Global Microcellular Polyurethane Foam Market to Reach a Value of $8.1 Billion by 2026 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

March 3, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 3, 2020--

The “Microcellular Polyurethane Foam Market by Type and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2026” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Microcellular polyurethane foam market accounted for revenue of $5.2 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to generate $8.1 billion by 2026. The market is projected to experience growth at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2019 to 2026.

Microcellular polyurethane foam is flexible, open cell, and closed cell urethane foam that is very economical possess excellent resistance to compression set. The foam has good cushioning, sealing, and vibration control due to very low compression properties. Also, the open cell structure allows gas and vapors to pass through the material. It can also be formulated to form an integral skin, as it is mechanically mixed, and hence the cell size is more uniform. Automotive application accounts for the largest share of the global microcellular polyurethane foam market due to its use in cushioning purposes, as well as in bodies of the car, where their insulation properties provide protection against heat and noise of the engine. Microcellular polyurethane foam are used in electrical potting compounds, seals & gaskets, automotive bushings, durable elastomeric wheels & tires, hard plastic parts, and carpet underlay.

The factors that drive the microcellular polyurethane foam market growth are application areas such as automotive, aerospace, & construction industries. The use of microcellular foams in several parts of auto vehicles, aircrafts, medical, and in insulation purposes in housing constructions have led to increase in demand for such foams. Moreover, increase in consumer spending in emerging economies also drive the microcellular polyurethane foam market. However, volatile raw material prices hamper the microcellular polyurethane foam market growth as fluctuations in the prices influences the production of process. Moreover, environmental impact related to raw materials used are strictly regulated by many governing bodies with goal to reduce carbon footprint acting as a factor restraining the growth of the global microcellular polyurethane foam market.
