Polyurethanes are some of the most versatile polymers in existence today. They exist in myriad forms ranging from rigid foams to dense solid compositions and from flexible foams to elastomers. Polyurethanes are commercially available in various forms, ranging from flexible or rigid lightweight foams to tough, stiff, and strong elastomers. This enables their use in a wide variety of consumer and industrial applications such as thermal insulation of buildings, refrigerators, household furniture, automotive seating, shoe soles. A shift in production from China to countries where goods can be produced at lower cost is set to change the landscape of the global polyurethane industry. The landscape could change further as companies consider shifting production to even cheaper countries like Vietnam.
The Asia Pacific Polyurethane market is segmented by Application (Foams-Rigid and Flexible, Adhesives and Sealants, Coatings, Elastomers, and others), by industry (Furniture and Interiors, Constructions, Automotive and others) and regionally (India, China, Japan, South Korea and other countries).
