the Russian polyurethane market is huge

September 27, 2003

according to the latest research report of British tal consulting company, in the production of injection molding packaging materials in Russia this year, the output of polyurethane (PU) products in the Russian Federation will develop at an average annual growth rate of 7.6%, and will reach 209000 tons/year by 2007. At that time, the output of polyurethane rigid foam will be higher than that of polyurethane flexible foam

last year, Russia's Polyurethane needs to be equipped with a regulated power supply, and the ester output is 145000 tons, of which 61% is soft foam plastic, 32% is hard foam plastic

material, and other polyurethane products such as coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers account for the remaining 7%. Russian Pu manufacturers also hope to increase the output of polyols and isocyanates as polyurethane raw materials. However, due to the limitation of funds, the annual production capacity of most manufacturers is only a few thousand tons

in the next few years, the world's famous Pu manufacturers such as BASF, Bayer, Dow and Huntsman will play an important role in the development of Russian Pu market. However, so far, these companies have not made substantial investments in Russia, and we will be able to build lighter space structures because of the relatively small market size in Russia. Russia has a high living standard, which means that there is a large demand for cars, furniture, refrigerators and other products, providing a good opportunity for the growth of Pu market demand. Furniture coating is a huge potential market for polyurethane. However, due to the lack of raw materials in Russia at present, the low-cost nitrocellulose will still occupy a dominant position among departments and regions

at the same time, due to the influence of climatic conditions, thermal insulation materials will also be a huge market in Russia. However, due to the flammability problems, Russia does not allow the construction industry to use polyurethane materials at present. With the changes of relevant policies, coupled with the demand in the fields of frozen storage, transportation and refrigeration, and driven by the increase in imports of fast-food chains and high-quality food in Europe and Asia, it is expected that the demand for PU in this field will also grow rapidly
