As per the findings of Grand View Research Inc., the global polyurea market stood at 114.3 kilo tons in 2014 and is projected to rise to 150 kilo tons by 2022. Polyurea is an elastomer obtained by a polyaddition reaction of aromatic isocyanate or aliphatic or of an isocyanate prepolymer with a polyfunctional mixture of amines, which are generally mixed in a ratio of 1:1. Inherent inertness of polyurea to various chemicals and fluids is promoting its applications in several industries. Besides this, the polymer offers several unique characteristics, including high thermal stability, fast curing time, and superior pigment compatibility.
The market is poised to amount to USD 936.7 million by 2022. Polyurea is extensively used in the construction and transportation sectors. Therefore, rapid infrastructural development such as commercial and residential buildings, bridges, parking lots, and roads, especially in emerging economies, is likely to stoke market growth. Surging use of protective coatings in the automotive industry for rust prevention and high durability is also anticipated to escalate the growth of the market.
Polyurea provides excellent adhesion to clean substrates such as bitumen, wood, blasted steel, and concrete and is, therefore, added to adhesive and sealant formulations on a large scale. The volume of polyurea-based adhesives and sealants used in 2014 summed up to 11.3 kilo tons. Expanding applications of adhesives and sealants as bonding agents in industries such as construction and automotive can augment the market. Rising industrialization worldwide is also playing an important role in the development of the market. Spiraling demand for linings to provide corrosion resistance and waterproofing qualities in fuel containers, chemical tanks, and metallic pipelines can drive the market.

The elastomer is environmentally safe due to its lower volatile organic compound (VOC) content. Growing investments in the construction of lining systems in practices including landfill control to promote environmental protection are expected to positively influence growth. Besides this, polyurea offers good aesthetic quality to surfaces such as walls and floors by imparting a glossy finish, which in turn can stir up its demand in landscape designing and other architectural designs.
On the other hand, strong presence of low-cost coating substitutes such as polyurethane and epoxy is one of the major stumbling blocks for polyurea manufacturers. Moreover, growing prominence of polyolefin-based lining systems in the mining and construction sectors can hamper growth prospects. Lack of standardization is encouraging the sales of poor hybrids, which is adversely affecting the growth of the market.
However, innovation in production methods of polyurea can spur its adoption in the near future. For instance, according to “Progress in Organic Coatings”, a paper published on ScienceDirect in May 2017, synthesis of phenalkamines from cardonal and their application as curing agents for blocked polyisocyanates can yield polyurea coatings with phenomenal mechanical and chemical properties.
