Polyeurathanes are mainly manufactured by reacting isocynates with polyols and one of the essential isocyanates utilized for production are methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) and toluene diisocyanate (TDI). Polyurethane occurs in two major types that are polyurethane elastomers and polyurethane foams. Foams can be divided into rigid and flexible and these foams consists of applications in number of  industries such as bedding, automotive and furniture, thus creating product demand. MDI chemicals are used in certain commercial and consumer applications such as transportation products, rubber& plastic products, paints & coatings, lubricants, fuel additives and greases.

Market Dynamics

The methylene diphenyl diisocyanate market is driven by several major factors such as rising use in polyeurathane foam production and its unique properties and functional versatilities. Moreover, the increasing demand for polyeurathane products among different end-use industries  such as furniture, bedding, automotive, and construction. As methylene diphenyl diisocyanate is used as one of the major raw material in manufacturing of polyeurathane products, therefore is likely to fuel the growth of the market.

However, extreme exposure of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate can be dangerous and cause skin & respiratory tract irritation, asthma and dermatitis are some of the restraining factors hampering the growth of the market.

Market Classification and Overview

The global methylene diphenyl diisocyanate market is segmented into application, end-user, region.

On the basis of application, the market is segmented into rigid foam, flexible foam, coatings, elastomers, adhesives & sealants and others.

Based on the end-user, the market is segmented into construction, furniture & interiors, electronics & appliances, automotive, footwear and others.

Regional Overview

Geographically, the global methylene diphenyl diisocyanate market is bifurcated into four regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest region during the forecast period 2018-2026, owing to the boom in demand in emerging economies such as China and India. The increasing demand for methylene diphenyl diisocyanate in China is due to the availability of low cost of raw material labor and land. Moreover, increasing end user industries such as electronics, construction, automotive, is also expected to fuel the growth of the market.

North America is expected to witness a high growth increasing demand for the polyeurathane industry. Moreover, increasing use of isocynate in the automobile, construction, furniture, and electronics industries is further propelling the growth of the market in this region.

Europe is expected to witness a healthy growth during the forecasted period owing to the strong industrial base and presence of huge players demand the methylene diphenyl diisocyanate. Additionally, the LAMEA is witnessing a steady growth due to less industry growth and poor economic condition.
