About Thermoplastic Polyurethane

Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is a class of polyurethane (PU) plastics formed when a polyaddition reaction takes place between a diisocyanate and one or more long-chain or short-chain diols. TPU is a renowned malleable engineering plastic and also used as a replacement for hard rubber because of its high elongation and tensile strength. Characteristics such as elasticity and ability to resist oil, grease, solvents, chemicals, and abrasion make TPU popular in a range of applications. It can be easily extruded or injection molded on conventional thermoplastic manufacturing equipment to create solid components for footwear, hose and tube, cable and wire, film and sheet, and other industrial products.

The analysts forecast the global thermoplastic polyurethane market to grow at a CAGR of 6.24% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Thermoplastic Polyurethane Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global thermoplastic polyurethane market: BASF, Covesto, Huntsman International, PolyOne, and Wanhua Chemical Group.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: API, AMERICAN POLYFILM, The Lubrizol Corporation, and Walton Plastics.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is upcoming developments in bio-based products. The interest in bio-based TPUs is rising, owing to their advantageous properties such as biodegradability, low density, recyclability, and cost-effectiveness. These advantages place bio-based TPUs at a commercially competitive position with synthetic TPUs. The industry has observed an opportunity to potentially replace synthetic TPUs with bio-based ones in several applications such as household objects, packaging, automobiles, and furniture.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is rise in demand from automotive industry. Despite the overall slowing down of the demand for automotive, the global automotive industry is now in a better shape than it was five years ago, especially in the US where profits and sales have recovered after the recent economic crisis. In China, the strong growth is consistent. By 2021, the global profits for the automotive OEMs are expected to rise by almost 50%. The increase in profits is expected to come mainly from the growth in the emerging markets like India, China, and Thailand and to a lesser extent from developed markets like the US, Germany, Italy, and Japan.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is presence of moisture can hamper the structure TPU. TPU elastomers are hygroscopic in nature, and hence, they can absorb moisture when exposed to atmospheric humidity. Aromatic PUs undergo polymerization or depolymerization reactions at an equilibrium rate when processed above 355°F. In the presence of water or moisture during the extrusion, the polymeric chains can break down and release amines and carbon dioxide. Failure to remove moisture from PUs can also result in the polymer rearrangement, molecular weight reduction, and substantial loss of physical properties. In addition, the excess moisture in TPU resins can cause voids and other defects in extruded and molded parts, during the extrusion or molding operation.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
