"One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the demand for polyurethane from the automotive industry,” says a senior analyst for the Materials industry at Technavio. Numerous polyurethane products are used in the automotive sector for manufacturing flexible foam, rigid foam, adhesives, sealants, and coatings. This results in an increased demand for TDI as it is used as an intermediate raw material to produce polyurethane products. Polyurethanes are also used in making suspension components, tire covers, door coverings, roof linings, bumpers, seats, bed liners, and instrument panels. With the growing sales volume of passenger and light commercial vehicles, the demand for polyurethane adhesives to bond materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, composites, and steel is also increasing. As the markets recover Technavio expects the toluene diisocyanate market size to grow by 620.01 thousand MT during the period 2020-2024.
