The global isocyanates market has experienced significant growth in recent years due to the increasing demand for polyurethane foam in various applications such as construction, automotive, and furniture. Isocyanates are a class of organic compounds that contain a reactive isocyanate group, -N=C=O. They are commonly used in the production of polyurethane foams, coatings, adhesives, and elastomers. Isocyanates are also used in the manufacture of many other products such as paints, varnishes, and sealants. They are widely used in many industries such as automotive, construction, and furniture.

The demand for isocyanates is expected to continue to grow in the coming years due to the increasing demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles, which require the use of polyurethane foams. The construction industry is also expected to drive the demand for isocyanates as the demand for energy-efficient buildings continues to grow. However, the isocyanates market faces challenges due to the health hazards associated with their use. Exposure to isocyanates can cause respiratory problems, skin irritation, and other health issues. As a result, regulations on the use of isocyanates are becoming stricter, which may impact the growth of the market in the future.
