The global wood and wood products industry is immense, with an approximate $450 billion market in 2020, as reported by the Forestry wing of the Food and Agriculture Organization, United Nations! This is huge, simply huge, where the wood coating industry is just a part with an approximation to reach around $11 billion by 2025, as reported under chemical market trends by Reportlinker. And, if we consider the every formation of Polyurethane, the global market is projected to grow from $57.34 billion in 2021 to $81.74 billion in 2028.
The report indicates massive underlying business opportunities, and, naturally, many brands have stepped on the field, where a good number has already been popular. Not all brands make all types of polyurethane products – some are more focused on coatings and adhesives, while others do foams and application materials. However, to remind you, here we present some of the top names manufacturing and supplying polyurethane products.
- General Finishes
- Rust Oleum
- StreetShoe, etc.
What Kind of Polyurethane Should You Use on Floors?
We prefer water-based polyurethane for indoor use. Even if it is high-traffic spots like inside a restaurant, we prefer waterborne solvents, although it requires much more to cover an area during application than the oil-based solvents. But yes, for outdoor floors where UV and color are a big concern, we consider oil-based polyurethanes, moisture-cure urethanes, or aluminum oxide finish based on circumstances.
