WASHINGTON (Dec. 12, 10:50 a.m. ET) — The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) is offering end-use data for sale, in three volumes, focused on individual segments of the polyurethanes value chain.

The data offer an assessment of 2010 polyurethane production by end-use for the US, Canada and Mexico specific to flexible foam; rigid foam; and coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers (CASE), binders, reaction injection molding (RIM), and other products.

These three volumes are part of the CPI’s 2010 End-Use Market Survey, based on data collected by IAL Consultants.

Each market segment data set —Volume 2: Flexible Foams, Volume 3: Rigid Foams, and Volume 4: CASE, Binders, RIM, costs $500 for CPI members and $750 for non-members.

“The 2010 End-Use Survey data delves into specific segments of the broader polyurethanes market between 2008 and 2010, providing valuable insight into where the industry has been and in what direction it is moving,” said Lee Salamone, senior director of CPI. “The individual volumes are essential reading for polyurethane executives and professionals, as well as a highly desirable tool for any business that touches specific end-use segments of the polyurethanes market.”

These volumes provide detailed analysis of the end-use market for each PU type, including a breakdown of issues and trends. For example, the flexible foams volume is nearly 250 pages, covering raw material demand in North America, total production of the primary types of flexible foam, and analysis and overview of four major end-use areas — automotive, furniture and bedding, construction, and insulated appliances.
