The new organization will make use of numerous resources to increase the commercialization of sustainable innovations and leading-edge solutions.

Low Demand from End-Use Industries due to the Pandemic Negatively Impacted the Market 

Halt in manufacturing activities led to hindrances across the globe due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It impacted the applications and other parallel activities. Several isocyanates and polyols orders were canceled and postponed which led to production outages. Low demand from the end-use industries due to the pandemic negatively impacted the growth of the market during the forecast period. In June 2022, the prices plunged to new lows due to slow recovery and uncertainty.

Rising Adoption of Adhesives and High Quality PU Coating to Drive Market Growth

Rising adoption of adhesives and high quality PU coating is predicted to drive the polyurethane market growth. PU adhesives are used in vehicle interiors to bond windshields, seal fuel tanks, and residential buildings and construction applications. They are durable, flexible, and have better bonding and impact resistance. They have the ability to adhere to a great extent to the base material. The demand for adhesives from construction projects is expected to be one of the leading market trends.

The product is versatile in nature due to its wide applications. However, there are many alternatives available in the market, which can act as a replacement for the product. This is set to hamper the demand for the product.
