The global methylene diphenyl di-isocyanate market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.15% during the forecast period. Methylene diphenyl di-isocyanate (MDI) is a member of the di-isocyanate family associated with polyurethane chemistry.
Increasing Utilization of Polyurethane Foam for Insulations
MDI is primarily used in production of rigid polyurethane foams, which are used as insulating materials in homes, refrigerators, etc. Insulating foams made by MDI can help consumer save their heating and cooling costs. The building industry is by far the largest consumer of rigid and spray polyurethane foam. With the increasing number of building codes that promote energy-efficient structures, home builders and consumers are gradually moving toward building strategies that deliver performance and save energy in the long run. According to the department of energy, heating and cooling costs account for 48% of the energy use in a typical US home. Spray polyurethanes are important solutions in improving a home's energy efficiency, along with other insulating foams, such as EPS, XPS, etc.
Rigid Foam is expected to have the Highest Growth
By application, the rigid foam segment of the market studied occupied the largest share, of about 35%, in 2017. 4,4'-MDI is the most widely used isomer among the three isomers of MDI, with major application as a primary feedstock for the production of rigid PU (PU) foams. These foams have good thermal insulation properties and are used in the manufacturing of freezers and refrigerators, and in building and automotive applications. PU rigid insulation foams are a major part of the PU industry, representing nearly 20% of the market or more than 1.5 million metric ton of the demand. Rigid PU foam is the leading material used to insulate major appliances, like refrigerators, freezers, hot water heaters, and vending machines. Rigid PU foam is an essential and cost-effective material that can be used to meet the required energy ratings in consumer refrigerators and freezers.
China to Dominate the Market
China is the world's largest producer and consumer of polyurethane products. China's demand for polyurethane products accounts for about 45% of global demand, and is expected to maintain a growth rate of around 10% over the next couple years, with an increase in share to 55% in global demand for polyurethane products, in 2017. MDI is primarily used for polyurethane in China. The government of China views its automotive industry, including the auto parts sector, as one of the country's strongest industries. China continues to be the world's largest automotive market, with sales of over 28 million units in 2016, a year-on-year growth of 9% from 2015. The Chinese government expects that the country's automobile output will reach 30 million units by 2020, and 35 million by 2025. Polyurethanes are widely used in car manufacturing, offering real benefits in terms of comfort, protection, and energy conservation. The aforementioned factors are expected to have a significant impact on the growth of the market.
Key Developments in the Market
April 2017: The governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards, and Zengtai Liao, Chairman and CEO of Wanhua Chemical Group Co. Ltd, announced that the company will develop a chemical manufacturing complex in the state, with an investment of USD 1.12 billion, leading to a specific site selection later in 2017. Wanhua produces around 1.8 million tons/year of MDI or about 24% of the world's total capacity.
February 2017: Takht-e-Jamshid Petrochemical Complex and the second phase of Karoun Petrochemical Company (KRNPC) was officially inaugurated on Feb 6, 2017, in Mahshahr, Special Petrochemical Economic Zone in the Khuzestan Province, by the first Vice President Es'haq Jahangiri.
February 2017: The Karoun project, jointly implemented by Iranian companies and the Swedish engineering group, Chematur Engineering AB, at a cost of USD 375 million, will produce around 40,000 tons of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) and toluene diisocyanate (TDI) per year.
