According to the latest report by IMARC Group, “Global Thermoplastic polyurethane Market Size, Share, Growth, Industry Trends, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027“, the global thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market reached a value of US$ 2.47 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 3.67 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.60% during 2022-2027.

Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) represents a unique type of plastic that bridges the gap between plastics and rubbers. It is a transparent, highly elastic, and melt-processable thermoplastic elastomer produced via polyaddition reactions. Thermoplastic polyurethane is widely used in specialty molded parts, adhesives, hoses, tubes, films, footwear, sheets, wires, cables, etc. It exhibits transparency, high elasticity, and resistance to high-energy radiation, abrasion, oil, grease, solvents, etc. Besides this, when compared to polyvinyl chloride (PVC), TPU is more environment-friendly and biodegradable. Consequently, it finds widespread application across the construction, medical, electronics, and automotive industries.
