Urethane Foam Manufacturing in the US

The Urethane Foam Manufacturing industry has expanded over the five years to 2016. Improving economic conditions have sustained increased demand from important downstream markets, such as construction and automobile production. In addition, downstream demand from residential and nonresidential construction activity is expected to boost sales of urethane products used in insulation, furniture and carpets. Similarly, demand for cars will increase purchases of urethane used in seat cushions and vehicle insulation. Over the five years to 2021, industry revenue is expected to continue rising.

This industry manufactures plastic foam products (except polystyrene). These products are used to insulate objects or reduce shock. Plastic foam products are used in bedding, packaging, seat cushioning, carpet cushioning, car interiors, fluid filtration systems, anti-noise and vibration systems in aircraft, medical devices, and a number of consumer applications such as sponges, mops, paint brushes and cosmetic applicators.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
