Thermoplastic Elastomers Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Apr 2021

[Online Quarterly Update]Global Thermoplastic Elastomers demand is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.55% until 2030. Growing automotive industry and high demand for electric vehicles is the major driver for the forecast period. Thermoplastic elastomers are polymers having rubbery properties. The rubbery property is present due to one of the components of the copolymer. There are various types of thermoplastic elastomers including styrene block copolymers, thermoplastic olefin, elastomeric alloy, thermoplastic polyurethane, thermoplastic co-polyester, a thermoplastic polyamide. Due to their rubbery properties with high strength and lightweight, thermoplastic elastomers find application in automotive and transportation, building and construction, footwear, electrical and electronics, medical, household appliances, adhesive, sealant, and coating. Growing demand from the automotive industry coupled with the rising demand from other application areas such as building and construction, footwear, etc. is expected to drive the demand for thermoplastic elastomers during the forecast period. Moreover, the growing demand for bio-based thermoplastic elastomers is going to push the demand further during the forecast period. Furthermore, high volatility in raw material prices is going to hamper the demand during the forecast period.  
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on a number of industries. Automotive and construction were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand for thermoplastic elastomers for the first half of 2020. The demand for thermoplastic elastomers fell during the coronavirus pandemic. 
Region-wise, Asia-pacific region holds the major share of global demand for thermoplastic elastomers due to the increasing demand for end-use industries such as automotive and construction. Moreover, increasing population and per capita income in emerging economies like India and China coupled with growing urbanization is another factor fuelling demand growth in Asia-Pacific.
