The waterborne polyurethanes market is projected to grow from USD 1.7 billion in 2020 to USD 2.1 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.2%. The demand for waterborne polyurethanes in emerging economies, such as APAC and South America, is increasing owing to the growing construction industry. The volatility in raw material prices is hindering the waterborne polyurethanes market. The demand for waterborne polyurethanes is increasing, owing to the growing demand for innovative and environment friendly products. This increase in awareness around harmful effects of solvent based polyurethanes is provides growth opportunities to the market. On the other hand, sub-optimal performance of waterborne polyurethane is the major challenge for the market.

Solvent-based polyurethanes are made up of liquefying agents that evaporate when comes in contact with oxygen. Solvent-based polyurethanes emit toxic fumes that contain harmful free isocyanates, which can affect the respiratory system and be dangerous for asthma sufferers, children, and the elderly. It also emits VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) into the atmosphere. Breathing VOCs can irritate the eyes, nose and throat, can cause difficulty breathing and nausea, and can damage the central nervous system as well as other organs. Some VOCs can cause cancer. Owing to the harmful effects of these emissions regulatory bodies have pressurized in developing environment-friendly products. Waterborne polyurethanes were developed as a result of the regulatory pressure on harmful chemical emissions and are non-toxic. Waterborne polyurethanes are stable, easy-to-use, and exhibit properties similar to solvent-based systems.
The building & construction industry to be the largest end-use market for waterborne polyurethanes.
Waterborne polyurethanes have been at the epicenter of coating industry, providing greener solutions to modern coating problems. This chemical is polyurethane dispersed in water. This reduces the dependence on solvent-based polyurethanes, providing a better and environment-friendly replacement for existing systems. Advantages like temperature curing and good adhesion further reinforce the case for waterborne polyurethanes. It is frequently used in building and construction applications. Affordability of these versatile materials and the comfort they provide have made polyurethane components part of building & construction industry, globally. In addition, the growing residential and commercial construction activities in emerging economies such as India, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Chile, and others are further driving consumption in this industry.
APAC is projected to be the largest and fastest-growing market for waterborne polyurethanes. The rising population, increased demand for automobiles, growing disposable income, rapid industrialization, and increased urbanization are driving the APAC waterborne polyurethanes market. China is the largest market for waterborne polyurethanes in the region. China is also a major producer and consumer of waterborne polyurethanes in the region as it has a huge manufacturing base. Apart from China, India and South Korea are projected to grow at a decent rate during the forecast period.
The key players in this market include Covestro (Germany), DSM (Netherlands), BASF (Germany), R STAHL (Germany), Chemtura (the US), Dow Inc ., (the US), H.B. Fuller (the US), Wanhua Chemical Corporation(China), SNP Inc., (the US), and KAMSONS Chemical Pvt. Ltd., (India). These players have established a strong foothold in the market by adopting strategies, such as expansion, partnerships, and new product launch.
