North American sales of thermoplatic polyurethane rise

North America: Sales of thermoplatic polyurethane (TPU) has increased year-on-on year in the six months to 30 June 2019 by 4.0%. The proportion of domestically produced TPU exported fell by 38.3%.

Data from the American Chemistry Council and Vault Consulting indicate American demand responding well to TPU’s tensile strength and grease resitance, even as polyurethanes lose out to substitutes in the Asian and European insulation sectors.
