Increasing demand for thermoplastic materials such as polyurethane in the Asia-Pacific region for the formulation of PU injections is driving the market growth. The rapid growth of the building & construction industry in China, India, and South Korea is projected to propel the demand for polyurethane injection resins in the near future. According to the Construction Association of Korea (CAK), In 2019, Korea’s construction-related industry, including public and private infrastructure and civil engineering services, generated estimated revenues of $148 billion (KRW166 trillion). Thus, the demand for the polyurethane injections market is therefore anticipated to increase in the forecast period because of these properties.

Polyurethane Injections Market Drivers

Better sustainability and performance characteristics

The depressed economic projections in many countries make it imperative to use cost-effective materials in the commercial and civil building sectors. Polyurethane-based concrete rehabilitation solutions have been found to be very cost-effective in replacing, rebuilding, and rehabilitating concrete buildings relative to more conventional mechanical materials practices. This system also applies to constructing sustainability ranking. Thus, the increasing understanding of the environmental concerns and the support provided by governments of different countries to move towards sustainable construction make people look to sustainable construction methods. Thus, for better performance characteristics and sustainability the demand for polyurethane injections is estimated to rise in the forecast period.

Increasing infrastructure cracks due to bad drainage and heavy load

Cracks may emerge as buildings and infrastructures age due to wear and strain, especially if maintenance is neglected. Also, the most common cause of building cracks is moisture. Water seepages caused by poor drainage can produce holes in concrete and other construction materials over time. Water, humidity, and moisture can cause damage to almost any structure. PU injection owing to its low viscosity can effectively fix the leaks and cracks that are created. Furthermore, excessive loads resulting from the constant movement of machinery and vehicles such as forklift trucks and lorries produce fractures or cracks in the floor over time. Cracks are usually significant, especially in areas with a lot of traffic. Water on the ground will form holes and gaps through the cracks, which can be mended with PU by filling them up, as many warehouses with tin roofs leak over time. Thus, growing cracks due to bad drainage and heavy loads are estimated to drive the polyurethane injections market growth over the forecast period.

Polyurethane Injections Market Challenges

Rising environmental and health concerns

Polyurethane can cause asthma and other breathing problems when left uncured. Many that spend time in rooms with uncured polyurethane floor treatments can also suffer health complications such as throat and eye pain, nausea, vomiting, headaches, coughing, and shortness of breath. Also, the method of obtaining polyurethane produces CO2 emissions during the production or manufacture process. Engineering precautions and sound occupational procedures are often the first lines of protection against polyurethane exposures, and advice has been developed to help people avoid overexposure and adverse health effects. For instance, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provides a Respiratory Security Policy (29 CFR § 1910.134) to resolve respiratory hazards. It is necessary for workers to wear any personal protective equipment (PPE) prescribed for their particular job functions. A worker can shield himself or herself from overexposure to polyurethane by sufficient precaution and the use of engineering controls and PPE. Hence, the rising health concerns from the exposure of polyurethane will further create hurdles for the polyurethane injections market in the forecast period.
