This product is widely procured by end-users as they are eco-friendly and complaint with the norms stipulated by authorities monitoring the environmental effects of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). For instance, the European Union Ecolabelling Board (EUEB) identifies and lists the hazardous classifications and characteristics of preparations, compounds and substances that cannot be used by automotive and construction end-users as stipulated by the Ecolabel Regulation.

Rising urbanization has led to an increased application scope in the transportation and construction industries. The polyurea solutions are often used in construction and automotive industries to repair tunnels and bridges, construct highways and roads, and as vehicle coatings. The rapidly increasing infrastructural spending and emphasis on improvement of public transport, construction of subways, and urbanization are facilitating favourable conditions for the polyurea market growth.

The coronavirus pandemic has led to an imposition on travel ban and shutdown of manufacturing units, offices & marketplaces by governments all over the world, which have led to value chain disruptions throughout the globe. This has adversely affected raw materials supply for producing polyurea. This pandemic has led to global lockdown of constructions, manufacturing plants and transportation which may decrease polyurea utilization.

Industrial application is expected to reach over USD 600 million by 2026. Polyurea solutions find common applications in industrial end-uses like safety-pool coating and industrial bridging. This factor is projected to support market growth during the forecast period. The polyurea coating and sealing solutions have turned out to be lucrative alternatives to incompatible materials like lead. Polyurea has unique characteristics such as high tensile strength and elongation property, which makes it preferable for crack sealing applications. Moreover, it also has low setting and curing duration, which makes the product suitable for line stripping and pavement marking, fuelling the polyurea market demand across the globe.

Environmental sustainability, water resistance, and flexibility are the key performance metrics for polyurea. Thus, it is very commonly preferred by landscape architects for reinforcement applications in geotextile industry. Hence, it increases shelf life and lowers maintenance cost. Additionally, it is also used in arts and entertainment industry to ensure provision of stable surfaces for art objects, artificial landscape and stage props on the sets.

Europe is expected to reach over USD 500 million by 2026. Rising emphasis on environmental protection in construction and manufacturing industries is projected to boost demand. Increasing construction spending in Europe is driving the polyurea market growth. European authorities have sanctioned the use of polyurea roofing membranes for waterproofing applicatons owing to their flexibility, resistive and ecological propoerties.

Other key properties include longer shelf life and enhanced elongation, which is approximately 50 times of epoxy. This imparts pure polyurea with excellent crack resistive properties that make it attractive for infrastructural end-uses. Pure polyurea also plays a major role in preventing growth of microbes in wall cavities which in turn facilitates easy maintenance. This characteristic makes it suitable for use as single surface coating between the walls and floors.
