3 Reasons To Take Advantage of Polyurethane

Did you know that the polyurethane market is experiencing explosive growth? The demand for sustainable, versatile materials fuels the development of polyurethane. It’s a super hot solution in many consumer and commercial markets.

Check out these three reasons why polyurethane is so hot right now. As a homeowner, find out how you can take advantage of this trend by using polyurethane concrete leveling to improve your home.

1. Polyurethane is a Sustainable Material

Polyurethane is developed with a bio-based recipe. When compared to other polymers, polyurethane takes less energy to manufacture. Less chemical emissions are produced during manufacturing.

Polyurethane is backwards compatible with many pieces of polymer equipment, like concrete leveling equipment. Cleanliness, efficiency and innovation are just some of the key reasons why polyurethane is a superior material.

2. The Polyurethane Market is On The Rise

According to Global Market Insights the U.S. polyurethanes market is set to grow exponentially. By 2023, the industry will be worth over 12 billion USD.

This dynamic growth is largely in thanks to the US construction industry. In 2015, construction polyurethanes accounted for 30% of the overall polyurethane market.

Other segments of polyurethane forecasted to grow by 4% or more by 2023 include the rigid polyurethanes foam market and the automotive polyurethanes market.

3. Polyurethane is Versatile

The applications for polyurethane are virtually endless. Here’s just a few of the markets and products that use polyurethane:

  • Seats and Upholstery in Cars (Automotive)
  • Shoe Soles (Footwear)
  • Hard Plastic Parts and Components (Electronics & Appliances)

Because polyurethane has so many uses, there’s less wasted materials. Since polyurethane serves the needs of multiple markets, it’s a solid investment for consumers and manufacturers.
