Thermoplastic Elastomers: United States

Thermoplastic Elastomers: United States

This report forecasts to 2022 US thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) demand and production in metric tons. Total TPE demand is also forecasted to 2022 in US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand by volume is segmented by product in terms of: thermoplastic polyolefins, styrenic block copolymers, polyolefin elastomers, thermoplastic vulcanizates, and other products. Total demand by volume is also segmented by market as follows: motor vehicles; asphalt and roofing; adhesives, sealants, and coatings; consumer goods; and other markets.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand by volume is provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017; total production, total demand by value, and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2007, 2012, and 2017.

For the purposes of this report, a TPE is defined as any thermoplastic material that exhibits elastomeric properties; TPEs offer the functional performance characteristics of thermoset rubber, but are processed using the methods and machinery of rigid thermoplastics. Styrenic block copolymers that do not exhibit elastomeric properties (i.e., high styrene products that contain roughly 60% or more styrene) are excluded from this report’s scope.
