Growth Drivers and Challenges

The growth of automotive elastomers market is driven by increasing demand for lightweight vehicles and strict emission rules. Further, increased demand and adoption of fuel-efficient vehicles is expected to positively impact the growth of global automotive elastomer market. Moreover, spiked growth of automotive industry in the developing regions is expected to garner the growth of global automotive elastomer market. Ongoing trend of electrification of vehicle is anticipated to be the dynamic factor behind the growth of automotive elastomer market.

Government regulatory bodies are focused toward creating awareness among consumers regarding the carbon emission generated from automotive. For instance, the government bodies based in Europe provide incentives such as tax reduction or exemption for electric vehicles. Further, these tax rates play an important role for the demand of product. Apart from this, increasing demand for low weight automobiles has been witnessed in recent years. The automotive elastomers help the vehicle manufacturers to reduce the weight of the vehicle. Moreover, advantages offered by automotive elastomers such as customization and high performance is one of key factors driving the growth of the automotive elastomer market. However, high cost of the elastomer is projected to dampen the growth of global automotive elastomer market. Moreover, fluctuating price of raw material of elastomers is anticipated to further restrain the growth of the market.
