The Future of Thermoplastic Elastomers to 2020

Automotive and other transportation applications will continue to dominate the end-use market increasing their market share to 44% in 2020. Rising stars are medical and hygiene applications, as well as those for wire and cable showing the highest CAGRs and jointly occupying about 13% market share in 2015. The Future of Thermoplastic Elastomers to 2020 states that Asia continues to be the largest and fastest growth market for TPEs with China remaining the dominant player in this region. Commodity TPEs (TPE-S, TPE-O and TPE-V) occupy just below 80% market share, which will recede to very slightly less than this figure in 2020. New cutting-edge technologies are on the horizon, with continuous emphasis on the growth of biomass-sourced TPEs and a possible future for TPE-based smart rubbers.
