Methylene Diphenyl Di-isocyanate Market

Methylene Diphenyl Di-isocyanate Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 - 2027

Market Overview

Introduction: Methylene Diphenyl Di-isocyanate Market

Methylene diphenyl di-isocyanate is also known as aromatic di-isocyanate and commonly abbreviated as MDI. In the manufacturing of methylene diphenyl di-isocyanate, primarily formaldehyde reacts with aniline by using hydrochloric acid as a catalyst to form diamine which on further treatment with phosgene forms a mixture of isocynate, which on further distillation MDI is obtained. Methylene diphenyl di-isocyanate has its key application in rigid polyurethane foams which are widely used as insulation in electronic appliances, buildings and automotive seating applications. Along with this Methylene diphenyl di-isocyanate is used in the production of adhesives & sealants, coatings, elastomers. On the basis of safety, methylene diphenyl di-isocyanate is the least hazardous chemicals in the group of available isocyanates and having low vapour pressure which reduces its hazards while handling in comparison to other isocynanates such as toluene di-isocyanate and others.

The growing application of nanotechnology, in the global methylene diphenyl di-isocyanate industry, and the continuous development in solar control glass for glazing uses in tropical regions, are expected to offer numerous opportunities that will propel the market growth in the near future.
