The global high-temperature elastomers market attained revenue of USD 8760.5 Million in 2019 and is estimated to garner USD 14220.7 Million in 2028 by growing at a CAGR of 6.84% over the forecast period 2021-2028. The global elastomers industry is steadily increasing on account of the increased adoption and application of elastomers in various end-use sectors such as automotive, medical, consumer goods, and others.
Elastomers are classified into diene, non-diene, and thermoplastic elastomers. Diene elastomers are derived from monomers containing two sequential double bonds. Polyisoprene, polychloroprene, and polybutadiene are typical examples of diene elastomers. Contrarily, non-diene elastomers do not have any double bonds in the structure. Therefore, cross-linking in these requires other methods than vulcanization, such as divinyl monomers and trifunctional monomers or copolymerization with small diene monomers such as butadiene. Non-diene elastomers include polysiloxanes, polyurethane, butyl rubber, and fluoro-elastomers.
Another major category for elastomers is a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), which exhibits dual characteristics, including high elasticity of thermoset vulcanized rubber at room temperature and processability of thermoplastics at high temperature. In addition, TPEs can be repeatedly deformed, melted, and cooled without affecting the standard product quality and thus can be recycled easily.
The major driving factor for the elastomers industry is the rapidly growing demand for lightweight, high-performance materials in the automotive industry. Concurrently, regulations pertaining to replaceable PVC with a comparatively eco-friendly alternative such as TPEs in the automotive and construction industries have also strengthened the market growth.
Regionally, the global market is segmented into five major regions comprising North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Among the markets in these regions, the Asia Pacific high-temperature elastomers market held the largest market revenue of USD 3946.6 Million in 2019 and is further estimated to reach USD 7335.8 Million by the end of 2028 by growing with a CAGR of 8.71% during the forecast period. The Asia-Pacific high-temperature elastomer market accounted for one of the largest regional markets globally. Asia-Pacific has a significantly large industry for automobile parts, pharmaceuticals, and aerospace, and the industry uses high-temperature elastomers as their raw material. These factors can be considered as the driving factors for the growth of the high-temperature elastomers market in the region. China has the second-largest pharmaceutical industry globally and is witnessing healthy growth in the coming years. Demand for high-temperature elastomers, an essential component of the pharmaceutical industry, will remain high in the country as per the current scenario. The automotive industry in the country is also the largest in the world in terms of automobile production since 2008. These factors can be considered as driving factors for the country's high-temperature elastomers market growth. Japan has a high potential market for high-temperature elastomers market. Japan is rapidly developing its medical devices market because of its increasing healthcare expenditure and growing geriatric population, with over 25% of the Japanese population older than 65. Due to the highly developed pharmaceuticals and automotive industry, demand for high-temperature elastomers will remain high in the country during the forecasted period. In India, the high-temperature elastomers market extensively depends on the pharmaceutical industry. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
