Based on type, the one-component polyurethane sealants segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The growth of the segment is driven by the increasing demand for one-component polyurethane sealants from the building & construction and automotive industry and rise in their application. One-component sealants consist of a prepolymer that is made by reacting a polyol with an excess of diisocyanate. On application, the isocyanate groups react with moisture from air to yield cured polyureas. One-component sealants are primarily used for sealing roofs, electrical cable, and in plumbing.
Based on end-use industry, the automotive segment of the polyurethane sealants market is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The growing automotive industry is a key driver for the polyurethane sealants market. Polyurethane sealants find numerous uses in automobile, such as front glass windshield, side glass, and car body. They are used in places requiring moderate adhesion but high elongation.
