    Polyurethane Dispersions Market Share: By Type

    Based on the type, the market is segmented as water-based polyurethane dispersions and solvent-based polyurethane dispersions. The water-based polyurethane dispersions segment is estimated to be the larger and faster-growing segment in the coming five years. Moreover, water-based polyurethane dispersions are versatile and environmentally friendly coating materials that are employed in an extensive range of film hardness and solid content. They do not contain free isocyanate residuals and deliver high-blocking resistance, weather resistance, long-term flexibility, UV resistance, and high abrasion resistance.

    Polyurethane Dispersions Market Share: By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented as coatings, adhesives & sealants, synthetic leather production, fiber glass sizing, and others. The synthetic leather production segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing application during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the major industrial manufacturers who are employing synthetic leather in footwear, handbags, apparels, automotive, interior, and other sectors. Further, PUD synthetic leather offers low volatile organic compound and has environmental friendliness. High-solid polyurethane dispersions enable it to economically yield synthetic leather without the usage of solvents. Thus, the increasing production of synthetic leather demands for high amount of polyurethane dispersions which ultimately bolsters the PUDs market for this application.

    Polyurethane Dispersions Market Share: By Region

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for polyurethane dispersions and it is also expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. China and India are the growth engines of the region. The market is driven by the growing demand from various end-use industries, such as coatings, leather production, and adhesives in the region. Rapid development in infrastructure and rising demand for coatings and adhesives in various end-use industries, such as automobile, textile, and leather are anticipated to drive the PUDs market in this region during the forecast period. North America and Europe are also expected to offer substantial growth opportunities during the forecast period.


    Market Scope & Segmentation

    Polyurethane dispersions are actually polymer resin. There are two types of resins among which one is dispersible in the water while the other is dispersible in a solvent. Polyurethanes with the functionality of carboxylic acid are synthesized to get this resin. These are used in a number of applications such as different types of coatings, and also anticorrosive uses.

    Polyurethane dispersions are also highly used in designing devices and so on. Coatings, adhesives, synthetic leather, and fiberglass are some of the industries where they are used.
