The elastomers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8 %, leading to revenue of potentially up to USD 107.1 billion by the end of 2025, according to a recent MRFR analysis in their report on the global projections of the market. The growing demand for elastomers for various applications in developing nations such as China and India open up many opportunities for a wide range of elastomeric products to be used. Moreover, the escalating demand for high-performance bio-based elastomers for many applications is predicted to provide profitable prospects for the elastomers market's major players.

Increased Demand Leading to Market Growth


The major factor driving the growth of the market is the rising demand for elastomers for miscellaneous automotive applications owing to their flexibility and durability. The three prominent applications of automotive elastomers are tire, interior, and exterior.

For instance, thermoplastic polyurethane films (TPU) on the account of high abrasion and scratch resistance is used in automotive seating applications such as headrests, arm sets, and lumbar support systems. Additionally, the expanding automobile industry in developing countries such as China, India, and others offers huge scope for the utilization of broad range of elastomeric products. In addition, the increasing demand for elastomers for biomedical applications such as controlled drug delivery systems, hydrogels, and tissue engineering is further driving the market growth worldwide.

Furthermore, the growing need to produce high-performance bio-based elastomers for numerous engineering applications is projected to create lucrative opportunities for the key players operating in the elastomers market.

However, the fluctuating raw material and crude prices are likely to hamper the global elastomers market during the assessment period.
