Thermoplastic Vulcanizates Market Growth, Analysis and Forecast Upto 2027
Posted by Preet on September 13th, 2019
According to a new study of Fact.MR, sales of thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) are expected to exceed 388 thousand tons in 2018, and record a Y-o-Y growth at nearly 4.5% in 2019. Growth of the thermoplastic vulcanizates industry remains driven by a slew of factors, which range from robust requirement for lightweight materials with superior performance characteristics, to government regulations and initiatives in enhancing the vehicle fuel efficiency & economy.

The advent of thermoplastic vulcanizates took a direct aim at the cross-linked rubber, incorporating cross-linked EPDMs into polypropylene matrices. As TPVs are engineered to provide enhanced, long-term mechanical properties and superior performance with durability, thermoplastic vulcanizates manufacturers have been constantly targeting the cross-linked rubber industry.
The study finds that challenges prevail in the processing of standard thermoplastic elastomers, however the belief that greater difficulty in processing entails greater utility among manufacturers continues to underpin their demand and adoption in the market. Presence of cross-linked phase imparts TPVs with high melt viscosity, entailing the need for shear control, which in turn remains one of the key concerns among the thermoplastic vulcanizates market players.
Diverse benefits associated with the TPVs has led their adoption across various industrial sectors, including consumer electronics and medical. As consumer electronic gadgets and devices continue to witness high demand worldwide, manufacturers are increasingly focusing on the development of new products using materials with extraordinary performance characteristics. Hygiene and medical products are also key application areas of the thermoplastic vulcanizates, as medical device manufacturers continue to replace PVC and thermoset rubber with new materials to meet stringent environmental and health regulations.
