Below are the key development related to Rigid Polyurethane Foams Market in 2020 and 2021.

June 2021: Philips Issues a Recall Notification* to Mitigate Potential Health Risks Related to the Sound Abatement Foam Component in Certain Sleep and Respiratory Care Devices. Source January 2021: Manufacturer expands into Italy with £6.1m acquisition. The Vita Group, a provider of polyurethane foam, has acquired Italian foam manufacturer IMPE SpA – a wholly owned subsidiary of Naples-based Natuzzi – in a £6.1m deal. Vita, which employs 2,700 people across Europe and is headquarters in Middleton, Manchester, expects the deal to complete in the first quarter of 2021. It will enable the business to gain an important foothold in Italy, which is the second largest furniture producing country in Europe and one of its largest furniture exporters. The Naples site, which will be known as Vita Italy, will manufacture value-added and differentiated polyurethane foam for the Italian furniture and bedding industry, as well as expanding the group’s trade links with the Americas and North Africa. The site, which has production capabilities of 20,000 tonnes per annum, will enable Vita to release current production in Hungary and Romania to concentrate on further expansion in Eastern Europe and the Balkans region. The acquisition will also further strengthen its long-standing partnership with world-leading furniture manufacturer Natuzzi. In addition to purchasing the foam plant in Naples, The Vita Group will continue to supply Natuzzi with high quality materials, including new innovative foams for use across its global furniture portfolio. Source February 2020: Huntsman Completes the Acquisition of Icynene-Lapolla, Expanding its Downstream Footprint in Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation. Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) announced that it has completed the acquisition of Icynene-Lapolla, a leading North American manufacturer and distributor of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation systems for residential and commercial applications. Huntsman acquired the business from an affiliate of FFL Partners, LLC, for $350 million, subject to customary closing adjustments, in an all-cash transaction funded from available liquidity. The acquisition of Icynene-Lapolla is aligned with Huntsmans strategy of growing its downstream polyurethanes business. The combination of Icynene-Lapolla with Demilec, the SPF business Huntsman acquired in 2018, will create the worlds leading supplier of spray foam products used to insulate commercial and residential structures. The acquisition will further strengthen our portfolio of leading energy-saving insulation applications and technologies, providing customers with an unmatched product offering. Further, it will accelerate the globalization of the combined SPF business by leveraging Huntsmans extensive international network of systems houses. The acquisition will generate substantial synergies as a result of Huntsmans ability to pull through significant volumes of polyols and lower margin upstream polymeric MDI into the higher margin and growing specialized SPF systems. Source February 2020: Mattress foam giants in Radnor and NJ close $850M merger after reaching deal with FTC. An $850 million merger between the country’s largest mattress foam suppliers closed Tuesday, four days after the companies reached an agreement with federal regulators to resolve concerns that the deal would harm competition and drive up prices in the market. The companies, Radnor-based FXI and Red Bank, New Jersey-based Innocor, said they will sell off three regional manufacturing plants to settle a complaint filed by the Federal Trade Commission over the deal. Both firms are private-equity owned and manufacture low-density polyurethane foam used in mattresses, furniture and vehicles. Source
