$2.48 Billion Thermoplastic Polyurethane Market by Type, End-Use Industry & Region - Global Forecast to 2021 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Thermoplastic Polyurethane Market - Global Forecast to 2021" report to their offering.

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 restrain the growth of the thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market between 2016 and 2021.

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.
