Polyurethane Catalysts Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges
The strong demand from the automotive industry is notably driving the polyurethane catalysts market growth, although factors such as growing awareness of the negative impact of polyurethane on the environment may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the polyurethane catalysts industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.
Key Polyurethane Catalysts Market Driver
- One of the key factors driving the global polyurethane catalysts market growth is the strong demand from the automotive industry.
- The total disposable incomes of Indian households have been increasing since 2018. Increasing disposable incomes and the rising number of affordable cars launched by OEMs are increasing the demand for passenger cars in India.
- Increasing disposable incomes, especially in emerging nations, are expected to create several new demands in the automotive sector and increase the number of first-time buyers.
- The passenger car market in India is smaller than that in other emerging countries such as China, Brazil, and South Korea. In addition, there is an increasing demand for passenger cars from the country's small towns and rural areas.
- An increase in the demand for automobiles, especially from emerging countries, is expected to boost the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Key Polyurethane Catalysts Market Trend
- Increasing demand for rigid polyurethane foam is one of the key polyurethane catalysts market trends that is expected to impact the industry positively in the forecast period.
- Rigid polyurethane foam is a necessary and cost-effective material that may be utilized to achieve energy ratings in consumer refrigerators and freezers. In addition, hard polyurethane foam is employed in boats.
- Rigid foams for refrigerator and freezer thermal insulation systems are typical polyurethane applications in large appliances.
- Rigid polyurethane foam insulates boats from noise and temperature extremes, boosts load-bearing capability, and adds minimum weight. Such factors are expected to further support the market growth in the coming years.
Key Polyurethane Catalysts Market Challenge
- One of the key challenges to the global polyurethane catalysts market growth is the growing awareness of the negative impact of polyurethane on the environment.
- The polymers are used to make high-resilience foam seating, rigid foam insulation panels, foam seats, and gaskets, elastomeric wheels and tires, high-performance adhesives and surface coatings, and sealants.
- Polyurethane waste comprises several harmful substances such as isocyanates, hydrocyanic acid, and dioxins. In addition, polyurethane materials disposed of in landfills disintegrate into toxic, environmentally harmful compounds.
- As most polyurethanes are thermosetting polymers that do not melt when heated, recycling polyurethane is currently challenging and energy demanding. These and other factors are expected to impede the growth of the polyurethane catalyst market during the forecast period.
This polyurethane catalysts market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2022-2026.
