One-Component Polyurethane Foam Market Size and Forecast (2021 - 2031), Global and Regional Share, Trend, and Growth Opportunity Analysis Report Coverage: By Raw Material (Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate, Toluene Diisocyanate, Polyether Polyols, Polyester Polyols, and Others), Application (Construction, Insulation, Packaging, Automotive, and Others), End Use (Residential and Commercial), and Geography (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South & Central America)

According to the International Trade Administration, China is the world's largest construction market. Overall investment in new infrastructure during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021–2025) will reach approximately US$ 4.2 trillion (27 trillion yuan). Despite the drop in new construction in 2021–2022, there are potentially significant opportunities for construction firms focusing on retrofitting old buildings. In addition to the continuous population growth, rising household income levels and the increasing number of people migrating from rural to urban areas favor the proliferation of the residential construction industry in the country. Thus, in terms of revenue, China dominated the one-component polyurethane foam market share. According to the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) report, the Indian government has announced its plans to boost the infrastructure and construction services through several policies such as large budget allocation to the infrastructure sector, open FDI norms, and smart cities mission. The report also stated that the real estate industry in India is projected to reach US$ 1 trillion by 2030, along with an increased year-on-year infrastructure Capex by 34% to reach US$ 6.7 million. Further, rapid urbanization in Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and New Zealand is fueling construction activities in the Rest of Asia Pacific. The augmented focus on affordable housing by the public and private sectors further contributes to progress in the residential construction industry.

The Chinese government is taking several initiatives to support automobile manufacturers in enhancing the production capacity of the country to 35 million units of vehicles by 2025. According to the 2022 report by the International Energy Agency, China recorded electric vehicle sales of 3.3?million in 2021. This rising demand for electric vehicles is accelerating the one-component polyurethane foam market growth. Moreover, the growing automotive industries in these countries drive the demand for one-component polyurethane foam for applications such as noise insulation, vibration damping, and sealing. As the automotive sector continues to expand, driven by rising disposable incomes and increasing vehicle ownership, the demand for high-performance materials such as polyurethane foam is expected to surge. Additionally, the electronics and packaging industries across countries in Asia Pacific are witnessing significant growth, driven by the increasing adoption of electronic devices and e-commerce activities.

As the region continues to witness an increase in automobile production and sales, there is an increasing demand for vehicles equipped with advanced soundproofing and vibration-damping features. According to the International OICA, Asia-Oceania's vehicle production increased from 50 million in 2022 to 55.1 million in 2023. Thus, all these factors are propelling the one-component polyurethane foam market size in Asia Pacific.

Global One-Componenet Polyurethane Foam Market: Trends

One-component polyurethane foam offers several advantages that align with sustainable goals. It is highly energy-efficient, providing superior thermal insulation properties that help reduce the heating and cooling costs of buildings. By improving the energy efficiency of structures, polyurethane foam contributes to lower carbon emissions and reduced reliance on fossil fuels for heating and cooling, thereby supporting environmental sustainability efforts.

Moreover, advancements in polyurethane foam formulations have led to the development of eco-friendly alternatives that use bio-based or recycled materials as feedstocks. These bio-based and recycled polyurethane foams offer comparable performance to traditional petroleum-based foams while reducing reliance on finite fossil fuel resources and mitigating the environmental impact of production. Additionally, these sustainable formulations help address concerns about waste management and contribute to the circular economy by utilizing renewable or recycled materials in foam production. Furthermore, the versatility of one-component polyurethane foam extends its applicability to green building practices and sustainable construction projects. Builders and developers increasingly incorporate polyurethane foam insulation into green building designs to achieve energy-efficient and environmentally friendly buildings that meet green building certifications such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methods. The use of polyurethane foam in green buildings enhances energy efficiency and improves indoor air quality, occupant comfort, and overall building performance while aligning with sustainability objectives. Thus, the rising demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly foam is likely to bring in new trends, which would, in turn, foster the one-component polyurethane foam market growth across many industries.
