The global elastomers market size is expected to grow owing to the wide-ranging applications of elastomers across numerous end-user industries, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Elastomers Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Nature (Thermoset, Thermoplastic), By Type (General Purpose, Specialty Elastomers, Thermoplastic Elastomer), By Application (Automotive, Adhesives & coatings, Consumer Goods, Sports & leisure, Electrical & Electronics, Industrial, Others) Others and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029”. Developed as an alternative to natural rubber, elastomers are essentially polymers composed of silicon, hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon, whose long-chain structures are linked at the intermolecular level, making them elastic as well as viscous. Owing to their unique properties, these materials have a high applicability quotient in various industries. For instance, hydraulic seals are widely utilized in the oil & gas industry to prevent leaks. Polyurethanes, as a result of high versatility and durability, are commonly used in textile manufacturing, particularly in the production of elastic garment materials such as spandex. Thus, on account of their several benefits, elastomers are highly demanded across the industrial spectrum, which is the primary factor driving the growth of this market.

Russia-Ukraine War Implication

The Russia-Ukraine war could change the Elastomers Market dynamics of Europe forever. The standoff has revived the predicament situation of the Cold War and pushed Europe to the brink of a major military conflict. The Russian aggression in Ukraine has redefined the global landscape in terms of business. As the global Elastomers Market was recuperating from the havoc wreaked by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine war has made several industry stakeholders skeptical.

The European Union is pushing for more sanctions against Russia, including halting imports of nuclear fuel from Russia and excluding Russia’s top lenders from the SWIFT banking system. Moreover, Russia has also imposed similar sanctions on most EU countries. The war crisis and sanctions have put a strain on global investment, trade, and economic activity. Therefore, skepticism and uncertainty remain prevalent regarding the conflict, its potential reach, and its longevity. Accordingly, the restoration of normal relations among partners could prove be a sign of improvement.

Market Driver

Advent of Thermoplastic Elastomers to Favor Market Growth

Adverse impacts of polymers on the environment have limited their adoption. However, with the emergence of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), there has been a resurgence of interest in these materials. TPE are a combination of the diverse properties of thermoplastics and vulcanized rubber, boasting of unique properties such as hardness, rigidity, and enhanced flexibility. Most importantly, this variety of elastomers is fully recyclable as they can be processed in many different ways, ranging from extrusion to injection molding. In addition, TPEs have generate less waste when processed, consume lower amount of energy, and have shorter cycle times, all of which make them sustainable materials. Many companies are also innovating along these lines. For instance, ELASTO UK has engineered a material that contains around 65-80% recycled polypropylene and rubber granules from used car tires. Advancements in TPE are, therefore, contributing to the elastomers market growth.
