Polyurea Market size in excess of $1.5bn by 2022
Published Date: February 6, 2017 Author: Global Market Insights, Inc.
Polyurea market size could be in excess of USD 1.5 billion by 2022; as reported in a new study by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Growth is primarily driven by the developing application segments such as construction and industrial uses. Infrastructural developments such as residential and commercial buildings, roads, bridges, parking lots, etc. will bolster the global polyurea market in the forecast timespan. China, U.S., India, and Japan construction market is expected to account for close to half of the overall USD 8 trillion construction market by 2030. Construction spending in Asia Pacific due to high number of government and non-government projects and its rising trend will drive the polyurea market size in the upcoming years.
Inherent inertness of the product to several chemicals and fluids promote its application in the industries where it can be installed in less than 24 hours because of its rapid curing property. It finds extensive application in lining the storage and containment tanks for oil & gas, radioactive materials, food & beverages, etc. Industrial applications generated around USD 300 million for 2014.
Rapidly flourishing industrial environment and growing automotive industry of Asia Pacific will also support the overall polyurea market growth in the next few years. Industrial applications include waterproofing and corrosion resistance of pipelines, providing chemical and impact resistance to tanks and reservoirs, machineries, etc.
Another important driving factor for the global polyurea market will be the superior quality in comparison to epoxy coating. Higher durability and flexibility along with UV stability, high tensile strength, impact resistance, chemical and oil resistance, faster curing time, and easy application techniques gives the product an upper hand in the coating industry, and will boost global polyurea market up to 2022. The product is also environmentally safe, owing to its lower volatile organic compound (VOC) content. Polyurea coating provides good aesthetic quality to the floors, walls, and other surfaces by giving a glossy finishing and it will influence the global industry positively.
Polyurea market may be hindered due to low product variety on a commercial level and lack of marketing. Due to increasing commoditization, the product sustainability is weakened.
