Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Films Market: Snapshot

Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films are functional polymers that possesses the key attributes of plastic and rubber, such as low weight, high elasticity, and good resistance against abrasion, heat, chemicals, oil, and moisture. Led by their structural properties, TPU products are employed in a wide range of applications across the automotive and construction industries. The future scope of TPU products is anticipated to expand during the forecast period, led by the surge in construction and infrastructure projects. This can be attributed mainly to the recovery of the construction sector in several countries and the increase in government investments in infrastructure development.

The global thermoplastic polyurethane films market was valued at US$286.8 mn in 2015 and is projected to reach US$516.9 mn by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 6.8% therein.

Increasing Demand for Lightweight Auto Parts Driving TPU Films Market

TPU films are primarily used in automotive, building and construction, energy, and aerospace industries. In terms of volume, the automotive sector led the global thermoplastic polyurethane films market in 2015, followed by the building and construction industry. Thermoplastic polyurethane films are used to reduce the overall weight of automotive body parts. Furthermore, these films are used in engineering and designing noise- and vibration-absorbing automotive parts.

Thermoplastic polyurethane films are employed in the building and construction industry owing to their excellent tear resistance properties. TPU films are also used in processing and designing shoe sole inserts and the upper portions of athletic sportswear. A rise in the usage of thermoplastic polyurethane films in the aerospace segment is estimated to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the TPU films market in the next few years.
