Global demand for thermoplastic elastomers in the industrial market is forecast to grow 3.5% yearly to 823,000 metric tons in 2024. Gains will be supported by:

  • ongoing replacement of EPDM and thermoset rubbers by TPEs worldwide
  • continued healthy growth in manufacturing output in the Asia/Pacific region, where TPEs have additional room to penetrate the industrial products market
  • technical innovations expanding the range of industrial TPE applications , such as the development of overmolding, flame-retardant, and abrasion-resistant grades

However, stronger growth will be restrained by the need to recover that arose from the closure of “nonessential” businesses, raw material shortages, and falling investment in new machinery during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

Better Performing TPVs & TPUs Increasingly Penetrate Industrial Products Market

Thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) and thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) are expected to experience above average growth through 2024 due to:

  • TPVs are easy to process and gave superior performance abilities compared to EPDM rubber and other TPEs. Good opportunities for TPVs will exist in hoses, gaskets, and seals.
  • TPUs have excellent abrasion resistance, oil, and chemical resistance as well as good load bearing properties. Healthy gains will be seen for conveyor treads, pump diaphragms, and weather stripping.

Styrenic block copolymers (SBCs) will remain the most widely used TPE in industrial products, accounting for 32% of demand in 2024, with this position supported by SBC’s soft touch – useful for such applications as knobs and grips – and its relatively low price. SBC’s market share will continue to decline, however, as other TPEs with properties such as high impact strength and light weight penetrate more demanding industrial applications.

Asia/Pacific Offers Best Opportunities; Demanding Applications Spur Gains in Other Markets

China is a massive market for TPEs used in industrial products that will account for 74% of absolute regional gains and 50% of absolute global gains through 2024 due to the country’s massive manufacturing base. India is also expected to see above average growth, with gains in both countries driven by expanding penetration of TPEs in the manufacture of an array of industrial products as well as by increases in machinery manufacturing.

Although TPE penetration is already high in Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan – as well as in North America and Western Europe – are mature, additional opportunities exist for TPEs to supplant thermoset rubber, particularly in more demanding applications such as engine components or those used in metalworking where fluid exposure is high.
