Overview of the global polyurethane sealants market

With the focus to obtain better jobs, better lifestyle, and other amenities, a large number of individuals are shifting to metropolitan cities. This is inducing the emerging countries to make huge investments towards the development of residential homes. According to Technavio’s polyurethane sealants industry analysis, the rise in construction activities in the developing countries will be one of the primary growth factors for the polyurethane sealants market. It has been observed that the emerging countries will account for more than 60% of the global construction industry by 2025. This will in turn, fuel the demand for polyurethane (PU) sealants, since they are used to fill in joints on a surface. Furthermore, the cost-effectiveness and waterproof nature of these sealants also fuels their demand for applications in construction activities, driving market growth. Our polyurethane sealants market research analysts estimate that the PU sealant market will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 5% by 2021.

The growing focus towards reducing the weight of materials will be one of the major polyurethane sealants market trends that will gain traction in the polyurethane sealants market in the coming years. With the increasing global population, there is an excessive consumption of all resources. This will compel the need to adopt lightweight design to reduce the usage of materials and energy resources. The automotive industry already has the need to reduce the weight of the vehicles to meet the stringent fuel efficiency regulations and is focusing on using materials such as plastic, composites, and aluminum. The growing focus towards the usage of lightweight materials will drive the demand for adhesives and sealants such as PU seals owing to the high load capacity of the seal and the potentiality of their structure.
