Global Polyurethane Additive Market Type (Antioxidants, Catalysts, Emulsifier, Stabilizers, Fillers, Flame Retardants) Applications (Flexible Foam, Rigid Foam, Coating, Adhesives & Sealants) End-Use Industry (Building & Construction, Automotive, Furniture, Packaging, Footwear) by Region till 2023
Published 12 February 2018
Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and Middle East & Africa are the major regions in the Global Polyurethane Additive Market. Asia Pacific region dominated the market with about 47% share of the global market, in 2016. China alone accounted for around 35% of the regional market share. Followed by China, India, and Indonesia along with Japan hold the major share of the regional Polyurethane Additive Market. The demand for Polyurethane Additive is increasing with the increasing demand for rigid foams, especially, from building & construction and automotive industry. Growing construction activities undertaken by the governments as well as private players in the region is further driving the demand for Polyurethane Additive. An ambitious project of Chinese government called One Belt One Road (OBOR), which involve infrastructure development along the Asian and European countries is expected to boost the demand for rigid foams. Moreover, the Indian government is taking up various social as well as physical infrastructure projects. All these trends in developing economies in this region would collectively drive the growth of the regional market. Apart from building & construction, the automotive & transportation industry holds a significant market share in this region. The demand for flexible foams using Polyurethane Additive in an application like furniture and bedding industry is anticipated to grow hand in hand during the forecast period. Moreover, countries like India, Indonesia, and Bangladesh are emphasizing the revival of their footwear industry in order to generate more jobs for unskilled labor and tap the market left vacant by China.
