Market outlook of the thermoplastic vulcanizates market

Market research analysts predict the thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) market to grow at a rate of around 7% during the forecast period. The rising adoption of TPV as a replacement for PVC in the healthcare sector is the primary driver for the growth of this market. TPV's unique characteristics such as environment-friendliness, low drug absorption, toughness, and optical clarity have made them an ideal choice for the manufacturing of blood bags, catheters and disposable gloves. For instance, Johnson & Johnson and GE Healthcare, having increased their R&D spending to develop and introduce new TPV-based medical products in the market.

The growing popularity of olefin-based copolymer TPV is also anticipated to contribute to the market growth during the forecast period. Olefin-based copolymer TPV has a high abrasion resistance and is being used to replace traditional styrenic thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) in its commercial and industrial applications.

Segmentation by application and analysis of - automotive, medical, consumer goods, fluid handling

During 2014, the automotive sector led the market with a share of 51%.

New Report Released: - Global Thermoplastic Vulcanizates Market 2015-2019

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Thermoplastic Vulcanizates Market: Dynasol, DuPont, ExxonMobil, PolyOne and LCY

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: A. Schulman, Alliance Polymer and Services, Asahi Kasei, API, BASF, Entec Polymers, JSR, Kumho Polychem, LG Chem, Lubrizol, LyondellBasell, Mitsubishi Chemical, Sichuan Sunplas, Teknor Apex, Vi-Chem, and Zeon.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The rapid increase in global demand for consumer electronics and appliances with soft-touch and ergonomic design functionality in recent years has forced the consumer product manufacturers to incorporate TPV into their products. As a result, TPV is now being used in the production of various products in the consumer goods market, including soft grips for beer crates, food storage seals, and handles and functional elements for toothbrushes, shavers, hairbrushes, and other day-to-day use consumer goods.”

According to the report, TPV, since has inception, has been an integral part of the manufacturing processes in the automotive industry owing to its high strength-to-weight ratio, simplified part fabrication, and superior resistance to heat and chemicals. It has traditionally been used in a limited range of applications in this industry, including sealing systems, such as door and window seals, and the manufacturing of ancillaries for automotive interiors, such as instrument and door panels.

Further, the report states that constant fluctuations in the prices of raw materials used in the manufacture of TPV pose a challenge to TPV manufacturers.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
