Key Market Trends & Challenges:  

  • The increased use of methylal and HFOs as an alternative to HFCs and HCFCs will be a key trend influencing the growth of the polyurethane foam market. Methylal and HFOs are replacing HCFCs and HFCs as blowing agents in the manufacturing of PU foams. These alternatives are effective and have lower GWP content than HFCs and HCFCs.
  • The ban on HCFCs in the US and the emerging countries in Europe will increase the use of methylal in these countries. HFOs are regarded as the next-generation blowing agents and are widely used in the manufacturing of PU foams.
  • The increasing demand for alternatives to PU foams will negatively impact the global PU foam market during the forecast period. Natural latex, cotton fiber foam, organic wool, plain cotton, short staple polyester fiber, and polystyrene are used as substitutes for PU foams.
  • These products are direct substitutes for PU foams in the market and are available in large quantities. As PU foams possess serious environmental problems such as ozone layer depletion, these alternatives are used as substitutes in various applications such as furniture and bedding and building and constructions.
