Polyester-based TPU to Hold the Lion’s Share

Based on type, the thermoplastic polyurethane (tpu) market is segmented into polyester, polyether, polycaprolactone, and others. Polyester-based TPU is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period due to its adoption in applications, which require resistance to oils, fuels, and water.

Based on application, the market is classified into automotive, construction, engineering, footwear, hose & tubing, wire & cable, and others.
Geographically, the market is classified into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Report Coverage-

The report consists of cumulative information on the market and relative new advances in the industry. Furthermore, the report consists of knowledge about the regional growth, collaborations, drivers and restraining factors, new product launches, and the overall impact of COVID-19 on the market.

Drivers & Restraints-

Development of Bio-based Polymers to Incite Growth

The usage of thermoplastic polyurethane will be fueled by the growing development of bio-based polymers, in turn, uplifting the TPU market growth. Chlorinated plastic can leach hazardous chemicals into the soil, leaking groundwater and other nearby water sources. Humans and animals may suffer serious health consequences as a result of this. Furthermore, countries have established several rules requiring the use of environmentally friendly polymers. TPU has abrasion resistance, grease resistance, and excellent mechanical characteristics in addition to being biodegradable. TPUs are also regarded as environmentally friendly by the U.S. National Library of Medicine since they are produced utilizing either degradable chain extenders or biodegradable chain extenders.
However, the high manufacturing costs may hinder the market growth.
