thermoplastic polyurethane market size

 Owing to its properties such as elasticity, transparency, and resistance to grease, oil, and abrasion, thermoplastic polyurethane is commonly used in the automobile, manufacturing, aerospace, and medical industries for different applications. In addition, thermoplastic polyurethane is biodegradable, environmentally safe, and fully recyclable, making it an acceptable alternative to PVC and other polymers. This is projected during the forecast period to be one of the primary reasons for the growth of the industry. In addition, demand for thermoplastic polyurethane during the forecast period is expected to be driven by the development of these end-use industries.

In addition, the steady growth of the medical & healthcare industry due to demographic growth, income levels, and recognition, along with technological developments, is projected to further increase the growth of the thermoplastic polyurethane market size during the forecast period. Moreover, the vigorous growth of the automobile industry, powered by growing disposable income per capita, rapid urbanization, and worldwide economic growth, is projected to be the key driver of the growth of the global demand for thermoplastic polyurethanes. Therefore, the market for thermoplastic polyurethane in the aerospace industry is projected to increase due to the rapid growth of the aerospace industry across the world, due to the rising air passenger traffic, the growing tour and travel sector, and the growing affluent population.

The sector is set for a challenging challenge on the flip side, where it would go head-to-head with bio-based alternatives. Environmental problems can pose a serious challenge to the industry and have a negative effect on the market. Around the same time, fluctuating raw material costs can also be used as a rein on the projected growth of the market.
