Global Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Market Analysis, Growth, Trends & Forecast 2018-2023 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Market - Segmented by Application, End-user Industry and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2018 - 2023)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market is expected to witness a CAGR of 3.36% during the forecast period, 2018-2023.

TPU belongs to a class of thermoplastic elastomers that are long-chain linear polymers, which allow the polyurethane to be melted to form parts and then the parts are solidified. The usage of TPU in medical applications is consistently increasing, owing to its high-performance characteristics, resistance to chemicals and oils, improved mechanical properties, and enhanced durability. Melt-processable polyurethanes are used to make catheters, such as central-venous access catheters, over-the-needle IV catheters and multi-lumen catheters.

TPUs can be made into fine threads, and can be combined with nylon to make more lightweight, stretchable garments. Because of these techniques, manufacturers can make a broad range of foot wear. Furthermore, TPU has been considered as an efficient replacement of rubber and other resins used in footwear industry, owing to its high elasticity & resilience, high tensile strength, and high tear strength compared to the traditionally used rubber. Various grades of TPU can provide a range of hardness to deliver the required amount of friction and flexibility.

The construction sector in India is growing at higher rate with urbanization projects and new construction activities, such as bridges, dams, roads, railways (metro rails), urban infrastructures, buildings, etc. Around 100% FDI in the construction sector has also helped the industry to grow, which is expected to grow further at higher rate, with increasing population, during the forecast period. The housing sector has witnessed a healthy growth in the near past.
