  • This is an increase on TPE’s 2014–18 CAGR of 5.8%.
  • The major driving force is the global automotive industry, particularly electrically driven vehicles, sales of which are growing at double-digit CAGRs. The need to increase their driving range will demand serious weight reductions and as such, greater use of plastics and elastomers in construction. Heavy goods, buses and other forms of transportation will also benefit. While slower to take off the autonomous vehicle will require even more cables and electrical equipment than the electrically driven vehicle. Indeed, they are likely to become one and the same in the future.
  • Classical rubber replacement continues to be a major contribution to TPE’s growth.
