The analysts forecast the Global Polyurethane Foam market to grow at a CAGR of 7.03 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand from Bedding & Furniture and Construction industries.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: Green polyurethane foams are the modified hybrid polyurethane foams manufactured without using hazardous isocyanates in the production process. This reduces the chances of health hazards such as irritation in the skin caused by polyurethane foams. Additionally, the green polyurethane foams use bio-based polyols, which are more eco-friendly in nature, instead of petroleum-based polyols. These green polyurethane foams are rapidly gaining popularity and acceptance among the end-users.
According to the report, the increasing demand from the Bedding and Furniture and Construction industries is one of the major factors that drive the growth of the market. It is estimated that the global demand for mattresses will reach approximately US$33 billion in 2018.
