Global Waterborne Polyurethane Market: Trends and Opportunities:

Seeing that waterborne polyurethane is a key aspect in the paints and coatings industry, its global market is expected to rise through the impetus caught by the global construction industry. This is especially expected to be prominent in the emerging economies. The global waterborne polyurethane market is also finding new grounds of use through additional developments. Waterborne polyurethane dispersions, for instance, are currently being looked at with high optimism, as the modern variants are considered easy to use, chemically stable and safe, and relatively easier to manufacture. Other advantages of using waterborne polyurethane is their ease of application as compared to oil-based polyurethane coatings, along with their lower odor and clearer finish.

Global Waterborne Polyurethane Market: Region-wise Outlook:

Asia Pacific has so far been an exceptionally promising region for the inclusion of players from the global waterborne polyurethane market. China, India, Malaysia, and Indonesia are leaning heavily towards the incorporation of waterborne polyurethane into more commercial aspects, thereby providing an optimistic scope of growth for the both global and regional players present in Asia Pacific. This region is currently one of the epicenters for industrial expansion and infrastructure development, and is therefore a prime location for the manifold adoption rate of waterborne polyurethane. Similarly high growth rates can be seen in the MEA and Latin America regions as well, especially with Brazil hosting the upcoming Olympics and Qatar hosting the upcoming FIFA World Cup.
