The Thermoplastic Elastomers market size is estimated to be USD 24.7 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 33.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.5%. Thermoplastic elastomers are a class of polymers having properties of both thermoplastics and elastomers. They are obtained by linking thermoplastics with elastomeric rubbers. Thermoplastic elastomers provide advantages of both plastics and rubber, and hence the new form created by their combination is adaptable to many applications.
Thermoplastic elastomers are recyclable, environment-friendly, and safe to use in medical and food packaging applications. They are widely used because of their easy moldability at room temperatures due to heating, like plastics and elastomers. Owing to their properties, such as heat stability, smoothness, wear resistance, and scratch resistance, thermoplastic elastomers are used in various end-use industries.
The demand for Thermoplastic Elastomers is mainly catered to by global players manufacturing for various end-use industries. Some of the leading companies involved in the manufacturing of Thermoplastic Elastomers are Arkema S.A (France), Asahi Kasei Corporation (Japan), BASF SE(Germany), Covestro Ag (Germany) and Huntsman Corporation (US). These companies, along with other regional companies, cater to the demand for Thermoplastic Elastomers globally.
