By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Europe Polyurethanes Market Segmented by Application, Industry and Geography Trends and Forecasts (2015-2020)” report to their offering.

Polyurethane is widely used for construction in all types of infrastructure projects. Its most important application, however, is building insulation: polyurethane foams have excellent insulation qualities. In buildings, they reduce fuel costs and help conserve energy. Buildings consume 40 per cent of global energy, and create more than one third of greenhouse gas emissions. It is estimated that worldwide insulation of buildings to optimal standards could reduce global CO2 emissions by 20 per cent.

Foam made of polyurethane provides high insulation value, and helps cut down on space requirements for walls and roofs; this helps maximize building volume. This is especially important when an existing building is being renovated to comply with better energy efficiency standards: rigid polyurethane spray foam is a particularly versatile and cost-effective tool to upgrade buildings insulation performance. Polyurethane is also appreciated by the construction industry for its durability.

The Global Polyurethane market is segmented by Application (Foams-Rigid and Flexible, Adhesives and Sealants, Coatings, Elastomers, and others), by industry (Furniture and Interiors, Constructions, Automotive and others), by geography (U.K, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and other countries). The Key players in the market are BASF SE, Bayer, Dow Chemicals, Nippon Polyurethane Industry, Chemtura Corp.
