Global Thermoplastic Elastomer Market, By Product Type (Co-Polyester, Polyurethane, Vulcanizates, E

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1924683


Increasing demand from the automotive and medical industries for various applications is expected to drive the market growth of the thermoplastic elastomer market during the forecast period.  

A thermoplastic elastomer is a type of thermoplastic polymer. It is also called thermoplastic rubber, as it displays properties and performance of both, plastic and rubber. Due to the elastomeric component of the material, it is soft and flexible and can be stretched to almost twice its length. When released, it returns to its original size. Thermoplastic elastomers have several properties such as shock absorption, cleanliness, dimensional stability, thermal resistance, chemical resistance, weather resistance (non-corrosive) easy sterilization, flexibility, etc., which are attracting several industries for numerous applications.

Thermoplastic elastomers are used in several automotive parts such as instrument panels, wheel covers, pillar trim, dashboard components, etc. Moreover, they are increasingly being used in the medical industry.

 Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Thermoplastic elastomers are environment-friendly and recyclable
  • Thermoplastic elastomers can be easily processed and molded, and hence, their production has low energy requirement saving on production cost
  • Increasing areas of application in the automotive and medical industries
