The global isocyanates market has been estimated at USD XX.XX billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD XX.XX billion by 2021, at a CAGR of X.XX% during the forecast period, 2016 to 2021.

Isocyanates are a group of highly reactive, low-molecular-weight chemicals. They are commonly dissolved in aromatic solvents such as xylene and toluene, which in themselves are toxic. Isocyanates are highly reactive materials that are used for manufacturing polyurethane products such as chemicals, polyurethane foam, insulation materials, surface coatings, car seats, furniture, foam mattresses, under-carpet padding, packaging materials, shoes, laminated fabrics, polyurethane rubber, and adhesives.

Market Dynamics

The isocyanate market is mainly driven by the huge growth in end-use segments of the polyurethanes industry, growing industrialization activities in major developing economies such as China, Japan, and India and advancement in technology. However, this market faces certain drawbacks like the stringent government regulations, environmental concerns and its highly toxic and hazardous nature, which may act as roadblocks to the growth of the market.

Market Segmentation

The global isocyanates market can be categorized by the type of isocyanate, application and end-user industry. By type, isocyanates are segmented into methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), toluene diisocyanate (TDI), aliphatic isocyanate and other isocyanates. By application, the global isocyanate market is segmented into rigid foam, flexible foam, paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, elastomers and binders.

The market has also been geographically segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. With the majority of the market driven by China and India, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness a significant growth over the forecast period, followed by North America and Europe. Due to the increasing regulatory intervention from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the environmental and health effects associated with MDI and TDI, North America is expected to register a moderate demand. Due to the stringent environmental regulations and low-growth in end-user industries, the European demand for the isocyanate market is estimated to grow at a slow rate.

The global demand for the high-efficiency bio-based isocyanates is anticipated to offer huge growth opportunities.

Some of the major companies dominating the market are:

The Dow Chemical Company
Huntsman Corporation
Yantai Sanjiang Chemical Industry Material Co., Ltd.
Anderson Development Company
Asahi Kasei Chemicals
Chemtura Corp.
