The polyurethane foam insulation materials have an open cellular structure and are available in flexible- spray- and rigid foams. Polyurethane foams are lightweight, chemically stable, versatile, flexible, and durable, which offers resistance to moisture, heat, electricity, making them ideal in residential & non-residential construction, oil & gas, and automotive industries.
The factors that drives the market growth are rise in construction industry, due to change in lifestyle patterns in emerging countries, such as China, India, Brazil, Middle East, and Africa, owing to the rapid economic development and increase in disposable income and surge in the automotive and oil & gas industries, caused by the increase in use of microporous insulation, and demand for high temperature insulation. However, volatile prices of raw materials and regulatory intervention from the environment bodies & federal agencies may hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, rise in awareness about green building concept and production of bio-based polyols are the factors expected to offer major opportunities to the market.
The flexible foams are the leading type of polyurethane foam insulation materials. They are extremely lightweight and highly durable, which can be molded into different shapes. These are commonly used for cushioning automotive interiors and provides thermal insulation in residential construction sector.
