The global polyurethane additives market is projected to grow from USD 3.7 billion in 2020 to USD 4.5 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.2%. The demand for polyurethane additives in emerging economies, such as APAC and South America, is increasing owing to the growing construction industry. The volatility in raw material prices and the recyclability of polyurethanes is hindering the polyurethane additives market. The demand for polyurethane additives is increasing, owing to the growing demand for innovative and cost-effective additives. This increase in demand for bio-based polyurethane additives provides growth opportunities to the market. On the other hand, the increasing regulatory pressure towards the usage of bio-based products is the major challenges for the market.

Automotive & transportation segment is estimated to lead the overall polyurethane additives market
Polyurethanes are used in various parts of an automobile. In addition to the foam that makes car seats comfortable, bumpers, interior “headline” ceiling sections, the car body, spoilers, doors and windows all use polyurethanes. Polyurethane enables manufacturers to provide drivers and passengers significantly more automobile mileage by reducing weight and increasing fuel economy, comfort, corrosion resistance, insulation, and sound absorption.
Foams segment is estimated to lead the polyurethane additives market
Polyurethane foams are manufactured by reacting polyols and isocyanates in the presence of a blowing agent and an amine catalyst. The blowing agent is carbon dioxide, which is formed as a by-product of the reaction between water and isocyanate. The amine catalyst is known to accelerate the reaction. Polyurethane foams are of two types, namely rigid polyurethane foam and flexible polyurethane foam. Foams offer various properties such as comfort and insulating properties when used in various industries such as automotive and building & construction, which is driving the market.
APAC is projected to be the fastest-growing market for polyurethane additives. The rising population, increased demand for automobiles, growing disposable income, rapid industrialization, and increased urbanization are driving the APAC polyurethane additives market. China is the largest market for polyurethane additives in the region. China is also a major producer and consumer of polyurethane additives in the region as it has a huge manufacturing base. Apart from China, India and South Korea are projected to grow at a decent rate during the forecast period.
