Wednesday, 21 October 2009

The production of polyurethane in Mexico increased at an average annual rate of 9.6 % over the past two years, partly due to increased domestic demand.

Research conducted on behalf of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), shows that overall production of polyurethane in NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) declined by 6.7 % per year during the past two years. The figure reflects a 7.7 % annual decline in U.S. markets and 10.8 % decline in Canada, while Mexico has shown positive growth for the third consecutive survey. The production of polyurethane in Mexico increased at an average annual rate of 9.6 % over the past two years, partly due to increased domestic demand. Signs of growth in the polyurethane industry included continued increases in spray polyurethane foam demand for residential and industrial applications. The demand for low-VOC and high-performance coatings related to product substitutions made the decline in the production of coatings, adhesives, sealants and TPU less severe.
