Methylene Diphenyl Isocyanate Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Form (Pure MDI, Polymeric MDI, Modified MDI), By Application (Rigid Foam, Flexible Foam, Others) And Regional Forecast 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104564 | Status : Ongoing



Methylene Diphenyl Isocyanate abbreviated as MDI is an aromatic type of isocyanate with three isomers. The isomers are formed due to the varying position of isocyanate group around the rings 2,2’MDI, 2,4’ MDI, and 4,4’MDI. Out of these isomers 4,4’ MDI is the purest and most widely used isomer. MDI reacts with polyols to manufacture polyurethane, an important polymer.

Increasing demand for polyurethane from various end-use sectors is likely to drive the market growth. High demand for polyurethane foams, elastomers, sealants & coatings, adhesives and other products is positively affecting the market. Additionally, the increasing constructional activities is one of the key factor boosting the market growth.

However, production of polyurethane and handling of MDI involves compliance of stringent rules and regulations due to the allergic nature of MDI. This is expected to restrain the market growth.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing demand for polyurethane.

Key Market Restraint -

Stringent environmental regulations.
