Status : November, 2019 | Chemical & Materials | PPT format

Report Digest


Demand for polyurethane tooling board is gaining tailwinds from augmented use of tooling boards across multiple end-use industries for developing prototypes. With the increasing pace of product developments and contraction of product lifecycles, the demand for polyurethane tooling board is witnessing a considerable growth. The new product designs are mostly developed via computer systems and are modified to three-dimensional models, which is another key aspect fostering adoption of polyurethane tooling boards.

Sensing the evolving end-user demands, leading manufacturers are offering a wide-range of polyurethane tooling boards in a wide-range of sizes and densities meant for use in creation of multi-dimensional models. Manufacturers, with an aim of serving the end user requirements in a better way, offer polyurethane tooling boards in three different categories- light, medium, and high density boards.

Polyurethane Tooling Board Market- Notable Highlights

Wind Energy & Automotive Industries Stay at the Forefront of Demand for Polyurethane Tooling Board

Wind energy and automotive industries are likely to register substantial demand for polyurethane tooling board. High CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion) and unparalleled ease of machinability make polyurethane tooling board an ideal material and viable investment across multiple end-use industries. With scaling up of the production volumes, the demand for polyurethane tooling board in wind energy and automotive spaces is likely to demonstrate above average growth in the forthcoming years.

The massive march toward sustainable materials has encouraged the manufacturers across multiple industries to adopt renewable and recyclable resources for production, including shaving from the pre-existing processes and new bio based composite materials. The aforementioned factors along with extended governmental support for encouraging domestic production, is envisioned to boost demand for polyurethane tooling board.

In addition, superior surface finish and exceptional dimensional stability are among the key attributes responsible for propelling demand for polyurethane tooling boards. Role of polyurethane tooling boards in efficient development of complex shapes is also a key aspect validating its eminence for quality-based production.

Europe is likely to lead in terms of demand for polyurethane tooling board, primarily driven by presence of a larger customer base. In addition, demand for polyurethane tooling board is on a consistent rise for projects involving development of formula one cars, lightweight vehicles, and motorsports vehicles.

Manufacturers Focus on Offering Products with Optimal Technical Performance

In order to solidify their foothold in the global polyurethane tooling board market, manufacturers are commercializing high-specification products and offering bespoke formulations for engineering and modelling composites to particular customer requirements. In short, manufacturers are vying to offer products that cater to customer needs, both in terms of delivery speed & technical performance.
