Key characteristics of polyurethanes, such as strength, elasticity, lightweight and corrosion resistance, have enabled manufacturers to develop new products, and PU has provided an alternative to paper, glass and metal.In many cases, the use of plastics in place of other materials has a significant positive effect on sustainable development.

Industries require materials that can help them reduce the weight of their products without compromising quality.

Polyurethane foam is durable and has higher mechanical strength compared to other polymers.Solid polyurethane has the highest specific durability among its peers.

Due to its high mechanical strength, polyurethane can provide insulation and be used in place of metals, such as for automobile parts that provide protection from shocks.

Globally, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest- and fastest-growing market and international players are investing significantly for strategic growth.Cheap labor, the huge customer base and the easy availability of raw materials are the key driving factors contributing to the growth of the polyurethanes market.

Leading automotive players such as Toyota, BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz have made significant investments in emerging economies.The Asia-Pacific region has witnessed significant growth in automotive manufacturing, building and construction expansions in recent years.
