Elastomer refers to a type of polymer which inhibits the properties of elasticity. Elastomers deform when force is applied and return to their original shape after the removal of the force. It is composed of oxygen, hydrogen, carbon and silicon monomers. Rapid growth of automotive industry across the globe has fostered the growth of the elastomers in automotive sector. Automotive elastomers are used in the manufacturing of automobiles parts such as seals, hoses, insulators, engine mounts, gaskets and other parts. Furthermore, increased demand and adoption of fuel-efficient vehicles, ongoing trend of electrification of vehicle along with increasing disposable income is anticipated to be the dynamic factor behind the growth of automotive elastomer market over the forecast period. Based on Bureau of Economic Analysis data, personal income increased by USD 47.0 billion (0.2%) and disposable personal income (DPI) rose by USD 37.6 billion (0.2%) in July 2022. 

Global Automotive Elastomers Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Adoption Of Lightweight Materials For Vehicles - By 2030, 25% of the U.S. vehicles is expected to reduce fuel consumption by using lightweight components and high-performance engines enabled by advanced materials, saving more than 5 billion gallons of fuel annually.

Modern automobiles require advanced materials to maximize fuel efficiency while maintaining safety and performance. Lightweight materials have the potential to increase vehicle efficiency. A 10% reduction in vehicle weight can improve fuel economy by 5%-7%. In the automotive field, thermoplastic elastomers and high-performance fiber composite materials have become key materials for lightweight design. These factors are estimated to propel the demand for automotive elastomers over the forecast period.

  • Increase In The Production Of Motor Vehicles Globally - According to data from the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the global production of motor vehicles rose by 583,74,162 vehicles in 2000 to 917,86,861 vehicles in 2019. 

  • Growing Demand For Autonomous Vehicles And Autopilot Technology- For instance, industry analysts project an annual growth rate of 15% for self-driving vehicles. As many as 65% of all Chinese passenger vehicles will be automated by 2040. Also, 34% of Americans say self-driving vehicles are safer than traditional vehicles. 

  • Luxury Car Sales Increased Worldwide – It was observed that, in the period January-May 2022, 16,500 luxury vehicles were sold in India, a 53% increase from 10,500 units sold in the previous year.

  • Increasing Investment And Development In Electric Vehicles - For instance, a line-up of five electric vehicles will be produced by Mahindra & Mahindra in the next five years with an investment of USD 1 billion. With a goal to sell 2 lakh electric vehicles by FY-2027, they are taking a new approach to electric vehicles.


  • High Cost Of The Elastomer
  • Fluctuating Price Of Raw Material For Thermoplastic Elastomers
  • Strict Government Regulations

The global automotive elastomers market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into the tire, exterior application, interior application, under the hood, weather seal application, and others. Among these segments, the tire segment is anticipated to capture the largest market size in the global automotive elastomers market owing to the rapid manufacturing of high-end vehicles and the increasing production volume of tires worldwide. It was observed that approximately 168 million tires were produced in India in 2021. A large portion of this volume was comprised of tires manufactured for trucks, buses, two-wheelers, three-wheelers, passenger cars, and light commercial vehicles. In order to improve vehicle performance, elastomers are used in the manufacture of tires. There are several intermediates that contribute to the chemical system in tire rubber which gives it the ability to seal reliably, be flexible, and be durable.
