Used in everything from shoes to furniture, polyurethane is a part of our everyday lives. Recently, a new campaign was launched in Washington, DC, that celebrates 75 years of innovation in the polyurethane sector. Known as “Versatile. Durable. Incredible. Polyurethane,” the campaign will include its own website and social media presence as well as event marketing to illustrate polyurethane’s impact on our lives.
Thanks to innovations such as polymer foam, an increasingly popular spray foam sealing agent, the industry continues to make its global presence known. With an annual growth rate of 5.8 percent, the spray foam market represents one of the fastest-growing manufacturing industries. By 2019, the market is expected to reach 452 kilotons, the highest predicted rate of consumption of any manufacturing material over the next five years.
