In a recent business intelligence study, FactMR presents the nitty-gritty of the global thermoplastic vulcanizates market considering 2014-2018 as the historic year and 2019–2029 as the stipulated timeframe. The business report highlights the drivers, restraints, opportunities and trends affecting thermoplastic vulcanizates market growth. Further, all the market shares associated with the market as well as the segments are expressed in terms of value and volume. The thermoplastic vulcanizates market study outlines the key regions – Latin America, North America, MEA, Europe and APEJ – along with the countries contributing the most in the respective regions.

The study finds that leading automakers around the globe are putting efforts to meet growing requirement for innovative materials in the production of exterior parts. Nearly 50% sales of the thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) were accounted by the automotive exteriors in 2018. Growing adoption of TPV in under the hood applications for heavy-duty vehicles and passenger cars, along with the material’s recyclability, excellent stiffness, and environment-sustainability, continue to augur well for growth of the thermoplastic vulcanizates industry.

According to the study, leading automotive vendors are working on the design & development of novel TPVs with excellent light-triggered/magnetic/thermal shape memory-supported self-healing property. The innovation is further expected to pave way for next-generation self-healing material designs. Key players in thermoplastic vulcanizates market are also concentrating on the development of foamable variants, which offer effective sealing to windows and doors, and eliminate complications entailed by urethane seals. This alludes significant adoption of the TPVs in the building & construction industry, with sales accounting for nearly two-fifth share of the market in 2018, according to the study.

Cross-Linked Rubber Industry – A Key Target Area for TPV Manufacturers

The advent of thermoplastic vulcanizates took a direct aim at the cross-linked rubber, incorporating cross-linked EPDMs into polypropylene matrices. As TPVs are engineered to provide enhanced, long-term mechanical properties and superior performance with durability, thermoplastic vulcanizates manufacturers have been constantly targeting the cross-linked rubber industry.

Thermoplastic Vulcanizates Sales Remain High in North America

The study finds that North America continues to remain the most lucrative market for thermoplastic vulcanizates, underpinned by robust sales in the automotive industry, complemented by demand from consumer goods and healthcare sector. Regulatory regarding enhancing the fuel economy and efficiency of vehicles, and curtailing the fossil fuel usage, continue to succor North America’s supremacy in the thermoplastic vulcanizates market. East Asia is also expected to remain an attractive market for thermoplastic vulcanizates, upheld by rapid industrialization in key emerging economies of the region, including China, India, and Indonesia.
