Report ID: GMI4465
Microcellular Polyurethane Foam Market size is expected to grow steadily within the forecast timespan. The product is produced by dissolving gases into the polymer under high pressure conditions. It offers excellent compression-set resistance and maintain flexibility in extreme conditions. It is highly resilient, chemical & moisture resistant and efficiently dissipates stress. It provides vibration isolation at low frequencies & large amplitudes and noise isolation at high frequencies. The product is widely used for sealing, gasketing, cushioning, weatherproofing and vibration control applications.
The microcellular polyurethane foam market growth will be driven by rising demand from electronics industry. Speciality polyurethane foam is used in electrical enclosures, electronic gasketing, cellular phones, etc. Rising number of tech-savvy population, technological advancements, increasing spending propensity and evolving consumer interests are likely to drive the demand of cellular phones in upcoming years. Electronic devices and equipment are generally prone to fluid & moisture ingress, dirt, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and other contaminants. Hence, gasketing is necessary to protect the devices and equipment while ensuring operational efficiency. Rising need to maintain the performance of these devices will catapult microcellular polyurethane foam demand in upcoming years. This will in turn spur the market growth by 2025.
The microcellular polyurethane foam is widely used in various aerospace applications such as seating components, cabin interiors, structural materials, etc. The product acts as a better substitute for rubber while offering weight reduction, space savings and improved durability. Moreover, it offers high load bearing capability and excellent load-deflection characteristics. Increasing demand of air travel coupled with huge backlog orders are going to boost aircraft manufacturing in upcoming years. The product exhibits promising future trends due to increasing importance of weight reduction and fuel efficiency optimization. These aforementioned trends will augment the market growth within the forecast time span.
Microcellular polyurethane foam is widely used in automotive industry for instrument panels, automotive gaskets, bumpers, etc. It offers significant weight reduction thereby improving fuel efficiency and environmental performance. Continuous research and development activities supported by huge investments will characterize automobile production in future. Various stringent regulations such as Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFÉ) and EU 2019/631 to control the CO2 emission levels will compel manufacturers to opt materials contributing in weight reduction. This will facilitate the growth of product market by 2025. However, market may be negatively influenced by fluctuations in the prices of raw materials thereby leading to market growth slowdown in upcoming years.
The global microcellular polyurethane foam market is segmented on the basis of product type and end-user industry. Based on product, the market is segmented into low density foam and high density foam. Based on end-user industry, the market is bifurcated into electronics, aerospace, automotive, medical and others.
Asia Pacific will be one of the key regions in microcellular polyurethane foam market share. The strong growth in this region will be attributable to rising demand from automotive and electronics sectors. Countries such as China, India and Japan are some of the leading countries in terms of worldwide automotive production. Growing concerns regarding CO2 emission levels & fuel economy in conjunction with favorable government policies & technological progressions are bound to transform regional automotive industry in upcoming years. Such trends will support the market growth by 2025. Additionally, Asia Pacific electronics industry is flourishing owing to rising middle-class population and disposable income levels. Declining prices of electronic products, technology transitions and adoption of high-end electronic devices will accelerate the pace of regional electronics sector in near future. North America and Europe will clutch considerable share in the market by 2025. North America accounted for more than half of the global aerospace market size in 2017. In the same year, France, United Kingdom and Germany collectively accounted for over 20% of worldwide aerospace market. Huge government investments and innovation trends will propel aerospace manufacturing in both of these regions. Such trends will trigger the market growth in upcoming years.
