1. Introduction Elastomers
This is the sixth volume in a series of eight, examining the market for polyurethane chemicals and their use in the manufacture of polyurethane products in Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA). This volume focuses specifically on polyurethane elastomers.
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’s research of the polyurethane industry in EMEA. 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.
The research for this report was undertaken during the second half of 2013 and first half of 2014, when respondents were able to discuss figures for the full year of 2013. This report contains raw material consumption figures for the production of all major polyurethane product types, for the year 2013 and forecasts to 2018.
