Report Description
In the recent years PU (polyurethanes) market has witnessed double digit growth rate due to its broad range of applications such as rigid and flexible foams, paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants among many others. Polyurethane is mainly used as a substitute for metal, rubber, paint, cotton and other plastics. Key drivers of the polyurethane market include its environmental sustainability characteristics and healthy growth in the automotive industry. The key restraint in the polyurethane market is elevated pricing of raw materials such as crude oil, benzene and toluene.
