The global isocyanates market grew at a CAGR of around 7% during 2014-2019. Isocyanate is an organic compound that includes molecules of the isocyanate group (-NCO) and is manufactured by the reaction of phosgene and amines with water. It is a highly reactive chemical and is produced from raw materials, such as crude oil, propylene, toluene, aniline and benzene. Some of the most common types of isocyanates include aliphatic isocyanate, methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) and toluene diisocyanate (TDI). They are primarily used for the production of polyurethane (PUR)-based foams, paints, coatings, sealants, binders and sealants and find extensive applications across various industries, including construction, automotive, healthcare, furniture and aerospace.
Significant growth in the automotive industry, along with rapid industrialization across the globe, especially in the emerging economies, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, widespread adoption of isocyanate-based products in the construction industry is also providing a boost to the market growth. Isocyanates exhibit excellent insulation properties, owing to which they are used in the form of rigid PU foams for insulating panels and gap fillers in the spaces around doors and windows. They are also used on the exterior components of the automobiles to minimize the overall vehicular weight and improve the fuel-efficiency. Various advancements, such as the development of bio-based variants, are acting as another growth-inducing factor. With the rising environmental consciousness among the masses, there is an increasing preference for green polyurethanes and renewable isocyanates in place of crude oil-based products. This, along with the implementation of favorable government policies promoting the construction of energy-efficient structures, is projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
