In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the ever-rising population driving the demand for bedding and furniture as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global phosgene market:
The ever-rising population driving the demand for bedding and furniture
The global population was estimated at 7.5 billion in 2015. This number is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. Countries such as China, India, the US, Indonesia, Pakistan, Brazil, Nigeria, Russia, Bangladesh, Mexico, the Philippines, Japan, Ethiopia, Egypt, Vietnam, Germany, Turkey, Iran, Congo, and Thailand are the 20 key contributors, in terms of population.
Factors such as reduced mortality rate, improved medical facilities, increased lifespan, and reduced infant mortality are augmenting the rise in global population. While there are many factors that increase birth rates over a long period, there are several other factors that increase death rates in a short period. Technological advancements have improved medical facilities, which resulted in a reduction in the number of deaths each year. Vaccines can cure various fatal diseases. Factors such as fertility treatments and rising incomes have led to the emergence of large families.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for specialty chemicals, “The increasing population is driving the demand for basic household necessities such as bedding, cushions, pillow, and upholstered furniture, which are made of flexible PU foams. The wide application of phosgene for manufacturing PU foams is expected to drive the global phosgene market during the forecast period.”
