Polyurethane Foam Market to Surpass USD 70 Billion by 2028
Published | 02 May 2022
The polyurethane foam market is growing due to significant expansions in the building industry, along with rising product demand from the furnishing sector along with the extensive usage of flexible and semi-rigid polyurethane foams with coatings, paints, and adhesives in residential and commercial buildings…
A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the polyurethane foam market was worth USD 42.9 billion in the year 2021. The global polyurethane foam market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 7.40%, earning revenues of around USD 70.1 billion by the end of 2028. One of the major market drivers is the continuing expansion in the building industry, along with increasing product demand from the furnishing sector. In addition, the extensive usage of flexible and semi-rigid polyurethane foams with coatings, paints, and adhesives in residential and commercial buildings is fueling market expansion. However, the high cost of raw materials involved in the production of polyurethane foam may act as a huge restraining factor for the market growth.
High Demand for High-Density Composition Foam is Driving Polyurethane Foam Market
Based on density composition, the global polyurethane foam market is segmented into low-density polyurethane foams, medium-density polyurethane foams, and high-density polyurethane foams. The high-density polyurethane foam segment accounts for the largest market share. This kind of density composition is an industrial-grade foam that comes in all firmness. It is highly capable of withstanding high pressure, unlike other density compositions, due to which they are widely used in various industries including building and construction.
Expanding Building and Construction Industry is Propelling Polyurethane Foam Market Growth
Based on end-user, the global polyurethane foam market is segmented into bedding & furniture, building & construction, electronics, automotive, footwear, packaging, and others. The building and construction industry accounts for the largest market share owing to the wide range of polyurethane foam in this sector. This foam is utilized as a thermal insulator, in flooring and waterproofing, as well as for air sealing. Spray and stiff polyurethane foams are also employed in construction as structural and insulating foams.
