“Among end-use industries, the footwear segment led the TPU market, in terms of volume.”
TPU is used in various end-use industries, such as footwear, engineering, building & construction, automotive, hose & tubing, wires & cables, and medical. These are the main end-use industries that have been considered in this report on the TPU market. In terms of volume, the footwear end-use industry segment led the TPU market. It was followed by the engineering, wires & cables, automotive, building & construction, hose & tubing, and medical segments. The footwear end-use industry is largely influenced by consumer trends and fashions. Rising demand for fancy and trendy comfortable footwear among all age groups is a key factor driving the growth of the footwear industry across the globe, which, in turn, is driving the TPU market. The medical end-use industry segment of the TPU market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between during forecast period, in terms of both, value as well as volume.
“Among types, the polyester segment led the TPU market”
On the basis of type, the TPU market has been classified into polyester, polyether, and polycaprolactone. The polyester type segment led the TPU market, in terms of value as well as volume. It was followed by the polyether and polycaprolactone type segments. Polyester-based TPU possesses stronger cut and tear resistance combined with better oil and heat resistance properties than polyether-based TPU. In addition, cost of polyester-based TPU is lower in comparison to polyether-based TPU. All these factors are expected to drive the growth of the polyester type segment of the TPU market during forecast period.
The key players in the TPU market are BASF Polyurethanes (Germany), The Lubrizol Corporation (U.S.), Covestro AG (Germany), Huntsman Corporation (U.S.), and Wanhua Chemical Group Co., Ltd. (China), among others.
