Increasing demand from the automotive businesspromotes the Thermoplastic Elastom

Posted by rohan on December 9th, 2019

Market Overview:

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) are multi-user polymeric materials that are processed in the same way as plastic but have rubber properties. TPEs show high-performance characteristics like shock absorption, cleanliness, easy sterilization, dimensional stability, chemical, weather, and thermal resistance, and flexibility. TPEs can be quickly processed, molded, and recycled, and therefore production needs low energy costs and is eco-friendly. The global market was close to USD 23.25 billion by revenue, at the end of 2018 and is estimated to rise at a CAGR of 5.43% to reach around USD 30.29 billion in the foreseen period.
