What are the Key Challenges Faced by Stakeholders of Thermoplastic Vulcanizates Market?

  • End-user inclination toward use of styrenic block copolymer, a high-performance thermoplastic elastomer type, is on an upswing on account of its optimal performance in pressure-sensitive applications. This, in turn, is likely to create significant challenges for the stakeholders of thermoplastic vulcanizates market.

  • Poor wear resistance of thermoplastic vulcanizates (TVPs) after repeated usage continues to be one of the key drawbacks hampering their adoption. This, in turn, is exerting high pressures on manufacturers to offer wear-resistant thermoplastic vulcanizates with enhanced shelf-life.

Thermoplastic Vulcanizates Market – Competitive Landscape

  • In 2019, ExxonMobil Corporation - a leading player in the thermoplastics vulcanizates market - inaugurated a 90,000 tonne/year resins plant and 140,000 tonne/year butyl plant in Singapore. This move was aimed at serving the increasing needs of Asian end-users which, in turn, will help the company to scale up its expansion across the key Asian countries. These two new production facilities will preeminently cater to Asia, wherein a burgeoning middle-class population is sustaining the demand for specialty products.

  • In 2018, DuPont - a leading player in the thermoplastic vulcanizates market - made an official announcement that it is going to make an investment of over $80 million for establishment of a new manufacturing unit in East China. This new manufacturing unit will be responsible for production of compounded and high-end engineering plastics & adhesives to cater to needs of multiple end-use verticals, such as electronics, transportation, and others. This planned manufacturing site is estimated to be fully operational in 2020. DuPont and the government officials of Zhangjiagang in East China signed this strategic deal at a grand ceremony held in Shanghai at the popular China International Import Expo (CIIE).

  • In 2017, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. - a key player in the thermoplastic vulcanizates market – made an official announcement of acquiring the business of thermoplastic styrene elastomers of Asahi Kasei Corp.'s Sunvieo. Utilized primarily for automotive applications, thermoplastic elastomers are being adopted as a viable alternative of polyvinyl chloride and vulcanized rubber. This new product launch will help the company tap into a wider customer base and attain long-term profitability.
