Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE) Market

WiseGuy Reports market research analyst predicts the TPE market to witness a steady growth at a CAGR of around 8%, in terms of revenue, during the forecast period. The increased use of TPE products as a replacement for traditional materials in the automotive industry is driving the market growth. TPE, in comparison to natural rubber and EPDM, provides the manufacturer with increased design flexibility and reduced cost and enhanced long-term weather-resistance advantages. It also helps the manufacturers in reducing the overall weight of the vehicle and addressing the demand for lighter vehicles with increased fuel efficiency.
