Polyurethane Additives Market Size, Share, Trend, Forecast, Competitive Analysis, and Growth Opportunity: 2023-2028
Polyurethane Additives Market Is Segmented by Type (Catalysts, Surfactants, Filler, Flame Retardants, and Others), by Application Type (Foams, Adhesives & Sealants, Coatings, Elastomers, and Others), by End-Use Industry Type (Automotive & Transportation, Building & Construction, Bedding & Furniture, Electronics, and Others), and by Region (North America [The USA, Canada, and Mexico], Europe [Germany, France, The UK, Russia, and Rest of Europe], Asia-Pacific [China, Japan, South Korea, India, and Rest of Asia-Pacific], and Rest of the World [Brazil, Saudi Arabia, and Others]).
Polyurethane polymers are enhanced and given an overall performance boost by the addition of chemical substances referred to as polyurethane additives. It improves features like those that affect processing speed and the polymer's stability, and it raises polymer characteristics like improved insulation and other characteristics. They are occasionally utilized to enhance the properties of binders, sealants, elastomers, varnishes, and adhesives. High-performance items that are robust but lightweight, function well, and are durable and versatile are made with polyurethane additives.
Consumption of additives is projected to increase in the near future due to the building industry's increasing need for polyurethane. One of the most prevalent uses is the creation of insulated panels, gap fillers, and wall and roof insulation using rigid polyurethane foam. Certain firm PU foams can be used to fill in cracks and cover odd forms. These foams, which boost market growth, include spray, pour-in-place, and one-component foams. Overall, the polyurethane additives market is likely to rebound at a promising CAGR of 3.7% in the long run from 2023-2028.
The polyurethane additives market is segmented into catalysts, surfactants, filler, flame retardants, and others. Flame Retardants is expected to remain the largest in the market during the forecast period. Among the flame retardants of concern (TDCPP) are substances made of organohalogens and organophosphates, such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated trisiloxanes (CTXs).
There are various kinds of flame retardants, including some that are inorganic and some that are chlorinated, brominated, and phosphorous based. These are employed to create premium polyurethanes used in a variety of industries, including construction, automotive, and electronics. The market for polyurethane additives is therefore anticipated to grow during the forecast period as a result of the increased use of flame retardants in the production of polyurethanes.
The polyurethane additives market is segmented into automotive & transportation, building & construction, bedding & furniture, electronics, and others. In the creation of foams, coatings, and elastomers—which are increasingly used in the transportation sector—polyurethane additives like catalysts, surfactants, fillers, and flame retardants are used. The exterior of the vehicle is coated with polyurethane to give it a high sheen, durability, scratch resistance, and corrosion resistance. Additionally, it is utilized to strengthen materials, glaze windows and windshields, and offer fog resistance.
In addition to enhancing emulsification and nucleation, preventing coalescence, stabilizing cell membranes, and increasing ingredient compatibility and lowering surface tension, polyurethane additives also inhibit coalescence. As a result of these factors, it is projected that throughout the projection period, demand for polyurethane additives would increase along with the booming transportation sector.
Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for polyurethane additives during the forecast period. The growing demand for polyurethane foams, coatings, elastomers, and adhesives from a variety of end-use industries, including building and construction, transportation, electronics, and packaging, is a major driver of the market for polyurethane additives in the area.
The rising manufacturing of automobiles in developing nations like India, Japan, and China is a major factor driving the demand for polyurethane additives. The market is expanding due to the expanding usage of flexible foams in interior systems for cars, planes, and trains. China continues to be the world's largest car market by both annual sales and manufacturing output, according to the International Trade Administration, with local production anticipated.
One of the biggest economies in the world, China, sees the construction industry outpace nearly all others in terms of growth. The revenue of Chinese construction companies reached CNY 8,013.8 billion in 2021, an increase of 2.1% from the previous year. Profits made by construction businesses eligible for general and specialized contracts was CNY 855.4 billion, up 1.3% from the previous year, of which CNY 362.0 billion, up 8.0%, was made by state-holding businesses.
