World Thermoplastics Elastomers (TPEs)

As Quoted In European Plastics News

Global TPE demand will rise six percent annually through 2013, with China making up 42 percent of new demand. Excluding China, TPE sales will remain concentrated in the developed markets of the US, Western Europe and Japan, especially for higher performance materials such as TPVs and copolyester elastomers (COPEs).

This study analyzes the 3.1 million metric ton world TPE industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by market (e.g., motor vehicles, footwear, industrial products), type (e.g., styrenic block copolymers, thermoplastic polyolefins, thermoplastic polyurethanes, thermoplastic volcanizates), world regional market and for 13 major national markets.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 industry players, including Kraton Polymers, ExxonMobil and Dow Chemical.
