The organic compound with formula formulae CH3C6H3(NCO)2 is known as toluene diisocyanate and it is a natural concoction compound used as crude material for the creation of the polyurethane items. Toluene diisocyanate is also used to increase octane in gasoline. Raw materials used in production of toluene diisocyanate including aniline, toluene, crude oil, and propylene. In addition, it is largely utilized in assembling of furniture, beds, and sleeping cushions with less thickness as they are considered as filling and protective materials. Toluene diisocyanate based polyurethane foam offers comfort feature to being pillows and mattresses. It also offers cushion property coupled with various other physical properties including low odor, lightweight, resiliency, and others.
Increasing adoption of polyurethane by manufacturers in the production of sofas, furniture, bed, and bedding resulting in the growing demand for toluene diisocyanate across the globe. This is the main factor for high growth of the target product across the globe. In addition, increasing demand for polyurethane among many industries across the globe is another reason driving growth of the target market.
Growing demand for flexible polyurethane foams across the globe and rising adoption of flexible polyurethane foams in various applications resulting in rising demand for toluene diisocyanate across various countries. In addition, increasing demand for comfortable seating in automobiles resulting in growing adoption of toluene diisocyanate across the globe. these are some other factors support for high growth of the toluene diisocyanate in many countries.
Furthermore, rapid adoption of toluene diisocyanate in several applications such as transportation, coatings, furniture, rigid foams, elastomers, adhesives, and sealants. Rising production of luxurious automobiles and expanding automobile industry in developed and developing countries. These are among other reasons for high growth of the target market.
Moreover, rising consumer demand for bedding, furniture, mattress, and others across the globe and increasing toluene diisocyanate use in many applications by manufacturers. These are some other reasons to support growth of the toluene diisocyanate in the upcoming years.
However, changing raw materials prices across the globe is the main reason that may hamper growth of the target product to a certain extent.
High demand for luxurious cars and high adoption of luxurious bed, mattresses, and furniture in countries such as Canada, US, China, Australia, Japan, and India in the North America and Asia Pacific regions will register major growth in the global market. In addition, rising production of rigid foams, polyurethane foam, and others and increasing toluene diisocyanate suppliers in many countries in the Asia Pacific and North America regions. An increasing number of furniture manufacturers and growing popularity of beds and furniture in countries such as UK, Russia, France, Italy, Germany, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil, and Israel in Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America regions. In addition, increasing penetration of a variety of beds and mattresses coupled with shapes, sizes, colors, designs, patterns in countries in the Middle East & Africa, Europe, and Latin America regions.
Prominent players operating in the global toluene diisocyanate market include, BASF, Covestro, Mitsui, Borsodchem, Hanwha Chemical, Vencorex, GNFC, OCI, Tosoh, Cangzhou Dahua, Gansu Yinguang, Juli Fine Chemical and Fujian Southeast Electrochemical.
