Polyurethanes are a type of polymer that is produced by reacting isocyanates with polyols. They are widely utilized in various applications such as insulation, adhesives, coatings, and flexible and rigid foams. Polyurethanes are renowned for their durability, versatility, and resistance to wear and tear. They can be tailored to have a wide range of properties, varying from soft and flexible to hard and rigid, depending on the specific application. In addition, polyurethanes are employed in the medical industry for implants, wound dressings, and drug delivery systems. Polyurethanes can be classified as either thermoplastic or thermosetting, depending on the type of reaction employed in their formation. The polyurethanes in Europe market is expected to increase by USD 5.9 billion, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1% from 2023 to 2029, according to the latest edition of the Polyurethanes Market in Europe Report.
