What is Elastomers?
Elastomers are artificial or synthetic rubbers based on polymers. Majority of the Elastomers are based of thermosetting polymers. However, thermoplastic based Elastomers are also present commercially which are suitable for a small range of application. They are produced by the reaction of diisocyanate or polyisocyanate with polyol.
These elastomers are generally used to manufacture various products such as high resilience foam seating and insulation panels, microcellular gaskets and foam seals, elastomeric wheels of roller coaster, elevator, shopping carts, automotive suspension bushings, surface coatings, sealants and many more.
This report incorporates an in-depth assessment of Elastomers market by size, by type of plastic, by Vehicle type, by end user industries and geography. The major types of Elastomers encompassed in the scope includes Thermoset Elastomers and Thermoplastic Elastomers.
Market Research and Market Trends of Elastomers Ecosystem
The automotive industry is the most attractive industry for the Elastomers market with major emphasis on the thermoplastic elastomers. This is due to the given fact that elastomers acted as a replacement for rubbers and PVC. The low cost and high efficiency of the products has enabled the industry to grow immensely in Asian countries such as India, China, Thailand, etc. for Elastomers in the automotive segment.
Applications such as roofing, geotextiles along with industrial windowpane gaskets would drive the market in the construction industry. Majority of the revenues can be witnessed from the developing nations where commercial construction is growing at a rapid pace. Since the developed economies are experiencing relatively low growth rate in the construction sector, the market would not witness significant development in the construction industry.
Medical and health care is another major sector where elastomers markets are witnessing huge growth. Products such as encounter masks, healthcare tubing, teats for baby’s containers and a number of other such applications such as soft-touch co-injected surgical instruments in addition to toothbrushes and razors are driving the market for elastomers during the forecast period.
