COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic in 2019 engulfed the world. It caused a worldwide halt. The entire global economy was affected. In addition, many people have also lost their lives. Around 252,297,094 cases and 5,091,465 deaths have been reported worldwide so far for COVID-19. The pandemic spread to almost every country in the world. In most industries, the pandemic resulted in some form of loss. As a result of the pandemic, the polyurethane foam market also experienced a slowdown. Statista estimates that the polyurethane foam market total worldwide revenue stood at approximately US$ 3.94 trillion in 2019. In 2014, the polyurethane foam market generated revenues of US$ 5.4 trillion at a record high.

The degree of competition among prominent global companies has been developed by analyzing several leading competitors operating globally. In addition, specialist analysts examine various aspects of the polyurethane foam market, including market competition, market share, the most recent advancements in the industry, innovative product launches, partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions by leading companies.

The different types of polyurethane foam in the market include rigid, flexible, spray, and others. Rigid ones are used for the manufacturing of thermal insulating products owing to their high strength, lightweight, low density, and moisture resistance. The rising environmental concerns have increased the adoption of polyurethane foam in the construction sector. Use of rigid polyurethane foam results in enhanced energy efficiency, reduced project weight, and cost-efficiency.

The polyurethane foam of different density compositions such as high-density, medium-density, and low-density are available in the market. Low-density product is widely used in thermal insulation applications. Buildings are insulated with low-density products for heat and noise control. It also assists in reducing air leakage, increasing strength and durability, and improving the building’s resistance to wind uplift.

Polyurethane foam is used in diverse industries such as automotive, packaging, electrical and electronics, furniture and furnishing, building and construction, footwear, and others. The building and construction segment accounted for the highest share in 2020. However, the automotive segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.

The use of the polyurethane product in the vehicle body increases durability and strength while reducing overall weight, thereby offering insulation against heat and noise. The use of polyurethane foam in seats, armrests, headrests, doors, and windows provides improved comfort, enhanced safety, greater environmental performance, and higher energy efficiency.

Asia Pacific dominated the global market for polyurethane foam in 2020 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Increasing application in sealing and insulation of electronic products coupled with rising awareness regarding the adoption of electric vehicles fuels growth in this region. Rising industrial growth, urbanization, and growth in the automotive sector support market growth.

Increasing applications in construction and packaging industries further increase the demand for polyurethane foam in Asia-Pacific. Leading global players are expanding their presence in developing nations of China, Japan, India, and South Korea to tap the growth opportunities offered by these countries.

Owing to technological advancements, and the greater need to cater to customer requirements, companies are collaborating in order to strengthen the market presence and gain market share. Broadening of the product portfolio is another trend that is visible in the industry.
