Global Waterborne Polyurethane (PU) Coating Market Insight January 19, 2022 Comments

The Waterborne Polyurethane (PU) Coating is expected to recover,trailing a post-COVID-19 CAGR of 5.67% over the analysis period 2021 to 2026. According to the WK-chem Research) “Global Waterborne Polyurethane (PU) Coating Professional Survey Report 2022, Forecast to 2027”, the end use of waterborne polyurethane sealants in the construction industry and industry will drive market growth.. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the 2022-2027 period is projected to be 5.67% base on WK-chem Research regression analysis model.

Analysts’ Viewpoint:
“COVID-19 will affect global automobile production in 2021. This also translates into a snowballing effect on the waterborne polyurethane (PU) coating market. Automotive & transportation industry is among the major end-use industry for waterborne polyurethanes. The lockdown in various countries owing to the pandemic has negatively impacted the demand for waterborne polyurethanes in the construction industry as well. However, the demand is expected to rise post pandemic”, said Claire Jackson, Senior analyst, Chemical&Material Market Research Center in WK-chem Research.

Market insight
Solvent-based polyurethanes are made up of liquefying agents that evaporate when comes in contact with oxygen. Solvent-based polyurethanes emit toxic fumes that contain harmful free isocyanates, which can affect the respiratory system and be dangerous for asthma sufferers, children, and the elderly. It also emits VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) into the atmosphere. Breathing VOCs can irritate the eyes, nose and throat, can cause difficulty breathing and nausea, and can damage the central nervous system as well as other organs. Some VOCs can cause cancer. Owing to the harmful effects of these emissions regulatory bodies have pressurized in developing environment-friendly products. Waterborne polyurethanes were developed as a result of the regulatory pressure on harmful chemical emissions and are non-toxic. Waterborne polyurethanes are stable, easy-to-use, and exhibit properties similar to solvent-based systems.

Solvent-based polyurethanes use major solvents such as are butanone, cyclohexanone, ethyl acetate, and toluene. These organic solvents tend to be highly volatile and toxic, flammable and explosive, which is not only dangerous, but also a threat to the environment and human health. As a result, waterborne polyurethanes were developed that are non-toxic and environment friendly. Waterborne polyurethane coatings with low VOC emissions and good product performance have drawn wide public concern. However, due to the limitations of the molecular structure of waterborne polyurethanes, it has some disadvantages, such as heat resistance, water resistance, solvent resistance, and poor gloss. The developers are working to improvise the performance of waterborne polyurethanes.

Competition Landscape:
In June 2019, DSM had partnered with TLF (Germany), a globally operating company supplying specialty chemicals to leather and related industries. This partnership includes supply as well as R&D of cutting edge, sustainable waterborne polyurethane dispersions system. By partnering at different points in the value chain, DSM and TFL are able to further unlock the value of sustainable leather finishes and strengthen their respective market positions. Some of the leading players will include in our report: Covestro, DSM, BASF, R STAHL , Chemtura , Dow Inc ., , H.B. Fuller , Wanhua Chemical, SNP Inc., and KAMSONS Chemical Pvt. Ltd..

Segmentation of Waterborne Polyurethane (PU) Coating Market:
According to the type, the market for waterborne polyurethane (PU) coating is divided into coating, sealant, adhesive and elastomer. Coating has the largest market share. Waterborne polyurethanes have been at the epicenter of coating industry, providing greener solutions to modern coating problems. This chemical is polyurethane dispersed in water. This reduces the dependence on solvent-based polyurethanes, providing a better and environment-friendly replacement for existing systems.
According to the application, the market for waterborne polyurethane (PU) coating is divided into building and construction, automotive and transportation, bedding and furniture and electronics. Waterborne polyurethane based sealants provide tighter seals and forms a flexible and elastomeric seam on curing. The UV resistant sealant provides excellent adhesion to most of the industrial materials. Waterborne polyurethane sealants are more suitable for various applications owing to the formation of durable waterproof seal on curing. Waterborne polyurethane sealants are used in road repair, plumbing, and construction where a high-strength, water-resistant seal is needed. They provide high stress recovery to retain shape after being bent or deformed, fast curing rates, and even adherence to non-primed concrete. These end-uses of waterborne polyurethane sealants is driving market growth. Advantages like temperature curing and good adhesion further reinforce the case for waterborne polyurethanes. It is frequently used in building and construction applications. Affordability of these versatile materials and the comfort they provide have made polyurethane components part of building & construction industry, globally.

Waterborne Polyurethane (PU) Coating Market: Regional Analysis
In terms of geography, the global waterborne polyurethane (PU) coating market has been segmented into: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, South America, and the Middle East and Africa. The waterborne polyurethanes market in APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The market in APAC is driven by the growing construction and industrial activities, increased consumer spending, and strong economic growth. The recent COVID-19 pandemic is expected to impact the global automotive industry. The entire supply chain is disrupted due to limited supply of parts. For instance, Hubei province in China, which accounts for the more of the Chinese auto production, was severely impacted by pandemic. Chinese suppliers around the globe have placed production lines on halt or shut them down completely. The legal and trade restrictions, such as sealed borders, increase the shortage of required parts. Such disruptions in supply chain is expected to affect the assembly of OEMs in Europe and North America.
