Methyldiphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) is a raw material that is used to produce polyurethanes. It is an aromatic diisocyanate that reacts with polyols in polyurethane manufacturing. It is an excellent thermal insulator and is used as an essential component in freezers and refrigerators worldwide. It is also used as an industrial-strength adhesive, which is available to end consumers as various high-strength bottled glue preparations. It is extensively available in two different forms, namely pure MDI and polymeric MDI (PMDI). Pure MDI is widely used in manufacturing polyurethane products like coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE), including paints, glues, and weather-resistant materials. On the other hand, polymeric MDI is a highly versatile product used to produce rigid, flexible, semi-rigid, polyisocyanurate, and thermoset foams. MDI is used across various end user industries, such as construction, automotive, furniture and interiors, electronics and appliances, and footwear.
The global market is majorly driven by significant growth in end user industries. In line with this, the increasing demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles is positively influencing the demand for polyurethane foams, thereby accelerating the uptake of MDI across the globe. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of polymer foams for insulation purposes in the construction industry is catalyzing the market growth. Apart from this, the growing awareness regarding sustainability is propelling the demand for green building materials, which, in turn, is providing a boost to the market. Besides this, the escalating preference for phosgene-free MDI production process is offering numerous lucrative growth opportunities for key market players on the global level, thereby creating a positive outlook for the market.
