Thermoplastic Elastomers Market Overview
Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) are multifunctional polymeric materials that are processed in the same way as plastic but possess rubber properties. TPEs exhibit excellent performance characteristics such as shock absorption, cleanliness, easy sterilization, dimensional stability, chemical, weather, and thermal resistance, and flexibility. TPEs can be easily processed, molded, and recycled, and hence production requires low energy costs and is eco-friendly. They are mainly used in the automotive industry for fuel line coverings, side bumpers, mudguard components, air vents, door handles, and door weather strips, among others. In addition, TPEs find application in the building and construction, home appliances, and healthcare industries.
The rising demand for TPEs in the automotive industry is expected to propel market growth during the forecast period. TPEs are used in the manufacturing of various vehicle components to reduce weight, thus increasing the efficiency of vehicles. Due to the expanding global population, the automotive industry is projected to grow at a significant rate and is likely to boost the demand for thermoplastic elastomers in the coming years. Moreover, TPEs are used in the manufacturing of anti-vibration mounts, inlet pipes and exhaust manifolds, filter housings seals, drum suspensions bushes, and door seals of washing machines and dishwashers. Furthermore, the application of TPEs in the electrical and footwear industries is likely to drive market growth during the review period.
