Thermoplastic Polyurethane Market – Market Overview

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) industry is witnessing substantial growth on account of its properties such as low weight, resistance to heat, abrasion and excellent low temperature flexibility which in turn is used in various end use industries such as automotive, medical and building & construction. The increasing application scope such as pipe & hoses, footwear and wire & cable is also anticipated to drive the Thermoplastic Polyurethane demand over the forecast period.

Different types of Thermoplastic Polyurethane Market such as polyester, polyether and polycaprolactone and others. The demand for polyester is expected to take steep growth on account of increasing number of application such as automotive, building & construction and engineering equipment’s and possess properties such as high tear resistance and heat-oil resistance compared to polyether Thermoplastic Polyurethane. Thermoplastic Polyurethane is elastomer is extensively used in automotive industry owing to rising demand of lightweight components to increase fuel efficiency. Automotive end use industry segment is flourishing market in terms of value and volume as TPU is substituting rubber and PVC to give better performance, UV resistance and help in reducing the overall weight of vehicle. Due to low temperature stability and high abrasion resistance TPU is used in gear knobs, interior door handle and seating cushions. Moreover, high dielectric strength and flame resistance makes TPU extensively used in wire & cables. Currently, OEM’s in automotive industry are collaborating with TPU manufacturer to develop modern and advanced TPU in order to meet new application requirements. High investment in research of new grades of TPU are impacting the global TPU market.

Additionally, footwear is major consumer of Thermoplastic Polyurethane owing to high resilience, tensile and tear strength. The ability of TPU to take any form of colour has made a preferred choice in footwear and automotive industry. Due to upcoming events such as Olympics, marathons and FIFA world cup may increase the demand of TPU in footwear industry as it is efficient material for manufacturing sportwear and shoes. However, intense competition among compounding plastic components manufacturer and rise in raw material cost of TPU are expected to restraint the market growth over the forecast period.

The Global Thermoplastic Polyurethane Market is dominated by Asia Pacific region owing to presence of major end use industries such as footwear, automotive coupled with skilled labor. Changing trend of replacing many metal parts in automotive with lightweight components in order to improve fuel efficiency and mechanical performance is expected to complement product penetration. China witnessed strong growth owing to relocation of key players in this market to capture huge market share with favourable government policies. Moreover, countries like Japan, India and South Korea are leading countries in automotive industries which in turn triggered the Global TPU Market in these countries. Europe is second largest automotive coating market followed by North America. Strong consolidation and favourable economic conditions are likely to boost the product penetration in regional market. U.S. market is exhibiting enormous growth potential on account of stringent environmental regulation regarding usage of compounding plastics over TPU would benefit the Thermoplastic Polyurethane Market.
