and other applications. Burgeoning demand for energy efficient buildings is playing an important role in the augmented demand for this material since they are energy efficient. Growing regulation related to the energy conservation on commercial buildings in both developed and developing countries is driving the MDI based polyurethane market growth. Geographically, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a good rate due to growing industrialization and construction activities in the region.
