RnRMarketResearch.com adds report “Thermoplastic Elastomers Market By Types (SBC, TPO, TPV, TPU, COPE, PEBA), Applications & Geography – Trends & Forecasts To 2018” to its store.
The global market for thermoplastic elastomers in terms of revenue was estimated to be worth $15.1 billion in 2012, and is expected to reach $23.9 billion by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 8.1%, in terms of revenue, from 2013 to 2018. The APAC region dominated the global thermoplastic elastomer market, accounting for 42.4% of the global thermoplastic elastomer revenue in 2012. The APAC is expected to have the highest market revenue in 2018, followed by the North American market. ROW, a collection of individual country markets, is expected to be the fastest growing market in the future, growing at a CAGR of 10.1% from 2013 to 2018, owing to rising consumption in this region where the end-user markets of TPE are growing steadily. The European market is expected to grow at a rate of 6.7%, in revenue terms and 5.1% in consumption terms from 2013 to 2018.

A 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 high temperature. Due to this property, molding and processing of thermoplastics becomes easy. Shape change of a thermoplastic material is completely physical and with the reapplication of heat, it is purely reversible. A thermoplastic elastomer, a blend of elastomers and thermoplastics, combines the elastic properties of a thermoset elastomer and the processing attributes of a thermoplastic. TPE is made of two phases, hard (thermoplastic) and soft (cured thermoset rubber particles). This makes TPEs costlier than thermoset rubber but more effective. The property of TPEs to be easily reprocessed makes them environmental friendly leaving very chemical wastage. Many regulations in various customer markets affirm 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 a healthy 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 revenue generation of TPE is seen to be high in APAC, followed by the North American region.
