Grand View Research, Inc. – Market Research And Consulting.
According to new report by Grand View Research, The Global Polyurethane (PU) Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7% from 2016 to 2025 and High demand for lightweight & durable materials from end-use industries has driven growth in recent years.

The global polyurethane (PU) market is anticipated to reach USD 105.2 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. urethane polymers are increasingly being utilized to address consumer needs in health, convenience and sustainability by means of applications such as adhesives, coatings, and insulation materials among others.

Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPUs) are widely utilized in automotive applications owing to their ability to integrate characteristics of both plastics & rubbers at a lower weight as compared to metal & other plastic materials. Innovative TPUs containing silicone diol with micro-structured surfaces are also being used as self-cleaning surfaces for marine vessels.

Flexible PU foams remained the dominant product with about 27% volume share in 2015. The development of innovative, flexible foams containing latent aldehydes & displaying improved compression set have also introduced new growth avenues for industry participants.

However, PU adhesives are anticipated to emerge as a fast growing product with a CAGR of 6.5%. Such specialty adhesives are contributing to faster bonding & processing times in the construction and electronics sector while lowering production costs.
