Global Industrial PU Elastomer Market is expected to grow by US$11.16Billion, thanks to growth in the Typeand Application segment. The report analyzes market dynamics by region and end-user industries.
Global Industrial PU Elastomer Market Overview:

The global Industrial PU Elastomer market was valued at US$6.85 Bn. in 2019, and it is expected to grow at US$11.16 Bn. by 2027 with a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period.

Polyurethane (PU) elastomers are synthetics having elastic properties manufactured by reacting polymeric materials. They are based on diisocyanates, polyols, and in some cases chain extenders. These elastomers are made by combining hard (isocyanate) and flexible (polyol) components, with different selections resulting in better polyurethane elastomers. PU elastomers are first-class materials used for coatings.

2019 is considered as a base year to forecast the market from 2021 to 2027. 2020’s market size is estimated based on real numbers and outputs of the key players and major players across the globe. The past five years trends are considered while forecasting the market through 2027. 2020 is a year of exception and is analyzed especially with the impact of lockdown by region.
COVID–19 Influence on Global Industrial PU Elastomer Market:

• Unlike other industries, the medical and healthcare industry had a positive impact on the pandemic. Medical devices like thermal scanners, ventilators, diagnostic devices, and patient care items were in huge demand as the COVID-19 patients across the globe were rising. Pu elastomer is used for the production of this medical equipment. Thus, the pandemic surged the demand for PU elastomers and led to the growth of the market.

• The pandemic harmed the transportation industry. As transportation mounts, suspension pads, damper springs, busing, drive belts, bunnage, bed liners, filters, wheels, tires, tire fills, rollers, and various components are all made from PU elastomers.The manufacturing and fabrication of aeronautical, automotive, and marine components had been halted in major economies like China, Germany, the US, and many others leading to a shortage of raw materials, a slowdown in logistics, and a reduction in manpower.As a result, there has been a sharp drop in consumer presence in stores and automotive sales.
Global Industrial PU Elastomer Market Dynamics:

With the qualities such as tear and corrosion resistance, high load-bearing capacity, chemically inert, and excellent dynamic performance, transportation is one of the main end-use industries for PU elastomers.Industrial PU elastomers are important in reducing the overall weight of transportation equipment, which improves fuel efficiency and reduces pollution emissions. Thus, the popularity of lightweight designs of the equipment used in the production of transportation components are expected to drive the demand for PU elastomers as well as the market growth during the forecast period.

Thermoplastic PU elastomer is a high-temperature operating elastomer that requires highly qualified technical expertise during its manufacturing process. Since the process is more complicated than that of other types of plastics, such as PE, PVC, natural rubbers, and conventional PU, the manufacturing of this specific elastomer involves a huge investment.Furthermore, compounding grades of polyethylene, polypropylene, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and PU are being produced that have qualities similar to industrial PU elastomers but are less expensive. Thus, the high manufacturing cost and constantly increasing prices of its raw material are the factors expected to limit the use of industrial PU elastomer in some of the industries like automotive, transportation, aerospace, marine, and others.

Thermoplastic PU elastomer has good chemical and mechanical properties, as well as being biocompatible, all of which are essential in medical applications. Furthermore, features such as wear resistance, low temperature, oil, chemical resistance, and resilience make thermoplastic PU elastomer an excellent alternative to PVC. Plasticizers are found in PVC, which might provide a safety risk. Plasticizers contain phthalates, which can cause liver problems, cancer, and reproductive tract abnormalities in male infants. When PVC is burned, it emits hazardous compounds and causes environmental issues. Since some medical equipment is introduced into the human body for treatment purposes, safety and comfort are important considerations when selecting materials for medical devices.Catheters, medical devices, orthodontic devices, and wound care products are examples of their use in healthcare. As the demand for minimum encroaching surgery is increasing, it is also providing lucrative growth opportunities in front of industrial PU elastomer manufacturers.

Crude oil, natural gas, TDI, MDI, and polyols are the primary raw materials needed to manufacture thermoplastic PU elastomer.These petroleum-based basic materials are sensitive to price fluctuations.For PU manufacturers, the price and availability of raw materials are the most important factors in defining the cost structure of their products.The price of thermoplastic PU elastomers has been volatile due to raw material price volatility.Adipic acid is a polyester polyol used in the production of thermoplastic PU elastomers.A significant amount of adipic acid is used in the manufacture of nylon around the world. Increased nylon demand, combined with changing lifestyles in developing nations like China and India, has resulted in an adipic acid supply imbalance. Thus, the price of PU elastomers has risen much more as a result of this imbalance. So, maintaining the economic price of the product is a challenging task for the PU elastomer manufacturers.
Global Industrial PU Elastomer Market Segment Analysis:

Based on Type, the global Industrial PU Elastomer market is segmented into two types as follows, Thermoplastic PU Elastomer and Thermoset PU Elastomer.

In 2019, the thermoset PU elastomer segment led the market by accounting xx% of the overall market share, owing to given the low cost and widespread availability of thermoset PU elastomers around the world, particularly in Asia Pacific. High impact strength, good resilience, high load-bearing capacity, remarkable resistance to oil and grease, and high corrosion resistance are all features of the Thermoset PU elastomer making them a suitable material for various industries like mining equipment, medical, manufacturing, transportation, building & construction, and material handling.

The thermoplastic PU elastomer segment, on the other hand, is expected to grow at a faster rate of xx% over the forecast period, thanks to its remarkable benefits in filling the gap between elastic rubber and rigid plastics.
