WASHINGTON, DC – The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council announced that the 2012 End-Use Market Survey on the Polyurethanes Industry in the United States, Canada and Mexico is now available to order.

This biennial survey of the industry, produced since 1998, provides a breakdown of polyurethane production by type and by major end-use market for each country over a two-year period. In addition, the survey presents historical data on product use, market drivers and issues that affected the industry on both a domestic and global scale. Historic trends are presented along with discussions of the market status in 2012.

An independent third party, IAL Consultants, compiled the survey information. It includes more than 300 pages of information and analysis as well as 150 data tables, plus charts and graphs. Hanne Hirsimäki of IAL consultants will provide an overview of the results of the 2012 End-Use Market Survey during the Closing Session of the 2013 Polyurethanes Technical Conference on Wednesday, September 25 in Phoenix.
