Market Overview:

Microcellular polyurethane foam is a type of foam that is composed of small cells. These cells are typically less than 2 mm in diameter, which gives the foam its microcellular structure. This structure makes the foam more compressible and helps to improve its insulation properties. Microcellular polyurethane foams are available in both low density and high density varieties, depending on their intended application. Low density foams are generally used for applications where greater compressibility is desired, such as automotive seating or bedding.

Global Microcellular Polyurethane Foam Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Microcellular Polyurethane Foam is a type of foam that contains very small cells, or bubbles. This makes the foam very lightweight and soft. It is often used in furniture, mattresses, and other items that need to be soft and lightweight.

Low Density Foam:

Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) foam is a type of polyurethane polymer, which is produced by the catalytic polymerization of ethylene. It has high thermal stability and low density.

High Density Foam:

High-density foams are closed cell polymeric foams that have a high ratio of volume to surface area. They possess superior insulating properties and can be used in various end-use industries including construction, transportation, packaging, furniture & bedding. The global market for high density foam is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its rising demand from emerging economies such as China and India along with some European countries such as Germany and France.

Application Insights:

The market is segmented based on application into automotive, electronics, building and construction, medical and aerospace. The building and construction sector was the largest revenue contributor in 2016 owing to rising demand for cellular PU foam products in soundproofing applications. Soundproofing involves the reduction of acoustic transmission through a material with minimal or no impact on the overall performance of a structure. Microcellular PU foam is used as an insulation material in buildings to reduce noise pollution caused by aircraft engines or traffic below.

Microcellular polyurethane foams are increasingly being utilized for cushioning applications such as car seats, sofa cushions, bedding components and even office chairs which help enhance comfort while reducing fatigue over long periods of time. In addition they provide support to back thereby enhancing spinal health when incorporated into furniture components.

Regional Analysis:

North America is expected to be the fastest growing regional market with a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for microcellular PU foam from various end-use industries such as automotive, building and construction, electronics, medical and others. North America has been witnessing rapid urbanization which has led to an increase in spending on construction activities in this region. This factor is anticipated to have a positive impact on industry growth over the next eight years.

Asia Pacific dominated the global market with a revenue share of 38% in 2017 owing to high product demand from developing countries such as China.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the construction and automotive industries for insulation and noise-cancellation applications
  • Growing popularity of polyurethane foam in bedding and furniture manufacturing
  • Rising demand for lightweight, high-performance materials in aerospace and marine applications
  • Proliferation of polyurethane foam products as a green building material
  • Technological advancements that improve the performance, durability, and recyclability of polyurethane foam
