Opportunity: Stringent regulations in use of antibiotics in animal:

New regulations by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which took effect on January 1, 2017, banned the addition of antibiotics to feed to promote the growth of livestock and poultry. Also, as the European Union banned the use of antibiotics in 2006, it was necessary to explore alternatives. Hence, such stringent regulations are expected to provide opportunities for butyric acid as an alternative for antibiotics in animal feed.


By type, rigid foam is estimated to be the leading segment of polyurethane foam from 2021 to 2026.

By type, rigid foam is estimated to dominate the polyurethane foam market, globally, in terms of value. Factors, such as reduced energy costs, application as insulating foams and structural foams in commercial and residential constructions, as well as use of rigid foams for insulations in various electrical appliances such as water heaters, refrigerators, coolers, vending machines, and freezers, are expected to propel the demand for rigid foams in global polyurethane foam market.


Asia Pacific regional segment accounted for the largest share in the Polyurethane Foam market:
