Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) replaced natural and synthetic rubber due to its ability to form in various shapes adhering to many conventional and innovative processability techniques, hence resulting in shapes of complex designs. TPEs replace PVCs due to the hazardous chemical residue left by PVC. TPEs are environment friendly as they can be melted and reshaped, thereby leaving very less wastage. TPEs have many advantages over the materials it is replacing such as resistance towards weather, chemicals, oxidation and delivering soft touch materials. Demand for soft touch applications adds to the growth of TPEs.Evolving Bio based TPEs, environmental regulation in sectors such as food, packaging and medical can create future market spaces for TPEs.
Automotive: Major market for TPE
Thermoplastic market is segmented by major types such as SBC, TPO, TPV, TPU, COPE and PEBA. These individual thermoplastic elastomers have application specific demands differentiated by cost and efficiency. TPEs are useful in applications such as automotiveparts, paving & roofing, consumer & personal hygiene products, medical clothing, medical equipment, aircraft coating, rail track, sports & leisure equipment, various types of footwear, baby care, electronic appliances, baby-diapers, industrial & mining related cables, oil & gas pipelines and several others. These materials result in minimizing energy consumption and increase in efficiency of the applications.
