“Increasing use of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) in the automotive industry is a prime factor for the growth of the thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market across the globe.”

The thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market is projected to reach USD 2.48 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2016 to 2021, in terms of value. Increased investments in new automotive manufacturing plants across the globe are fueling the growth of the thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market as thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is being increasingly used in manufacturing interior and exterior components, such as panels for inner parts of hoods of automobiles (hoodliners), engine parts, and impact absorbers, among others.

Higher costs of thermoplastic polyurethane as compared to conventional plastics, such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyurethane, and others is expected to restraint the growth of the thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market between 2016 and 2021.

“Among types, the polycaprolactone segment of the thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021.”

Among types, the polycaprolactone segment of the thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of volume and value during the forecast period, 2016 to 2021. Polycaprolactone possesses inherent toughness and resistance of polyester-based thermoplastic polyurethanes, combined with low temperature performance and relatively high resistance to hydrolysis, thereby enabling use of polycaprolactone in hydraulic and pneumatic seal applications.

“Increasing demand for thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) from varied end-use industries is the major driver for the growth of the Asia-Pacific thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market.”

The Asia-Pacific thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume. High economic growth rate, increase in the number of manufacturing industries, availability of cheap labor, increase in foreign investments, and rise in use of thermoplastic polyurethane across automotive, engineering, and footwear applications are some of the major factors expected to fuel the growth of the Asia-Pacific thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market.

Countries, such as China, South Korea, Japan, and India, which are major hubs for production of automotive, are expected to drive the growth of the Asia-Pacific thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market during the forecast period.
