This comprehensive market report examines both classical vulcanized elastomers and thermoplastic elastomers for their interior and exterior end-uses as well as under-the-hood applications (UTH).

With increasing trends amongst the global automotive constructors to downsize engines, reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions, engines need to generate higher horsepower to compensate. This report explores these trends and the new demands placed on elastomers to withstand higher temperatures and resist chemical attack in order to last the lifecycle of the vehicle.
