2018 Thermoplastic Elastomers Market

  1. 1. 2018 Thermoplastic Elastomers Market –Types, Applications & GeographyA thermoplastic material softens, shows plastic property, when heated, but it does not set or get cured.Thermoplastics generally available in the form of pellets become softer and liquid when exposed to hightemperature. Due to this property, molding and processing of thermoplastics becomes easy. Shapechange of a thermoplastic material is completely physical and with the reapplication of heat, it is purelyreversible. A thermoplastic elastomer, a blend of elastomers and thermoplastics, combines the elasticproperties of a thermoset elastomer and the processing attributes of a thermoplastic. TPE is made of twophases, hard (thermoplastic) and soft (cured thermoset rubber particles). This makes TPEs costlier thanthermoset rubber but more effective. The property of TPEs to be easily reprocessed makes themenvironmental friendly leaving very chemical wastage. Many regulations in various customer marketsaffirm usage of TPEs for this reason.The global market for TPE has grown evidently during the past few years and is expected to grow at ahealthy pace in the next five years, driven by cost effectiveness and adaptability of TPEs in major end-user markets. China shared about 24.3% of the TPE demand in 2012. Consumption and revenuegeneration of TPE is seen to be high in APAC, followed by the North American region.This study basically aims to estimate the global market of TPE for 2013 and to project the expecteddemand of the same in 2018.
