Global Polyurethane Foam Market was valued at USD 42.8 billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach USD 61.5 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period (2022–2028).
Polyurethane foam is an extensively used polymer and plastic. They are available in two forms i.e., Rigid and flexible foams. Rigid foams are used for various insulation applications pertaining to refrigeration and construction. Its energy efficient and help in cutting energy costs. Flexible foams are used mainly as a cushioning substance in end-use industries such as packaging, furniture, bedding and transportation.
Environmental benefits of this product include high recyclability and clean incineration for pollutant filtration, reduced wastage, and greater sustainability. However, several governments and federal agencies are increasingly being concerned with the detrimental health effects of isocyanates utilized in PU production. Growing need in automotive components including dashboards, armrests, airbags, other vehicular components, and exteriors is anticipated to drive consumption. Strengthening economies, improvements in sovereign balance sheets, and positive demographic outlook, mainly in Southeast Asian countries such as India, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand are likely to contribute to high growth in demand. Polyurethane foams are anticipated to witness increased market penetration owing to properties such as superior insulation that is ideal for roofs and walls in new houses. Their usage in buildings helps to maintain uniform temperature and reducing noise levels. Increasing construction spending in countries such as India, Indonesia, Korea, UAE, and Qatar due to strong industrial sector growth coupled with rising urban population is anticipated to fuel growth.
Governmental support in the form of tax incentives and subsidy schemes to encourage the manufacturing sector in countries such as China and India are also likely to promote bio-based PU to replace conventional polymers.

Polyurethane foam is used in insulation, adhesives, sealants, and binders in a variety of construction products and other applications. Polyurethane foams are highly flexible materials, which help reduce total infrastructural costs by minimizing energy consumption in buildings. They enable architects to insulate buildings in an improved manner, which reduces the consumptions of gas, oil, and electricity in them. This has led increased use of polyurethane foams for building insulation application.
The building and renovation industry typically uses PU foams to insulate external walls, interior wall cavities, flooring, crawlspaces, attics, window frames, and door frames. The following years are expected to see increased demand for home furnishings, in addition to the rise in the home furnishing industry. Polyurethane foam manufacturers are continually striving for better business practices in light of issues regarding fossil fuel use and plastics.
Major restraint to the growth of the polyurethane foam market are the stringent environmental regulations formulated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for new and existing plan sites that are engaged in manufacturing of flexible polyurethane foam. The high cost of key feedstock materials, such as toluene diisocyanate, methyl di-p-phenylene, and polymeric isocyanate, which are used for manufacturing polyurethane foams lead to the increased production costs of polyurethane foams. These factors pose a challenge to the polyurethane foams manufacturers in controlling their production.
