Polyurethane Chemicals & Products in South America– Volume 8 End-use Markets

This is the eighth 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 the end-use markets for polyurethane products.

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 the Americas. 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 first half of 2014, when respondents were able to discuss figures for the full year of 2013.

This report describes the supply and demand of raw materials in the following geographic regions:

South America
Rest of South America

This volume provides information relating to the major end-use markets for polyurethane products with estimates for 2013 and forecasts to 2018.

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 following major end-use sectors for polyurethane are covered in this volume:
- Automotive

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 application and raw material sectors
of the polyurethane industry.
