30 December 2020

Dublin, Dec. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Toluene Diisocyanate Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020-2025)" report has been added to's offering.

The market for toluene diisocyanate is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 4.5% globally during the forecast period.

Toluene Diisocyanate is a synthetic mixture of the 2,4- and 2,6-isomers is a volatile, colorless to pale yellow liquid that is soluble in many organic solvents. They are mainly used to make polyurethane products, such as rigid and flexible foams, coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers. The growing demand from flexible foam has been driving the market growth.

However, the outbreak of coronavirus across the globe is likely to hinder the growth of the studied market. The growing application of toluene diisocyanate in the coating industry is likely to provide opportunities for the toluene diisocyanate market over the next five years.

Asia-Pacific dominated the market across the globe with the largest consumption from countries such as China and India.

Key Market Trends
