Global Polycaprolactone Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) is a high performance thermoplastic elastomer. It has excellent resistance to oil, grease and abrasion. Additionally, it is also very tough and durable with good tensile strength. TPU can be used in a variety of applications including footwear, automotive parts, seals and gaskets.


Polyols are organic compounds containing oxygen and sugar. They are primarily used as a foaming or swelling agent in various industries including paints & coatings, plastics, adhesives & sealants, printing inks and cosmetics among others. Polyol resins when blended with other polymers such as polyamide or polypropylene can be utilized to manufacture thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs).


Diisocyanate is an organic compound, which contains a group of oxygen and nitrogen. The chemical formula for the product is (OCO)nNC(C4H4)2. It has a colorless liquid form with a mild odor. Diisocyanates are used in polyurethane products as crosslinking agents to make them more durable and flexible at the same time along with increasing their strength which makes them resistant to mechanical stress & heat.

Application Insights:

The footwear application segment led the global polycaprolactone thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market in 2017. The product is used to manufacture high-quality footwear that provides comfort and support to the wearer. It offers flexibility in design as well as easy maintenance, which makes it a preferred material for manufacturing shoes and boots.

The industrial machinery application segment is expected register a significant CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to its properties such as durability, versatility, strength and heat resistance along with low cost making it an ideal choice for manufacturing hoses & belts among others. In addition, it finds applications in automotive industry including tires & tubes where it is used on account of its excellent tensile strength and abrasion resistance making them suitable for heavy-duty operations at highest temperatures range thus driving the demand over forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to rising product demand from various end-use industries, such as automotive, electronics, medical & healthcare and footwear. China is one of the largest producers of polycaprolactone thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) owing to easy availability of raw materials coupled with low manufacturing cost compared to other countries in the world.

The Asia Pacific market was followed by Europe which accounted for a revenue share of 23% in 2017 owing to high demand for PU shoes from major shoe manufacturers including Adidas AG; Nike Inc.; Puma S.E.; and Reebok International Ltd., among others based out of Germany, France, Italy and U.K., respectively.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive industry for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles
  • Growing demand for TPU in medical applications due to its biocompatibility and elasticity
  • Rising popularity of TPU in sports equipment owing to its high strength-to-weight ratio
  • Increasing use of TPU in electrical and electronic appliances due to its insulation properties
  • Growing demand from the construction sector for flooring, roofing, and window profiles
