Global $16.63 Bn Polyurethane Elastomers Market, 2022

DUBLIN, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Polyurethane Elastomers Market by Type (Thermoset Polyurethane Elastomers and TPU Elastomers), Application (Footwear, Automotive & Transportation, Industrial Machinery, Building & Construction), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022" report has been added to's offering.

The global PU elastomers market is estimated to reach USD 16.63 Billion by 2022 from USD 12.47 Billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2017 to 2022.

The PU elastomers market has witnessed significant growth in the recent years due to the excellent properties of PU elastomers, such as heat resistance, weathering and ozone resistance, flexibility, durability, aging resistance, huge variety, and chemical resistance. The superior properties of PU elastomers over standard elastomers, metals, and rubbers drive the global PU elastomers market.

The main types of PU elastomers are thermoset PU elastomers and thermoplastic PU elastomers. Based on type, thermoset polyurethane elastomers have a high structural integrity and heat resistance as compared to TPU. Thermoset polyurethane elastomers are renowned for their high impact strength, high resilience, greater load bearing capacity, excellent resistance to oil and grease, and high abrasion resistance. Owing to these properties, they provide the opportunity to be used as per the requirement of specific applications such as automotive & transportation, footwear, and building & construction.

PU elastomers are used in various applications such as footwear, automotive & transportation, industrial machinery, and building & construction. Among these, PU elastomers are majorly used in the footwear application for a perfect combination of ergonomics, microclimate, and sensation to deliver most comfortable experience to consumers. High abrasion resistance, light weight, and excellent long-term mechanical properties are preferable for hardwearing shoe soles. In addition, the growth in demand for PU elastomers is in response to its physical properties, such as enhanced resiliency, high mechanical strength, heat resistance, lower shrinkage, high filler capacity, durability and softness, resistance to hydrolysis, high rigidity, and resistance to chemicals. Low-density compact PU elastomers are used especially for mid-soles and outer soles.

APAC, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and South America have been considered as key markets for PU elastomers in the report. APAC is estimated to lead the PU elastomers market because of the rising demand for PU elastomers from the footwear, automotive, and transportation industries. Europe is the second-largest consumer of PU elastomers. Increasing disposable incomes and rising living standards of consumers are fueling the demand for PU elastomers in various applications

The PU elastomers market is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years. However, factors such as hazardous impact on human health and environment may hinder the growth of the market.
