Selected Value Chain Analysis done in the full report
- The Value chain of Polyurethane Elastomers talks about the major steps involved in manufacturing raw materials and then imbibing them with pre polymers related polyurethane to polymerize them into polyurethane elastomers. The value chain starts off with refining crude oil to transform it into MDI (Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate)/TDI (Toluene Diisocyanate), and polyols, using various refining processes.
- Most of the Polyurethane Elastomer manufacturers initiate their integration into the value chain from purchasing raw materials and then polymerizing them into polyurethane elastomers, but a few of them like BASF, integrates into the value chain from the processing of raw materials such as polyether polyols and TDI/MDI polyester.
- All Polyurethane Elastomer manufacturers in the marketplace have their own, in-house polymerization facilities used to convert these raw materials into Polyurethane Elastomers.
- This forms the main reason why many of the manufacturers in the marketplace have their own units for the production of Polyurethane Elastomers.
- Value chain of Polyurethane Elastomers initially starts from procuring raw material which includes MDI (Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate)/TDI (Toluene Diisocyanate), and polyols. These raw materials and their processing charges add value to the end product.
