The global TPU films market is expected to grow at CAGR of nearly 6% during the forecast period. Abundant raw material availability such as isocyanate, polyols, MDI, TDI, etc. is considered to be a strength of the market. However, the utilization of these raw materials in numerous end-use industries is predicted to hinder the raw material supply for TPU film production which is expected to pose a threat to the market during the forecast period.

The demand for touchscreens and displays in car interiors has increased considerably due to developing digitization, network connectivity, and autonomous driving. This developing trend of digitization entails screen designs that can be effortlessly incorporated into the surfaces of center consoles, instrument panels, seat panels, and doors of the vehicle. Therefore, demand for flexible electronics in the automobile industry is anticipated to rise in the next few years. TPU films offer great flexibility and hence the manufacturers furnish these films by film processors that possess electronic functions such as sensor elements, traces, etc. With their great adhesion to textiles and extreme flexibility, TPU films offer the best fundamentals for incorporating the essential electronics into door panels. Increase in demand for flexible electronics and digitized automatic transmission systems is anticipated to drive the TPU films market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, TPU films are hydrolysis resistant and perform well in hot environments compared to their counterparts. These films pigmented in bright safety colors are suitable for the production of inflatable safety devices used in the aerospace industry. TPU films also possess other important characteristics such as elasticity, weld strength, and resistance to growing fungi and microbes, which makes them an ideal choice for the manufacturing of safety equipment in the aerospace industry. The rise in demand for TPU films for the production of safety devices in the aerospace industry is expected to boost the TPU films market during the next few years. However, availability of substitutes with enhanced performance such as thermoplastic olefins are expected to hamper the TPU films market during the forecast period.

Read Report Overview @

Polyester TPU held major share of the global TPU films market in 2016, as polyester TPU films are widely consumed in automotive, footwear, building & construction, and aerospace industries. The polycaprolactone TPU segment held lesser share of the global TPU films market however, it is estimated to expand at a fast pace during the forecast period due to its superior performance characteristics compared to its counterparts.

TPU films are used in a variety of applications as they offer high elasticity and low permeability along with resistance to hydrolysis, high temperature, puncture, tear and fatigue. Automotive & transportation and aerospace segments collectively accounted for more than 40% share of the global TPU films market in 2016. Market share of the footwear segment is expected to decline minimally by 2025. This can be ascribed to the rise in usage of other synthetic and bio-based counterparts.
