In addition, the expanding automobile industry in the developing economies of the Central and South American region contributes hugely to the polyurethane dispersions market.
Coatings, the largest application for polyurethane dispersions
Coatings are the largest application of polyurethane dispersions. Polyurethane dispersions are used widely for coatings application in various end-use industries such as construction, automotive, aerospace, electronics, leather, textile, wood, and other sectors. As polyurethane dispersions are characterized with adhesion to a range of substrates, resistance to chemicals, solvents and water, abrasion resistance and flexibility, it is the ideal material for the coatings application. Additionally, the coatings segment is expected to boost further with the shift in industries from developed to developing economies, particularly from the U.S. to China. Different types of coatings such as decorative coatings, industrial coatings, architectural coatings, and maintenance coatings market are growing individually. Polyurethane dispersions are the ideal material performing significantly in the coatings market with the growing environmental legislations and government regulations on low VOCs; hence, enhancing the growth of coatings application in the polyurethane dispersions market.
Asia-Pacific, the largest and fastest-growing market for polyurethane dispersions
Asia-Pacific is the largest market for polyurethane dispersions globally, with China being the most dominant market. This region is witnessing the highest growth rate which is attributed to the rapid economic expansion currently undergoing in the region. The demand of polyurethane dispersions is highly dependent on the economic growth of a region. Further, rapid development in Asia-Pacific is vigorously driving the demand for polyurethane dispersions for coatings, leather production, adhesives, and other applications.
