The global Elastomers Market size, as of 2020 is expected close to USD 71,017.2 million, providing plenty of opportunities for market players. The market is foreseen to escalate at a positive CAGR of 5.58% throughout the forecast period of 2020 to 2025.
An elastomer is a variety of elastic polymer with viscoelasticity, also named as amorphous polymers because they keep going a glass transition temperature. In general, elastomers are both thermosets and thermoplastic-based on the long polymer chains. Intermolecular bonds in these chains are not fastened firmly in these composites that lets these polymers to respond to macroscopic pressures forming natural rubber. This natural rubber is the primary choice in the manufacturing of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems. Natural rubber is generally utilized in automotive companies, particularly in the making of tires. The natural rubber has some great properties like high tensile strength, high adhesion to metals, and high abrasion and tears resistance. The thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer can be employed for offering resistance to UV, improve mechanical performance, and reduce thickness with a softer touch. Thermoplastics are the most common elastomers in the automotive sector. Besides, elastomers in various colors can be developed to match the color of automobiles as it provides better performance even at low temperatures with high resistance to abrasion.
Elastomers are elastic polymers that are slightly bonded crossly and are amorphous along with glass transition temperature. They can be bifurcated as thermoplastic, diene, and into non-diene. Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) involving SBS and SIS block copolymers have firm and subtle repeat units. Elastomeric fragments are developed by three major production methods such as injection molding, compression molding, and transfer molding. Elastomers are experiencing a good call from the automotive companies on account of the escalating requirements for more-performance and lightweight composites in vehicle production. Major features, such as high flexibility, strength, and pliability, enable it to be ample material in various applications in the automotive sector. The product is utilized in the making of puncture-repellent seals, safeguarding of wires and cables, and for better impact-resistance in-vehicle insides.
PolyOne GLS Thermoplastic Elastomers, a leader in high-performance thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) solutions across the world, has confirmed about Versaflex™ HC for several infusion therapy stoppers and septums. In comparison to conventional composites, Versaflex™ HC enhances patient safety and decreases making complexity while streamlining regulatory compliance for quicker speed to market.
Evonik introduced a novel generation of PEBA at the trade fair for plastics of K2019, on the occasion of celebrating 40 days. It is considered as the launch of a novel generation of thermoplastic elastomers under its renowned brand name VESTAMID.
Drivers & Restraints of the Elastomers Market
The automotive business is the most developing fragment for the elastomers industry. Elastomers have developed as the perfect alternative to polyvinyl chloride and vulcanized rubber that can be used in the interiors and in the exteriors of an automobile. The adoption of elastomers reduced the overall weight, which can be pivotal as it enhances fuel efficiency and reduces harmful gas emissions. The medical market is also estimated as the critical drivers for the global elastomers market. Features like excellent durability, strength, pliability, and excellent flexibility have found its use in the making of medical stoppers, gloves, and gaskets. Also, the rising call for high insulation and molding products in medical businesses are further stoking demand. Elastomers are famous for their extended properties. To make these products aging repellent, the elastomer goes through numerous procedures like the Arrhenius approach. Throughout this procedure, the temperature is set at high magnitudes. This rise in temperature can result in manipulated chemical bonds that can affect the properties of the end-products. The high production and maintenance costs are also a limitation in the global elastomers business. Due to this issue, the elastomers business is facing a lethargic expansion in the rising nations.
