The high-temperature elastomers that comprise properties such as chemical, corrosion and thermal resistance among others are known as thermosetting elastomers. These thermosetting elastomers are extensively being used in many industries such as electronics, transportation, building & construction, oil& gas and electrical. The global high temperature elastomers market is expected to generate revenue of USD 16.8 billion by 2024 and is further anticipated to witness CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. Elastomers posses elastic and viscosity properties and are considered to be a bundle of polymers.
Moreover, increasing urbanization and industrialization in emerging economies is expected to further bolster the growth of global high temperature elastomers market. The rampant demand from transportation mainly pertaining to aircrafts and automobile industry is further anticipated to contribute effectively towards the growth of global high temperature elastomers market.
The rapid increase of automotive industry along with extensive utilization of high-temperature elastomers is majorly driving the growth of global high temperature elastomers market. The automotive industry in developing economies such as Latin America and Asia-Pacific are observing significant growth due to rapid growth in high temperature elastomers market. These elastomers serve various beneficial properties such as flexibility, durability and resistance to automotive lubricants and excessive heat.
However, the installation of high capital oriented manufacturing unit along with higher production cost of the elastomers as compared to that of ordinary elastomers is the major factor hindering the growth of global high temperature elastomers market. Ordinary elastomers are comparatively more cost-effective, although they do not perform preferably in high temperature and performs functions in an effective manner. Moreover, the cost associated with components developed from high-performance modules is higher than another elastomer as a result high temperature elastomer market is expected to observe hindrance in its growth in the near future.
On the basis of application, global high temperature elastomers market is segmented into semiconductor & electronics, automobile & transportation, industrial machinery, consumer products, healthcare and others. Automobile and transportation was the largest application area in the market, contributing more than 50.0% revenue in 2017. The automobile industry are constantly utilizing high temperature elastomers in their business operations as it helps the manufacturers in producing other machinery parts of this domain along with under the hood modules.
On the basis of type, the global high temperature elastomers market is segmented into fluorocarbon, silicone, perfluoroelastomers, fluorosilicone and others. Others segment can be further sub segmented as polyacrylate and nitrile. Among all these segments silicone elastomers is projected to generate largest revenue of USD 11.5 billion by 2024. The increasing market revenue of this segment is attributed towards huge demand for silicone elastomers from the automobile and construction industries that are particularly driving the growth of global high temperature elastomers market. For instance in automotive industry, silicone elastomers are used as vibration dampers and in construction domain these elastomers are used as a sealant material.
