Automotive Elastomers Market

Arlanxeo (Netherlands) and ExxonMobil (US) are the Key Players in the Automotive Elastomers Market

Automotive elastomers are specialty elastomers, primarily used to enhance overall performance and to increase fuel efficiency of vehicles in which these are used, for automotive applications, such as O-rings, gaskets, automotive seals, turbocharger hoses, oil-filter gaskets, air filters, fan couplings, and radiator hoses. The global automotive elastomers market is projected to reach USD 58.82 Billion by 2022, registering a CAGR of 5.0% between 2017 and 2022. Increasing demand for high efficiency and rising use of lightweight materials in the automotive industry, the growing automotive industry in the Asia Pacific, and stringent emission regulations are the key factors fueling demand for automotive elastomers around the world. However, instability in raw material prices is a key challenge faced by the manufacturers of automotive elastomers.
