1. Introduction Binders

This is the seventh volume in a series of eight, examining the market for polyurethane chemicals and their use in the manufacture of polyurethane products in South America. This volume focuses specifically on polyurethane binders.

The titles of all eight volumes are:
Volume 1: Raw Materials
Volume 2: Flexible Foam
Volume 3: Rigid Foam
Volume 4: Coatings
Volume 5: Adhesives & Sealants
Volume 6: Elastomers
Volume 7: Binders
Volume 8: End-use Markets

Each volume can be used alone and includes a summary containing details of the total use of polyurethane chemicals. This new study revises and updates IAL’sresearch of the polyurethane industry in South America. It builds upon ongoing research into various sectors conducted in recent years. The information contained within this report is based upon an extensive programme of interviews throughout the industry, involving raw materials producers and suppliers, end users, systems houses and relevant trade
associations and industry experts. Most research for this report was undertaken during the second half of 2013, when respondents were able to discuss figures for the full year of 2013. This report therefore contains both PU product production and raw material consumption figures for the year 2013 and forecasts to 2018.

This report describes the supply and demand of raw materials in the following countries:
- Argentina
- Brazil
- Chile
- Colombia
- Peru
- Venezuela
- Rest of South America

Information provided in this volume has been obtained from existing in-house data and an extensive programme of interviews with leading product manufacturers, trade associations, raw materials producers and systems houses across South America. Published data and statistics have also been reviewed in order to produce as accurate figures as possible for the consumption of raw materials in the production of polyurethane products. Forecasts for the production of PU products and consumption of raw materials
have been calculated for the year 2018, based upon industry and economic forecasts as well as upon other relevant commercial and technical issues likely to affect individual market sectors and products. Detailed market analyses of all product sectors are presented in the relevant volumes. Slight discrepancies in the totals may occur, due to rounding.

The production of polyurethane binders and related raw material demand is broken down as follows:
- Forest Products
- Foundry Core
- Rubber Crumb
- Other –non specific

All the volumes quoted in this report relate to tonnes of finished PU binders and tonnes of raw material consumed, including the additives, fillers and other materials.

The forecasts included in this report are based upon industry comments and economic indicators. It can be difficult to present a summary of forecasts for all the various types of polyurethane materials because of the many different factors which may affect the market. Manufacturers themselves are often unable to agree whether a market will increase or decrease, preferring instead to quote the factors most likely to influence it. Forecasts for changes in production by product type and by each application are
given for each country covered in this report. These are five-year forecasts, derived from industry comments and expectations, both from the end users and raw material sectors of the polyurethane industry. Forecasts for production in 2018 are given alongside the actual production figures provided for 2013. Additional statistical information to support the market figures for each end-use sector is provided in Volume 8 of this report.

The multitude of proprietary formulations used in the various product sectors of the polyurethanes industry means that a number of assumptions have to be necessarily made with respect to product formulations. In this section, the assumptions made (expressed as % w/w formulations) in calculating raw material consumption by product are presented. Since volumes are derived from the below formulations, figures therefore are presented as exact figures.
