World Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs)

As Quoted In Modern Plastics On the Web

Global demand for thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) will grow 6.3 percent annually through 2011, as they continue to replace natural and synthetic rubber, rigid thermoplastics and metal. China will gain market share but the US will remain the top producer of some products such as olefinic-based TPEs.

This study analyzes the $10.4 billion world TPE industry. It presents historical demand data for 1996, 2001 and 2006 and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by type (e.g., styrenic block copolymers, thermoplastic polyolefins, thermoplastic polyurethanes, thermoplastic vulcanizates, copolyester elastomers); market (e.g., motor vehicles, industrial products, footwear, asphalt and bitumen modification); world region and for 16 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 major producers, including Kraton Polymers, AES, Dow Chemical, Sinopec, LeeChang Yung, BASF, Repsol, and Lubrizol.
