This market research study identifies BASF, Covestro, Evonik Industries, Huntsman International, and The Dow Chemical Company as the leading players in the global polyurethane additives market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application (elastomers, adhesives and sealants, coatings, foams, and binders), by end user (bedding and furniture, automotive and transportation, building and construction, and others), and by geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW).

Overview of the global polyurethane additives market

According to Technavio’s market research report, the global polyurethane additives market will grow at a CAGR of more than 6% during the forecast period. The growing demand for polyurethane additives from the automotive industry is identified as one of the key drivers for the market’s growth in the forthcoming years. Polyurethane additives are extensively used for several applications to offer both comfort and insulation. Silicone surfactants, release agents, and other additives improve the durability, comfort, and appearance of cushions for headrests, seating, and armrests. The sound absorption of door panels can be improved by using polyurethane additives. They are also used to offer better grip and control on the steering wheel. The industry highly depends on polyurethane since they help in the reduction of the weight of the vehicle.

The rapid urbanization and industrialization in APAC is propelling the need for insulation. This in turn, boosts the demand for polyurethane additives. The adoption of polyurethane additives will continue to grow in the region until the end of 2021 due to the increasing demand for energy-efficient buildings. The building and construction industry in China, Japan, India, and South Korea will further grow due to the increasing population and changing lifestyle.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The polyurethane additives market is characterized by the presence of both large and small vendors. The major players in the market are trying to shield themselves from the threat of rivalry by adopting mergers and acquisitions. Though the prominent players will continue to secure a strong foothold in the market, the small and medium scale vendors are focusing on the development of innovative products.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • BASF
  • Covestro
  • Evonik Industries
  • Huntsman International
  • The Dow Chemical Company

Other prominent vendors in the market include Albemarle Corporation, Air Products and Chemicals, Eastman Chemical Company, Gulbrandsen, KOA Corporation, LANXESS, Momentive, Peterson Chemical Technology, Schill + Seilacher "Struktol", and Tosoh Corporation.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the polyurethane additives market

  • Elastomers
  • Adhesives and sealants
  • Coatings
  • Foams
  • Binders

The formulation of foams uses additives that enhance the stability and comfort of the material. The application of polyurethane additives in foams will continue to increase throughout the predicted period since they increase the compatibility of raw materials, reduce the surface tension in polyurethane foam systems, and improve emulsification and nucleation.

Segmentation by end user and analysis of the polyurethane additives market

  • Bedding and furniture
  • Automotive and transportation
  • Building and construction

The demand for insulation applications to reduce the energy cost and maintain the optimum temperature is increasing in the building and construction industry. This propels the demand for polyurethane additives. The growth of the construction industry in the US and some of the developing economies such as India and China, will also fuel the adoption of polyurethane additives.
