- Stellar growth in the adoption of high-performance synthetic leather across the industry is a key to market growth.
- Robust growth in demand from the synthetic leather applications will drive the polycarbonate diols market
- APAC is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period.
The global polycarbonate diols market is expected to grow from $200 million in 2019 to $255 million by 2024 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.0% during the forecast period. The primary factor driving the polycarbonate diols industry during the forecast period includes rising demand for high performance polyurethane in synthetic leather application.
Also, rising demand for waterborne paints & coatings and stringent government regulation across the globe are providing an impetus for market growth.
The natural leather industry has been affected by the supply of raw materials, growing environmental concerns, animal protection, and changes in consumer demand. Thus, a significant shift in the market from natural toward synthetic leather is being seen across the globe.
The PU synthetic leather has superior physico-chemical properties and is closer to natural leather in terms of handling, texture, and appearance. Due to the performance advantages of synthetic leather, it has replaced natural leather not only in the sectors of furniture, clothing, luggage, bags, shoes, etc., but also in automotive seat interiors, and interior decoration, among others. With the increase in the production of synthetic leather-based products and structural upgrading of the industry, the demand for high-quality, functional polyurethane from synthetic leather manufacturers is continuously growing across the globe.
Generally, solid polycarbonate diols impart high resistance to hydrolysis, oxidation, stain, and wear in polyurethane products as compared to polyether and polyester polyols. At low temperatures, solid polycarbonate diols offer optimum performance, strength, high thermal stability, and high mechanical properties, among others. In terms of demand, solid polycarbonate diols are consumed mainly in synthetic leathers followed by paints and coating applications. The availability of a wide range of solid products with varying molecular weights and its suitability for several end-use applications helps to maintain its ascendancy over the forecast period.
