These include the impact of the supply of a number of raw materials by the closure of refineries, and the switch to shale gas as a viable energy source. Butadiene is a case in point for this development. The emerging trends of e-mobility could have an effect on the demand of certain elastomers. There is also the prospect of different demands in the future, which could result in some materials being in oversupply and shortages of others. Despite these issues, the general consensus is that there will be an increasing demand for high-performance elastomers, with a forecast market in 2024 of 2.19 million tonnes.
