Elastomers are polymers that have both elasticity & viscosity (viscoelastic) and have the weak intermolecular force of interactions between the molecules. Most of the elastomers are thermoset but thermoplastic elastomers are usually preferred for injecting molding application. Elastomers have glass transition temperatures below room temperature that gives them flexibility above transition temperatures (and so at room temperatures). Elastomers have strong demands in various end-use industries due to desired flexibility. Prominent applications of elastomers include seals, adhesives, molded flexible parts in automotive, etc.

Elastomers find a variety of applications in various end-use industries such as automotive, medical, packaging, consumer goods, etc. Their high applicability and ease of usage, make them widely used in various end-use industries. The demand for speciality elastomers is continuously increasing, especially for applications that include exposure to the harsh environment and prolong lifespan. Polymer modification is one of the trending applications of elastomers. Elastomers are prominently employed in applications requiring high-temperature resistance, weather ability, oil resistance, high pressure, exposure to ozone, etc.  

Key Market Driver -

Wide usability & adoption of elastomers in various end-use industries drives the market.

Key Market Restraint -

The volatility in the raw material prices restricts the elastomers market growth.

However, fluctuating raw materials prices affect the prices of elastomers. Elastomers are generally much expensive as compared to other plastics and polymeric materials. Also, the inability of elastomers to bear high load restricts its use. Also, elastomers are exposed to various rules & regulations that restrict the market growth.
