Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) replaced natural and synthetic rubber due to its
ability to form in various shapes adhering to many conventional and innovative
processability techniques, hence resulting in shapes of complex designs. TPEs replace PVCs
due to the hazardous chemical residue left by PVC. TPEs are environment friendly as they
can be melted and reshaped, thereby leaving very less wastage. TPEs have many advantages
over the materials it is replacing such as resistance towards weather, chemicals,
oxidation and delivering soft touch materials. Demand for soft touch applications adds to
the growth of TPEs. Evolving Bio based TPE’s environmental regulation in sectors such as
food, packaging and medical can create future market spaces for TPEs.

Automotive: Major market for TPE

Thermoplastic Elastomers Market
[http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/Market-Reports/thermoplastic-elastomers-market-1012.html ]
is segmented by major types such as SBC, TPO, TPV, TPU, COPE and PEBA. These individual
thermoplastic elastomers have application specific demands differentiated by cost and
efficiency. TPEs are useful in applications such as automotive parts, paving & roofing,
consumer & personal hygiene products, medical clothing, medical equipment, aircraft
coating, rail track, sports & leisure equipment, various types of footwear, baby care,
electronic appliances, baby-diapers, industrial & mining related cables, oil & gas
pipelines and several others. These materials result in minimizing energy consumption and
increase in efficiency of the applications.

The global market for thermoplastic elastomers in terms of revenue was estimated to be
worth $15.1 billion in 2012, and is expected to reach $23.9 billion by 2018, growing at a
CAGR of 8.1%, in terms of revenue, from 2013 to 2018.

The Asia Pacific Region dominated the global thermoplastic elastomer market,
accounting for 42.4% of the global thermoplastic elastomer revenue in 2012.

The Asia Pacific is expected to have the Highest Market Revenue in 2018, followed by
the North American Market. Rest of the World, a collection of individual country markets,
is expected to be the fastest growing market in the future, growing at a CAGR of 10.1%
from 2013 to 2018, owing to rising consumption in this region where the end-user markets
of TPE are growing steadily. The European market is expected to grow at a rate of 6.7%, in
revenue terms and 5.1% in consumption terms from 2013 to 2018.
