The global cast elastomers market is expected to reach USD 1.53 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 4.86% during the forecast period 2021 - 2026.
The Cast Elastomers Market includes a better growth pace within the market, which is boosted by the demand for hot-cast elastomers in different applicants, which require high abrasion resistance and high load-bearing capacity. Elastomers are defined as rubber-like polymers which have high elasticity as compared to any other material. When distorted by external forces, elastomers are ready to resist flow sort of a viscous liquid. The flexibility of polyurethane cast elastomers provides the flexibility to attain an optimum set of physical properties required for a particular application.
The demand for cast elastomers is increasing sharply in different industries because of their various advantages of chemical and mechanical properties over other materials. The demand for cast elastomers is high within the emerging and developing nations because of the increase in the number of manufacturing industries in these nations. However, such elastomers possess several risks to the environment and human health, affecting market growth.
Manali Petrochemicals Ltd. (MPL), an organization that has introduced the highly specialized cast elastomers of Notedome Ltd. Asia, has started the manufacture of Notedome high-performance polyurethanes in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.
Increasing demand for cast elastomers from various end-use industries because of various advantages over conventional materials may be a major factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global cast elastomers market. Additionally, rapid industrialization in developed and developing countries and the increasing number of producing units in emerging economies due to low-cost labor and the simple availability of staple are expected to support the worldwide market's growth to a certain extent.
Furthermore, elastomers have excellent physical properties like cargo bearing capacity and high abrasion resistance, which is anticipated to extend their demand from the automotive and transportation sectors. This is often another factor expected to further support the worldwide market's growth to a certain extent. Additionally, the rising demand for cast elastomers from the oil and gas sector is one of the factors that is expected to further boost the cast elastomers market.
The cast elastomers have harmful effects on the environment and human health, which may be a major factor that is anticipated to restrain the growth of the worldwide cast elastomers market. Additionally, stringent government regulations and fluctuating raw material prices are among other factors expected to limit the demand of the cast elastomers market globally. Additionally, strict regulations are imposed to decrease the negative impact of the product, which will decrease the industry growth within the review period.
Opportunities in Cast Elastomers Market:
Technological advancements and increasing R&D activities by major players are predicted to create potential revenue opportunities for players operating within the target market over the forecast period. Additionally, increasing expansion activities through strategic partnerships and agreements is another factor expected to further support the target market's growth to a a certain extent.
The global cast elastomers market is segmented on the type and end-user industry.
The cast elastomers market is classified into hot Cast and cold Cast based on type. The hot-cast elastomers segment is anticipated to be the dominating segment because of the increasing demand for hot-cast elastomers in oil and gas, mining, and industrial. The segment is anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment while expanding at a CAGR of 4.5% and amassing a market price of USD 1,050 million by 2026.
The global market's application-based segments for cast elastomers are industrial, automotive, mining, oil, and gas agriculture. The industrial segment is predicted to be the leading segment because of the rising demand for cast elastomers in industrial applications such as foundry, casting pattern grit, blast masks, rolls, and diaphragms, curtains, metal handling, and pads, amongst others. The segment is additionally projected to be the fastest-growing segment and might record a CAGR of around 5% while procuring a market price of USD 520 million by 2026.
The availability of cheap labor is expected to invite key manufacturers for investment that can offer lucrative opportunities for the market's regional expansion. Among all, China is anticipated to procure the largest market share by acquiring a market value of USD 260 million by 2026. As per the assessment, the regional market is expected to achieve a market value of USD 880 million while expanding at a CAGR of 5.5% by 2026.Besides, the region is expected to progress due to the high investments and ongoing R&D activities.
The US, Canada, and Mexico are some of the lucrative markets that can make a significant contribution in developing the regional market.
The outbreak of pandemics has negatively impacted the market due to the lockdown imposed in various parts of the world. The lockdown resulted in a temporary shutdown of several manufacturing units, which disrupted the supply and demand chain, thereby severely affecting the cast elastomers industry. The cast elastomers market is expected to have the fastest growth rate in 2021, with the increasing demand from all the sectors as the world is slowly falling into a normal state.
