Thermoplastic Elastomers Market Surpass $27.8 Billion By 2026 | CAGR 6.7%

Author: Acumen Research and Consulting

The global thermoplastic elastomers market size is expected to exceed around USD 27.8 billion by 2026, the market is estimated to grow at 6.7% CAGR during the forecast period. Rise in the usage of thermoplastic elastomers in medical devices is one of the factors that is expected to boost the growth of the global thermoplastic elastomers market.

Thermoplastic elastomers are mainly used in the automotive sector. Due to the multiple benefits of thermoplastic elastomers, the automobile sector is progressively replacing the conventional elastomers and standard plastics. This thermoplastic elastomer provides a mixture of both elastic and thermoplastic properties that has led to increased adoption in the automotive industry. The thermoplastic elastomers can be tailored as per the requirements in various medical application. The medical devices are often exposed to a range of fluids that helps in reducing the effectiveness of these devices. In order to avoid it, the medical devices companies are mostly using thermoplastic elastomer materials instead of over PVC, phthalate-based materials, latex, and other materials. The thermoplastic elastomers are not more affected by the chemicals, so they are expected to be used widely in medical devices in the upcoming years. Additionally, the thermoplastic elastomers are extensively used in seals, prosthetic cushions, closures, tubing, caps, training models, surgical positioners, anti-slip grip handles or surfaces, dental and medical hoods, and others. The demand for thermoplastic elastomers in medical devices is estimated to rise in the upcoming years, due to their elasticity and high barrier properties.

Thermoplastic elastomers are broadly used by automotive manufacturers for various applications such as interior trim, skins, hoses, glazing seals, grommets, sleeves, airbag doors, over-molded films, slush molding, wires and cables, shift knobs and others. Stiff plastics or rubber that consist of PVCs are being slowly blocked out by many of the automakers, due to the environment-related concerns. Consequently, these hard plastics or PVCs have been replaced by soft-touch thermoplastic elastomers. The transformational shift from conventional elastomers to thermoplastic elastomers in terms of preference among automotive OEMs is expected to drive the demand for the global thermoplastic elastomers market over the coming years. Rise in the usage of thermoplastic elastomers in automotive components due to their exceptional properties is anticipated to increase the demand for thermoplastic elastomers during the forecast period.
