Polyurethane Dispersions Market Segment Analysis – By Type

Water-based segment type held the largest share of the global polyurethane dispersion industry in 2021. Water-based polyurethane dispersions are versatile and environmentally friendly materials that are available in a wide range of hardness and solid content. Their versatility and wide range of superior properties, such as abrasion resistance, impact strength, and low-temperature flexibility are the driving forces to their continuously expanding usage in many applications. Water-based polyurethane dispersion is free from isocyanate residues and has a low volatile organic compound which is expected to project market growth.

Polyurethane Dispersions Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Paints and coatings held the largest share of the global polyurethane dispersion in 2021 and are growing at a CAGR of 7.4% during 2022-2027. Polyurethane dispersions are used in paints due to low volatile organic compound emission, excellent durability, high abrasion resistance, and absence of harmful monomers. Hence, the increasing automotive production is estimated to grow the demand for paints which, in turn, is estimated to boost the polyurethane dispersions consumption. According to the European Automobile Manufacturer Association (ACEA), the automotive sector is a major investor in R&D in Europe, which has increased by 6.7% to reach €57.4 billion (US$ 64.25 billion) annually as of 2019. Additionally, polyurethane dispersion consists of low volatile organic compounds and environment-friendly nature which is projected to grow the market scenario during the era.

Polyurethane Dispersions Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia Pacific dominated the market of polyurethane dispersions market in 2021 above 30%, due to growing demand from various industries such as paint & coatings, automotive, adhesives & sealants, leather and textiles, construction, and others in Asian countries. Polyurethane dispersion is used as raw material to manufacture synthetic leather and footwear. Therefore, the increasing footwear industry is estimated to boost the market. According to the Council on leather Exports (CLC), India is the second-largest global producer of footwear after China, accounting for 11.63% of global footwear production of 17.7 billion pairs. Also. The growing development in the adhesive industry is also estimated to create an opportunity for the market. Pidilite Industries acquired India's Huntsman Group's subsidiary for Rs. 2,100 crores (US$ 283.38 million). This acquisition is increasing the retail portfolio of adhesives and sealants in Asian countries. furthermore, growing demand for more comfort and trending lifestyle are accelerating the demand for footwear which, in turn, is estimated to propel the polyurethane dispersions market.

Polyurethane Dispersions Market Drivers

Increasing Demand from Textile and Leather Industry

Polyurethane dispersions are widely used in textile and leather finishing as they offer excellent tensile strength, extreme temperatures durability, high elasticity, and high abrasion resistance. Thus, the rising consumption of leather in the manufacturing of handbags, footwear, seat covers, apparel, and other products is estimated to grow the consumption of polyurethane dispersions. Hence increasing demand for leather products is estimated to boost the demand for polyurethane dispersions. According to the International Trade Center (ITC), exportation growth in the quantity of footwear (with outer shole of rubber, plastic, and leather composition) was 73% in 2017-2018 in China. Additionally, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India is the world’s second-largest consumer of footwear. The leather products and footwear market in India are estimated to be about USD 12 billion in 2021. Hence, increasing demand for footwear is estimated to grow the leather market which, in turn, is estimated to boost the market size. 

Growing Demand from Automotive Industry

Polyurethane dispersions are widely used in the automotive industry for car refinishing paints due to various properties such as excellent chemical, solvent, abrasion, scratch resistance, flexibility, and adhesion. Hence, the growing automotive industry is estimated to boost the consumption of polyurethane dispersions. The Chinese government expects the production of automobiles to reach 35 million units by 2025, according to the International Trade Administration (ITA). Therefore, according to the International organization of Vehicle Motor Manufacturers (OICA), in China commercial vehicle production increased by 31.4% to 5731161 units in 2020 as compared to 4360472 units in 2019.
