Polyurethane Catalyst Market – Market Overview

The Polyurethane Catalysts are the key component used in the manufacturing process of polyurethane to accelerate and modify the reaction conditions and final product. The growing market of polyurethane owing to their wide applications in rigid foam, flexible foam, molded foam, elastomers, and coatings ace on account of its greater adaptability are bound to significantly influence the Global Polyurethane Catalyst Market. For instance, growing demand of rigid polyurethane foams in construction industry and rising demand of flexible polyurethane foams in automotive and electronics application. However, volatile prices of raw materials, strong competition to polyurethane from polystyrene and fiberglass, and growing R&D activities for eco-friendly polyurethane substitute are likely to hamper the Global Polyurethane Catalyst Market growth during the forecast period.

The Global Polyurethane Catalyst Market is segmented based on product type into 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO), triethylenediamine (TEDA), dibutyltin dilaurate, dimethylethanolamine (DMEA), bismuth compound , zinc compound, and others. Amongst the product type, DABCO and TEDA accounted to collectively dominating the Global Polyurethane Catalyst Market in 2016 owing to their wide application in the manufacturing of flexible and rigid polyurethane foams and are expected to continue growth over the forecast period. However, due to growing health concerns of amine based polyurethane catalysts, non-toxic metal based catalyst such as bismuth and zinc compound may rise as a prime choice for manufacturing polyurethane products over the forecast period. The Global Polyurethane Catalyst Market is segmented based on application into rigid foam, flexible foam, molded foam, elastomers, adhesives, coatings, and others. Flexible foam held around 31% market share of the Global Polyurethane Catalyst Market in 2016 and is expected to show bolstering demand during the forecast period.
