Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer Market Overview

Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer market size is forecast to reach US$1.22 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 3.8% during 2021-2026Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomers, (TPE-E) combines the properties of high-performance elastomers and flexible polymers. These high-strength materials, also known as thermoplastic rubbers, are known for their ability to withstand multiple flex cycles and their resistance to a variety of solvents and lubricants. TPE-Es have a strong impact strength even at low temperatures and can withstand temperatures up to 300°F. PET resin is one of the most frequently used thermoplastics, especially in the packaging industry. In outdoor conditions, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber both provide sealing and insulation. They can be molded into specific shapes or produced from sponge or solid material sheets and extrusions. Polyester (polyethylene terephthalate (PET)) is the most common fiber used in automobile textile production. The growing use of TPE-Es in suspension bushings for automotive performance applications because of its greater resistance to deformation when compared to regular rubber bushings is expected to drive the market in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

Currently, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Plastic and the rubber industry were affected in multiple ways. There was a supply disruption of raw materials. A delay in farming activities and latex collection further exacerbated the problem. Critical inputs like plastic, carbon black, and rubber compounds were in short supply due to global economic turmoil and import restrictions. For a sector dominated by MSMEs that do not often have solid business continuity planning, the delay in farming activities also resulted in liquidity and working capital concerns. They rely on consistent cash flows to cover their working capital needs and pay their employees. The industry's prospects were further harmed by worldwide market volatility. During the pandemic, however, the market is steadily rebounding due to the growth of TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) in the medical, as well as food and beverage packaging industries.

Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Belting segment held the largest share in Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomers Market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR 4.5% during 2021-2026. Drive Belts, Conveyor Belts, Weighing Belts, Process Belts, Vacuum Belts, Vacuum Timing Belts, Thermo Belts, Food Processing Belts, ATM-Bill Ejector Belts, and Credit Card Transfer Belts are all made with Hytrel, a thermoplastic polyester elastomer with great durability and flexibility. A metal and x-ray detecting conveyor belt is being developed using DuPont Hytrel TPC-ET thermoplastic elastomer. DuPont Performance Materials teamed up with Esbelt, a conveyor belt manufacturer, to develop a unique, effective polymer that allows for food contamination detection. The new conveyor belt improves food makers' capacity to demonstrate due diligence by controlling the quality of the product on the belt using metal and x-ray detection. Based on the special properties of TPO and TPEE coatings, Habasit P line belts were designed specifically for the tobacco industry. Belt surfaces are critical in tobacco processing because they must serve a variety of functions while enduring harsh environmental conditions such as humidity, sand or dirt, and mechanical impacts. As a result, the increased use of TPEEs across a variety of core sectors is expected to boost the market in the next years.

Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Automotive segment held the largest share in the Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 6.2% during 2021-2026. Polyester (polyethylene terephthalate (PET)) is the most common fibre used in automobile textile production. According to the SVOA Materials Science & Technology Journal, global TPEEs manufacturing capacity surpassed 150,000 tons per year in 2019, while market demand surpassed 120,000 tons.
